Otorrhea in Children After Tubes for Persistent Middle-Ear Effusion
So…once the tubes are punctured through the eardrum we are surprised that drainage for the ear persists in a chunk of young patients? I have a better idea…instead of the surgery in the first place, we remove common allergens such as dairy and corn, eliminate refined carbs and add probiotics. Any parent should prefer this less invasive procedure–but doctors have to let the parents know that this is an option and is highly effective!!!
