Global Tympanostomy Tubes Market: Overview
Tympanostomy tube is a small tube inserted into the eardrum to keep the middle ear aerated for prolonged period of time and to prevent accumulation of fluid in the middle ear. It is also known as a grommet or myringotomy tube. It is the most common surgical procedure performed in children in the U.S. The operation is carried out under local or general anesthesia. The Tympanostomy tube is generally allowed to remain in the eardrum for six months to two years. The T-shaped Tympanostomy tubes can be kept inserted for up to four years. The painful ear infection is experienced by every child by the age of 5. Viral infections resolve by their own; however, bacterial infections need to be treated with antibiotics. If untreated, ear infection can lead to chronic issues such as hearing loss, poor school performance, and behavioral problems. In such cases, insertion of Tympanostomy tubes is considered.
