Bacterial Assessment of Middle Ear Fluid in Children Undergoing Ventilation Tube Placement Surgery
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
Children with chronic otitis media have more resistant bacteria that require surgical intervention to eradicate the infections. The study will evaluate the dominant bacteria and their sensitivities to antibiotics. The information will assist in better treatment plans for children with chronic infections.
The data will also assess the changing patterns in the bacteria colonizing middle ear fluid.
