The purpose of this investigation was to describe, in a longitudinal prospective study, the acoustic-immittance profile during sessions with effusion and during sessions without effusion in children with recurrent middle-ear effusion (MEE). The static-acoustic middle-ear admittance, tympanometric width (TW), tympanometric peak pressure (TPP), and ipsilateral acoustic reflex (IAR) were evaluated in 36 ears of 18 children with recurrent MEE and 24 ears of 12 children without a history of MEE… CONTINUE READING
