Background and Objectives Although serious complications of otitis media (OM) such as brain abscess are rare, sequelae of OM such as tympanic membrane perforation and atelectatic tympanic membrane are quite common. Inner ear sequelae can cause hearing loss and speech and language problems. The objectives of this article are to provide a state-of-the-art review on recent articles on complications and sequelae of OM in different anatomic locations, from the tympanic membrane to intracranial sites… Expand
Demographic factors associated with loss to follow up in the management of chronic otitis media: case–control study
Younger patient age, and living in an area of education and training deprivation, are associated with a higher incidence of loss to follow up. Expand
Clinical Practice Guideline
The rationale, purpose, and key action statements of the updated “Clinical Practice Guideline: Otitis Media with Effusion” are summarized to assist in implementing the guideline recommendations. Expand
Prevention of early episodes of otitis media by pneumococcal vaccines might reduce progression to complex disease.
The role of pneumococcus is discussed, results from studies suggest that existing PCVs can prevent early episodes of disease associated with vaccine serotypes, resulting in a reduction of subsequent complex cases caused by non- vaccination serotypes and other otopathogens, which contribute considerably to the disease burden. Expand
Follow-up of childhood hearing disorders: hearing loss, tinnitus and dizziness in adulthood. A population-based cohort study
It is suggested that childhood chronic suppurative otitis media and childhood hearing loss after recurrent acute otitisMedia are associated with increased risk of dizziness in adulthood, which might reflect a permanent effect of inflammatory mediators or toxins on the vestibular system. Expand

The variation in the use of tympanometry in Denmark was surprisingly high, from none or a few per GP per year to a maximum of more than 500 tyMPanometric examinations per GP a year. Expand
Relationship between nasopharyngeal carriage and acute otitis media due to Streptococcus pneumoniae among Finnish children aged less than two years
The natural course of pneumococcal carriage in Finnish children is similar as observed in other industrialised countries, and Nasopharyngeal carriage during AOM can be used as information in monitoring the serotypes causing AOM, and the use of a negative nasopharynx finding could be considered in excluding pneumococal AOM in clinical praxis.

Telehealth for primary health care ear disorders : a study in video-otoscopy

Contemporary Management of Intracranial Complications of Otitis Media
Otogenic intracranial complications can be fatal if not managed appropriately, so a high index of suspicion should be maintained on all patients presenting with symptoms not typically seen with routine otitis media. Expand

OME is an important cause of transient, moderately severe hearing loss during the first months of life-a critical period for development of the auditory system and active treatment should be considered if spontaneous resolution does not occur. Expand
Pediatric otogenic intracranial abscesses
Patients with intracranial abscesses, in selected cases, can be managed with intravenous antibiotics withoutmastoidectomy, and the use of canal wall up mastoidectomy is an acceptable alternative to radical mastoid surgery when surgical intervention is necessary. Expand
Intracranial spread of chronic middle ear suppuration.
The prognosis was worse with delayed presentation because of overwhelming intracranial infection due to multiple pathways of extension from chronic otitis media and infected thrombus in the dural venous sinus should be removed to prevent dissemination of septic emboli. Expand
Incidence of fallopian canal dehiscence at surgery for chronic otitis media
An otologic surgeon should be more careful while performing operation for cholesteatoma in an adult and male patient because of the high incidence of dehiscence observed in these ears, and presence of lateral semicircular canal fistula and erosion of the bony tegmen should also be considered as a clue for the presence of deHiscence before surgery. Expand
Presentation, treatment, and clinical course of otogenic lateral sinus thrombosis
Otogenic lateral sinus thrombosis (OLST) is almost always associated with other complications of chronic otitis media (COM) and did not present a distinct clinical expression and is independent of the use of anticoagulants. Expand
Evaluation of a model for studies on sequelae after acute otitis media in the Mongolian gerbil
Conclusions. The model appears relevant for studies on sequelae after acute otitis media (AOM), and may be the seed of a new, chronic tympanic membrane perforation model in the gerbil. Objectives. ToExpand
Facial paralysis associated with acute otitis media.
The goal of the present investigation was to asses the evolution of facial paralysis caused by acute otitis media, and found that in those patients with electrical bad prognosis, facial nerve decompression turned their evolution into a favorable one. Expand
Acute mastoiditis in children: the "Ferrara" experience.
The incidence of otomastoiditis does not seem to be decreasing, on the contrary, in some countries, it seems to be on the increase; therefore, it is highly recommended that the otologist and the paediatrician collaborate closely. Expand
Suppurative complications of acute otitis media: changes in frequency over time.
Findings suggest an increase in incidence of acute mastoiditis with subperiosteal abscess seen at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia from 2000 to 2007, although further population-based studies are required to definitively evaluate this possibility. Expand
