Mixed hearing loss is a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss at the same. It occurs when sound is not being transferred from the outer to the inner ear (cochlea) efficiently and there is also damage to the inner ear.If a child has many middle ear infections, fluid may be in the middle ear most of the time. It can get very thick and sticky â€“ this is called ‘glue ear’.
This must be removed by a procedure called Myringotomy and insertion of grommet.
A myringotomy is a small cut in the ear drum to drain fluid in the middle ear. Grommets are tiny tubes which are put into the hole created by myringotomy to keep it open and provide prolonged ventilation. These operations are usually done to relieve hearing loss due to middle ear fluid or recurrent ear infections but not nerve deafness.
