Fluid in the middle ear is called Otitis media with effusion (OME). This occurs when there is thick or sticky fluid behind the eardrum in the middle ear behind the ear drum causing deafness.The fluid in OME is often thin and watery. It used to be thought that the longer the fluid was present, the thicker it became. (“Glue ear” is a common name given to OME with thick fluid.). Surgery called myringotomy is performed which drains fluid involves a small incision in the eardrum, so that the fluid can be gently removed and a tube can be inserted.
There are many types of tubes, but all tubes serve the same function. They keep the eardrum open, allow air to enter the middle ear space, and permit fluid in the middle ear to drain. Most tubes will gradually be rejected by the ear and work their way out of the eardrum. As they come out, the eardrum seals behind the tube. Tubes will last four to six months in the eardrum before they come out.
Unlike Grommet, T tubes can generally remain in the ear for prolonged periods of time. They are not commonly rejected.
