Otitis media is an infection of the middle ear and is particularly common in young children. This book is a concise guide to the most recent developments in the management of otitis media.
Beginning with an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the middle ear, the next chapter discusses the Eustachian tube, the small canal that connects the middle ear to the back of the nose and upper throat; and its role in otitis media.
The following sections describe different aspects of otitis media and their management, including tympanoplasty (surgery to reconstruct the eardrum). Separate chapters discuss vaccination to prevent otitis media, local anaesthesia, and hearing aids.
This useful reference is enhanced by more than 100 clinical photographs, diagrams and tables.
