Grommet Insertion







Grommets are small tubes which can be introduced into the middle ear cavity through an incision in the tympanic membrane.  It serves two purposes:
1. It ventilates the middle ear cavity
2. It drains the middle ear cavity if secretions are present.
In children this procedure is commonly combined with adenotonsillectomy.  It can be performed under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia.  General anaesthesia is preferred in children.
