Middle ear fluid cytokine and inflammatory cell kinetics in the chinchilla otitis media model. (1/256)

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most frequent microbe causing middle ear infection. The pathophysiology of pneumococcal otitis media has been characterized by measurement of local inflammatory mediators such as inflammatory cells, lysozyme, oxidative metabolic products, and inflammatory cytokines. The role of cytokines in bacterial infection has been elucidated with animal models, and interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, and IL-8 and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) are recognized as being important local mediators in acute inflammation. We characterized middle ear inflammatory responses in the chinchilla otitis media model after injecting a very small number of viable pneumococci into the middle ear, similar to the natural course of infection. Middle ear fluid (MEF) concentrations of IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-alpha were measured by using anti-human cytokine enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay reagents. IL-1beta showed the earliest peak, at 6 h after inoculation, whereas IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-alpha concentrations were increasing 72 h after pneumococcal inoculation. IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-alpha but not IL-1beta concentrations correlated significantly with total inflammatory cell numbers in MEF, and all four cytokines correlated significantly with MEF neutrophil concentration. Several intercytokine correlations were significant. Cytokines, therefore, participate in the early middle ear inflammatory response to S. pneumoniae.  (+info)

Pneumococcus activation of the 5-lipoxygenase pathway and production of glycoproteins in the middle ear of rats. (2/256)

Pneumococcal otitis media is associated with the production of potent inflammatory mediators (leukotrienes), but the mechanism by which pneumococcus induces production of leukotrienes in the middle ear is poorly understood. In this study, up-regulation of 2 genes that govern the lipoxygenase pathway, cPLA2 and 5-LOX, was observed in rats following inoculation of pneumococcus into the middle ear cavity. Expression of cPLA2 was low, and 5-LOX gene expression was not detected in control animals. Up-regulation of cPLA2 and 5-LOX in middle ear epithelial cells was accompanied by an increase of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins in middle ear fluid and cells. These findings suggest that pneumococcus activates the lipoxygenase pathway by up-regulating expression of the cPLA2 and 5-LOX genes. This, in turn, may stimulate synthesis and secretion of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins that facilitate production of fluid in the middle ear cleft.  (+info)

Interpretation of middle ear fluid concentrations of antibiotics: comparison between ceftibuten, cefixime and azithromycin. (3/256)

AIMS: The aim of this study was to determine the potential influence of variables such as the cell content in the fluid, and serum levels, on the concentrations of ceftibuten, cefixime and azithromycin in the middle ear fluid of patients suffering from acute otitis media. METHODS: This randomized, open study compared the penetration of ceftibuten (9 mg kg(-1) 18 patients), cefixime (8 mg kg(-1), 16 patients) and azithromycin (10 mg kg(-1) 16 patients) into the intracellular and extracellular compartments of middle ear fluid of 50 paediatric patients (aged 8-14 years) with acute otitis media. Middle ear fluid was extracted by tympanocentesis 4, 12 and 24 h after dosing and divided into two fractions: with cells (as collected) (C+) and cell-free (C-). Antibiotics were assayed in C+ and C- samples by h.p.l.c. RESULTS: Ceftibuten achieved greater penetration into middle ear fluid than cefixime and azithromycin. Higher concentrations of ceftibuten (CTB) and cefixime (CFX) were found in the C- fraction (CTB: 4h 13.3+/-1.86; 12h 4.7+/-1.18; 24h 0.5+/-0.2. CFX: 4h 3.2+/-1.4; 12h 1.5+/-0.5; 24h>(0.1 mgl(-1)) than in the C+ fraction (CTB:4 h 8.4+/-4.3; 12 h 2.88+/-1.19; 24 h 0.3+/-0.27. CFX: 4 h 1.2+/-0.6; 12 h 0.8+/-0.2; 24 h>0.1 mg l(-1)) at the each time point, while the opposite was true for azithromycin (C-: 4 h 0.11+/-0.04; 12 h 0.12+/-0.08; 24 h 0.23+/-0.12. C+: 4 h 0.38+/-0.24; 12 h 0.9+/-0.03; 24 h 1.05+/-0.3 mg l(-1)). CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that the penetration of antibiotics into the middle ear fluid is influenced by its serum concentrations as well as by the cell content in the fluid. Ceftibuten achieved higher middle ear fluid concentrations than cefixime in C+ and C- fractions at all time points. Both ceftibuten and cefixime concentrations are negatively influenced by the cell content in the fluid. In contrast the concentration of azithromycin to the middle ear fluid is positively influenced by the cell content in the fluid.  (+info)

Protection against development of otitis media induced by nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae by both active and passive immunization in a chinchilla model of virus-bacterium superinfection. (4/256)

Three separate studies, two involving active-immunization regimens and one involving a passive-transfer protocol, were conducted to initially screen and ultimately more fully assess several nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae outer membrane proteins or their derivatives for their relative protective efficacy in chinchilla models of otitis media. Initial screening of these antigens (P5-fimbrin, lipoprotein D, and P6), delivered singly or in combination with either Freund's adjuvant or alum, indicated that augmented bacterial clearance from the nasopharynx, the middle ears, or both anatomical sites could be induced by parenteral immunization with P5-fimbrin combined with lipoprotein D, lipoprotein D alone, or the synthetic chimeric peptide LB1 (derived from P5-fimbrin), respectively. Data from a second study, wherein chinchillas were immunized with LB1 or lipoprotein D, each delivered with alum, again indicated that clearance of nontypeable H. influenzae could be augmented by immunization with either of these immunogens; however, when this adjuvant was used, both antibody titers in serum and efficacy were reduced. A third study was performed to investigate passive delivery of antisera directed against either LB1, lipoprotein D, nonacylated lipoprotein D, or a unique recombinant peptide designated LPD-LB1(f)2,1,3. The last three antiserum pools were generated by using the combined adjuvant of alum plus monophosphoryl lipid A. Passive transfer of sera specific for LB1 or LPD-LB1(f)2,1,3 to adenovirus-compromised chinchillas, prior to intranasal challenge with nontypeable H. influenzae, significantly reduced the severity of signs and incidence of otitis media which developed (P +info)

Complement activation and expression of membrane regulators in the middle ear mucosa in otitis media with effusion. (5/256)

The aetiopathogenesis of chronic otitis media with effusion (OME) in children is not yet fully understood. OME is characterized by metaplasia of the epithelium and accumulation of sticky, glue-like effusion in the middle ear containing different mediators of inflammation, including activation fragments of the complement system. Here we examined whether the fluid phase complement activation is reflected in the middle ear mucosa and how the mucosa is protected against the cytolytic activity of complement. Mucosal biopsies from 18 middle ears of children with a history of chronic OME were taken. The biopsies were analysed by immunofluorescence microscopy after staining for complement fragments iC3b/C3c, C3d and C9, and regulators membrane cofactor protein (MCP; CD46), decay-accelerating factor (DAF; CD55) and protectin (CD59). There was a strong staining for iC3b/C3c, and a weaker one for C3d and C9 on the surface of the middle ear epithelial cells of OME patients but not in controls without OME. MCP was expressed on the hyperplastic three to four outer cell layers of the epithelium, while CD59 was expressed throughout the middle ear mucosa. The results suggest a strong ongoing complement activation and consequent inflammation in the middle ear cavity. Unrestricted complement damage of the epithelial lining is prevented by the strong expression of MCP and CD59.  (+info)

Accumulation of factors influencing children's middle ear disease: risk factor modelling on a large population cohort. (6/256)

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Data were analysed from a large national birth cohort to examine cumulative and interactive prediction from various risk factors for childhood middle ear disease, and to resolve conflicting evidence arising from small and incompletely controlled studies. The large sample size permitted appropriate covariate adjustment to give generality, and permit demographic breakdown of the risk factors. SETTING: A large multi-purpose longitudinal birth cohort study of all births in the UK in one week in 1970, with multiple questionnaire sweeps. PARTICIPANTS: Over 13,000 children were entered into the original cohort. Data on over 12,000 children were available at the five year follow up. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: For children at 5 years, parent reported data were available on health and social factors including data on two markers for middle ear disease: the occurrence of purulent (nonwax) ear discharge and suspected or confirmed hearing difficulty. MAIN RESULTS: In those children who had ever had reported hearing difficulty (suspected or confirmed), after control for socioeconomic status, three of the classic factors (male sex, mother's smoking habits since birth, and attending day care) were significantly more frequent. In those who had ever had ear discharge reported, only mother's smoking habit since birth was significantly more frequent. However, it showed an orderly dose response relation. In addition, a derived general child health score was found to be significantly associated with both the middle ear disease markers. Control for this variable in the analysis of those having reported hearing difficulty reduced the effect size of mother's smoking habit, but it remained statistically significant. For reported ear discharge, even after control for the general health score and social index, mother's smoking habits and day care attendance were both significant predictors. Mother's (but not father's) smoking habits and day care attendance were found to be significant risk factors for middle ear disease. Breast feeding effects were weak and did not generally survive statistical control. CONCLUSIONS: A child having all three risk factors (attends day care, a mother who smokes, and male sex) is 3.4 times more likely to have problems with hearing than a child who has none, based on cumulative risk. Further studies should focus on preventative risk modification and well specified intervention.  (+info)

Antimicrobial treatment of an experimental otitis media caused by a beta-lactamase positive isolate of Haemophilus influenzae. (7/256)

A gerbil model of otitis media induced by a beta-lactamase producing and non-serotypeable isolate of Haemophilus influenzae was used to assess the in-vivo efficacy of co-amoxiclav and cefuroxime at low (5 mg/kg) and high (20 mg/kg) doses. The MIC of the antibiotics tested against the pathogen was 1 mg/L (1/0.5 mg/L for co-amoxiclav). The organism was inoculated (+/-10(6) cfu) by transbullar challenge directly in the middle ear and antibiotic treatment was commenced 2 h post-inoculation and continued at 8 h intervals for three doses. Only high dose co-amoxiclav significantly reduced the number of culture-positive specimens as compared with untreated animals or with other treatment groups (91.7% as compared with 36.7% for high dose cefuroxime). The results obtained in any treatment group were related to middle ear antibiotic level/MIC. Antibiotic concentrations in the middle ear 90 min after administration were about 10% of serum levels at 15 min, probably related to a slight inflammatory response. Only after high dose co-amoxiclav did the concentration in the middle ear exceed the MIC by a factor of four. In otitis media with effusion, if indicated, antibiotics active in vitro should be administered in high doses and, to avoid side effects, probably in short courses.  (+info)

Middle ear effusion: rate and risk factors in Australian children attending day care. (8/256)

There have been no previous longitudinal studies of otitis media conducted in non-Aboriginal Australian children. This paper describes the rate and risk factors for middle ear effusion (MEE) in children attending day care in Darwin, Australia. A prospective cohort study of 252 children under 4 years was conducted in 9 day care centres over 12 fortnights between 24 March and 15 September 1997. Tympanometry was conducted fortnightly and multivariate analysis used to determine risk factors predicting MEE. The outcome of interest was the rate of type B tympanograms per child detected in either ear at fortnightly examinations. After adjusting for clustering by child, MEE was detected on average 4.4 times in 12 fortnights (37% of all examinations conducted). Risk factors associated with presence of effusion were younger age, a family history of ear infection, previous grommets (tympanostomy tubes), ethnicity and the day care centre attended. A history of wheeze appeared protective. These effects were modest (RR 0.57-1.70). Middle ear effusion is very common in children attending day care in Darwin. This has clinical importance, since MEE during early childhood may affect optimal hearing, learning and speech development. There is little scope for modification for many of the risk factors for MEE predicted by this model. Further study of the day care environment is warranted.  (+info)

Middle ear effusion was obtained from children with chronic secretory otitis media undergoing myringotomy. The effusions contained about 120 mg/ml non-dialysable solids, of which 18-31% was mucus glycoprotein. The purified mucus glycoprotein had a composition characteristic of other mucus glycoproteins. Amino acid analysis of the glycoprotein indicates a protein core consisting of glycosylated regions resistant to proteolysis and non-glycosylated regions susceptible to proteolysis. Analysis of the mucus glycoprotein by gel filtration on Sepharose 2B showed that reduction caused a decrease in hydrodynamic size and proteolysis caused a further decrease. The difference was confirmed by sedimentation coefficient and viscosity measurements. The reduced glycoprotein had an intrinsic viscosity of 0.113 ml/mg and an S0(20) of 15.2S compared to a value of 0.018 ml/mg and 9.6S for the proteolytically digested glycoprotein. These results suggest a model for this middle ear mucus glycoprotein, in which the native

There are increasing public health concerns about the effects of passive tobacco smoke exposure. Clinical research is providing evidence that children who inhale secondhand smoke may have a higher incidence of health problems such as upper respiratory infections, otitis media, tonsillitis, aggravation of chronic respiratory conditions, and sudden infant death syndrome.1. The meta-analysis by Strachan and Cook clearly confirms the effect of environmental tobacco exposure on young childrens risk of developing middle ear problems. This is consistent with a previous meta-analysis which concluded that use of tobacco products by adults increased childhood mortality and morbidity.2. The authors chose to include only published studies in their review. This exclusion could affect the conclusions of the review because of the potential for publication bias (ie, studies that are published are more likely to report statistically significant findings than are studies that are not accepted or submitted for ...
What is glue ear?. Glue ear is a condition where there is a build up of fluid in the middle ear. Other names for it include serous or secretory otitis media (SOM), otitis media with effusion (OME), catarrhal or non-suppurative otitis media.. How common is it?. It is the commonest cause of hearing loss in childhood, with up to 50% of all children having an episode at some stage. The prevalence, that is the number of affected individuals at a particular point in time, depends on age but in children aged 2 to 7 years of age is about 20%.. What is the middle ear?. The ear consists of three parts. The outer ear includes the pinna ( the floppy part attached to the side of the head) and the outer ear canal. The middle ear is the space between the eardrum and the inner ear. It contains the three little bones of hearing, the ossicles. Sound energy comes down the ear canal and vibrates the eardrum which then vibrates the bones of hearing, and in this manner the sound energy is transmitted to the inner ...

This requires a response. No, I for one will not call Jeff a racist at all. However, just by your name I have always assumed you had those inclinations.. I sure am glad you admitted what you are, and I could not have said it better myself. -A hack, along with uninformed, ignorant and a Colon Hater. Still doing the name calling, That is the definition of a hater. Jeff is none of those. While I disagree with his assessment, I think he has been one of the best QBs after Joe and Steve.. To some of the ignorant and uninformed, I will try to set the record straight. Jeff Garcia said some pretty harsh things about Kaep, I will not elaborate, but it is all in the archives. For that reason, Kaep chose Warner over Jeff. Jeff cannot burn bridges and expect different treatment. Jeff got so desperate, he was begging in a wheedling tone, but it was too late. Many wondered why Kaep chose Warner over Jeff. Kaep explained it as not needing the mobility coaching, he wanted to work on his weaknesses, and Warner ...

Any time we would finish a tour, Jeff] would just go home and detach, King tells Guitar World. He might have lived only 45 minutes away, but unless you were part of his inner circle, it was hard to stay in touch with him. And it took me a few years to understand that. For a while I was just like, Why isnt this guy calling me back? But as I got older, I just realized that that was who Jeff was.. I dont think Jeff and I were ever best friends, continues King. I think we were probably the closest in the band, but never best friends. To put it in a way that everyone could understand, Jeff and I were like business partners. Was he my friend? Of course he was my friend. But we didnt really act like that. The last time I was at Jeffs house was January 2003. We went to his place to watch the Raiders in the playoffs. And it sounds horrible, but it wasnt horrible. That was just how it was.. ...
The late Joe Vialls - Joe hit the nail on the head on several occasions, particularly in his research into the murder of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman.

When Alan confronts Jeff and insists that he throw the case in order to return to his former life, theres this definite sense of coming full circle from the person Jeff was three years ago. Back then, his only goal was to get out of Greendale and return to normal. And he wanted to do so as unscathed as possible (his conversations with Duncan reflect that). But now, Jeff is presented once again with a choice - he can throw the case that his friend is fighting for and go back to the life he wanted after Greendale or… he can choose not to do that. But make sure you realize that Jeff DOES have a choice, and what he chooses during this episode defines him more than any other choice he has made thus far. Shirleys response does too, in fact. She must overhear the conversation between Alan and Jeff (or otherwise Jeff tells her), because she tells him to drop her case -- she doesnt want Jeff running into trouble when he returns to his old firm. And, she says, I want you to have what you want. And ...

On Wednesday night, we had a scare that Ive had a hard time shaking. My husband Jeff came home from work a little under the weather but it was our tennis night with our friend Richard so he was trying to rally. Jeff thought it was just food poisoning though and after purging, he felt a lot better and thought he could play. I didnt think it was wise but he said he insisted that he felt fine, so we proceeded to play.. However, after a few games, Jeff began to feel bad again and had to sit down. He told Richard and me to go ahead and hit without him, but as we walked onto the court, we heard this snoring sound coming from Jeff. At first I thought he was joking, acting like he was bored with us but we immediately realized that he had passed out. His eyes were rolled back and there were other things going on, that I will not share. Needless to say, it was a scary scene! We brought Jeff upright and then I hurriedly called 9-1-1. I realized I do not react well under pressure because I was unable to ...
Once Jeff got in the water, SheriAnne, two of her kids, Jerry, and I went to the hospitality tent for some breakfast. Jeff hoped to complete the swim in 1:40. At about 1:15, we all walked over to the bike area, where we could watch cyclists start their 112 miles, AND see swimmers enter the transition area. It was colder now, a little windy, and threatened to rain. We cheered on the cyclists and chatted happily, waiting to see Jeff running to transition.

Adult Advice Sheet click here). What are ventilation tubes? Ventilation tubes are very small plastic tubes, which sit in a hole in the eardrum. They let air get in and out of the ear. This keeps the ear healthy. Why do we use ventilation tubes? Some people get fluid behind the eardrum. This is sometimes called glue ear. It is very common in young children but it can happen in adults too. This can be due to the Eustachian tube (the passage between the ear and the back of the nose) not working properly and, in children, from enlarged adenoids. Most young children will have glue ear at some time but it doesnt always cause problems. We only need to treat it if it is causing problems with hearing or speech or if it is causing lots of ear infections. How long do ventilation tubes stay in for? Ventilation tubes fall out by themselves as the eardrum grows. They may stay in for six months, or a year, or sometimes even longer. You may not notice when they drop out. Does my child have to have ...
Review question Is there is any evidence to show that keeping ears dry after ventilation tube (grommet) insertion helps to prevent problems such as infections?. Background Ventilation tubes are used to treat hearing loss due to glue ear, or to treat recurrent ear infections. Most surgeons agree that childrens ears should be kept dry for a few weeks after the operation, but not all agree on whether ears need to be kept dry thereafter. Some surgeons will allow children to swim and bathe without ear protection, whereas others will recommend ears be kept dry while tubes are in place.. Study characteristics We included two studies, recruiting a total of 413 patients. One study looked at 201 children between six months and six years who had ventilation tubes inserted to treat glue ear or recurrent infections. Children were divided into two groups: one group was allowed to swim and bathe freely, the other group was instructed to wear ear plugs while swimming or bathing. Another study looked at 212 ...

In order to verify these effects of cyclamen extract in otitis media patients, it has been used in 33 patients with acute secretory otitis and 10 patients with chronic secretory otitis (32 were children aged 5-18 years and 11 were adults aged 20-77 years); in 28 cases, the main cause of the secretory otitis was the presence of an acute viral respiratory infection and in 17 it was rhinosinusitis. In the patients with acute secretory otitis, Nasodren® was administered once a day for 3 days; in the patients with chronic secretory otitis, it was administered for 5 days, starting on the second day after myringotomy. In addition, there was a control group with 30 patients (20 cases of acute otitis and 10 cases of chronic otitis ...
Otitis Media With Effusion - Symptoms of Otitis Media With Effusion - Treatment of Otitis Media With Effusion - Serous Otitis Media - Middle Ear Fluid - OME - Secretory Otitis Media
Abstract Otitis media with effusion (OME) and recurrent acute otitis media (RAOM) are both extremely common, with a significant impact on the childs and parents quality of life. Various treatment options have therefore been investigated to prevent their occurrence. A literature search was carried out on Medline, EMBASE and Cochrane database for relevant randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses. We sought to summarise the current evidence on the management of these common conditions.
A myringotomy with tympanostomy tube insertion is one of the most common surgical procedure for children. A myringotomy is a surgical procedure where a small incision is made in the eardrum (tympanic membrane), typically in both ears. Small plastic tubes (tympanostomy tubes), open at both ends, are then inserted into the incisions.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Efficacy of acoustic reflectometry in detecting middle ear effusion. AU - Avery, Christine A.. AU - Gates, George A.. AU - Prihoda, Thomas J.. PY - 1986/9. Y1 - 1986/9. N2 - The acoustic otoscope measures the amount of sound reflected from the tympanic membrane. Since the amount of reflected sound is increased by fluid in the middle ear, it seemed likely that the acoustic otoscope could be used for detection of otitis media. We compared acoustic reflectometry with over 4,000 tympanometric and otoscopic examinations in 451 children who were examined at regular intervals following surgery for chronic otitis media with effusion. The data indicate a lower sensitivity and specificity of acoustic reflectometry than had been reported previously. The receiver-operator characteristics of this device are discussed.. AB - The acoustic otoscope measures the amount of sound reflected from the tympanic membrane. Since the amount of reflected sound is increased by fluid in the middle ear, it ...
Objectives To identify the mucin gene and its expressing cells in the middle ear mucosa with chronic otitis media (COM), and to study the correlation between infiltration of inflammatory cells in the submucosa and expression of the mucin gene in the mucosal epithelium with COM.. Study Design Middle ear mucosal specimens removed from the inferior promontory area of 19 patients undergoing middle ear surgery for COM were studied.. Methods Sections were stained with H&E, Alcian blue-periodic acid Schiff (AB-PAS), polyclonal MUC5B antibody, and specific MUC5B riboprobe for histological, histochemical, immunohistochemical, and mucin mRNA analyses.. Results H&E staining revealed pseudostratified epithelia in 18 of the middle ear specimens with COM and cuboidal secretory epithelia in one. AB-PAS staining of epithelia revealed abundant secretory cells and their products (glycoconjugates). In situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry studies demonstrated that the secretory cells of the middle ear mucosa ...

Study Design: To evaluate control of COM by steroids with differences in their anti-inflammatory (prednisolone, dexamethasone), and fluid absorption functions (fludrocortisone, aldosterone). A minimum sample size of five animals for each group was required based on power analysis calculations. Sample sizes ranged from 7 to 17 mice per treatment group. Subjects and Methods: Auditory brain stem response (ABR) thresholds were performed at baseline, 2 weeks and 4 weeks. Histopathologic test results were evaluated on all mice ears at the end of the study. Results: Analysis of ...
Bacteria which are metabolically active yet unable to be cultured and eradicated by antibiotic treatment are present in the middle ear effusion of children with chronic otitis media with effusion (COME) and recurrent acute otitis media (rAOM). These observations are suggestive of biofilm presence or intracellular sequestration of bacteria and may play a role in OM pathogenesis. The aim of this project is to provide evidence for the presence of otopathogenic bacteria intracellularly or within biofilm in the middle ear mucosa of children with COME or rAOM. Middle ear mucosal biopsies from 20 children with COME or rAOM were examined for otopathogenic bacteria (either in biofilm or located intracellularly) using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) or species specific fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH) and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). One healthy control biopsy from a child undergoing cochlear implant surgery was also examined. No bacteria were observed in the healthy control sample.
Chronic otitis media is characterized by the presence of intractable tissue pathology such as granulation tissue, fibrosis, cholesterol granuloma, cholesteatoma, ossicular erosin, or new bone formation, with or without associate middle ear effusion. This is the most serious form of otitis media and at present can only be corrected by surgical intervention.. The etiology of chronic otitis media is repeated episodes of the other forms previously described. Although this classification was previously based on the presence of a perforated tympanic membrane, it is currently accepted that chronic otitis media can exist behind an intact and normal appearing tympanic membrane silent otitis media. The following are examples of chronic otitis media showing intractable tissue pathology.. ...
Tympanostomy tube, also known as a grommet or myringotomy tube, is a small tube inserted into the eardrum in order to keep the middle ear aerated for a prolonged period of time, and to prevent the accumulation of fluid in the middle ear. The operation to insert the tube involves a myringotomy and is performed under local or general anesthesia. The tube itself is made in a variety of designs. The most commonly used type is shaped like a grommet. When it is necessary to keep the middle ear ventilated for a very long period, a T-shaped tube may be used, as these T-tubes can stay in place for 2-4 years. Materials used to construct the tube are most often plastics such as silicone or Teflon. Stainless steel tubes exist, but are no longer in frequent use. Guidelines state that tubes are an option in: Recurrent acute otitis media: three ear infections in six months or four infections in a year. The evidence for this recommendation; however, is weak. Chronic otitis media with persistent effusion for ...
Its a pleasure for me to present to friends and colleagues about our work over the recent yeas in the diagnosis and management of acute otitis media. I have to disclose that through the University of Pittsburgh I hold two pending patents in this area. As a framework for this presentation I will use the American Academy of Pediatrics 2013 Diagnosis and Management Guideline. This is a frequently occurring problem, its the most common reason for children to be prescribed an antimicrobial, acute otitis media accounts for 18% of ambulatory visits, 11 million visits every year. There are bout 280,000 tube operations being done yearly in children less than 3 years. There is a direct cost for management of this condition of $2 billion a year. The peak incidence is during the first 2 years of life. 60 to 70% of children experience an episode of acute otitis media before their first birthday. Onset during the first 6 months is associated with the likelihood of recurrent acute otitis media. And recurrent ...
The goals of this two-part series on children with histories of early recurrent otitis media with effusion (OME) were to assess the risk for speech disorder with and without hearing loss and to develop a preliminary descriptive-explanatory model for the findings. Recently available speech analysis programs, lifespan reference data, and statistical techniques were implemented with three cohorts of children with OME and their controls originally assessed in the 1980s: 35 typically developing 3-year-old children followed since infancy in a university-affiliated pediatrics clinic, 50 typically developing children of Native American background followed since infancy in a tribal health clinic, and (in the second paper) 70 children followed prospectively from 2 months of age to 3 years of age and older. Dependent variables included information from a suite of 10 metrics of speech production (Shriberg, Austin, Lewis, McSweeny, & Wilson, 1997a, 1997b) . Constraints on available sociodemographic and ...

Consensus guidelines strongly recommend the treatment of pain associated with acute otitis media. Prescribing only an antibiotic for the treatment of acute otitis media is inappropriate care, as antibiotics are not analgesic medications. The primary systemic analgesics and antipyretics used to treat acute otitis media are ibuprofen and paracetamol. In one randomized trial comparing ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and placebo, only ibuprofen was found to be superior to placebo.. Opioid medications may be used at night during the sleeping hours, although no studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of this medication class for the treatment of acute otitis media.. High-dose amoxicillin, 80 to 90 mg/kg PO per day divided into two daily doses for 5 to 7 days, is the first-line recommended antibiotic for the treatment of uncomplicated acute otitis media.. The higher dose achieves concentrations in the middle ear that exceed the minimum inhibitory concentration for highly resistant forms of S. pneumoniae, ...

This article estimates costs associated with the diagnosis of otitis media, as recorded in claims data. Our algorithm for identifying otitis media relied on recording of diagnoses at the 3-digit ICD-9 level in combination with the presence of an antibiotic fill, a technique that has been has been shown to have 96% agreement with the medical chart.4 Although the estimate so obtained may understate the actual incidence of otitis media, for the purposes of estimating costs, it is appropriate because episodes of otitis media that do not result in visits to a health care provider have no impact on cost. Moreover, our estimate of cumulative otitis media among children 7 to 12 months of age (42%) is similar to the estimate by Duncan et al9 of otitis media among children 1 year of age (47%).. This study assesses expenditures from the point of view of the health care system; that is, no social costs, such as lost work time, or expenditures not normally covered by insurance, such as those for ...
One hundred thirty-two children who attended a research day-care center were studied to determine whether passive tobacco smoke exposure was associated with an increased rate of otitis media with effusion or with an increased number of days with otitis media with effusion during the first 3 years of life. Based on preliminary studies, a serum cotinine concentration of ≥2.5 ng/mL was considered indicative of exposure to tobacco smoke. Otitis media with effusion was diagnosed using pneumatic otoscopy by nurse practitioners and pediatricians who reviewed the childrens health status each weekday. The 87 children with serum cotinine concentrations ≥2.5 ng/mL had a 38% higher rate of new episodes of otitis media with effusion during the first 3 years of life than the 45 children with lower or undetectable serum cotinine concentrations (incidence density ratio = 1.38, 95% confidence interval 1.21 to 1.56). The average duration of an episode of otitis media with effusion was 28 days in the children ...
Myringotomy with the insertion of ear tubes is an optional treatment for inflammation of the middle ear with fluid collection (effusion), also called glue ear, that lasts more than three months (chronic otitis media with effusion) and does not respond to drug treatment. Myringotomy is the recommended treatment if the condition lasts four to six months. Effusion is the collection of fluid that escapes from blood vessels or the lymphatic system. In this case, the effusion collects in the childs middle ear. Initially, acute inflammation of the middle ear with effusion is treated with one or two courses of antibiotic drugs. Antihistamines and decongestants have also been used to treat otitis media, but they have not been proven effective unless the child also has hay fever or some other allergic inflammation that contributes to the ear problem. Myringotomy with or without the insertion of ear tubes is not recommended as the initial treatment for otherwise healthy children with middle ear ...
There is certainly proof to indicate that gentle-tissue manipulative methods utilized in excess of the neck area may possibly assist Restoration from secretory otitis media (inflammation of the center ear) by opening the eustachian tube to aid drainage of fluids from the center ear (Mills 2003). Chiropractors who manipulate a kids neck to correct subluxations might present some symptomatic reduction for otitis media by inadvertently stretching the eustachian tube. But the risk of these treatment would outweigh any feasible benefit. (While otitis media is Ordinarily self-limiting, it should be saved underneath observation by a pediatrician who can prescribe antibiotics, if required, when There is certainly acute otitis media with bacterial infection.

These are also known to be risk factors for the development of AOM itself. Objectives: The aim of this study was to describe risk factors for nasopharyngeal carriage in a cohort of young children at high risk of developing rAOM. Methods: Children with an onset of AOM before 6 months of age, indicating an 80% risk of developing rAOM, were enrolled in a vaccination trial on heptavalent PCV. These children were monitored for 3 years during healthy and AOM periods with nasopharyngeal cultures, physical examinations, and questionnaires. Results: A total of 109 children were included at a mean age of 5 months; 105 were followed for 3 years, 89 (82%) of whom developed rAOM. Risk factors associated with increased carriage of all major AOM pathogens were age <2 years, concurrent ...

I am a BrightSpark Foundation Research Fellow with the UWA School of Paediatrics and Child Health and Honorary Research Fellow with the Telethon Kids Institute. My research interests lie in understanding the interactions between bacteria and the host in chronic and recurrent respiratory infections including ear, nose and throat infections and chronic lung disease. I was awarded my PhD in 2011 from the University of Western Australia under the mentorship of Associate Professor Peter Richmond, Clinical Professor Harvey Coates and Associate Professor Paul Rigby. During my PhD I demonstrated that otopathogenic bacteria exist in both biofilms and intracellularly in the middle ear mucosa of Indigenous and non-Indigenous children with chronic and recurrent otitis media. I also demonstrated that the middle ear effusion contains host DNA which can be used by the bacteria as scaffolding to maintain an infectious reservoir in the middle ear. This DNA scaffolding may provide a treatment target to prevent ...

N2 - Background: Acute otitis media (AOM) is an acute inflammation of the middle ear commonly found in children, for which antibiotics are frequently prescribed. However, antibiotics are beneficial for only one third of AOM cases, and then, with only modest benefit. Since antibiotic use leads to risk of side effects and resistance, effective alternative treatments are required. Corticosteroids are a candidate because of their anti-inflammatory effects, although evidence of their efficacy and harms is insufficient. Accordingly, we plan a large, rigorous clinical trial to test this. Initially, we will test pre-specified methods and procedures (including the ...
Tympanometry provides useful quantitative information about the presence of fluid in the middle ear, mobility of the middle ear system, and ear canal volume. Its use has been recommended in conjunction with more qualitative information (e.g., history, appearance, and mobility of the tympanic membrane) in the evaluation of otitis media with effusion and to a lesser extent in acute otitis media. It also can provide useful information about the patency of tympanostomy tubes. Tympanometry is not reliable in infants younger than seven months because of the highly compliant ear canals of infants. Tympanogram tracings are classified as type A (normal), type B (flat, clearly abnormal), and type C (indicating a significantly negative pressure in the middle ear, possibly indicative of pathology). According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality guidelines on otitis media with effusion, the positive predictive value of an abnormal (flat, type B) tympanogram is between 49 and 99 percent. A type C curve

Eosinophilic otitis media (EOM) is an intractable form of otitis media characterized by the presence of a highly viscous yellow effusion containing eosinophils. EOM shows a very high rate of association with asthma. It is resistant to conventional treatments for otitis media. However, EOM associated with adult-onset asthma has been shown to improve following optimal asthma therapy [16, 17]. EOM predominantly affects women in their fifties.. High-tone hearing loss is more frequently found and more severe in EOM patients, and sudden deafness is also seen sometimes. EOM occurs bilaterally, mostly, although the onset of disease in each ear may differ. EOM is often associated with asthma both in non-atopic and atopic asthmatics. Studies looking at the relation of EOM and asthma severity have shown that asthma severity was statistically greater in patients with EOM than in patients without EOM. EOM is often complicated by eosinophilic rhinosinusitis [18, 19]. Moreover, there was a close relationship ...
The pooled results of meta-analysable studies confirm that treatment with short term ventilation tubes produces limited hearing improvement of only short duration-that is, only as long as the tubes are in situ and patent. Children aged 3 years or younger attending day-care and children aged 4 years or older with a hearing level of 25 dB HL or greater in both ears persisting for at least 12 weeks might benefit more from treatment with such ventilation tubes. Baseline hearing level, however, did not emerge as a clear selection criterion in the way suggested by current guidelines and by prevailing professional belief-that is, average hearing level at baseline did not obviously modify the effect estimate.. Interaction results for baseline hearing level with treatment differed between the trials that randomised children and trials that randomised ears. This difference is probably due to four factors. The first is the control for individual variance achieved by analysing treatment effects within ...
