To help keep a child’s middle ear free of fluid build-up and infection, a doctor may need to insert ventilation tubes in the ears or remove the adenoids (adenoidectomy). Which method is used depends on a child’s condition and what’s causing the ear infections.
An ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist may recommend vent tubes for a child if they have had an ear infection and there’s still fluid in the ear after initial treatment, or if a child has had several ear infections during a year.
If a child’s adenoids are enlarged and causing ear infections, an ENT specialist may suggest removing the adenoids with an adenoidectomy procedure.
