Children's Health: Grommet Surgery


Glue ear is a middle ear infection that causes temporary hearing loss. It causes the fluid to build up in the middle ear and typically affects young children. Glue ear often develops after a cold and can resolve on its own. However, if the tube that connects the ear to the throat becomes blocked, the fluid will not be able to drain from the ear and will block sound from passing through to the inner ear.
