2. Oral steroids for resolution of otitis media with effusion in children (OSTRICH): a double-blinded, placebo-controlled randomised trial.

Oral steroids for resolution of otitis media with effusion in children (OSTRICH): a double-blinded, placebo-controlled randomised trial. BACKGROUND: Children with persistent hearing loss due to otitis media with effusion are commonly managed by surgical intervention. A safe, cheap, and effective medical treatment would enhance treatment options. Underpowered, poor-quality trials have found short-term benefit from oral steroids. We aimed to investigate whether a short course of oral steroids (...) would achieve acceptable hearing in children with persistent otitis media with effusion and hearing loss. METHODS: In this individually randomised, parallel, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial we recruited children aged 2-8 years with symptoms attributable to otitis media with effusion for at least 3 months and with confirmed bilateral hearing loss. Participants were recruited from 20 ear, nose, and throat (ENT), paediatric audiology, and audiovestibular medicine outpatient departments

4. Grommets (ventilation tubes) for recurrent acute otitis media in children.

Grommets (ventilation tubes) for recurrent acute otitis media in children. BACKGROUND: Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common childhood illnesses. While many children experience sporadic AOM episodes, an important group suffer from recurrent AOM (rAOM), defined as three or more episodes in six months, or four or more in one year. In this subset of children AOM poses a true burden through frequent episodes of ear pain, general illness, sleepless nights and time lost from nursery (...) health-related quality of life, presence of middle ear effusion and other adverse events at short-term, intermediate-term and long-term follow-up. We used GRADE to assess the quality of the evidence for each outcome; this is indicated in italics. MAIN RESULTS: Five RCTs (805 children) with unclear or high risk of bias were included. All studies were conducted prior to the introduction of pneumococcal vaccination in the countries' national immunisation programmes. In none of the trials

5. WITHDRAWN: Grommets (ventilation tubes) for recurrent acute otitis media in children.

WITHDRAWN: Grommets (ventilation tubes) for recurrent acute otitis media in children. BACKGROUND: This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in The Cochrane Library in Issue 4, 2008 and previously updated in 2011.Acute suppurative otitis media is one of the most common infectious diseases in childhood. Recurrent acute otitis media is defined for the purposes of this review as either three or more acute infections of the middle ear cleft in a six-month period, or at least four (...) episodes in a year. Strategies for managing the condition include the assessment and modification of risk factors where possible, repeated courses of antibiotics for each new infection, antibiotic prophylaxis and the insertion of ventilation tubes (grommets). OBJECTIVES: To establish whether grommet insertion reduces the frequency of episodes of recurrent acute otitis media and the proportion of symptomatic children. SEARCH METHODS: The Cochrane Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders Group (CENTDG) Trials

7. Systemic corticosteroids for acute otitis media in children.

Systemic corticosteroids for acute otitis media in children. BACKGROUND: Acute otitis media (AOM) is a common acute infection in children. Pain is its most prominent and distressing symptom. Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for AOM, although they have only a modest effect in reducing pain at two to three days. There is insufficient evidence for benefits of other treatment options, including systemic corticosteroids. However, systemic corticosteroids are potent anti-inflammatory drugs, and so

Physical examination will reveal a bulging, opacified tympanic membrane with decreased mobility (...) . The membrane may be white, yellow, pink, or red. Diagnosis is generally made with conventional otoscopy. Additional tests might include pneumatic otoscopy or tympanometry to confirm the presence of an effusion. Treatment includes pain control with analgesics and might include antibiotics. Complications include perforation of the tympanic membrane and, rarely, mastoiditis, seventh cranial nerve palsy, or sigmoid sinus thrombosis.

9. Influenza vaccines for preventing acute otitis media in infants and children.

Influenza vaccines for preventing acute otitis media in infants and children. BACKGROUND: Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common infectious diseases in children. It has been reported that 64% of infants have an episode of AOM by the age of six months and 86% by one year. Although most cases of AOM are due to bacterial infection, it is commonly triggered by a viral infection. In most children AOM is self limiting, but it does carry a risk of complications. Since antibiotic treatment (...) increases the risk of antibiotic resistance, influenza vaccines might be an effective way of reducing this risk by preventing the development of AOM. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of influenza vaccine in reducing the occurrence of acute otitis media in infants and children. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, LILACS, Web of Science, the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, and ClinicalTrials.gov (15

Otitis media with effusion Otitis media with effusion - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Otitis media with effusion: Summary Otitis media with effusion (OME), also known as 'glue ear', is characterized by a collection of fluid within the middle ear space without signs of acute inflammation. OME is the most common cause of hearing impairment in childhood. The hearing loss usually resolves over several weeks or months, but may be more persistent and, if bilateral, may lead (...) to developmental problems. Symptoms of OME vary with time and the age of the child. OME is most common in young children, with the incidence highest in those aged 2 and 5 years. It presents most commonly in the winter months. The exact cause of OME is uncertain, but over 50% of cases are thought to follow an episode of acute otitis media, especially in children under 3 years of age. Persistence of OME may be caused by one or more of the following: Impaired eustachian tube function causing poor aeration
