Otitis media - chronic suppurative Otitis media - chronic suppurative - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Otitis media - chronic suppurative - Summary Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is defined as 'a chronic inflammation of the middle ear and mastoid cavity, which presents with recurrent ear discharges (otorrhoea) through a tympanic perforation’. CSOM is assumed to be a complication of acute otitis media (AOM). The World Health Organization definition states that AOM (...) spontaneously, but may persist, leading to permanent hearing loss and (in children) problems with language development. Symptoms that support a diagnosis of CSOM are: Ear discharge (for more than 2 weeks) without pain and fever. A history of AOM (ear pain, fever, and irritability), a history of ear trauma, or a previous glue ear and grommet insertion. A painless ear examination (unlike AOM or acute otitis externa), with evidence of tympanic membrane perforation. Possible hearing loss. Assessment should

Bottom line Evidence on whether zinc supplementation can (...) reduce the incidence of otitis media in healthy children under the age of five years living in low and middle-income countries is mixed. Three of the 5 trials assessing this outcome demonstrated no significant effect, with point estimates close to no effect; another trial suggested a possible benefit of zinc, but the findings were difficult to interpret, and another trial appeared to demonstrate a significant benefit. The trial demonstrating a benefit of zinc included only children aged 60 days to 12

No evidence adenoidectomy benefits acute otitis media but it can benefit glue ear PEARLS Practical Evidence About Real Life Situations PEARLS are succinct summaries of Cochrane Systematic Reviews for primary care practitioners. They No evidence adenoidectomy benefits acute otitis media but it can benefit glue ear Clinical question How effective is adenoidectomy for acute otitis media (AOM) and chronic otitis media with effusion ("glue ear") in children? Bottom line Compared with non-surgical (...) management or tympanostomy tubes only, adenoidectomy with or without tympanostomy tubes confers no benefit in children with AOM in terms of recurrence and duration of AOM. Adenoidectomy in combination with a unilateral tympanostomy tube has a beneficial effect on the resolution of glue ear for the non-operated ear at 6 months and 12 months, respectively (n = 3 trials), and a very small (<5dB) effect on hearing, compared to a unilateral tympanostomy tube only. The trials were too heterogeneous to pool

WITHDRAWN: Decongestants and antihistamines for acute otitis media in children. BACKGROUND: Acute otitis media (AOM) is a common and important source of morbidity in children, although the majority of cases resolve spontaneously. While frequently recommended, decongestant and antihistamine therapy is of unclear benefit. OBJECTIVES: To determine the efficacy of decongestant and antihistamine therapy in children with AOM on outcomes of AOM resolution, symptom resolution, medication side effects

In this randomized, double-blind trial, children 6 to 35 months of age with acute otitis (...) media, diagnosed with the use of strict criteria, received amoxicillin-clavulanate (161 children) or placebo (158 children) for 7 days. The primary outcome was the time to treatment failure from the first dose until the end-of-treatment visit on day 8. The definition of treatment failure was based on the overall condition of the child (including adverse events) and otoscopic signs of acute otitis media. Treatment failure occurred in 18.6% of the children who received amoxicillin-clavulanate
