Phase N/A

Balloon Dilation of the Eustachian Tube in Children

Introduction Otitis media with effusion (OME, "glue ear") is very common in children and characterized by fluid in the middle ear without signs or symptoms of acute ear infection. Fluid in the middle ear causes conducting hearing loss. OME has a large impact on health care costs and recurrent or ...

Phase N/A

Study of the Hummingbird TTS Tympanostomy Tube System

The study will be a multi-site, prospective, treatment-only post-market study of the H-TTS. The study will be performed in a commercial environment. Patients will already have a scheduled tympanostomy procedure with the H-TTS under moderate sedation and local anesthetic. A minimum of one hundred-sixty-seven (167) subjects will be included in ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Probiotics on Nasopharyngeal Microbiome of Children With Otitis Media With Effusion

The aim of this study is to investigate whether the microbiota in the upper respiratory tract (nasopharynx, adenoids and middle ear fluid) of otitis media with effusion (OME) patients is changed after 4 weeks of probiotic product intake. Therefore, bacterial DNA from swabs, fluid and tissue will be isolated via ...

Phase N/A

Shared Decision Making in Parents of Children With Acute Otitis Media

The Investigators long-term goal is to promote evidence-based, patient-centered evaluation in the acute care setting to more closely tailor antibiotic use to disease risk for Acute Otitis Media (AOM) in children. The Investigator will conduct a single-center cluster randomized control trial comparing the efficacy, safety and patient-centered outcomes of the ...

Phase N/A

Xylitol for the Prevention of Acute Otitis Media Episodes in Children

This is an RCT of regular daily use of xylitol (or "birch sugar"), a natural sweetener that has antimicrobial properties, for the prevention of acute otitis media (AOM, primary outcome) as well as upper respiratory tract infections and dental caries (the two secondary outcomes) in preschool aged children. Clinical equipoise ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence and Associations of Paediatric Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media and Hearing Impairment in Rural Malawi

Type of research study: Cross sectional survey Problem to be studied: Chronic suppurative otitis media and hearing impairment are important causes of morbidity, affecting 4-10% of children throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Many of the causes of disease are preventable with simple interventions. There is significant variation in disease burden and causes ...

Phase N/A

A Comparison of Surgical and a New Non-Surgical Treatment Methods for Secretory Otitis Media in Children

Background SOM or middle ear effusion is the most common cause of hearing impairment in children. Hearing loss occurs due to the accumulation of fluid in the middle ear. In most of the cases, SOM follows acute otitis media (AOM). In cases when the SOM is bilateral and persists for ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Ventilation Tubes - The SIUTIT Trial

The prevalence of otitis media among Greenlandic children is one of the highest in the world and twenty per cent of schoolchildren have impaired hearing in the frequencies for normal speech. Yet, there are no national guidelines to ensure prevention and treatment of recurrent acute otitis media and chronic otitis ...

Phase N/A

The URT and Middle Ear Microbiota in Health and During Chronic OME

This study analyses which bacteria are present in the middle ear space and adjacent upper respiratory tract niches in healthy people and in patients suffering from chronic otitis media with effusion (OME; glue ear). The aim is to identify and isolate bacteria that are more common and more abundant in ...
