Implanting an ear grommet


Rights Managed


Implanting an ear grommet. Surgeon inserting a grommet (tympanostomy tube) into a child's eardrum (inside the ear). This device keeps the middle ear aerated and mucus-free and is mainly used to treat otitis media (glue ear), a common childhood inflammation of the middle ear. Grommets usually remain in the eardrum for a period of time, ranging from several months to several years, before spontaneously falling out of the eardrum. To view the grommet prior to insertion, see image M572/047.
