Double Grommet Insertion

Harpreet Singh Kochar

A 60 year old lady presented with left ear blockage and decreased hearing. She was having OME and was started on management of the same with conservative approach. There were no nasal symptoms. After two weeks, there was no improvement, but infact worsening of retraction so a recommendation for grommet insertion was made. She was lost to follow up.
She presented again three months later with almo
st atelectatic ear drum with a small air pocket anteriorly and fluid in area of OWN and RWN. An antrioinfrerior quadrant grommet insertion was done. However, the fluid in the posterior mesotympanum did not drain out as there were adhesions between the TM and the promontory that prevented drainage of posterior mesotympanum. I did a double grommet insertion taking care that the incision and the grommet did not disturb the ossicles. The fluid could drain immediately and through the myringotomy the adhesion between the TM and the promontory were broken using a right angle pick. A grommet insertion was done. The TM seemed stable after two months.
Please share how you would manage this. (I am expecting brickbats but please don’t strip me of my degree)

Abstract
Objectives:  To assess whether the use of ice-lollies after tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy in children aged 2-12 reduces pain in the immediate post-operative period. Design: A prospective, randomised, single-blinded study design consisting of two groups with an intention to treat analysis. Setting:  Tertiary referral centre. Participants:  Children aged 2-12 undergoing tonsillectomy with or without adenoidectomy. Main outcome Measures:  Pain assessment by nursing staff in the form of the validated modified Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Pain Scale at 15, 30 and 60 minutes and 4 hours. Results:  Ninety-two patients were recruited into the study with 46 allocated to receive an ice-lolly and 41 not to receive an ice-lolly after exclusion of those with incomplete data. The 2 groups were comparable for number, age, sex and diagnosis. The pain score at every time interval was lower in the group that had received the ice-lolly compared with the group that had not. This was statistically significant at 30 (p= 0.008) and 60 minutes (p= 0.049) . Conclusion:  Our data suggests that ice-lollies are a cheap, effective and safe method of reducing post-operative pain up to one hour following paediatric tonsillectomy.

      November 4 at 9:55am · · 1
    • Suri Prabhu according to a colleague in Cochin - this is a good thing (monetarily) for the doctor - because the ear (and the attached patient) will have to visit the Ear specialist at least 5 or 6 times a year for the rest of his life - and each visit will be a standard protocol of -
      1. chemical cautery with phenol, or AgN03, TCA, or something like that-
      2. prescription of 2%acetic acid drops for 2 weeks
      3. when the patient asks - Doctor, why am i having this severe itching and fungus infection ? It was not so bad before the operation?" - the answer given by doctor is " Ear Drum is 100% intact - some red spots on the drum are causing the problem, but please do not use ear-buds"

      after about two years - the ear (and the attached person) get sick of the whole thing - and decide to visit that other "good" ENT doctor -
      and the original ENT doctor is happy and unhappy-

      happy because that damn ear is not interfering with his concept of 100% success in tympanoplasty-
      and probably unhappy because of the loss of a steady source of income-

    • Vinod Felix Prabhu sir, is surgery necessary in all cases?..i have come across post op pts with myringitis which responded well with a short course antibiotic steroid drops && acetic acid drops...in my opinion surgery is necessary for only those pts who have a chronic problem..
      November 4 at 10:37am ·
    • Suri Prabhu ‎^^yes -for the chronic post-operative ear - the problem in such post-operative ears is that the ear does well for two or three months and then the problem flares up again -
      the way i tend to look at this is-
      if the patient has to visit the ear specialist more than 6 times in the post-operative year - then the problem is chronic and will need revision-
      November 4 at 10:51am ·
    • Neelam Vaid how does one try and prevent the same when doing revision
      November 4 at 11:38am · · 1
    • Suri Prabhu ‎^^ Neelam Vaid -to cut a long story short - the entire drumhead (afflicted with myringitis) - has to go -
      and,before the new graft is placed, the surgeon has to make sure that all mucous membrane is medial to the graft- and that the lateral flap (which will be placed on the new graft) is free of mucous membrane-
      and yes, postoperative myringitis is (most likely) caused by allowing mucous membrane to reside lateral to the (underlaid) fascial graft -
      November 4 at 2:49pm · · 3
    • Prahlada Nayaka Basavanthappa Suri Prabhu: I presented this at Cholesteatoma and Mastoid surgery international congress at Hague, Netherlands in 2004. I told them entire TM should be excised and grafted. Initially people laughed at me. But I got support from unexpected corner. Prof. Mirko Tos, who is around here on facebook, got up and said, What I said is making sense. The mucosalisation of the lateral surface of the TM is troublesome. The mucin is highly irritant to the EAC skin.

    • Ajit Man Singh GV paint. apply GV paint on the graft 2-3 tmes a week for 2 weeks. This was tought to me by My Prof. and it works

    • Harpreet Singh Kochar It continued till our times too at institute and showed benefit. I practice this and chemical cautery. But am not facing this problem with graft now. The only thing is that GVP is sometimes messy as it tends to stain the skins and clothes and on occasion crusts form under which disease persists for which a saline irrigation and cleaning may need to be done weekly.

      November 4 at 8:54pm · · 1
    • Suri Prabhu ‎^^ oh yes - Neelam Vaid - as long as any (potentially viable) mucous membrane is not allowed to remain lateral to the graft - and all of it (viable mucous membrane) remains medial to the graft -

    • Prahlada Nayaka Basavanthappa The issue here is not myringitis actually. It is the mucosalization of the lateral surface of the tympanic membrane, which does not responds to various paints and burns easily.
