Otitis media with effusion is common middle ear mucosa disease that can cause hearing loss in children. Adenoid hypertrophy can cause recurrent acute otitis media in addition to otitis media with effusion as a result of eustachian tube dysfunction and primary infection focus. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of adenoid hypertrophy on the hearing threshold in children suffering from otitis media with effusion.

Otitis media with effusion (OME) is the most common cause of hearing loss in children. Early diagnosis is important as hearing loss affects speech and language development in children. The aim of this...
To evaluate peripheral blood immunological parameters and the possible correlation with age, gender and adenoid size in children with adenoid hypertrophy with OME.
Streptococcus pneumonia, one of the major colonizers in nasopharyngeal adenoids, has been the predominant pathogen causing acute otitis media (AOM) in children. Recent evidence suggests an association...
The adenoid pad, which is located between the orifice of the Eustachian tube (ET) and posterior nasal cavity, can affect the development of otitis media with effusion (OME) because of its anatomical l...
Children with adenoid hypertrophy (AH) have impaired respiratory system defense mechanisms, such as mucociliary clearance. We hypothesized that AH negatively affects one of the most important aspects ...
Clinical research question: Can OM-85 reduce the recurrence of respiratory tract infections (RTIs) in children with AH by stimulating the immunological response of the host and therefore, ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether 8 weeks treatment with mometasone furoate nasal spray, twice daily, is safe and effective in treating adenoid hypertrophy in children.
Chronic nasal obstruction due to adenoid hypertrophy is among the most common health problems affecting children, and adenoidectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures performed ...
This study is designed to check the effect of the use of the ear popper device on serous otitis media in children and on the conductive hearing loss accompanying the otitis. It is intended...
Examination of the corolation between adenoid hypertrophy and body temperature in candidate children for adenoidectomy after exercise
The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
Inflammation of the ear, which may be marked by pain (EARACHE), fever, HEARING DISORDERS, and VERTIGO. Inflammation of the external ear is OTITIS EXTERNA; of the middle ear, OTITIS MEDIA; of the inner ear, LABYRINTHITIS.
Transmission of sound waves through vibration of bones in the SKULL to the inner ear (COCHLEA). By using bone conduction stimulation and by bypassing any OUTER EAR or MIDDLE EAR abnormalities, hearing thresholds of the cochlea can be determined. Bone conduction hearing differs from normal hearing which is based on air conduction stimulation via the EAR CANAL and the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
BACTERIAL INFECTIONS of the nervous system caused by HAEMOPHILUS organisms, and marked by prominent inflammation of the meninges. HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE TYPE B is the most common causative organism. The condition primarily affects children under 6 years of age but may occur in adults. Clinical manifestations include fever; nuchal rigidity; PHOTOPHOBIA; SEIZURES; HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL; COMA; and cerebrovascular thrombosis. The organism tends to enter the central nervous system following infections of adjacent structures, including the middle ear (see also OTITIS MEDIA), sinuses, and pharynx.

Wearable sound-amplifying devices that are intended to compensate for impaired hearing. These generic devices include air-conduction hearing aids and bone-conduction hearing aids. (UMDNS, 1999)
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
