Summary of "The effect of middle ear effusion on the inner ear condition in children."

Otitis media with effusion (OME) is the most common cause of hearing impairment among children in developed nations. Middle ear (ME) fluid accumulation leads to progressive hearing impairment, usually of the conductive type. In some cases, mixed hearing loss associated with OME has been noted. It was reported that effusion in the ME has a negative impact on the vestibular system of the inner ear.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the middle ear with a clear pale yellow-colored transudate.

Fluid accumulation within the PERICARDIUM. Serous effusions are associated with pericardial diseases. Hemopericardium is associated with trauma. Lipid-containing effusion (chylopericardium) results from leakage of THORACIC DUCT. Severe cases can lead to CARDIAC TAMPONADE.
