Draining of fluid from the ear

Summary

Draining of fluid from the ear

Draining of fluid from the ear is the treatment performed on severe or prolonged cases of glue ear. This treatment is recommended when there is significant hearing loss as well as other symptoms of the condition. Draining fluids from the ear requires the help of a specialist ENT surgeon. Suction may be used to effectively drain fluid and is repeated periodically as glue ear symptoms gradually reduce over a period of up to a year.
