Grommets are used to treat a childhood condition called glue ear (otitis media with effusion). Grommets are small tubes that drain the fluid accumulated in the middle ear. Treatment is indicated if the child is at risk of developing severe hearing loss. It is carried out under general anaesthesia. A cut is made in the ear drum and grommets are inserted. Complications are perforated ear drum and ear infections.
