AbstractThe management of middle ear effusion by myringotomy and insertion of ventilation tubes in 75 adult patients was evaluated. In Group 1 the middle ear effusion was not related to nasopharyngeal carcinoma. The patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma were subdivided into pre and post-radiotherapy groups (Group 2 and Group 3) according to the time of insertion of the ventilation tubes. Myringotomy and insertion of ventilation tubes achieved significant hearing gain in all three groups. The pre and post-radiotherapy groups had a higher post-operative infection rate than Group 1 (P > 0.01). The duration of a persistent tympanic membrane defect in the post-radiotherapy group was significantly longer than Group 1 (P = 0.03). The post-radiotherapy group had more perforations than Group 1 (P = 0.02). A total of 28% of ears in the post-radiotherapy group were discharging at the last visit. In view of the higher complication rate in the post-radiotherapy group, the role of myringotomy and insertion of ventilation tube is reassessed.
