If there is still fluid behind your child’s eardrums after a course of antibiotics, or if your child has repeated ear infections, your paediatrician may recommend ear ventilation tubes (vent tubes).
If the ear infections are related to swollen or infected adenoids, a power-assisted adenoidectomy may be recommended to remove the adenoids.
Whether a power-assisted adenoidectomy is right for your child depends on several factors that you should discuss with your child’s paediatrician and an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) or ear specialist.
