耳鼻咽喉科処置 : 鼓室処置の有効性とその評価 Evaluation of the Topical Treatment for Otitis Media
We evaluated the effectiveness of topical treatment including aspiration of otorrhoea, cleaning with cotton appli-cators and saline irrigation of external and midle ear in acute otitis media and chronic otitis media. The cases were divided into group A (with topical treatment) and group B (without topical treatment) in a random manner. In both groups the patients received otic drops for 4 days at the clinic or at home. The clinical course was significantly better in group A than group B.
