Cleft palate and glue ear.

Abstract

The invariable presence of otitis media with effusion in children with cleft palate aged from 2 to 20 months is confirmed in a prospective trial, and the diagnosis was made in each case by myringotomy. Treatment planning should take account of this, and long term ventilation of at least one ear seems to be mandatory in order to correct bilateral congenital deafness. Close cooperation between otologist and plastic surgeon is essential for diagnosis and treatment of otitis media in these patients.
