As known, for practical otorhinolaryngology, inflammatory diseases of the middle ear are of particular relevance, as the most common and reflecting the social aspect. Chronic diseases of the middle ear (ChOM), such as chronic purulent otitis media, exudative otitis media, adhesive otitis media, including retraction pockets, make up a significant part in the structure of ENT diseases. As a rule, chronic otitis media is a consequence of untreated acute otitis media in a timely manner. The duration and chronization of the ChOM process causes complications and is manifested by persistent hearing loss. The incidence of ChOM in children according to the authors is 37 -42% of the entire ear pathology.
