A Study of the Clinicopathologic Behaviour of the Different Types of Unsafe Chronic Otitis Media
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||chronic otitis media, cholesteatoma|
|Treatment||biopsy, audiometry, et function test, ear swab culture, dne|
|Sponsor||Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences|
|Start date||July 2003|
|End date||December 2005|
|Trial size||192 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00270660, M06a/2003-04|
The purpose of the study is to study the clinicopathologic behaviour of the 3 dangerous types of chronic otitis media that are prone for complications. In which type are the complications more common? Which type gives rise to more hearing loss? How does the disease process in the 3 types evolve? should the 3 types of otitis media be managed differently?
Male or female participants at least 8 years old.
