This article was originally published in Start Up
More than 2.2 million cases of otitis media with effusion are diagnosed each year worldwide, with as many as 90% of children having at least one episode by age 10. The standard treatment is surgical placement of tiny tympanostomy tubes to ventilate the middle ear space, but AventaMed Ltd. is working to dramatically reduce costs in treating OME and to improve the patient experience with a novel device for tympanostomy tube placement that takes less than one second in an office setting.
