Serous Otitis Media Post Myringotomy
||This is the same patient ten minutes later.
A small vertical myringotomy incision has been made through the tympanic membrane in the six o'clock position, and the golden yellow fluid within the middle ear has been aspirated.
A few strands of fluid can be seen behind the tympanic membrane.
Note the reflex vasodilatation of the malleolar vessels.
