When and why is it necessary to perform a Video Otoscopy?

When is it necessary to perform video-otoscopy?

The video-otoscopic examination improves and optimizes visualization of the ear canal, tympanic membrane, and tympanic bulla compared with the classic otoscopic examination. This technique is recommended in cases of:

  • recurrent/chronic otitis that has not been resolved by usual therapies and which likewise would end up being destined for surgical therapy.
  • When the presence of foreign bodies or neoformations is suspected.

It allows for deeper and more thorough cleaning of the duct and tympanic bulla, collection of exudate samples for bacterial culture, and possible biopsy sampling.
