To the Editor:—
Nit-picking aside, something is wrong with the current management of otitis media in children, contrary to Dr. Heller's comments (197:591, 1966) Why are we seeing so many "cured" cases, with fixed drums and deafness? Why so much chronic otorrhea with permanent perforations in drums that never saw a myringotome? Are we too satisfied with half-way technique and therapy? I make these statements in defense of the patient.
