This blocked ear wax removal extraction procedure is performed by UK pioneer and world-leading endoscopic ear wax removal specialist Mr Neel Raithatha (Consultant Audiologist) aka ‘The Wax Whisperer’ at his clinic in Oadby, Leicester, UK.
Ear wax removal is necessary when ear wax build up becomes impacted. Symptoms causes by earwax blockage include: earache (otalgia), conductive hearing loss, blocked ear, vertigo, tinnitus, itchiness and irritation, occlusion etc.
The client attended with Otitis Externa and Media of the right ear. He has a long-standing central-inferior perforation following a scuba-diving accident. His current infection occurred whilst swimming on holiday a month ago.
Oto-endosocpic ear examination revealed occluding debris and otorrhea of the right auditory meatus, which was also heavily inflamed. I successfully managed to remove the occlusion using endoscopic ear suction, revealing his abovementioned perforation, which was damp and wet.
I referred to the client to their GP to receive treatment for his infection. He was prescribed amoxicillin on a 7 day course but this did not resolve the infection. He therefore returned to his GP who instead prescribed doxycycline. He has been taking this twice a day for the last 5 days but has developed side-effects such as vertigo and nausea, even leading to vomiting. Unfortunately, his infection is still active and his ear has been discharging.
I again successfully removed the occluding debris and otorrhea from his auditory meatus. There was visible middle-ear effusion present, and therefore I request the client to perform the Val Salva to see if this could be forced out of his middle-ear in order for me to microsuction. Once he had, I was able to suction the middle-ear effusion from his auditory canal. The client has been referred back to his GP and he would now benefit from a referral to ENT.
