The Grason-Stadler Tymp Star middle ear analyzer (Grason-Stadler; Eden Prairie, Minnesota) and MAICO EasyTymp (MAICO Diagnostic, GmbH; Eden Prairie, Minnesota) used in the study were calibrated annually.
At the present time, mutations in at least 9 genes [POLG, [4] polymerase (DNA directed), gamma; DGUOK, deoxyguanosine kinase; TK2, thymidine kinase, mitochondrial; TYMP, thymidine phosphorylase; MPV17, MpV17 mitochondrial inner membrane protein; SUCLA2, succinate-CoA ligase, ADP-forming, beta subunit; SUCLG1, succinate-CoA ligase, alpha sub unit; RRM2B, ribonucleotide reductase M2 B (TP53 inducible); C10orf2, chromosome 10 open reading frame 2 (also known as TWINKLE)] have been found to cause mtDNA depletion (3-17).

In this study--a follow-up to an earlier study (N Engl J Med 2005; 353:576; discussed in the POEM "Early tymp tubes do not improve outcomes after 3+ years," J Fam Pract 2005; 54:929)--429 children between the ages of 2 months and 3 years with middle-ear effusion for at least 90 days (bilateral) or 135 days (unilateral) were randomized to receive either prompt or delayed tympanostomy tube insertion.
Clinically certified audiologists used the QT1 Quik Tymp Tympanometer (American Electromedics Corp; Amherst, New Hampshire) to determine the integrity of the tympanic membrane and middle ear/ossicular system.
Synopsis The initial report of this study's results found that early insertion of tympanostomy tubes in children with persistent otitis media with effusion did not improve outcomes at 3 years of age over delaying up to 9 months (see "Delaying tymp tubes doesn't worsen outcomes in effusion," N Engl J Med 2005; 344:1179-1187).
