Does suppurative otitis media require surgery?

The acute phase is usually treated with medication to control the infection. If the disease is severe, with lesions, granulation or even bone destruction in the middle ear, or if the inflammation is absorbed but the tympanic membrane is left perforated, surgery is required.
