A Tonsillectomy

B Grommet insertion

C Myringotomy with grommet insertion

D Adenoidectomy with grommet insertion

Ans. D Adenoidectomy with grommet insertion

Ref. Scott Brown 7th/ed Vol 7 p 896-906 The child is having recurrent URTI with high arched palate and failure to grow which indicates child is having adenoids and since there is impaired hearing it means child has developed otitis media as a complication. Hence logically the child should be treated with adenoidectomy with grommet insertion. This is further supported by following lines from Scott Brown.

"Current practice is to perform adenoidectomy as an adjunct to the insertion

of ventilation tubes." -Scott Brown's 7th/ed Vol 7, P 902
