Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of Tympanostomy Tube Delivery system [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Those adverse events which are procedural, serious, and device-related.

  • Effectiveness of the Tympanostomy Tube Delivery system [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The successful delivery of the tympanostomy tube across the tympanic membrane.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Procedure Success [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Successful placement of any tympanostomy tube, with no safety events.

  • Tube Retention [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Presence of the tympanostomy tube across the tympanic membrane at the follow-up visit.
