Abstract

•Middle ear pressure and effusion's effect on TM mobility was assessed in 4 and 8 days AOM.•Middle ear pressure was a dominant factor of TM mobility loss in 4 days AOM.•Middle ear effusion was a dominant factor of TM mobility loss in 8 days AOM.•Effusion reduced TM mobility in 4 days ears only at high frequencies.•After removal of pressure and effusion, there was residual TM loss in both 4 and 8 days ears.
