With the increase of age, except for the left ear of the <1 year old group and the 2 year old group, the mean RECD of the same side ear of children of different ages showed a decreasing trend, and the difference was statistically significant when the difference was ≥2 years old; except for the 2 year old group, The difference in the average RECD of the left and right ears of the same age group was statistically significant.
