More Information on Ossiculoplasty

Indication

This type of surgical procedure is recommended to treat hearing impairement caused due to damaged middle ear bones. The damage can be as a result of:

  • Trauma or injury
  • Severe infection
  • Tumor in the ear

Pre-Procedure

The doctor will instruct to fast for 8 to 10 hours, prior to the surgery.

During-Procedure

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia by an experienced ENT surgeon.

During the procedure,

  • The surgeon uses an operating microscope to view the eardrum through the ear canal. If the canal is too small, then an incision may be made behind the ear.
  • The surgeon makes a tiny incision behind the ear and carefully elevates the eardrum.
  • Damaged ear bones are either reshaped so they function better, or removed and replaced with prosthetic ossicles.
  • In some cases, graft from cartilage of ear canal may possibly be used to repair the damaged bones in the middle ear.
  • The eardrum is, then, placed back in its normal position and the incision is sutured.

Post-Procedure

After the procedure, the patient may return home on the same day. 

Discharge from the ear is common for 7 to 10 days after the surgery, however if it continues for long time and causes pain, swelling or foul smelling odour, consult the doctor immediately.

The doctor will advise to

  • Avoid strenuous activities for first few weeks.
  • Strictly avoid blowing the nose
  • Keep ear away from the water

Risk and Complication

Ossiculoplasty is relatively a safe procedure. However, commonly known risks include:

  • Bleeding or infection in the ear
  • Worsening of hearing, or, in rare cases, complete loss of hearing
  • Hole in the eardrum
  • In rare cases, damage to facial nerve
  • Altered taste
