About Tympanoplasty

Ear Repair Surgery is a procedure that is performed to close the tear in the eardrum or repair the damaged eardrum. This surgery is performed only for the eardrum, and not the ear bones.

There are 2 types of procedures to repair perfoated eardrum

  • Myringoplasty - A small piece of special paper or gel foam is used to temporarily cover the holes, thereby promoting natural healing process. 
  • Tympanoplasty - For relatively larger holes in the eardrum, Tympanoplasty is used. In this surgery, the hole is patched with a graft of the patient’s own tissue.

More Information on Tympanoplasty

Indication

The doctor generally waits for 4 to 6 weeks to allow natural healing, after eardrum has developed any defect or a hole.

However, if the eardrum is does not get repaired by natural healing process, then the doctor might suggest the surgery. The eardrum needs a repair in following cases:

  • A tiny hole in the eardrum
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
  • Severe ear infection

Eardrum defects are common in children.

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. Myringoplasty generally takes 10 to 30 minutes, while Tympanoplasty can take upto 3 hours.

During the surgery,

  • 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.
  • In myringoplasty, the tiny holes are patched by overlaying a special paper or gel foam. This promotes the natural healing process.
  • Tymphanoplasty can be performed using underlay or overlay technique.
  • In underlay technique, the graft is placed in such a way that it extends under the hole to be repaired. 
  • Overlay technique involves the placement of the graft on the outside of the tympanic membrane.
  • To hold the tissue in place, a speacial sheet is used to pack the graft. This sheet gradually dissolves over the next 2 to 3 months while the eardrum heals.

Post-Procedure

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

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

Eardrum Repair Surgery is relatively a safe procedure. However, commonly known risks include:

  • Incomplete healing of the hole in the eardrum
  • Bleeding or infection in the ear
  • Worsening of hearing, or, in rare cases, complete loss of hearing
