Tympanoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reconstruct the eardrum when it has been badly torn or perforated(hole in the eardrum). The eardrum, a membrane between the outer ear and middle ear, also known as the tympanic membrane, vibrates to assist in the hearing process. When the eardrum is damaged, hearing loss often occurs. Perforation of the eardrum may also cause severe pain, dizziness, or bleeding from the ear.
Eardrum repair is a surgical procedure used to fix a hole or tear in the eardrum, also known as the tympanic membrane. This surgery can also be used to repair or replace the three tiny bones behind the eardrum.
Repeated ear infections, surgery, or trauma may cause damage to your eardrum or middle ear bones that must be corrected with surgery. Damage to the eardrum or middle ear bones can result in hearing loss and an increased risk of ear infections.
Tympanoplasty is a safe and effective outpatient procedure used to both eradicate the disease from the middle ear and restore hearing and middle ear function. A number of surgical approaches and grafting techniques are available for use by the surgeon
What are the types of operations for hole in eardrum are avaialble at Sri Onkar Eye & ENT Care Centre?
If the hole or tear in your eardrum is small, your doctor may first try to patch the hole with gel or a paper-like tissue. This procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes and can often be done in the doctor’s office with only local anesthesia.
A tympanoplasty is performed if the hole in your eardrum is large or if you have a chronic ear infection that cannot be cured with antibiotics. You will most likely be in the hospital for this surgery and will be placed under general anesthesia. You will be unconscious during this procedure.
An ossiculoplasty is performed if the three tiny bones of your middle ear, known as the ossicles, have been damaged by ear infections or trauma. This procedure is also performed under general anesthesia. The bones can be replaced either by using bones from a donor or by using prosthetic devices.
Why someone undergo Tympanoplasty surgery?
There are several reasons a tympanoplasty may need to be performed. Occasionally, such surgery is performed to treat certain types of congenital deafness. More common reasons for this operation include injury to the tympanic membrane due to:
- Serious middle ear infection
- Insertion of a foreign object into the ear canal
- Accidental injury during ear tube placement
- Traumatic injury
- Extreme changes in ear pressure, or barotrauma
Everyone experiences changes in ear pressure at some point, but barotrauma due to a blocked eustachian tube, may, in extreme cases, cause the eardrum to rupture. This may occur as a result of:
- Exposure to extremely loud noise
- Airplane travel
- Scuba diving
- Traveling high in the mountains
- Nasal congestion due to an upper respiratory infection or allergic reaction
While a bad ear infection may be the cause of the rupture of the tympanic membrane, the perforation will also make the ear more susceptible to infection since the eardrum serves as a protective membrane keeping germs from entering the inner ear.
Diagnosis of Eardrum Perforation
Whenever there are symptoms of pain, discharge or bleeding from the ear, or hearing loss, a doctor should be consulted since these symptoms may be the result of eardrum perforation. Sometimes, when the eardrum is perforated, the ossicles, or small bones behind the eardrum, are broken as well. When this happens, hearing loss may be severe. Eardrum perforation is diagnosed by an examination of the ear using an instrument known as an otoscope. A hearing test may be performed to evaluate whether the patient has sustained any hearing loss.
Minor eardrum perforations often do not need any treatment, as the hole will close by itself within a few days. Antibiotics, ear drops or decongestants may help dry fluid accumulations and clear lingering infections during this process. If a perforation persists for many weeks, or if there is continued ear infection which does not respond to antibiotic treatment, surgical intervention may be necessary.
After an eardrum repair procedure
After your surgery, your doctor will fill your ear with cotton packing. This packing should remain in your ear for five to seven days after your surgery. A bandage is usually placed over your entire ear to protect it. People who undergo an eardrum repair procedure are typically released from the hospital immediately.
You may be given ear drops after the surgery. To apply them, gently remove the packing and put the drops in your ear. Replace the packing and don’t put anything else in your ear.
Try to prevent water from entering your ear during recovery. Avoid swimming and wear a shower cap to keep water out when you bathe. Do not “pop” your ears or blow your nose. If you need to sneeze, do so with your mouth open so that pressure does not build up in your ears.
Avoid crowded places and people who may be sick. If you catch a cold after surgery, it could increase your risk of contracting an ear infection.
After surgery, you may feel shooting pain in your ear or you may feel as though your ear is filled with liquid. You may also hear popping, clicking, or other sounds in your ear. These symptoms are usually mild and improve after a few days.
Recovery from Tympanoplasty
For a few days after a tympanoplasty, the patient will experience some soreness and ear pain which may be treated with pain medication. There may also be some drainage from the ear. These symptoms usually subside quickly. Patients must be careful to keep the ear clean and dry after surgery in order to promote healing and lessen the risk of infection. For the first week, packing is usually kept in the ear and sometimes a dressing covers the outer ear as well.
The symptoms experienced before the surgical procedure, such as hearing loss, usually abate quickly after the tympanoplasty procedure. During the period immediately following a tympanoplasty, patients should refrain strong nose blowing, swimming and air travel and try to avoid crowds in an effort to avoid respiratory infections.
