Middle ear operations

When there is a chronic disorder in middle ear ventilation, a small incision is made to open the eardrum and sometimes tympanum (eardrum) draining is required.

Eardrum perforations may be due to trauma or be caused by inflammation. In some cases this perforation does not close by itself. It is then necessary to close it surgically.

In most cases this operation requires general anaesthesia, although it is also possible to perform it with sedation using local anaesthesia.
