    What is Myringotomy?

    A myringotomy is the next best option in cases where medication and other therapies have failed.

    A myringotomy can be performed in the following ways:

    • Hearing loss induced by prolonged fluid build-up is restored, and children’s speech development is delayed as a result of hearing loss.
    • To equalize pressure, tympanostomy tubes are placed. It may also aid in the prevention of recurrent ear infections and the buildup of fluid behind the eardrum.
    • To assist in the treatment of an ear infection that is resistant to medical treatment
    • To extract a sample of middle ear fluid to be tested in the lab for the presence of microorganisms.

    Myringotomy - Condition

    Acute or chronic otitis media can cause fluid to build up behind the eardrum (ear infection). It’s possible that the fluid will cause pain and/or hearing loss. Myringotomy is a surgical treatment that involves making a small incision in the eardrum to relieve pressure caused by fluid accumulation behind the eardrum. At this moment, little tubes known as a pressure-equalizing tube may also be introduced. The tubes are implanted to prevent fluid from building up behind the eardrum.

    The tubes should be checked at least twice a year because they are only meant to be temporary. Most tubes will fall out on their own, but they may need to be removed in some circumstances. The tubes are only for a short time and should not be left in for more than two years. A myringotomy usually does not necessitate an overnight stay in the hospital. It should only take about 15 minutes to complete the procedure. Within a few hours of the procedure, the patient should be discharged from the hospital.

      Myringotomy - Symptoms

      The ear is a complicated system with several nerves, canals, and membranes that might fail at any time. Here are several indicators that someone may require a myringotomy.

      1. Otitis media with effusion was diagnosed – A medical disease known as otitis media with effusion causes fluid to build up in the middle ear. If left untreated, this illness might lead to hearing loss.
      1. Eustachian tubes that aren’t properly formed – The eustachian tubes form when a fetus is still in the womb, although they do not always fully develop. As the youngster grows older, this can produce drainage issues.
      1. Adenoiditis – It is a condition in which the adenoids become inflamed. The adenoids are tissues that help the body fight infections. They are found in the throat and nose. Because all of these canals are related, when these tissues become inflamed, airway obstruction ensues, which affects the eustachian tubes.
      1. Cold or allergy symptoms are severe – Terrible cold or allergy, like adenoiditis, can obstruct the airways, damaging the eustachian tubes. Otitis media might occur as a result of this disorder.

      Myringotomy - Surgical Procedures

      Repeated use of antibiotics and decongestants does not always result in the permanent removal of adenoidectomy fluid in children and adults. As a result, more intervention may be necessary. This usually involves a myringotomy and the insertion of pressure equalization tubes. The procedure is normally performed during the day, with the patient arriving early in the morning and leaving later that day. The surgeon makes a small incision in the eardrum and drains the fluid while the child is asleep. After that, a thin plastic tube is inserted into the incision to let air into the middle ear, allowing the fluid to dissipate and prevent it from collecting. This operation can be performed in the office under local anesthetic on a willing adult.

      The tube will stay in the eardrum for a different amount of time, ranging from three to twelve months on average. The tube will eventually be ejected and the eardrum incision will seal in many youngsters. The ear will have had time to heal from the chronic inflammatory state, and the Eustachian tube will have developed sufficiently to function normally. In order to aid normal Eustachian function, an adenoidectomy (removal of the adenoid tissue close to the Eustachian tube) is performed in conjunction with the myringotomy in some patients. In other people, an allergy examination may be required to assist alleviate the condition, especially if it recurs.

      Recovery & Post Operation Take Care

      After ear tube surgery, you’ll spend some time in the recovery room. You may have grogginess and nausea as a result of the surgery and anesthesia.

      After your procedure, your surgeon will check on you to see how you’re doing. To cure the infection, they may give antibiotic ear drops. Additionally, your surgeon may advise you to use earplugs when doing specific activities like swimming or showering.

      Your surgeon will check on you every few months after surgery to monitor the tubes and make sure they’re working properly. They might also suggest a hearing test.

      To keep the ear tube in place and prevent it from sliding out too soon, your eardrum generally seals around it. Ear tubes usually fall out on their own after nine to 18 months. If your ear tubes haven’t fallen out after two years, your surgeon can remove them.
