Ear drum repair - Myringoplasty

Summary

Ear drum repair - Myringoplasty

There are several options for treating a perforated eardrum. If the perforation is from recent trauma, many ear, nose and throat specialists will elect to watch and see if it heals on its own. Myringoplasty (or Tympanoplasty) can be performed through the ear canal or through an incision behind the ear. The surgeon takes a graft from the tissues under the skin around the ear and uses it to reconstruct the eardrum.
