Tympanic membrane retraction pockets

Tympanic membrane retraction pockets

A tympanic membrane retraction pocket is a condition in which a part of the tympanic membrane lies deeper in the middle ear than is normal. It occurs as a result of negative pressure in the middle ear and is more common at a young age. Most common complaints are infected pockets causing deafness. These pockets develop as a result of blocked Eustachian tubes. It can lead to conductive hearing loss. Treatment includes use of a balloon to inflate the middle ear cleft. Surgical treatment includes resection of the tympanic membrane
