Surgery for Eardrum Reconstruction – Tympanoplasty
What is Tympanoplasty?
Procedure of septoplasty treatment?
Tympanoplasty, a surgical intervention, aims to mend a perforation or tear in the eardrum to reinstate normal hearing. This condition often arises from infections or trauma to the ear.
During the procedure, a surgeon meticulously repairs the eardrum by applying a patch over the hole or tear. This patch is typically crafted from the patient’s own tissue or a synthetic material. On occasion, specialized instruments may be employed to enhance the eardrum’s repair. Post-surgery, a bandage or dressing may be applied to maintain cleanliness and prevent infection.
Recovery duration can vary based on the extent of the injury, but generally, most patients can resume their regular activities within a few weeks after surgery.
