An eardrum rupture is a small hole or tear in your eardrum, or tympanic membrane. The tympanic membrane is a thin tissue that divides your middle ear and outer ear canal. This membrane vibrates when sound waves enter your ear. The vibration continues through the bones of the middle ear. A number of things can cause the eardrum to rupture; one of the most common causes is an ear infection. When the middle ear is infected, pressure builds up and pushes against the eardrum. When the pressure gets too great, it can cause the eardrum to perforate. When that happens, you may suddenly notice that the pain and pressure you've felt from the infection suddenly stops and pus drains from the ear. You may need an immediate medical assistance if it is in severe condition. You can connect with me over a call or video conferencing as per your convenience.

Ear pain is usually caused by an infection of the ear area, including outer ear infections, mastoiditis, or middle ear infections. An ear infection (sometimes called acute otitis media) is an infection of the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. Children are more likely than adults to get ear infections. Because ear infections often clear up on their own, treatment may begin with managing pain and monitoring the problem. Sometimes, antibiotics are used to clear the infection. Some people are prone to having multiple ear infections. This can cause hearing problems and other serious complications. you may need to discuss your problem in detail to get early and effective treatment.

Ear infections are a common cause of eardrum rupture, especially in children. During an ear infection, fluids accumulate behind the eardrum. The pressure from the fluid buildup can cause the tympanic membrane to break or rupture. Pain is the main symptom of eardrum rupture. For some, the pain may be severe. It can remain steady throughout the day, or it can increase or decrease in intensity. You may have some temporary hearing loss or a reduction in hearing in the affected ear hence you should seek an immediate consultation for effective treatment.

Tympanoplasty - Know Forms Of It!

Tympanoplasty - Know Forms Of It!

Tympanoplasty is a surgical operation for reconstruction or repairing of a perforated eardrum (tympanic membrane) and/or the middle ear bones (ossicles). The purpose is to also improve or restore hearing at the same time. It can be performed under general or local anesthesia. Eardrum might get perforated from chronic infection or from trauma to the eardrum.

Types of Tympanoplasty:

These are the following types of Tympanoplasty:

  1. Type I Tympanoplasty (Myringoplasty): It involves the restoration of perforated eardrums by grafting with materials like Gelfilm, AlloDerm, Gelfoam, fat, and cigarette paper.

  2. Type II Tympanoplasty: It is used for tympanic perforations with malleus erosion and involves grafting onto the incus or remains of malleus.

  3. Type III Tympanoplasty: It involves placing a graft onto stapes on the destruction of two ossicles and providing protection for the assembly.

  4. Type IV Tympanoplasty: Used for ossicular destruction, it involves placing a graft around or onto a stapes footplate.

  5. Type V Tympanoplasty: It is used when a footplate of stapes is fixed.

Diagnosis:

A complete physical test is performed along with an audiogram and a history of hearing loss, keeping into consideration of facial weakness or vertigo. Otoscopy assesses the mobility of the tympanic membrane and malleus. A fistula test is recommended in case of dizziness or marginal perforation of the eardrum.

Procedure:

The surgeon must consider the location and size of the perforation when Tympanoplasty is considered.

  1. In Type I Tympanoplasty when perforation is small, an incision is made into an ear canal to elevate away and lift the remaining eardrum forward from the bony ear canal, using an operating microscope to see into the ear. If a perforation is large or if it is far forward, away from the surgeon’s view, an incision might be performed behind the ear to elevate the outer ear forward, which helps in providing access to perforation.

  2. When the perforation is exposed, the remnant is forwardly rotated and the bones are inspected. Scar tissue, if present, is removed with laser or micro hooks.

  3. Tissues are taken from the back of the ear, the tragus, or from a vein, then dried and thinned.

  4. The graft is supported by placing an absorbable gelatin sponge under the eardrum, then inserted underneath the eardrum remnant, and folded back onto the perforation to provide closure. The sheet is also then placed against the graft which helps to prevent it from sliding out.

  5. If it is open from the back, the ears are stitched together with sutures being buried under the skin. A sterile patch is placed outside the ear canal.

Results:

Ninety percent of the time, Tympanoplasty is successful. This surgery relieves pain and removes infection symptoms entirely. Hearing loss is extremely minor or not at all there after it.

Post-Operative Care:

  1. It is common to have a discharge from an external ear for a few days after surgery. But if this problem continues, the doctor should be consulted.

  2. Don’t touch or remove the packing in the ear canal.

  3. Keep the ears dry until it heals completely.

  4. Don’t lift heavy weights until it heals completely.

  5. Avoid flying for a few weeks post-surgery to protect tympanums against fluctuating air pressure.

  6. Avoid coughing, straining, blowing nose, and sneezing to avoid dislodging of graft.

Postoperative care is required on the part of the patient as mostly it is a daycare or maximum one-day stay procedure. But the complete healing takes minimum one and a half to two months time.

Take Away:

Tympanoplasty is performed to repair the eardrum and middle ear. It also improves hearing. Most of the time, the procedure is successful, relieving pain and eliminating infections completely. However, consulting a doctor is always advisable.
