When to seek medical care?

The doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory, analgesics, antihistamines and antipruritics. But when the doctor suspects mastoiditis, perforated tympanic membrane or suppurative complications, they will recommend the best treatment for chronic myringitis associated with the ruptured tympanic membrane.

What is the Procedure for Myringoplasty?

Myringoplasty is generally performed under a general anaesthetic, but a local anaesthetic can also be used. The surgery usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour. Our surgeon will use a patch (graft) to cover the hole. The graft will be inserted through an incision made either in front or behind your ear or inside your ear canal. The surgeon will lift the eardrum, place the graft underneath it, and support it with the dissolving sponge.
