Myringoplasty

Michael Setzen Otolaryngology, PC great neck, manhattan: Myringoplasty

Myringoplasty is the name of the surgical procedure that is used to repair a hole in the eardrum. When this procedure is combined with a procedure to clear the middle ear of disease and further repair the eardrum, it is called tympanoplasty.

Myringoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure or with one overnight stay. In most cases the patient is under general anesthetic while the surgery is performed.

A cut is made behind the ear, or in some cases a small cut is made in front of the ear. Tissue from the area where the cut is made is usually used to repair and cover the hole in the eardrum.

Repairing the eardrum can improve hearing, keep the ear dry, reduce pain, and prevent infection.
