Ears

Myringotomy with drainage
The aim of treatment is to clear the ear of the fluid and to ensure its ventilation, allowing pressure equalization on both sides of the tympanic membrane. In children, it is performed under general anesthesia in adults under local anesthesia. Consists in incision of the eardrum (for a length of about 1.5 mm) and the fluid removal from the ear, and then the introduction of a small drain. The drain remains in the ear for a few months – to the ear could still clean and even pressure – and when it is rolled, cut overgrown without a trace.

Tympanoplasty
