Repairing the eardrum

Myringoplasty is an operation carried out to repair a hole in the eardrum. The operation is necessary to:

  • Avoid recurrent ear infections
  • Protect the middle ear
  • Improve hearing
  • Enable patients to swim without facing infection as a consequence

How is the procedure performed?

The operation is performed under light narcosis. It involves taking a piece of small tissue from behind the ear in the hairline to use as a natural graft. This graft is then slipped behind the eardrum to cover the perforation. At the end of the surgery your ear is packed with special light dressing therefore, you can leave our hospital after a couple hours.

Expectations and Advice following the Myringoplasty surgery:

  • You can go home on the same day
  • There will be some packing inside your ear, to be removed after 7 days
  • Do expect sensations of ear blockage while having the pack in your ear
  • Do expect mild dizziness / instability of balance
  • You may have a small bloodstained discharge “ooze” in the first 24-48 hrs
  • Do not expect any improvement in hearing in the first few weeks after packs are removed
  • There should be no increase in pain, discharge or bleeding
  • Avoid getting water on the wound or in the ear
  • Off work / school for about 3 days
