What is Eardrum Repair ?
It is a surgical procedure done to treat a tear or a defect in the tympanic membrane of your ear. It is done in people suffering from tears, holes or gaps in their ear membranes. The tears or ruptures may occur due to ear infections, loud noises, trauma or injuries to the ear, Altitude or pressure changes, during cleaning the ear or during adjacent structure surgery. There are different types of eardrum repair or Tymphanoplasty based on the parts of the ear it involves. The repair may be done with the help of a graft material.
