Myringoplasty. Tears, holes and injuries in the eardrum can be healed using transplants from elsewhere in your own body.
There may be quite different reasons for a tear or injury to the eardrum. As well as changes caused by illnesses, mechanical perforations are also possible, especially among children.
A hole in the eardrum frequently heals itself. If the eardrum rupture is big or complex, the body is unable to heal itself. In such cases our ENT surgeons assist in closing the eardrum hole.
We often use myringoplasty to close a perforation of the eardrum surface and restore its original function. The method allows us to reconstruct the eardrum using the body's own tissue.
In the first stage of myringoplasty, suitable material is harvested from the connective tissue of muscles, from the perichondrium or cartilage in the body. This is a quick and reliable standard procedure. We insert the tiny graft into the defective place of the eardrum and in this way close the eardrum perforation.
