The eardrum repair is the name given to the anatomical structure that separates the outer ear and the middle ear. Perforation of the eardrum causes hearing impairment, pressure disorders and makes the middle ear vulnerable to external factors.
It is usually encountered in people who have had frequent middle ear infections in childhood and have a nasal congestion infrastructure in connection with trauma. Long-term perforation can only be corrected by surgical means.
The surgical technique is chosen according to the patient’s existing additional ear problems, the location and size of the perforation in the membrane, and the ear anatomy. These are also factors that affect the success of the surgery. The patient’s regular follow-up visits and full compliance with the treatment increase the success of the surgery.
