    Tympanoplasty Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

    Diagnosis of hearing loss

    Before selecting a treatment for hearing loss, a proper diagnosis is necessary to determine the cause and severity of the ear problem. Common diagnostic tests that are performed to diagnose hearing problems are:

    • Physical examination: Your doctor will physically examine the ear canal with a light to look for possible causes such as earwax accumulation, inflammation from an infection, structural issues, etc. Your doctor may also perform a whisper test. The doctor will cover one ear to see how well you hear words and other sounds at different volumes. There are also some mobile apps that help perform these hearing tests.
    • Tuning fork tests: A tuning fork can be used to detect hearing loss and determine where the damage is present in the ear. 
    • Audiometer tests: Audiometer tests are performed to determine what is the quietest sound you can hear. 

    Surgery for hearing loss

    There are mainly four types of ear surgeries to correct hearing loss:

    • Myringoplasty: A myringoplasty is performed to repair a hole in the eardrum by replacing the tympanic membrane with a graft membrane from somewhere else in the body.
    • Ossiculoplasty: Ossiculoplasty is the reconstruction of the middle ear ossicular chain which has been disrupted or destroyed to restore the transfer of sound/vibrations through the middle ear.
    • Tympanoplasty: Tympanoplasty is performed to repair a ruptured eardrum to improve hearing or stop recurring ear infections.
    • Mastoidectomy: A mastoidectomy is a surgery for reshaping/restructuring the mastoid bone to remove diseased cells or to treat hearing loss.

    Once you have been diagnosed, your surgeon will help you prepare for your surgery. Ear surgery can be performed endoscopically or openly. Generally, after endoscopic surgery, there is a small, barely noticeable scar in front of behind the ear. The surgeon will perform the required corrections and then close the incision with small sutures.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the common hearing problems?

    The most common reasons behind hearing problems that can lead to permanent hearing loss are damage/dysfunction of the eustachian tube, recurring ear infections, tympanic membrane perforation, cholesteatoma, etc.

    Is tympanoplasty painful?

    Tympanoplasty can be performed under either general or local anesthesia and is usuaully painless. There may be mild pain and discomfort for the first 24 hours after the surgery. This pain may last for an entire week in severe cases.

    Can hearing problems recur after tympanoplasty?

    No. Generally, hearing problems do not recur after a tympanoplasty. However, in rare cases, the patient may experience some loss of hearing if there is extensive scarring in the tissues surrounding the tympanum.

    Is tympanoplasty covered under health insurance?

    Yes, like most other ENT procedures, tympanoplasty is covered by most major insurance providers. If you have any doubts regarding the terms of your insurance policy, you can contact your insurance provider for further details or get in touch with the insurance team at Pristyn Care.

    What is the cost of tympanoplasty for treatment of hearing loss at Prsityn Care?

    The cost of tympanoplasty in Chennai ranges from Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 60,000 at Pristyn Care. This cost range encompasses the entire cost of the treatment from diagnosis to recovery. However, it may vary if the patient requires extra care due to postoperative complications, comorbidities, etc.

    Can tympanoplasty affect the sense of taste?

    A slight alteration in taste is common for some time after tympanoplasty surgery. Normally, it resolves itself after some time but in rare cases, it can be permanent if there is any damage to the chorda tympani nerve (CTN).

    What are the complications associated with tympanoplasty?

    Complications associated with tympanoplasty surgery are:

    • Failure of the graft
    • Complete hearing loss
    • Nerve damage, leading to facial paralysis
    • Tinnitus (ringing noise in the ear)

    What are the benefits of a tympanoplasty?

    Benefits of a tympanoplasty include:

    • It prevents permanent loss of hearing
    • It returns hearing back to normal
    • It prevents recurring ear infections
    • It prevents chronic tinnitus and headaches

    What happens if a ruptured eardrum is not surgically treated?

    A small rupture in the eardrum heals on its own without the need for surgical intervention. However, in case of a large tear, the eardrum does not fix itself and needs to be surgically corrected. If surgery is not provided, it makes the patient more vulnerable to recurrent ear infections and permanent hearing loss.

    How long does it take to recover from tympanoplasty?

    Complete recovery after a tympanoplasty takes 2-3 months. The stitches are removed about a week after the surgery, and you can return to your usual activities within 2 weeks of the surgery. However, you may experience slight tinnitus and muffled hearing for a while.

    After the surgery, you should avoid the following to improve recovery:

    • Sneezing very hard
    • Swimming or diving
    • Lifting weights or strenuous physical activities
    • Being hit in the head
    • Playing a musical instrument like (trumpet, clarinet, trombone, saxophone, etc.) that requires blowing
    • Air travel
    • Showers
    • Sudden/jerking head motions
    • Blowing nose too hard

    You should avoid any strain or pressure in the region to ensure there are no problems during your recovery period.

    How to improve recovery after tympanoplasty?

    At home, you can follow the given tips to improve your recovery after a tympanoplasty:

    • There may be a little bleeding and drainage from the ear after the surgery. It is normal but if there is too much bleeding or pus drainage, contact your ENT doctor immediately.
    • You can remove the dressing 24 hours after the surgery. However, if you want, you can put a clean dressing on the surgical area while sleeping.
    • Apply an antibiotic ointment on the incision to prevent infections. Visit your ENT surgeon about a week after the surgery for suture removal and to make sure there are no complications.
    • Keep your ear dry. Do not shower or wash your hair for about 3-6 days after the surgery. If you have to wash your hair, use earplugs or cotton balls dipped in vaseline to prevent the incision from getting wet.
    • Take your medicines as prescribed.
