About Tympanoplasty

The eardrum is a thin membrane that separates the ear canal from the middle ear. The exposure to loud noises or an injury can cause eardrum damage. The same may hinder the capability to hear and if left untreated, a patient can go deaf as well. Even though, the perforation in the ear doesn't cause a lot of complications in the beginning but makes eardrum susceptible to infections. The best way to go about it is a surgical procedure. Also, the treatment is suggested for hearing impairment if home care treatments and OTC medications don’t work.

Diagnosis and Treatment


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

When is tympanoplasty advised by an ENT doctor?

An ENT specialist advises undergoing tympanoplasty to a patient when oral medication or other methods do not work to fix the perforation in the eardrum. The doctor may advise surgical intervention i.e. tympanoplasty to restore the tympanic membrane. This surgical procedure improves the hearing ability and other symptoms that affect life’s productivity.

Can an eardrum hole get repaired on its own?

If a hole in the eardrum is minor, it usually heals on its own. However, patients suffering from a perforation in the eardrum should consult a well-experienced ENT doctor to get immediate assistance. Perforation in the eardrum if left untreated or doesn’t heal on its own can affect the hearing ability.

Can tympanoplasty surgery fix a hole in the eardrum?

Yes. Tympanoplasty is a modern treatment to fix the perforation in the eardrum. This procedure is minimally invasive, effective, and usually advised to patients with hole in the eardrum in order to restore the tympanic membrane while improving the hearing ability.

Does the eardrum hole get repaired with medicines?

Yes. At times, if the perforation is minor, it mostly heals on its own or through prescribed medicines. However, if the hole does not heal through medication, you should consult the ENT doctor for further treatment options.

Can the hole in the eardrum affect my hearing ability?

Yes. The hole in the eardrum makes the ear prone to a middle ear infection. And the recurrent ear infection due to perforation can result in partial or complete damage to your hearing ability.

Can a perforated eardrum cause loss of hearing?

Yes. The perforation makes the ear vulnerable to infection and can lead to partial or complete hearing loss. Consult the ENT doctor for a thorough diagnosis to get the best-suited treatment.

Should I avoid swimming after tympanoplasty surgery?

Yes. As advised by ENT experts, patients who have undergone tympanoplasty surgery are advised to avoid swimming for at least 10 days post-surgery. As the surgical site is vulnerable to infection and water contact can hinder the recovery while increasing the chances of complications.

How long does it take to recover after tympanoplasty?

Tympanoplasty is a modern technique that is performed by an experienced ENT surgeon. Patients who have undergone tympanoplasty are advised to continue normal activities in 3-4 days post-surgery, but the complete recovery may take a month. Discuss the dos and don’ts with your ENT doctor to make the recovery process faster.

Is tympanoplasty painful surgery?

No. Tympanoplasty is an advanced surgical procedure that is performed with modern medical instruments and under the effect of anesthesia. Anesthesia makes the surgery painless, and the post-surgery discomfort usually gets managed by medication prescribed by the doctor.

Different Types of Tympanoplasty

As reported in NCBI, according to the Wullstein Classification, tympanoplasty has five types depending on their severity and advanced symptoms:

Type 1- Repair of the tympanic membrane alone, no abnormality of the middle ear.

Type 2- Repair of the tympanic membrane and middle ear due to malleus that usually gets eroded. In this type, tympanoplasty includes grafting the tympanic membrane to the incus.

Type 3- Repair of the tympanic membrane onto the stapes head, in this type the malleus and incus have a defect.

Type 4- The tympanic membrane is grafted to the stapes footplate, which is movable.

Type 5- Repair involves the stapes footplate, which is fixed.
