Myringotomy surgery can cure hole in your ear drum with fast recovery and improved hearing
Myringotomy is a common surgery of the ear where a small hole is made into the eardrum to drain out infectious materials. It is a typical surgery for treating otitis media with effusion (OME) or a middle ear infection where it is paired with the insertion of a tympanostomy tube. OME happens when a virus causes the area behind the eardrum to become inflamed. Middle ear infection is most common amongst children and when antibiotics and home remedies won’t work, Myringotomy is performed.

Growth of bacteria
Ear pain and Loss of balance
Partial or permanent hearing
Slow speech development in children
Infection that spreads to the bones of the ear
Antibiotics and pain medications can help reduce the symptoms to an extent. Moreover, the ENT specialist may also prescribe autoinsufflation to adjust the air pressure in your ear. However, if the condition is severe, then surgery is the only option. Myringotomy is performed to relieve pressure caused by excessive buildup of fluid in the middle ear. The ENT specialist creates a small hole in the eardrum to drain out fluids such as pus, blood, or water. The doctor may put in a tube to prevent it from getting backed up. It is an outpatient procedure and is performed under local anesthesia. However, children may be kept under observation for one night to monitor their post-operative condition.
