Myringotomy With Grommet

 A myringotomy, sometimes called by other names, is a surgical procedure in which a tiny incision is created in the eardrum (tympanic membrane) to relieve pressure caused by excessive buildup of fluid, or to drain pus from the middle ear.

A tympanostomy tube (also known as a grommet, T-tube, ear tube, pressure equalization tube, vent, PE tube or myringotomy tube) is a small tube inserted into the eardrum in order to keep the middle ear aerated for a prolonged period of time, and to prevent the accumulation of fluid in the middle ear.

Myringotomy and the use of grommets corrects hearing loss and prevents further deterioration in most cases. Re-insertion of the grommets may be required in a small minority.

In children with middle ear infection the procedure is justified, even though the condition resolves itself naturally by the eighth or tenth year, to prevent the social and educational handicap of several years’ hearing loss. Also, the untreated condition may lead to permanent damage in the inner ear. Surgery is also successful in preventing perforation and relieving the intense pain of middle ear infection, a condition which, if untreated, can lead to serious infection, possibly extending to the brain or causing facial paralysis
