What is myringotomy?

Myringotomy is a simple surgical procedure to drain the fluid accumulated in the middle ear. ENT doctors advise myringotomy grommet surgery if you are having recurring ear infections, earache or any other hearing problems.

Myringotomy is a simple surgical procedure done under general anaesthesia. Doctors rely on diagnostic tests like blood tests, tympanogram, and hearing tests for better treatment. The surgical procedure starts with a tiny incision on the eardrum to drain the fluid in the middle ear. A small tube or grommet called a myringotomy tube or tympanostomy tube is inserted. The tube will drain the remaining fluid and balance the pressure in the middle and inner ear. Grommets vary in different sizes and are used for several years. Surgery does not require sutures, stitches, or any outside cuts.

LAM, or Laser-Assisted Myringotomy, is a cutting-edge, less intrusive method for treating myringotomy. In this method, a laser incision is made to drain the fluid. This procedure is very convenient for performing surgery in an outpatient method using local anaesthesia. The remaining procedure is similar to the normal method, but this method takes lesser time to heal than the traditional method.
