Eardrum Perforation

A hole or perforation in the eardrum may occur for many different reasons including ear infections, poor Eustachian tube function, injuries, and cysts. The most common symptom of a perforated eardrum is hearing loss. Ear drainage and pain may also occur when a perforation is caused by a chronic ear infection. Cholesteatoma and chronic mastoiditis also cause tympanic membrane perforations.

Most perforated eardrums can be successfully repaired with an outpatient surgical procedure known as tympanoplasty. Chronic ear perforations may require a tympanomastoidectomy. Both of these outpatient procedures are frequently performed at our surgery center.
