Myringoplasty

Myringoplasty at Buckshaw Hospital

What is a myringoplasty?

Myringoplasty is a surgery to repair a large hole (perforation) in your eardrum that has not healed itself within a few weeks. A perforated eardrum can be caused by trauma or an infection in your middle ear that bursts through your eardrum, and can lead to repeated ear infections and poorer hearing.

This operation is usually done under general anaesthetic or sometimes local anaesthetic and takes between an hour and an hour and a half. It involves using a piece of tissue, called a graft, to cover the hole. It may be carried out down your ear canal or through a small cut in front of or behind your ear. Your surgeon will usually lift your eardrum, place the graft underneath, support it with a dissolving sponge and replace your eardrum.
