Grommet is a small ventilation tube which is inserted through the small artificial opening on the ear drum. The tube will fall off in 6 to 18 months.

Who needs the operation?
Those who have middle ear infection with effusion

Why having the operation?
The aim is to equalize the pressure on both sides of the ear drum so as to improve hearing. In case of acute middle ear infection, insertion of the small tube can help to drain the pus out.

Surgical risk and possible complications:

  • Common risk: recurrence, infection, bleeding, residual perforation of ear drum (around 1 %)
  • Less common risk: hearing loss, vertigo, facial nerve paralysis, dislodgement of ventilation tube into middle ear, implantation cholesteatoma

What would happen if NO operation?
Complication of acute middle ear infection will result, such as acute mastoiditis, intracranial spread.

Eardrum Repair (Tympanoplasty)
Perforated Eardrum

Surgical Risk and Complications:

  • More common risk (around 1 %): allergic reaction to ear packing, infection, bleeding, loss of taste sensation
  • Less common risk (<1%): hearing impairment, dizziness

Tympanoplasty

What would happen if NO operation?
Recurrent infections with ear discharge, sometimes it may come with further hearing impairment due to damage to the inner ear structures.

Mastoidectomy

  • Commoner risk: recurrence and residual disease, infection, bleeding, worsening of conductive hearing loss, taste loss or disturbance, allergic reaction to packing, dizziness
  • Less common risk (<1%): facial nerve injury, partial to total sensorineural hearing loss, ear canal stenosis, pinna deformity due to infection of pinna, intracranial injury
