At its core, eardrum paracentesis is an incision made by an otorhinolaryngologist to treat and diagnose diseases of the ear canal. The procedure is similar to tympanotomy and has the same goals.
The paracentosis procedure is prescribed only when the doctor collects all data on the medical history and individual characteristics of the patient.
So, indications for paracentesis can be as follows:
The appearance of such signs as a sharp headache, dizziness, nausea, combined with otitis media, is an indication for such an operation as opening the tympanic membrane, followed by treatment of the disease. In addition, with otitis media, surgery is necessary when anti-inflammatory drug treatment is ineffective or intoxication of the body is present.To remove excess pressure in the ear and clear pus (inflammatory fluid) in the treatment of acute purulent otitis media, a paracentesis procedure is also performed. In such cases, the incision helps relieve pain and fever.
Since paracentesis is more often prescribed for children, due to a greater predisposition to otitis media in this category of patients, the Amel Dental Clinic has created conditions for comfortable waiting and quick, painless ear surgery for otitis media, which is performed only by otorhinolaryngologists with extensive experience.
The procedure is carried out under sterile conditions using advanced equipment and proven, effective medicines that contribute to the speedy recovery of young patients. The incision and insertion of a special needle are made on a minimal surface in order to speed up the healing and rehabilitation process.
In addition to children, paracentesis for otitis media can also be prescribed for adults. For them, the Amel clinic also has all the conditions for such an unpleasant procedure.
Before the procedure, the physician conducts extensive research to ensure that there are no complications and that the treatment is effective. In addition, anesthesia during the operation is performed by an experienced anesthesiologist, which ensures that there are no negative reactions to anesthesia and pain medications.
The doctors of the clinic take responsibility for the health of the patient from the first visit to complete recovery.
After the myringotomy is performed, a special tampon is inserted into the patient, which collects the discharge from the incision. Change of tampon is necessary every 2-3 hours, or at the time prescribed by the attending physician.
Within a week, the contraction of the incision occurs. During this period, measures must be taken to protect the area of operation from dust and moisture. Do not allow clogging of the operation site, otherwise inflammation may develop.
Also, it is necessary to treat the incision with antiseptics prescribed by a doctor and follow the recommendations:
The fastest healing is facilitated by full adherence to the doctor’s recommendation.
In general, the correct incision of the tympanic membrane, performed in the clinic, subject to a sterile environment by an experienced doctor, does not lead to complications and stimulates the fastest normalization of the patient’s condition.
However, if after the operation there is again an increased body temperature, headaches and hearing loss, it is necessary to urgently contact the specialist who performed the operation. Reception will help identify pathology and speed up treatment.
The paracentesis procedure is not applied to children under 6 months of age, as well as to patients with scars on the tympanic membrane or individual structural features of the ear canal that prevent surgery.
