  • Take material for analysis for a disease such as chronic otitis media
  • When taking X-rays. In this case, a special solution is injected through the eardrum

The most common reason for a puncture of the tympanic membrane is otitis media of the middle ear, which could not be cured by other methods.

During the initial examination, the doctor collects the following information necessary to eliminate the risks of complications:

  • What is the condition of the eardrum
  • Sensitivity of the patient membrane to loud sounds
  • The patient’s predilection for intolerance to various medications is determined
  • In difficult cases, additional studies are prescribed, for example, tomography

Before giving an injection into the eardrum, the doctor treats the puncture site with alcohol. The procedure itself is performed under local anesthesia to relieve pain. Children can be given general anesthesia if the child is unable to remain still during surgery.

Sulfur, pus and other substances that can cause inflammation are eliminated from the ear canal. Further, the ENT installs a special funnel and punctures through it. The drug, which guarantees effective treatment of otitis media, is injected necessarily warmed up to the patient’s body temperature. Otherwise, nausea or vomiting may occur.

The needle is inserted at a short distance, about 1.5-2 mm. With the right procedure, some of the fluid should come out of the nasal passage.
