Ear Noise (Tinnitus)

Myringotomy
- a tiny incision is made in the eardrum in order to relieve pressure by releasing fluids; often performed to treat otisis media, or an infection of the middle ear.
Myringotomy with tubes
- often small pressure equalization tubes are placed in the eardrum after a myringotomy in order to stent the eardrum open, allowing external ventilation of the middle ear.
Intratympanic steroids
- steroids are delievered into the inner ear by means of a small needle. This procedure is often used to treat inner ear disease and sudden hearing loss, or SHL. Occasionally this procedure is used to treat Meniere's disease, but more typically intratympanic gentamicin proves more effective.
