Informacje o zabiegu

Adenoidectomy and tympanostomy are surgical procedures. The most common indication for this treatment is otitis media with effusion and coexisting adenoid hypertrophy (further called third tonsil). The hypertrophy of lymphatic tissue from which the tonsils are built can be significant and press the ear trumpet outlet. Hearing trumpets, also called the Eustachian tubes, provide pressure equalization between the middle ear and throat. Hypertrophy of pharyngeal tonsil blocking the auditory trumpet may lead to otitis media with effusion, which results in fluid accumulation in the tympanic cavity. This condition severely impairs hearing. The procedure recommended in this situation is tympanostomy, i.e. ventilation drainage through the tympanic membrane. The surgeon inserts a small tube through the tympanic membrane, so that one end is in the middle ear and other end in the external auditory canal. The secretion filling the tympanic cavity can escape freely. The treatment restores hearing, almost immediately. Causal action is also required – removal of adenoid hypertrophy, which blocks the ear trumpet. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia by highly qualified medical staff. The patient falls asleep on the operating time. During the period of convalescence, it is necessary to keep your lifestyle healthy, avoid significant physical effort and stay in cold rooms. The patient is recommended to have a special diet containing semi-liquid/liquid foods, avoiding hot, spicy meals during the first days after the treatment. Tympanostomy is not a contraindication to showering, but special care should be taken. It is forbidden to dive, immerse head in water or swim in the pool.

Przebieg zabiegu

This treatment combines adenoidectomy and tympanostomy. It is usually performed under general anaesthesia. This is symptomatic but also causal treatment. When the tympanic membrane is drained, the patient’s hearing improves almost immediately. The general condition is also improved significantly. During surgery, the cause of otitis media with effusion – hypertrophy of the pharyngeal tonsil – is removed. The Eustachian tube is unblocked by cutting out the overgrown lymphatic tissue.
