Procedures
Ear Surgery (Pinnaplasty)

Pinnaplasty is a type of a surgical procedure used for the correction of prominent ears. This procedure is also known as otoplasty or ear pinning. This ear plastic surgery is conducted on people of both the sexes and of all ages, who wish to correct their ears that tend to stick out.

Some people may not bother about the “bat” shape of their ears, but, for others, continuous comments from others can lead to distress, particularly during school years. Pinnaplasty is the best and simple procedure that can solve the problem safely and quickly.

Ear pinning surgery involves making an incision just behind the ear in the natural fold where the ear joins the head. This lets the surgeon reshape the year by removing some part of the cartilage. The surgeon can then use permanent internal stitches to keep the ears in their new place.

Who are the best candidates for pinnaplasty?

The best candidates for pinnaplasty include both children and teenagers, although adults may choose to undergo the surgery as well. This surgery is not recommended for children younger than five as their ears will still be growing and developing.

You can go for pinnaplasty if your ears are protruding or sticking out at a prominent angle from your head. Pinnaplasty is typically carried out in people who have one ear that sticks out much more than the other. In such cases, pinnaplasty can restore the symmetry of ears.

Nasal Polyp Surgery

Nasal polyps are fleshy swellings or polypoidal, benign/non-cancerous masses that develop in the lining of the nose and paranasal sinuses. They usually occur in both nostrils, though unilateral polyps rarely occur. Polyp formation in the nasal cavity is due to chronic allergic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis, and, less commonly due to underlying disease such as cystic fibrosis.

Patients with large polyps present with nasal obstruction (breathing difficulty), persistent nasal discharge (rhinorrhea), sinus infection, and loss of the sense of smell (anosmia) for a prolonged duration.

Tympanoplasty

People from all age groups can get affected by ear disorders and hearing impairment problems. In the United States, a survey revealed that under the age of 65, over 60 per cent of the population suffers from problems related to hearing loss. However, almost 25 per cent of people aged above 65 experience a significant loss of hearing. Thankfully, different types of ENT surgeries are available to treat problems related to the ear.

Most often, people are diagnosed with problems related to the eardrum, or tympanum, and the infection in the cells of the mastoid bone. The tympanum is the thin membranous structure present between the outer and the middle ear. It vibrates when sound waves hit on it and this enables us to hear.

A repair surgery called tympanoplasty is required to treat a perforation or hole in the eardrum. The middle ear is sterile but due to rupture of the eardrum, an infection can also occur. It may also be required for repairing of tiny bones present behind the eardrum or ossicles in the mastoid bone. This repair is known as mastoidectomy.

Tympanoplasty and mastoidectomy are therefore conducted together in many cases. This procedure is known as tympano-mastoidectomy.

Causes of Hearing Loss

There are several reasons that may cause loss of hearing, including the following:

  • Birth defect

  • An ear infection that has grown very severe and left untreated for long

  • The injury suffered by the ear

  • Ear subjected to excessive levels of noise

  • Hearing loss as a result of age

  • Other reasons

Symptoms of Hole in Eardrum

Some of the common symptoms of a puncture in eardrum include the following:

  • Sharp pain in the ear that disappears abruptly

  • Excessive pressure, which will suddenly disappear with the rupture and pus formation in the ear

  • Loss of hearing

  • Dizziness

Types of Tympanoplasty

Type 1 tympanoplasty or myringoplasty is the surgery that ensures restoration of the eardrum that got perforated with drafting

Type II tympanoplasty addresses membrane perforations with erosion in the bone malleus. Grafting is done on the incus bone or in the remains of the malleus.

Type III tympanoplasty is meant for destruction of two ossicles and intact and mobile stapes bone. A graft is placed on the stapes and it provides protection for the total assembly.

Type IV tympanoplasty is useful for cases of ossicular destruction, which has all or part of the arch of stapes included. A graft is placed around the mobile stapes footplate

Type V tympanoplasty is useful when the footplate of the stapes bone is fixed. 

For treating Cholesteatoma, tympanoplasty can be combined with stapedectomy and mastoidectomy and in many cases, a second operation is required to ensure the infection is totally eradicated.
