Myringoplasty is a procedure to repair a perforation (hole) in the eardrum and is also known as Type 1 tympanoplasty. This procedure is used in the treatment of middle ear infection. Local anaesthesia will be given and graft is inserted through an incision made either in front, back or inside the ear canal. A dissolving sponge supports the graft. This surgical procedure can prevent recurrent ear infection and enhance hearing.
