Ventilation tubes Ventilation tubes

An ear ventilation tube is a very small tube that’s placed in the eardrum. It’s also called a myringotomy tube, tympanostomy tube. Vent tubes let fluid trapped behind the eardrum drain, which helps prevent ear infections. The operation to insert a vent tube is very safe, simple, and quick. The ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist or ear specialist makes a very small cut in the eardrum and puts a vent tube in one or both ears. The vent tubes cause no pain or hearing loss.
