Perforated Eardrum (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Some large holes or non-healing small holes require surgery.
Surgical procedures are performed with a general anesthetic. Most people go home from the hospital or clinic on the same day.
Some causes of ruptured eardrums cannot be prevented or avoided. A little caution can lower the risk.
