Tympanostomy Tubes (grommets)
Medasil Tympanostomy Tubes are available in a range of well-established designs to accommodate clinical preference and requirements and are manufactured from high quality fluoroplastic or silicone elastomer.
Tympanostomy tubes (or grommets) are used in the treatment of Otitis Media (Glue Ear) following a myringotomy procedure. The myringotomy incision enables pressure to equalise on either side of the tympanic membrane, restoring position and function to the eardrum, and also providing access for the drainage of excess fluid from the middle ear.
The grommet is designed to maintain patency of the aperture created by the myringotomy, for sufficient time to enable appropriate treatment to resolve the original obstruction in the eustachian tube.
