Video Otoscopy – Myringotomy

Video Otoscopy has many diagnostic and surgical uses in the ear.  Foreign bodies can be removed and the ear canal can be cleansed with graspers and a flush suction machine via a 5 French catheter.  If there is fluid behind the tympanic membrane that cannot be dissipated by use of antibiotics, the otoscope can aid in its removal.  Myringotomies are performed by passing a sharp catheter through the scope to penetrate the tympanic membrane.  A soft catheter can be inserted through the controlled puncture to remove fluid for bacterial culture and sensitivity and remove the fluid.  The incision will heal within 2 -3 weeks.


Video Otoscopy ear flush done under anesthesia.
