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.
