This medical illustration demonstrates a Myringotomy, where the eardrum is perforated to relieve pressure from infective material behind it (glue ear). A plastic 'grommet' may be inserted after to allow continued drainage.
Glue ear is particularly common in young children, and impacts their hearing. Impaired hearing as a child has knock on effects on speech and language development in the brain, and on their education. Therefore, this simple procedure can have a massive impact on a child's future.
