A perforated or ruptured eardrum is a hole or a tear in the tympanic membrane, the thin film between your middle and outer ear. It can be caused by an ear infection, a change in pressure during flight, trauma to the ear, or exposure to a very loud noise.
Perforation of the eardrum can result in recurrent ear infections along with bloody, clear or pus-like discharge. Dizziness and hearing loss is also common.
The tear in the eardrum can be repaired during a surgical procedure known as myringoplasty or tympanoplasty. During this operation, a piece of tissue, taken from behind the ear, is grafted to the drum to repair the hole.
Mr Ali is highly experienced at identifying eardrum perforation as well as carrying out successful myringoplasty or tympanoplasty procedures.
