Intratympanic Drug Treatments
Intratympanic drug treatment is an injection of medicine into the middle ear to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Hearing loss
Your physician will numb your eardrum with medication, then inject a needle through the numbed portion and forward it to the round window. This is a membrane in the middle ear that leads to the cochlea. While you remain completely still, the medication will be absorbed into the inner ear.
