What is an Intratympanic Steroid Injection?
Behind the ear drum in the middle ear space is a structure called the round window. This is sealed with a membrane behind which are the fluids of the inner ear, vital for hearing and balance function. Injecting drugs through the ear drum to fill the middle ear allows diffusion of the medication across the round window membrane and into the cochlear.
When do we use an Intratympanic Steroid Injection?
Intratympanic Steroid Injection enables ear specialists to treat conditions that affect the inner ear such as Meniere’s Disease, sudden onset sensorineural hearing loss, autoimmune inner ear disease and others.
