The tubes are very small and are hollow. These are made of soft plastic. In most cases these look like bobbins in sewing machines

The procedure of ear Tube Surgery is a pretty simple one and is a very commonly conducted operation. The surgeon first makes a small incision in the eardrum. First the fluid present in the middle ear is removed.

A small tube, containing a small notch on both of its ends is slipped via the hole made initially. The Tube resembles like this (][). This tube, inserted during the ear Tube Surgery will allow air inside the middle ear space

The pressure-equalization tube placed during the ear Tube Surgery provides an Eustachian tube which allows the fluid and bacteria to flow out and will also prevent the fluid build up.

Draining and preventing the fluid can help the patient to regain normal hearing. The tubes that are placed during the ear Tube Surgery do not cause long-term damage to the ears or hearing loss.

The ear Tube Surgery procedure is a well tested one and is in use in a widespread manner since mid 50s, and is extremely safe.

There is a possibility that the child might even get frightened while hearing normal noises, as they might now seem loud. This problem will vanish as the child gets used to hearing the normal sounds over a period of time.
