Had 4 sets of tubes in ears! L. Ear drum is sucked in! Dr. Recommended "permanent" t-tube surgery". Is a larger incision needed for permanent tube?
Similar surgery. The t tube is the only significant variable as the incision is nearly identical. The tube is longer and after insertion the top forms a t which anchors the tube in a stronger way and resists expulsion common to the simple grommets.
Tubes. No , no larger incision is needed.
T-Tube. Hello, when i place a t-tube, i make a standard incision and then i fold the flanges together, insert the tip of the alligator forcepts thru the incision and open. The flanges release below the tm. I then rotate the tube if needed and finally i adjust with a straight pick.
