The tympanic membrane is a part of the conductive hearing mechanism, which separates the ear canal from the middle ear cavity. Tympanic Membrane Perforation (TMP) may result from infection (acute or chronic), trauma or post medical procedure’s complications.
Perforations can be temporary or persistent while effect varies with size and location in the tympanic membrane. Clinical manifestation: ear pain, chronic infection, vertigo, cholesteatoma and conductive hearing loss.
The traditional treatment for Tympanic Membrane Perforation is a surgery called Tympanoplasty
Tymcure’s solution will allow treatment for patients with TMP without middle ear cavity pathology. Among patients suitable for Tymcure are children (over 3 years old), patients not suitable to surgery due to medical condition, refuse surgery or suffering from traumatic perforations.
There is a clear unmet need for a minimally invasive solution to treat TMP with high levels of safety and efficacy, that can be performed by otorhinolaryngology surgeon in ambulatory/outpatient clinic.
