Definition of Tympanostomy tube

Tympanostomy tube: A small plastic tube inserted into the eardrum to keep the middle ear aerated for a prolonged period of time. These ventilating tubes usually remain in place for 6 months to several years. Eventually, most will move out of the eardrum (extrude) and fall out into the ear canal. Also called ear tubes.
