Torn Eardrum if may form because of traumatic reasons or late & inadequate treatment of middle ear. Eardrum torn related to traumatic reasons (hit by a ball, pressure changes during flight or diving) generally recover between 2-3 weeks with the follow up.

But, longtime existing eardrum torn which are developed by an infection must be treated by a surgery. Muscle tunicle on the ear is removed by a special technique and eardrum is repaired by this piece of tunicle.
