The surgical procedure for placing tubes in the ears has become one of the most commonly performed operations of any kind. A tiny tube, with a collar on both ends, is slipped through a tiny incision in the eardrum. This pressure-equalization (PE) tube provides a temporary, extra eustachian tube to allow bacteria and fluid to drain from the middle ear.
