Transcanal myringoplasty has the advantages of demanding lower operative time and minimal external incisions. It can be performed using the microscopic or endoscopic approach. In the last decade, the use of endoscopes in ear surgery has increased significantly. This technique may allow "around the corner" visualization of small recesses, through narrow spaces, without the aid of canalplasty in unfavorable ear canals. To describe a case series of transcanal endoscopic myringoplasty performed in a university service. The characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of this technique are also discussed.

The role of the rigid endoscope has been evaluated in the management of 36 cases with dry central perforation of the tympanic membrane. The graft take rate was The use of the rigid endoscope in the management of dry central perforation of the drum represented a significant advance in middle ear surgery.

It is used, in correlation with manometry, to evaluate the tubal function before ear surgery and to treat hidden causes of tubal obstruction. It replaces the operating microscope in observation and surgery of the tympanic membrane perforation. It overcomes anatomical variations that hamper access to the entire tympanic membrane during ear surgery.

Endoscopic Transcanal Myringoplasty for Anterior Perforations of the Tympanic Membrane

Metrics details. Myringoplasty can be technically difficult in the pediatric patients due to the narrowness of the external auditory canal and the generally small size of the ear. Moreover, temporalis fascia grafts and myringoplasties for anterior perforations are more likely to fail in children. Surgical management of anterior perforations requires total exposure of the anterior angle however a microscope may fail to provide a view of the anterior edge in most of perforations.

We'd like to understand how you use our websites in order to improve them. Register your interest. Aim of this study was to evaluate the role of rigid endoscope in the management of dry central perforation of the tympanic membrane and to compare the results of endoscopic myringoplasty with that of conventional myringoplasty using microscope. The results of endoscopic myringoplasty are comparable to the conventional myringoplasty done under operating microscope and there is no significant difference between the gain in A-B gap in either group.
