Endoscopic Tympanoplasty: Single Versus Double Flap Technique

2019-04-25 15:24:32 | BioPortfolio


Aim of this study is to compare results of double and single flap techniques for tympanoplasty in chronic suppurative otitis media patients. Inclusion criteria include total or subtotal tympanic membrane perforations with limited anterior remnant and should be dry for at least 3 months. Patients with persistent discharge, cholesteatoma, ossicular affection or those with recurrent perforations after previous myringoplasty were excluded. Also, patients with uncontrolled diabetes, chronic liver and kidney diseases and immuno-compromised patients are not included in this study. Patients are divided into two groups, endoscopic double flap group and endoscopic single flap group. Healing and hearing outcomes were evaluated 3 months postoperative. Also, post-operative pain scores and complications were assessed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A temporary or persistent opening in the eardrum (TYMPANIC MEMBRANE). Clinical signs depend on the size, location, and associated pathological condition.

Surgical reconstruction of the hearing mechanism of the middle ear, with restoration of the drum membrane to protect the round window from sound pressure, and establishment of ossicular continuity between the tympanic membrane and the oval window. (Dorland, 28th ed.)

A mobile chain of three small bones (INCUS; MALLEUS; STAPES) in the TYMPANIC CAVITY between the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and the oval window on the wall of INNER EAR. Sound waves are converted to vibration by the tympanic membrane then transmitted via these ear ossicles to the inner ear.

An oval semitransparent membrane separating the external EAR CANAL from the tympanic cavity (EAR, MIDDLE). It contains three layers: the skin of the external ear canal; the core of radially and circularly arranged collagen fibers; and the MUCOSA of the middle ear.

The space and structures directly internal to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and external to the inner ear (LABYRINTH). Its major components include the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE that connects the cavity of middle ear (tympanic cavity) to the upper part of the throat.
