UNLABELLED New developments on biomaterials are important in surgery. The behavior of a new membrane produced from sugarcane will be evaluated in the middle ear of rats. AIM This study analyzed the results from the interaction of the sugarcane-base biopolymer membrane in the middle ear of a rat. MATERIALS AND METHODS We ran an experimental, prospective,(More)
INTRODUCTION Several biomaterials can be used in ear surgery to pack the middle ear or support the graft. The absorbable gelatin sponge is the most widely used, but it may produce fibrosis and impair ventilation of the middle ear.
