Fresh tympanic membrane perforations heal without significant loss of strength.

Abstract

HYPOTHESIS The mechanical and structural properties of the tympanic membrane change after a perforation has healed. BACKGROUND In previous studies, efforts have been made to enhance the healing process of tympanic membrane perforations. The strength of the healed perforation has been tested with moiré interferometry in gerbils, but in no other species… (More)
