OBJECTIVES We sought to compare the long-term functional results of tympanic membrane reconstruction with temporalis fascia and cartilage shield grafting. METHODS This study includes 113 patients who had tympanoplasty type I tympanic membrane reconstruction between 1997 and 2007, 47 with tragal cartilage and 66 with temporalis fascia. Fourteen patients in the cartilage group and 9 patients in the temporalis fascia group also had mastoidectomy. The average follow-up was 3.2 years. The hearing… CONTINUE READING
