The predictive value of eustachian tube function (measured with sonotubometry) in the successful outcome of myringoplasty.

Abstract

Sonotubometry, as a technique for assessing Eustachian tube function, does not rely on an intact tympanic membrane. This device has been used to study 25 patients having myringoplasty who all had preoperative testing and post-operative testing at 4 months. The overall success rate for grafting was 76%.
