Abstract

In the last few years, cartilage has been the preferred material for reconstruction of the tympanic membrane, particularly in the case of allergy, re-perforation, or total or subtotal perforation. The mechanical characteristics of cartilage offer the advantage of high resistance to retraction and re-perforation. This paper describes two original techniques which reduce cartilage tympanoplasty surgery time, involving a 0.3 mm thick cartilage- perichondrium composite graft to repair the tympanic membrane.
