Endoscopic tympanoplasty in the treatment of chronic otitis media: our experience.

Panetti, G. et al. (2017) Acta Oto-Laryngologica. 137(3) pp. 225-228.

Objectives: To investigate the benefits that the systematic use of endoscopy in middle ear surgery has made.

Conclusion: The endoscopy ensures good surgical exposure of hidden areas, frequently sites of residual cholesteatoma. Also, the minimally invasive endoscopic approach is more respectful of anatomy and functionality of the middle ear, restoring and preserving mastoid mucosa, with faster healing time.
