Dr.N. Srinivasulu, Dr.A. Sesha Prasad

Abstract


AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness of Endoscopic tympanoplasty compared to Microscopic tympanoplasty.
METHODS
TYPE OF STUDY: open-label (non-blinded) intervention study.
SOURCE OF SAMPLE: All patients seeking services from ENT specialty at Government General Hospital Kurnool, came with a
diagnosis of CSOM were recruited into the study.
INTERVENTION: A) MICROSCOPIC TYMPANOPLASTY B) ENDOSCOPIC TYMPANOPLASTY
SAMPLE SIZE: 30 (15 in the microscope group and 15 in the endoscope group).RESULTS: Pre and postoperative results were not
significant in both groups(p>0.05) but post operative airbone gap results improved in both groups than preoperative airbone gap
average operative time was significant statistically as group A (MT) 110 min and group B(ET) 132 minutes. P value
<0.05.complications between two groups was clinically significant but it is not statistically significant (p value >0.05).graft success
rate is same in both groups (80%). CONCLUSION: The telescopic, wide angle, magnified view of the endoscope overcomes the
disadvantages of the microscope. In our study, the outcomes of endoscopic tympanoplasty were equal to the outcomes of
microscopic tympanoplasty.
