MATERIALS and METHODS: We analyzed 137 tympanoplasties for chronic perforated otitis media in 133 patients.
Out of 40 cases, 22(55%) tympanoplasties were performed on right ear and 18(45%) on left ear.
In a review of records of children who had tympanoplasties between 1991 and 2000 to assess factors that might impact the long-term prognosis, neither the surgical technique, the direction of approaching the ear, the type of graft used, nor the child's medical record had a significant association with long-term success of tympanoplasties.
