The different graft materials used for tympanoplasty are temporalis
fascia, cartilage, perichondrium, vein, fat, dura mater, and periosteum etc.3,5 Temporalis
fascia is the most preferable graft material used by surgeon with success rate of 93-97% in primary tympanoplasties.
Disease clearance and facial nerve decompression was performed around 5mm on both sides of the exposed ends, and temporalis
fascia graft was used to cover the cavity wall.
These include temporalis
fascia, skin, periostea, perichondrium, dura mater, cartilage, vein, and fat.
A few weeks later, he performed an orthodromic temporalis
Meatoplasty was performed with a split-thickness skin graft on the denuded anterior EAC bony wall and a temporalis
muscle fascia graft on the tympanic membrane and mastoid bone.
All procedures were performed using an endaural incision for both temporalis
fascia graft and tragal cartilage graft harvesting.
In first stage the patient was admitted to our clinic for an orthodromic temporalis
Overall cartilage had the better closure rates (93.8%) when compared to temporalis
fascia (TF) (82.4%) as a graft material, however, with the numbers in the review, it was not shown to be statistically significant (p-value > 0.05).
The deep belly of the temporalis
muscle: an anatomical, histological and MRI study.
Multiple studies have shown that botulinum toxin injections into the masseter and temporalis
muscles result in relaxation of the muscles and improvement of bruxism and the pain associated with chronic clenching and grinding.
On the other hand, during palpation on temporalis
muscles (P=0.235), TMD associated with bruxism group felt more pain than the TMD group.
