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. Its advantages are that it can be harvested through same post aural or endaural incision of tympanoplasty, available in sufficient amount, its basal metabolic rate and thickness have great resemblance with TM.5 However the drawbacks of fascia graft are high failure rate in atelectatic drum, retraction pocket, subtotal or total perforation and malfunctioning eustachian tube.
Temporalis fascia remains the most commonly used material for tympanic membrane reconstruction, with a success rate of 93% to 97% in primary tympanoplasties. However, the situation gets more complex, and failure rates are considered higher in cases of Eustachian tube dysfunction, retraction pocket, adhesive otitis media, and subtotal or total perforation.
We have compared the outcomes of primary tympanoplasties with revision cases regarding the type of the OC lesion.
The mean number of previous tympanoplasties was 1.18 (range: 1 to 3); perforation size was small in 14 (43.8%) ears, medium in 13 (40.6%) ears, and large in 5 (15.6%) ears, and included 2 total perforations.

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.
