Abstract

Introduction: The aim of the present study is to study cases of tympanosclerosis retro-prospectively in regards to their clinical presentation and also their surgical management.
 

Materials & Methods: 73 cases of tympanosclerosis were studied over a period of two years. Patients were also classified as those operated by the consultant surgeon and the resident surgeon.
 

Results: The surgical procedure commonly carried out was Type 1 Tympanoplasty, with no significant difference seen with partial or complete removal of tympanosclerotic plaques with regards to the graft uptake or the post operative hearing thresholds. A difference was observed in the number of complications in cases operated by the consultant surgeon as against the resident surgeon.
 

Conclusion: Though the symptoms of tympanosclerosis may not be a dramatic it does pose a significant dilemma especially to a novice otologist with regards to its complete resection.
