Abstract A closed tympanomastoidectomy with subsequent staged surgical procedures leading to the excision of cholesteatoma was validated as described. All elements of staging with a 10-year experience of 354 patients are covered according to categories of child (0 to 9 years), adolescent (10 to 15 years), and adult. The child differed from the adolescent and adult in the following manner: more recurring cholesteatomas, greater ossicular necrosis, poorer hearing results, less aggressive residual cholesteatoma, and significantly poorer results with pars flaccida cholesteatoma than pars tensa cholesteatoma. After the end stage, 90\% of the cases remained closed, with acceptable hearing in 60\% of the patients.
