The graft was placed via an endaural
or postauricular incision.
The various surgical approaches to tympanoplasty include endomeatal (per meatal), endaural
, and postauricular routes.
In both groups, the external auditory canal was infiltrated with anesthetic (1% lidocaine), and in the microscopic group, an endaural
skin incision was made.

Surgical approaches were either transcanal or endaural
depending on the size of the external auditory meatus.
Similarly, with postaural approach, temporalis fascia graft can also be harvested with the same incision while in permeatal or endaural
approach, a separate incision is needed to take the same graft.
8 The recurrence risk of tympanic sinus disease through endaural
method was reported around 3.
Exposure for viewing these areas often requires wide drilling of mastoid either by retroauricular or endaural
Either a postaural (Wilde) incision or an endaural
(Lempert) incision was made to gain surgical access.
The patient underwent surgery through an endaural
The patient subsequently underwent complete excision of the sinus tract under general anesthesia, with a combination of endaural
and postauricular dissection.
Naim et al based their choice of procedure on the severity of the case; they recommended a transcanal or endaural
approach for a minimally invasive condition and a postauricular approach and canal-wall-down technique in cases of mastoid involvement.
