A Comparative study of use of temporalis
fascia graft vs tragal perichondrium graft in tympanoplasty.
To salvage graft failures in cases of Tympanoplasty done using Temporalis
To date, the temporalis
fascia and perichondrium are still the grafting material mainstays in primary tympanoplasty, with a success rate ranging from 35 to 95%.
Outcomes following temporalis
tendon transfer in irradiated patients.
Is cartilage better than temporalis
muscle fascia in type I tympanoplasty?
During palpation on temporalis
muscles, significant difference was observed between pain in the TMD group and the TMD associated with bruxism group.
In comparison to temporalis
fascia the rigidity of cartilage has been considered as its positive feature leading good resistance to the retraction; however, it might adversely lead to a defective acoustic transferring system .
The aim of this study was to determine whether the electrical activity of temporalis
and masseter muscles in children with complete CLP and pain-related TMD differs from that observed in CLP individuals with no TMD.

In general, both masseter and temporalis
muscles are assessed in bruxism and treated with BoNT-A bilaterally.
The areas of pain reported are in the region of masseter, temporalis
, and lower border of the mandible near the molar area and in the ear or TMJ region [Table 1].
However, when purulent secretion extends to the highly pneumatized root of the zygomatic process, the pneumatized bone can be eroded and purulent secretion can accumulate within the temporalis
fossa once there is penetration through the periosteum.
