A chondroperichondrial cartilage graft was removed from the tragal cartilage via a transcartilaginous incision.
AIM & OBJECTIVES: The study aims to compare the results of temporalis fascia and tragal perichondrium with cartilage island graft for repair of small to moderate size perforation of tympanic membrane.
3) Given our patient's extensive pneumatization, relatively discrete focal posterior wall defect, and intact tympanic membrane, we chose to reconstruct the posterior wall with tragal cartilage.
Among the entire study population, the use of a shaved tragal cartilage graft over the prosthesis was associated with a significantly worse postoperative ABG (p = 0.
Temporalis Fascia, Tragal Cartilage, Tragal Perichondrium, and Fascia Lata in Underlay Tympanoplasty was undertaken to evaluate the postoperative Graft take-up and Hearing improvement.
Because many erosions are related to an atrophic or retracted tympanic membrane, use tragal cartilage, perichondrium, or vein to reinforce the posterosuperior quadrant of the tympanic membrane.
A small piece of tragal cartilage and perichondrium was harvested through an incision on the medial aspect of the tragus.
Other techniques have been described, from the use of tragal cartilage to composite allo-implants.
In the reconstructive step, we performed an overlay myringoplasty with autologous temporal fascia, a tragal cartilage scutumplasty, and an ossiculoplasty with placement of a total ossicular replacement prosthesis (TORP) between the footplate and the eardrum with cartilage interposition.
Ossicular reconstruction had been undertaken with placement of tragal cartilage on top of a titanium partial ossicular reconstruction prosthesis (PORP).
Inadequate drop volume and a lack of tragal pumping may also impede middle ear delivery.
