Abstract

Objective:

To study the clinical effect of lens cleaning paper patching on traumatic eardrum perforations.

Methods:

A total of 122 patients were divided into 2 groups, of which 56 patients were treated with lens cleaning paper patching and 66 acted as controls. The closure rate and healing time were compared between the two groups.

Results:

The healing rate of small perforations was 96.4 per cent (27 out of 28) in the patching group and 90 per cent (27 out of 30) in the control group. The difference was not statistically significant (p > 0.05). The healing rate of large perforations was 89.3 per cent (25 out of 28) and 80.6 per cent (29 out of 36) in the two groups, respectively. The difference was statistically significant (p < 0.05). The healing time of large perforations was shorter in the patching group than in the control group (p < 0.01).

Conclusion:

Patching with lens cleaning paper under an endoscope can accelerate the closure of large traumatic eardrum perforations.
