Learning Objectives: To evaluate the anatomical and audiological outcomes of transcanal endoscopic tympanoplasty with patient who has smoking habbit, and to those who do not.

Smoking does not influence the take rate of transcanal endoscopic tympanoplasty.

Objective: This study is aimed to evaluate the anatomical and audiological outcomes of transcanal endoscopic tympanoplasty with patient who has smoking habbit, and to those who do not.

Material and method: We had retrospectively reviewed the patients who had tympanic membrane perforation and underwent transcanal endoscopic tympanoplasty in Chang-Gung Memorial Hospital. After the surgery, the follow-up reperforation rate and audiologic test will be used to evaluate the take rate of the surgery between smoking and non-smoking group. All calculation were performed with a commercial statistical software package(SPSS 12.0 for windows).

Results: The result showed the take rate of transcanal endoscopic tympanoplasty between smoking and non-smoking group was 89% and 86% respectively.

Conclusion: It seems that smoking maybe an important factor to the patient with otitis media. However, it may not influence the outcome of take rate post-operatively. We will present our data and discuss on the conference.
