Abstract

Objective

Anteriorly located tympanic membrane perforations can negatively affect surgical success rates. This study aimed to present, using our case series results, endoscopic triple-C (composite chondroperichondrial clip) tympanoplasty as an alternative method in the repair of tympanic membrane anterior quadrant perforations.

Methods

This study included patients with a perforation sized greater than 3 mm, who had an anterior quadrant dominant perforation where the anterior portion could not be seen during microscopic examination; all underwent endoscopic triple-C tympanoplasty.

Results

Operating time was 30–79 minutes (mean, 46.6 minutes). The post-operative graft success rate at six months was 92 per cent (23 out of 25). Mean post-operative follow-up duration was 21.5 ± 7.3 months (range, 11–40 months), and no intratympanic cholesteatoma was observed.

Conclusion

Endoscopic triple-C tympanoplasty is a comfortable, minimally invasive alternative method to repair anterior tympanic membrane perforations. The graft success rate and the degree of recovery from hearing loss were in accordance with the literature. However, more reliable results may be obtained in a larger series with longer follow-up times.
