About Video

In this video, the technique of fat myringoplasty is demonstrated, which is very useful in patients who have a small central perforation of the tympanic membrane with a subclinical to mild conductive hearing loss, where inspection of the tympanic cavity is not required. Autologous fat harvested from the ear lobule is grafted via the endomeatal route. The edges of the perforation are freshened, a small piece of antibiotic-soaked gel foam is placed on the promontory, underlying the perforation, and the piece of fats is dumbelled into the perforation, supported by the gel foam. The remaining external auditory canal is then filled with antibiotic-soaked gel foam.
