Temporalis fascia has long been regarded as the ideal graft material for tympanic membrane repair. However it often does not seem to withstand negative middle ear pressure in the post operative period. Tragal cartilage with perichondrium would appear to be a better graft material with good hearing outcome. It can be obtained easily with cosmetically acceptable incision. In the present study, we have compared the graft properties of temporalis fascia verses tragal cartilage perichondrium with respect to healing, hearing and rate of post operative retraction or reperforation...

A patient with a large congenital cholesteatoma of the left temporal bone is presented. The case is unique in that, although the cholestetoma invaded all three semicircular as well as the basal coil of the cochlea, the patient retained normal hearing. She had an almost complete left-sided facial paralysis, yet she retained sensori-neural hearing postoperatively, in spite of removal of the superior part of the labyrinth (semicircular canals and utricle). The possible mechanisms behind such an unusual event are discussed together with the possible function of the utriculo-endolymphatic valve...
