Abstract

Myringoplasty is a common otological procedure indicated in mucosal chronic otitis media 4. It aims to close the tympanic membrane perforation to prevent recurrent otorrhea and create a sound-conducting mechanism in a well-aerated, mucosa-lined middle ear cleft, and maintain these achievements over time.The dilemma of the success of ear surgery in wet ear among otologists, encouraged us to compare the results of myringoplasty in both wet and dry ear. In this study the success rate of surgery was calculated by graft uptake and hearing gain. A combined procedure of cortical mastoidectomy with myringoplasty was done in cases with sclerosed mastoid to clear the infection in the  mastoid  and  to make the aditus patent.
