Introduction: The purpose of this study was to evaluate hearing outcome using temporalis graft in Tympanoplasty Type I for CSOM using Post aural approach.
Method: It included 60 patients with chronic suppurative otitis media (tubotympanic type) requiring only tympanic membrane repair with no ossicular reconstruction. Patients were assessed after 3 & 6 months for graft take and hearing evaluation.
Result: In our study of 60 cases, AB Gap closure of 16.04 ± 6.40 dB & average air conduction improvement was 16.60 ± 5.76 dB after 6 months of surgery.
Conclusion: Myringoplasty using temporalis fascia as graft done by postaural approach is an easy technique which gives a good improvement in hearing.
