5 mm) cartilage shield graft has been compared with a temporalis fascia graft
in patients with inactive mucosal chronic otitis media (table 1).
Autologous cartilage grafts have been used with increasing frequency for tympanic membrane repair because of their potential for better outcomes compared with temporalis fascia grafts
A properly dried temporalis fascia graft
of appropriate size is introduced through the ear canal.
Use of the postauricular fascia graft
can produce predictable results in rhinoplasty patients requiring soft-tissue augmentation.
At this point, the tympanoplasty was completed with a temporalis fascia graft
The temporalis fascia graft
was placed by underlay technique and it was stabilised with gel foam in the middle ear and external auditory canal.
2) In the variation of type III tympanoplasty discussed here, the underlay fascia graft
is placed directly onto the stapes capitulum.
The Air-bone gap closure is greatest for temporalis fascia graft
than dura or autograft incus.
The tumor involved the middle fossa and posterior fossa dura, requiring dural resection and grafting with a rectus abdominus fascia graft
Temporalis fascia graft
was used in all the cases for myringoplasty and in all the cases underlay technique was followed.
Middle ear packing is often used to support the fascia graft
, and it sometimes contributes to hearing loss during the immediate postoperative period.
7) However, during the last decade, there has been a renewal of interest in the use of cartilage as an alternative to more traditionally used temporalis fascia graft
