Main Article Content
To compare the efficacy of underlay and overlay technique for myringoplasty among patients with perforated tympanic membrane in terms of improvement in air bone gap.
MATERIAL AND METHODS:
This study was performed in the department of ENT Hayatabad Medical Complex, Peshawar. All patients were randomly allocated in two groups. In group A patients, underlay technique was performed while in group B patients overlay technique was performed. Temporalis fascia was used for grafting in all cases. All procedures were performed under general anesthesia. All patients were followed at 3 months to determine the effectiveness in terms of improvement in air bone gap of at least 10db.
As per efficacy in both groups, in Group A, 70 (85.36%) patients showed effective results while in Group B, only 52 (63.41%) patients showed effective results. P Value = 0.001.
It was concluded in this study that patients in Group A (Underlay) showed effective results as compared to patients in Group B (Overlay).
