J Med Sci May ;23(4):209-12.

Objectives: To determine the outcome of myringoplasty in terms of graft success rate in patients with chronic otitis media. Material and Methods: This study was conducted in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Khyber Teaching Hospital Peshawar. Study design was cross-sectional and descriptive. Duration of the study was 6 months. Sample size was 113 cases, using graft take rate of 75%, 95% confidence level, and 8% margin of error under WHO software for sample size determination. More over consecutive (non-probability sampling) was used for sample collection. Results: In this study 2% patients were <20 years, 60% patients were in age ranged 21-30 years, 28% patients were in age ranged 31-40 years, 10% patients were in age ranged 41-50 years. Mean age was 29 years with standard deviation ± 1.62. Thirty eight percent patients were male and 62% patients were female. Eighty six percent patients had taken graft while 14% patients didn’t had taken graft. Conclusion: Myringoplasty is a safe and effective surgical procedure in achieving intact tympanic membrane and to improve the hearing loss. We achieved anatomical (88.6%) and functional success (86%) comparable to those in the literature.
