Since the beginning of modern tympanoplasty techniques in the 1950s, according to Moritz, Zöllner and Wullstein, attention has been recently more focused on hearing restoration techniques. 2 Materials for Reconstruction of the Tympanic Membrane Many materials have been suggested for tympanic membrane reconstruction. Three tissues of autogenous origin are used today: temporal fascia (likely the material most favoured by surgeons all over the globe), perichondrium and cartilage .
The favoured technique is a canal-wall-down technique [66,67], in which the cholesteatoma can be traced from its origin in the middle ear and tracked into the antrum and mastoid.
