Tympanoplasty is one of the commonest operations done among ENT Surgical procedures nowadays. A total of 1188 Type-I Tympanoplasty and Myringoplasty were done at TheENT Centre, King Fahad Hospital, Jeddah, during tiie period, January 1990 to December 1994 by various surgeons starting from resident to consultant. A retrospective analysis of 950 cases, which were followed up for more than 3 months was done. The male to female ratio was 46:54 and the mean age being 23.5 years. Five Hundred three cases (53%) had subtotal perforations, 333 (35%) with large central perforations and 114 (12%) had small central perforations. All the ears were dry for at least one month preoperatively. The over all success rate was 741 cases (78%). The success rate of combined posterior-anterior flap technique was higher than the posterior flap alone. The average hearing gain was 20dB. The outcome of tympanoplasty is analysed in relation to the techniques, middle ear pathology, and reasons of failure.
