Design: A retrospective chart review. Setting: King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Patients & Methods: A retrospective chart review of 356 patients who underwent myringoplasty as a primary surgery between January 2002 and December 2007. Cases involving cholesteatoma, retraction pocket or ossicular chain reconstructions were excluded. Dry ear and intact tympanic membrane were considered to be successful outcome.
