Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome of myringoplasty performed by residents in a training program in a tertiary referral hospital in Saudi Arabia, and to compare the results with other published reports in the literature. 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. Results: Closure of perforation was achieved in 87.9% of the ears and 81.5 % of patients achieved postoperative air bone gap closure to <20 dB. Conclusion: The success rate of myringoplasty performed by residents in our centre is comparable to other published reports.
