New York/Stuttgart – Eardrum repair, called tympanoplasty, is a procedure to correct a tear in the eardrum (tympanic membrane). The use of cartilage in major reconstruction of the tympanic membrane has become increasingly recognized. Studies comparing cartilage to more traditional grafting materials have shown no difference in hearing post-operatively. Cartilage Tympanoplasty, published by Thieme, is the first of its kind in this field.
"I was astounded by Mirko Tos' ability to provide such a comprehensive treatise of techniques, from so many different surgeons, and explain them in a way that only an experienced ear surgeon could. I read this book from cover to cover and learned a great deal," states John Dornhoffer, MD, FACS, Professor of Otolaryngology and Director of Otology and Neurotology at the University of Arkansas, Littler Rock, Arkansas.
