Thank you very much for your interest in our article regarding the late effects of topical anesthetics on TM healing after myringotomy. We selected the guinea pig as our experimental model because it has been the "classic" model for such studies and because of its availability at that institution. We were not aware of your comparative work done in 1991. We appreciate your calling this to our attention.
