In the June 2000 issue of the ARCHIVES, Gnuechtel et al1 present late effects of topical anesthetics on the healing of guinea pig tympanic membranes (TMs) after myringotomy. The conclusion is that no significant differences can be detected between the various anesthetics 6 months after application and myringotomy. These results are very much consistent with those documented earlier after application of local anesthetics without myringotomy.2
