• Despite the overall high success rate of myringoplasty, the long-term results in ears with preoperative dysfunction of the Eustachian tube and with a small mastoid air cell system are disappointing. In this communication, we report an 83% healing rate after myringoplasty that included mastoidectomy with posterior and anterior tympanotomy in a selected group of patients with poor tubal function and small mastoids.
