Tympanoplasty is a common procedure performed by general otolaryngologists and subspecialists alike. Frequently performed as an elective, outpatient procedure, surgical technique is variable and dictated by a combination of patient characteristics, physical exam findings, as well as surgeon preference and experience. Using expert surgical videos, this in-depth eCourse will review four tympanoplasty procedures: Underlay, Lateral Graft, Cartilage and Endoscopic. It should be noted that this course focuses entirely on type 1 tympanoplasty techniques and, as such, will not include ossiculoplasty, mastoidectomy or cholesteatoma surgery.

This course was developed by members of the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) - Otology and Neurotology Education Committee and the American Neurotology Society (ANS).
