10 Cartilage Palisade Tympanoplasty The cartilage for tympanic membrane reconstruction was obtained from the cymba when the incision was retroauricular or from the tragus when the approach was endaural. Autologous incus or malleus heads were used for ossicular chain reconstruction as a first choice. The Ceravital prosthesis (n = 14) was used initially, but mainly the Ionos TORP (total ossicular replacement prosthesis) and PORP (partial ossicular replacement prosthesis) (n = 292) were used for ossicular reconstruction when the malleus or the incus was not available.

On the other hand, it reduces the possibility of bending being observed in the cartilage plates. Surgical Technique In our series of patients, cholesteatomas were operated on as a single-stage procedure from a retroauricular approach, following the extension of the cholesteatoma in an anterior-posterior procedure. Therefore, the selection criterion for canal wall up (CWU) or CWD depended mainly on the extension of the cholesteatoma. Atticotomies or minor antrotomies were closed with cartilage grafts in contact with the preserved canal.

The surgeon then has his material in his surgical field and can select the cartilage palisade that may fit best. Cartilage islands with overlapping perichondrium are good material for closing perforations of the posterior part of the tympanic membrane. e. titanium prostheses or others, to prevent protrusion or extrusion. 43 44 Chapter 10 10 Cartilage Palisade Tympanoplasty Manuel Bernal-Sprekelsen This chapter illustrates the ideas of the author on the use of cartilage in tympanoplasty based on the evaluation of a series of patients operated on with the palisade technique.
