Abstract:

The results after simultaneous bilateral fat graft myringoplasties in children have not been previously reported in the literature. We report on 28 children who underwent bilateral fat graft myringoplasties as outpatient procedures under general anesthesia. The success rate was 91% at final follow-up, with only 16% of children requiring insertion of pressure-equalizing (PE) tubes following surgery. No complications were documented. We conclude that bilateral fat graft myringoplasties are safe to perform, with an excellent success rate, and are suitable as outpatient procedures.
