Evaluation of Eustachian Tube Function in Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media in Relation to Surgical Treatment Results
This was a two-year prospective research that looked at the Eustachian tube patency and surgical prognosis in individuals with Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (tubo tympanic type). This is done to evaluate the surgical result of CSOM in both normal and dysfunctional Eustachian tube function, as well as to view the end result of myringoplasty compares to Eustachian tube function in CSOM. Tympanogram and forced inflation test were used to evaluate the ETF. Patients are divided into two groups based on their ear findings: Group 1: A successful graft will be one that has strong middle ear function. Group-2: Graft rejection or perforation as a result of otitis media will be classified as failure. The data was tabulated using the Chi-square test and the Fisher Exact Test. The statistical significance level was set at (P=0.05). The findings were analysed using SPSS version 17 and Microsoft Excel 2007.
