Background: The tympanic perforation is a lesion very marked during a otologic affection; this organic entity can include a enormous auditive loss. The tympanoplasty constitutes a therapeutic option to improve this auditive failure. The objective of our descriptive retrospective study was to evaluate the auditive profit after a tympanoplasty. This study included all patients operated of a tympanoplasty to realize in the service Otorhinolaryngology of the TPLA of Madagascar over one 12 months period.
Results: A population of 50 patients was listed with a 32 years Middle Age and a sex-ratio with 0,5. Hearing loss was the most frequent reason for consultation. The central tympanic perforation of intermediate size dominates the organic clinical presentation. The tympanoplasty standard I to occupy the majority part of practiced intervention. The hearing improvement was revealed in 56% of the cases with an average auditive profit of 17,07 dB.
Conclusion: The tympanoplasty is a otologic surgery making it possible to improve the hearing acuteness. The average hearing profit of 17,07 dB into after operation is obtained at more half of our patients. The favorable result is especially detected on the tympanoplasty without rebuilding of the ossicles but in the event of signs of functional discomfort, patients are referred to a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department.
