Background- Although temporalis fascia is the commonly used graft material for tympanic membrane reconstruction, cartilage?perichondrium graft is the material of choice for the reconstruction of the atelectatic tympanic membrane, recurrent perforations, subtotal and total perforations. Stiffness of cartilage graft is always the concern for the audiological outcome of the surgery. In our study, we used temporalis fascia and the cartilage graft of different thickness and have done the honest efforts to find out the ideal graft that will form a perfect balance between the stability and the acoustic sensitivity of the tympanic membrane.
