Description The use of Tympanoplasty as a remedy for minor perforations is a common trend these days. The technique is in use even from ancient time utilizing those day tools. Common criticism on this technique is that it bring disadvantages such as hospital stay, increased morbidity, and post-operative scar. Therefore, there was requirement to bring a more comprehensive technique. In this study, our objective is to assess the clinical and audiometric success rate of new tragal cartilage plug or butterfly technique tympanoplasty. The study is based on 30 patients who were in age category of 16 to 55 years of age. The results shows that out of 30 patients, 27 patients were based on graft taken up; while, the rest of the 3 patients showed residual perforation with an overall success rate of 90%. The anatomical success was assessed by otoscopy with graft well set in place. The functional success was analyzed by audiogram, which showed decrease in Air-Bone (A-B) gap in 25 patients (83.3%). Our conclusion is that the tympanoplasty method may be considered as an alternative treatment option for repair of tympanic membrane perforations.
