    Quality Assessment of Tympanoplasty by Means of Endoscopic Optical Coherence Tomography

    Introduction: The endoscopic optical coherence tomography (eOCT) allows the direct, contactless representation and evaluation of the morphology and oscillation behaviour of the tympanic membrane and adjoining tympanic cavity content. After further development of the measuring technology, the eOCT will be able to be used in vivo for the assessment of tympanoplasty results. Materials and Methods: The eOCT was applied to 10 patients after a tympanoplasty with an intact ossicular chain and to 10 patients after a Type III tympanoplasty. The measurement data of the morphology – especially the thickness – and oscillation behaviour of the tympanic membrane and the prosthesis coupling to ...
