Abstract

The insertion of a myringotomy tube is a common ENT procedure. Traditionally, this procedure is performed under otomicroscopic view. In this paper I describe a technique using rigid endoscopy with the Hopkins rod and a video monitor as a visual aid for the insertion of myringotomy tube in older children and adults. The technique is safe and effective; it allows demonstration of the entire tympanic membrane during surgery and also enables better teaching of the procedure than does the otomicroscope.
