Original Investigations

Summary

Eighty-four ears which underwent tympanoplasty because of an atelectasis of the tympanic membrane were followed up. Thirty-six involved children (4–13 years old). On the average, 50–55 months of postoperative follow-up showed that atelectasis, once operated, shared the same pattern and prognosis in the children as in the adults.

Key words

Otitis media Tympanic membrane atelectasis
