Aim of this study was to evaluate the role of rigid endoscope in the management of dry central perforation of the tympanic membrane and to compare the results of endoscopic myringoplasty with that of conventional myringoplasty using microscope. In endoscopic group there was 90% graft uptake rate as compared to 85% in microscopic group. The results of endoscopic myringoplasty are comparable to the conventional myringoplasty done under operating microscope and there is no significant difference between the gain in A-B gap in either group
