The use of endoscope in ear surgery has revolutionised the treatment modality, Understanding the panoramic comfort and the manoeuvrability of the surgeon, it is indeed the next step in the art of ear surgery. With comparable healing and hearing results without using gelfoam in the middle ear, it allows the normal physiology to be restored in the post operative period much earlier. The result of the surgery also becomes evident in the second post operative week when the use of gelfoam in middle car is avoided.. With studies explaining that the use of gelfoam incites trauma to the middle ear structures and provokes new mflaminatory tissue reaction, the newer technique of avoiding gelfoam in the middle ear holds its place better than the former. This would become the technique of preference while operating in ear with unfavourable middle ear mucosal status_ Also, considering the ease and portability of endoscopes this surgical modality becomes an accessible option to previously inaccessible areas of our country without compromising the outcome of the surgery thereby achieving the goals of National Programme for Prevention and Control of Deafness(NPPCD) This study would lead the way for more elaborate research in the future which would highlight the surgical techniques that is much more anatomical and most importantly physiological.
