To investigate the more ideal graft for optimal repair of tympanic membrane perforation, we examined the use of septal perichondrium in myringoplasty. Twenty-five patients with ages ranging between 18 and 54 were included in this study. All had a persistent, symptomatic tympanic membrane perforation, and nasal obstruction. All patients were scheduled for myringoplasty by a transmeatal approach in combination with septoplasty under general anaesthesia. Twenty-three patients had intact graft material and had more than 5 dB HL improvement in conductive hearing thresholds at least three frequencies in the follow up period. An overall success rate of 92 and 92% was recorded in terms of hearing improvement and perforation closure, respectively. Nasal septal perichondrium is easily accessible, cost-effective, time saving, sufficiently large, and patient friendly as a graft material in myringoplasty and has a good chance of postoperative survival.
