Abstract
Transtympanic endoscopy provides a unique opportunity to view, undisturbed, the contents of the middle ear. Flexible and rigid endoscopes with diameters of 2 mm and smaller are now available with adequate resolution to perform exploration of the middle ear. Endoscopes can be introduced through a myringotomy or an existing perforation in the tympanic membrane to examine the middle ear in the office setting, thus reducing the need for exploratory surgery.
