Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of postauricular incision (sulcus incision) during myringoplasty using conchal perichondrial graft with or without conchal cartilage on the ear protrusion. Patients and Methods: A prospective study was conducted on 243 patients who underwent myringoplasty using small postauricular sulcus incision. The distances from postauricular area to the lateral aspects of helical rim and ear lobule at three different levels and the maximum ear protrusion were measured pre- and post-operatively. Results: There were no statistically significant differences between the measures of the auricle position preoperatively and 2 weeks, 1 month, and 3 months postoperatively. Conclusion: There was no effect of the short postauricular sulcus incisions for myringoplasty on the ear position. It does not affect or annoy the glasses wearers with highly satisfactory cosmetic results without reported persistent complications.
