Introduction: Tympanoplasty is one of the commonly performed surgical treatments for chronic otitis media (COM). Graft used in tympanoplasty is temporalis fascia which is placed at the perforation site but usually without any securing agent like sutures, etc., This can lead to various problems such as medialization or lateralization of the graft (graft displacement) or anterior blunting, which affects the hearing outcome of tympanoplasty. Aim: The aim of this study is to study the role of in house autologous tissue glue in tympanoplasty as a graft-securing agent. Materials and Methods: One hundred cases of COM were divided into two groups of fifty cases each. In Group I, tympanoplasty was done without using tissue glue, whereas in Group II, tympanoplasty was done using in house autologous tissue glue as the graft securing agent, and the results were analyzed. Results: Graft uptake rate in Group I was 84% and in Group II was 92%. Five cases of anterior blunting and three cases of graft medialization were recorded in Group I, whereas there was only one case of anterior blunting in Group II with no graft displacement. Conclusion: Autologous in house tissue glue can be used as a graft-securing agent in tympanoplasty.
