Purpose While the use of cartilage graft for revision tympanoplasty is quite common, the data on the revision of cartilage tympanoplasty are limited. Our study aims to present the results of our patients who underwent endoscopic butterfly inlay myringoplasty for the revision of cartilage tympanoplasty. Methods Demographic data, ear sides, perforation locations, graft success rates and hearing results of the patients who underwent endoscopic butterfly inlay myringoplasty for revision of cartilage tympanoplasty between Sep 2017 and Jan 2020 were evaluated. Results A total of 17 patients with 7 (41%) females and 10 (59%) males were included in our study. Eight of the ears (47%) were right and nine (53%) were left. Perforation locations included ten (59%) anterior, six (35%) inferior, and one (6%) posterior. The graft success rate of our study was 100%. No changes were observed in post-operative air conduction, bone conduction and air-bone gap values compared to the pre-operative period (p > 0.05). Conclusions Endoscopic butterfly inlay myringoplasty for the revision of cartilage tympanoplasty is considered to be a safe surgical technique with satisfactory anatomical and hearing results.
