Tympanosclerosis (TS) is a common sequelae of chronic otitis media found in all age groups. Over a period of 3 years, out of 520 surgical cases, 68 (13%) were found to have varying amounts of Tympanosclerotic plaques (TSP) warranting surgical removal. 60% had extension of TSP over the ossicular chain thus affecting its mobility. Deliberate surgical removal of TSP was undertaken for hearing improvement.Systematic and meticulous removal of TSP rather than en-bloc removal has been found to improve the hearing as close to as in, non-tympanosclerotic ear surgery.
