Step by step endoscopic dissection of the Middle Ear:

  • Endoscopic inspection of the EAC.
  • Outline the vascular strip.
  • Removal of canal skin along with the epithelial layer of TM.
  • Enlargement of the ear canal.
  • Elevation of the annulus up to 3 and 9 o’clock.
  • Separate the remnant of the TM from the malleus handle and umbo.
  • Take down the bony annulus posteriorly to gain full access to the facial recess and sinus tympani.
  • Take down any “inferior overhang” and enlarge the access to the inferior retrotympanum and hypotympanum, next inspect the hypotympanum.
  • Perform limited atticotomy with meticulous care.
  • Proceed with removing the whole scutum including the lateral incudo-mallear folds, and expose the whole incus along with the malleus head.
  • Mobilize the incus to expose the articular facet with malleus and stapes. Then, proceed with disarticulating the stapes and malleus from the incus.
  • Next, transect the neck of the malleus at a relatively superior level in order to preserve the anterior mallear ligament and the tensor tympani tendon.
  • Transect the tensor tympani tendon and remove the malleus handle.
  • Using a curette or a drill, if available, attempt to slowly remove the bony encasement of the facial nerve, starting with the horizontal segment and following the nerve proximally and distally into the first and second genus.
