Abstract

The canal wall down procedure is the most commonly used modality of treatment for an "unsafe" ear. Necessity of a regular follow up and a discharging cavity is the main problem associated with this procedure. The presence of a potential space as an "inferior recess" in the tip region of the mastoid cavity has been implicated as a cause for collection of debris and subsequent discharge. This retrospective study compares the post-operative mastoid cavity problem in 20 cases each with obliteration of this "inferior recess" (test group) and without obliteration (control group). The test group was found to have very low incidence of post-operative otorrhoea and also early healing of the cavity.
