Abstract

Objective:       To develop a simple, portable, inexpensive model for otolaryngology trainees to practice on and develop skills required for myringotomy and tympanostomy tube insertion.

Materials and Methods:       Recycled plastic egg crate, a 3-cc plastic syringe, micropore™ tape and modeling clay were used to create a model to practice myringotomy and tympanostomy tube insertion utilizing tubes fashioned from a recycled 18 guage intravenous catheter.

Result:            The model myringotomy practice set is an inexpensive, simple do-it-yourself device made of locally available, mostly recycled materials.

 

Key words:  myringotomy practice set, myringotomy, middle ear ventilation, tympanostomy, tympanostomy tube insertion, instrumentation
