  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Tympanic mirror is very useful in otomicrosur-gery, however, not yet popular. The authors introduced four kinds of tympanic mirrors whichare now commercially available. Their merits and demerits were compared with those of tympanic endoscopes. The mirror is cheap and cableless. Its light depends on that of microscope. If it gets fog-ged, it can be clean by air stream produced by suction tube tip near the mirror. The disadvantages of the mirror are that the view is reversed and the endoscopes are small in diameter. The forcep-type with changable angle of mirror was considered to be best.
