In this chapter, we describe surgical steps to perform endoscopic tympanoplasty via medial or lateral graft approaches. Virtually all pathologies of the tympanic membrane, from small perforations to total drum replacement can be addressed endoscopically. We will detail indications for surgery, selection of approach, discuss operative steps, and address challenges of endoscopic tympanoplasty.
