Surgical Pictures of Tympanoplasty

Surgical Picture of Tympanoplasty, left ear.
The temporalis fascia graft has been placed under (medial to) the tympanic membrane. This is called "underlay technique", as opposed to  the "overlay technique", in which the fascia is placed over the drumhead (lateral).
Posterior left tympanic membrane perforation.
The promontory , the manubrium of the malleus and the incudo-stapedial joint are visible through this dry tympanic membrane perforation.
