Background: Transcanal endoscopic ear surgery has many advantages over conventional microscopic ear surgery and is used as adjunct to microscope or is used independently. Precise large visual field and angular vision has edge over the clumsy, expensive, peeping tubular vision of microscopes. Moreover, it is a better teaching methodology for the undergraduates and postgraduates. Our study comprised of twenty-five patients who had safe ear and underwent transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES). Methods: This prospective study was carried out between October 2014 to December 2015 at Hayaat hospital, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India and Hind Institute of Medical Sciences, Safedabad, Barabanki. Twenty-five patients of age group more than fifteen years were selected. All the patients selected had dry and safe type of chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM). Results: Of the twenty five people ten were females and fifteen males in the ratio of 2:3. All the patients selected had dry ear and safe type of chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM). All had conductive hearing loss of variable decibels but not greater than fifty-five decibels. Conclusions: Further research is needed in the field of operative TEES. We all need to discuss and more research work is needed to prove its genuinity and practicality.
