Post Auricular Approach

A post auricular incision is used to provide exposure to the ear canal and eardrum for surgical closure of an eardrum perforation.  This approach is especially helpful in anterior perforations, since it gives better surgical visualization of the anterior eardrum.  Temporalis Fascia can also be harvested through this incision.
