Granular myringitis (GM) is a troublesome disease with a high incidence of recurrence and relapse. CO2 laser vaporisation and trichloroacetic acid (TAA) have been applied in treating several otological diseases, both with favorable therapeutic efficacy.
However, long-term therapeutic efficacy of both CO2 laser vaporisation and TAA cauterisation against GM have not yet been evaluated. We aimed to investigate the therapeutic potential of CO2 laser vaporisation and TAA cauterisation in GM management.
A total of 88 GM patients who failed therapy with boric acid, alcohol, and glycerin ear drop (BAAG) otic solution between July 2009 and January 2018 were included.
Participants were randomly assigned to receive CO2 laser vaporisation (n = 39) or TAA cauterisation (n = 49).
