Original Title: Cirugía endoscópica en pacientes con patología del oído medio
Authors' recommendations: CONCLUSIONS Low quality evidence shows that endoscopic myringoplasty has a lower rate of canaloplasty than microscopic surgery and could result in marginal benefits as regards hospitalization time. Moderate quality evidence shows that the rate of surgical success and reduction in air-bone gap are similar to those of surgery with microscope. Regarding the use of endoscopy for other middle-ear surgery indications, low quality evidence suggests that it is comparable in its outcomes to microscopic surgery. The cost-effectiveness of using endoscopy for middle-ear surgery is uncertain.
