Abstract
In view of probable role of infection in middle ear to ossicular necrosis a prospective study was done on 50 patients at tertiary care centre, where the intraoperative specimen collected during Mastoidectomy was sent for culture sensitivity for any microorganisms . Ossiclar status was also noted during surgery and we tried to correlate if there is any relation ship between infection in middle ear and ossicular necrosis. In our study we found that there was a significant relationship between presence of microorganism and ossicular necrosis.
