Paper Abstract

This study investigates guinea-pig and horse tympanic membranes, sheep dura and chicken eggshell membranes in terms of thickness, histology and tissue interaction with the carbon-dioxide and the erbium:YAG laser. Comparison with formalin-fixed human tympanic membranes as reference structure has provided a suitable model for further research in laser myringotomy. The horse tympanic membrane seems to meet our demands regarding the three parameters mentioned above.
