Özet

Objective: A close relationship between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and myringosclerosis, which is a common complication of myringotomy, was recently reported. The objective of this study was to measure ROS levels directly in rat tympanic membranes using luminol-aided chemiluminescence (CL) in order to compare the levels of ROS after incisional and radiofrequency (RF) myringotomy.
