The term congenital aural atresia is used to describe failure of external auditory canal to open. Thus it results in conductive hearing loss. There are ways to improve the transmission of sound to the healthy inner ear, we have performed surgery to open the ear canal and restore the natural sound-conducting mechanism to the inner ear. Thus avoiding multiple surgeries. The study was conducted among patients aged between 12 and 24 years, our study included 8 patients with aural atresia with cholesteotoma. After a detailed examination of patients were subjected to surgery. In our study with the sample size of eight patients Where, all our patients underwent canal wall down mastoidectomy with simultaneous single stage reconstruction of ossicular chain. All our patients were discharge free and Had subjective improvement in hearing with the post operative period was well accomplished to < 35 dB. In our study all eight patients who underwent canal wall down mastoidectomy had good hearing outcome. As to avoid unnecessary recurrence and complications which are usually seen in intact canal wall down mastoidectomies, we suggest canal wall down and single stage reconstruction.
