Objective: There are many reports that have assessed the hearing outcome of tympanoplasty, but few reports have assessed vestibular disorders associated with this surgery. Therefore, the objective was to investigate the postoperative vestibular disorder risk associated with each operative variation of middle ear surgery. Methods: The data were obtained from 233 cases that underwent microscopic middle ear surgery performed on 202 cases of tympanoplasty at our institute from April 2012 to March 2014. We investigated the presence or absence of subjective vestibular symptoms on the day after surgery. In the cases of cholesteatoma, we also investigated lesion extent and location.
