50 cases of chronic suppurative otitis media wth dry ear were taken up for myringoplasty operation by underlay technique through permeatal route in most of the cases. The dura mater was taken at autopsy from dead bodies within 6–8 hours of death, which was then stored in 70% Alcohol. The graft was washed with normal saline half an hour before the use. Homologus duramater graft was fully taken up in 68 percent cases and partially taken up in 12% cases, failure rate of the graft was 20% in a follow up of 6–12 months.
