Chronic Otitis Media (COM) is as ancient human problem as humanity itself.1 It is the most common treatable cause of hearing loss in developing countries like Pakistan.2 In the past the subject of hearing restoration was not properly addressed by otologist, however with the discovery of antibiotics, availability of sophisticated operating microscopes and anesthetic facilities a dramatic revolution has taken place.3 Marcus Banzer was the first surgeon to treat the COM with graft obtained from pig's bladder in 1640.
Because the RGEA is a visceral artery and the fourth branch of the aorta (abdominal aorta, coeliac artery, common hepatic artery, gastroduodenal artery, and RGEA), its diameter and flow volume are smaller than both the IMA and SVG grafts. Therefore, it is difficult to determine the quality of the RGEA anastomosis using a cutoff MGF value.

A rootstock might influence the eventual size of a plant, as attested to by my 10-year-old 'Liberty' apple tree, topping out at 8 feet high thanks to the M27 dwarfing rootstock onto which it's grafted. Some rootstocks promote quicker bearing, or tolerance to soils that are too wet, too dry, too salty, or nematode-infested.
