PURPOSE: Although a retroauricular (RA) approach has been proposed for excision of a second brachial cleft cyst (BCC), no studies have performed a direct comparison of the results of the RA approach and those of the conventional transcervical approach. We evaluated the surgical outcomes of the RA approach under direct vision and demonstrate its benefits compared with the conventional transcervical approach for excision of a second BCC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From January 2012 to May 2016, we enrolled 30 consecutive patients with a second BCC who underwent surgical excision as a primary treatment into the present prospective case-control study...

BACKGROUND: Advances in staged total auricular reconstruction have resulted in improved anterior auricular appearance; however, satisfactory postreconstruction esthetics of the retroauricular fold remain challenging. The postauricular appearance of the reconstructed ear depends largely upon optimizing the covering material. When used as the covering soft tissue for ear elevation, a flap containing primarily the upper portion of the retroauricular fascia has potential advantages over the conventional book cover-type retroauricular fascia flap...

A cholesteatoma is a relatively common condition within the middle ear cavity, whereas a cholesteatoma of the squamous part of the temporal bone is an exceptionally rare entity. A case of an iatrogenic cholesteatoma located in the squamous part of the temporal bone is presented, which was revealed by an intermittent purulent discharge from an opening above the right ear 20 years after retroauricular myringoplasty. The diagnosis of an iatrogenic cholesteatoma is often made after several years of evolution, sometimes even at the stage of complications...

Otogenic complications may occur as a result of both acute and chronic otitis media. The purpose of the diagnostic process and treatment of patients with otogenic complications is to identify and eliminate focal points of the infection. Due to general application of antibiotics, these complications are rarely observed. Retroauricular abscess may be the first symptom associated with the development of acute mastoiditis in patients with communication disturbances. Intravenous antibiotics and surgery have been successfully used for treatment in the two described cases...

BACKGROUND: Exposure of the common trunk of the facial nerve has traditionally been approached based on principles of parotidectomy, which is associated with high rates of facial nerve palsy and landmarks that may be unreliable. On the basis of experience gained with vascularized composite allotransplantation of the face, the authors propose a retroauricular approach that may be more time-effective and safe. METHODS: In the proposed retroauricular facial nerve approach, an incision is made posterior to the ear in the retroauricular sulcus, and dissection proceeds anteriorly to the mastoid fascia to the base of the conchal bowl...

BACKGROUND/AIM: As the regeneration capacity of hair cells is limited, inner ear stem cell therapies hold promise. Effects of mouse induced pluripotent stem cells (IPSCs) on Wistar albino rats (WARs) with hearing impairment were investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-five adult WARs with normal hearing were divided into 4 groups. Excluding the study group (n = 15), the other three groups served as control groups for ototoxicity and IPSC injection models. IPSC injections were performed via cochleostomy after a retroauricular approach...

This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of minimal endoscope-assisted thyroidectomy (MEAT) through a retroauricular (RA) approach. Most of the thyroidectomy operative time was accounted for by direct visualization through the RA window, minimizing interference between surgical instruments. Endoscope use was minimized and limited to critical surgical aspects, including preservation of the recurrent laryngeal nerve and parathyroid glands. The recurrent laryngeal nerve was neuromonitored throughout the procedure...

A 38-year-old woman is described who presented with a slowly growing mass on the posterior aspect of the left ear. Excision and histopathologic evaluation revealed a pleomorphic adenoma (PA) originating from heterotopic salivary gland tissue. Many authors have presented cases of PAs originating from ceruminous glands in the external auditory canal or of so-called chondroid syringoma originating from apocrine and eccrine sweat glands. This is the only case in the recent literature of a PA originating from a heterotopic rest of salivary gland tissue in the retroauricular region...

Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most common type of cutaneous neoplasm worldwide. While basal cell carcinoma is the most common tumor, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) causes higher morbidity and has a risk of metastatic spread, depending on immune status, tumor size, and desmoplastic growth. We reported the case of a 77 year old male patient with retroauricular tumor, which started growing 3 years ago and was excised, buth relapsed three times. The initial diagnosis was infundibular cyst. Delayed Mohs surgery was performed, as was an additional open lymph node biopsy of the patient's right groin, on the occasion of an indolent swelling of the same which developed within 3 months...

CONCLUSIONS: Adverse skin reactions were equally distributed among age groups, surgical technique, or presence of a retroauricular incision. Implant loss was observed more frequently in children when compared to adults and elderly. OBJECTIVE: A bone conduction (osseointegrated) implant can be used for rehabilitation of patients with conductive hearing loss or single-sided deafness. The surgical technique has been modified to minimize adverse skin reactions and other complications...
