INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is associated with episodic illnesses, multi-systemic affectations and end-organs damages. Otolaryngological related complications are not unexpected. Studies on the overall Otolaryngological pathologies in children with SCD relative to their non-SCD counterparts are scanty in Nigeria. We hypothesized that children with SCD are likely to have more otological burdens than their non-SCD counterparts. Thus, we embarked on this study to describe and compare the overall ear diseases burdens seen in children with sickle cell disease relative to their non-SCD counterparts...

Otosclerosis in childhood and adolescence or juvenile otosclerosis is a rare disorder resulting in conductive hearing loss. A 9-year-old boy presented to our clinic, suffering from moderate hearing loss. According to his parents, his hearing acuity had progressively deteriorated over the past 2 years. Otoscopy and tympanometry revealed bilateral secretory otitis media and the patient underwent bilateral grommet insertion. However, he continued to report of hearing loss and a right exploratory tympanotomy was performed...

OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were to review the causes of stapes fixation in children undergoing stapes surgery and to analyze the results of stapes surgery in children in the short term, at 1 year, and over the long term. METHODS: The medical records of 18 children (28 ears) who had undergone stapes surgery between January 1999 and December 2012 were retrospectively reviewed. The medical history, computed tomography results, intraoperative findings, video clips, and hearing outcomes of all patients were reported...

INTRODUCTION: 'Dead ear' is a rare and serious complication of ear surgery. This paper presents an audit of this complication. METHOD: Over 6 years, data for all 617 middle-ear operations performed under the care of a single consultant were recorded for the International Otology Audit. All cases of dead ear were identified and assessed. RESULTS: A post-operative dead ear occurred in 6 cases (approximately 1 per cent). No cases of post-operative dead ear occurred following the 83 otosclerosis operations and the 62 children's procedures...

This article describes the effect of ethnicity, gender, aging, and instrumentation on wideband acoustic immittance (WAI). This is an important topic to investigate as the goal of any audiological test is optimize the test's sensitivity and specificity. One way to improve the test's sensitivity and specificity is to reduce the variability of the normative data. The impact of the aforementioned demographic characteristics on WAI norms has been reviewed, and where applicable its potential impact on clinical outcome has been discussed...

OBJECTIVE: To compare outcomes of stapedectomy in patients with congenital stapes fixation versus juvenile otosclerosis. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed from January 1, 1999 until January 1, 2011 to identify patients under 18 years old who underwent a stapedectomy. Age, gender, pre- and postoperative audiograms, intraoperative findings including etiology of stapes fixation, prosthesis type, and complications were recorded. RESULTS: Twenty-two children were identified who had undergone a stapedectomy (two patients underwent sequential bilateral surgery) resulting in a total of 24 ears...

PURPOSE: Aim of this study was to examine any stapes fixation-related clinical, intraoperative and high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) findings in children undergoing stapedotomy. PROCEDURES: Detailed diagnostic assessment was performed in 12 children (18 ears) who underwent stapedotomy within the period 2005-2008. RESULTS: Ear malformations such as malleus-incus anomalies, malleus-epitympanum fixation and absence of the stapedius tendon, small external auditory canal and auricle malformations were clinically and/or intraoperatively diagnosed...

OBJECTIVES: To study children who had undergone stapedectomy at an age younger than 16 years to determine the causes (particularly frequency of congenital anomalies vs otosclerosis) and to analyze the functional results over the short-term, 1-year, and long-term postsurgery time course. DESIGN: Ten-year retrospective study covering 1998 to 2008. SETTING: Pediatric tertiary care centers. PATIENTS: A total of 33 patients (35 ears) underwent stapes surgery from October 1998 to October 2008...

INTRODUCTION: Otitis media with effusion is the most common cause of hearing loss in children and myringotomy with tympanostomy tube insertion is recommended procedure to deal with the problem. The objective of the present study was to determine the results of treatment, incidence and prevalence of middle ear sequelae and hearing results among children with chronic otitis media with effusion who received standard treatment with tympanostomy tubes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The group of 97 patients treated by tympanostomy tubes insertion in the years 1999-2001 was reevaluated after mean period of follow up 7...

The aim of this work is to reexamine our experience with the treatment of conductive and mixed hearing loss using the Baha system. The system was implanted in 47 patients (16 adults and 31 children under the age of 14), bilaterally in two cases. The causes of hypoacusis were bilateral congenital aural atresia (31 patients), bilateral chronic otitis media or outcomes of middle-ear surgery (Gillett et al. in J laryngol Otol 120:537-542, 2006), and otosclerosis (Pazzaglia et al. in Acta Orthop Scand 54:574-579, 1983)...

OBJECTIVE: Optical coherence tomography was used to study the stapes footplate, both in cadaveric temporal bones and during middle-ear surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Optical coherence tomography was conducted on five temporal bone preparations (from two children and three adults) and in eight patients during middle-ear surgery. A specially equipped operating microscope with integrated spectral domain optical coherence tomography apparatus was used for standard middle-ear surgical procedures...

Otospongiosis is an osteodystrophy of the temporal bone, characterized by disordered neoformation and deposition of bone, characterized by the presence of a progressive conductive, sensorineural or mixed hearing loss and tinnitus. Typically, otospongiosis presents as a slowly progressive conductive hearing loss in the third to fourth decade of life. Uncommonly children and adolescents may also have conductive or sensorineural hearing loss caused by otosclerosis. We describe a case of an 11-year-old patient, with progressive unilateral conductive hearing loss for 5 years...

OBJECTIVES: To demonstrate that 1) recent graduates of training programs in otorhinolaryngology-head and neck surgery are less likely to recommend/perform stapedectomy than more senior otolaryngologists; and 2) when surgery is recommended, referral is most commonly made to an otologist/neurotologist. STUDY DESIGN: Survey of 500 regional otolaryngologists pertaining to their treatment of patients with hearing loss secondary to otosclerosis. METHODS: Otolaryngologists in community practice were provided with written surveys pertaining to their treatment of otosclerosis...

OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to evaluate the features of tympanosclerosis in children and to determine the effect of stapes mobility and the type of one-stage operation on hearing outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-one children who were performed different types of single-stage otologic surgery for tympanosclerosis between January 1997 and December 2006 were retrospectively chart reviewed. The children were divided into two groups according to the mobility of ossicular chain, especially the stapes...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the role of the CT-scan in the preoperative evaluation of juvenile otosclerosis and to study additional outcome data. DESIGN AND SETTING: We performed a retrospective case series study from an academic referral hospital using data from 1992 to 2005. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We selected patients younger than 18-year-old who had undergone primary stapedectomy for otosclerosis among the 10 stapedectomies performed over the study period and analyzed the patients' systematic pre- and post-operative audiograms and CT-scan findings...

As early as in 1878, medical teams managing children born with a velopalatine cleft had noted the prevalence of middle-ear pathologies largely related to anatomic and inflammatory Eustachian tube dysfunction. The aim of this study was to describe otologic sequels related to a velopalatine cleft and to suggest an adapted management. These sequels are evolving presentations of chronic serous otitis; they worsen the functional prognosis (hypoacousia) and more rarely the vital prognosis (cerebral or infectious complications of cholesteatoma)...
