REVIEW
Caroline C Jeffery, Cameron Shillington, Colin Andrews, Allan Ho
BACKGROUND: Tympanoplasty is a common procedure performed by Otolaryngologists. Many types of autologous grafts have been used with variations of techniques with varying results. This is the first systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis with the aim to evaluate the effectiveness of one of the techniques which is gaining popularity, the palisade cartilage tympanoplasty. PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases were searched for "palisade", "cartilage", "tympanoplasty", "perforation" and their synonyms...

Cholesteatoma is a progressive destructive ear disease which can affect any age group. It has been found to be more severe in children and young adults. It erodes the surrounding bone of middle ear, mastoid and ossicles. It causes partial to total deafness, unpleasant smelling discharge, pain, tinnitus, vertigo and facial paralysis. It can even cause meningitis, brain abscess and death. The post-operative outcome of hearing, and the state of the reconstructed middle-ear cavity after concurrent and staged reconstruction of middle ear after canal wall down mastoidectomy was studied in 30 ears with middle-ear cholesteatoma...

HYPOTHESIS: Drilling on the incus produces intracochlear pressure changes comparable to pressures created by high-intensity acoustic stimuli. BACKGROUND: New-onset sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) following mastoid surgery can occur secondary to inadvertent drilling on the ossicular chain. To investigate this, we test the hypothesis that high sound pressure levels are generated when a high-speed drill contacts the incus. METHODS: Human cadaveric heads underwent mastoidectomy, and fiber-optic sensors were placed in scala tympani and vestibuli to measure intracochlear pressures (PIC)...

INTRODUCTION: Citelli's abscess is an extratemporal complication of otitis media. It occurs when pus from the mastoid tip trickles down along the posterior belly of the digastric muscle to the occipital and cervical region. It is a very unusual presenting complication of chronic otitis media with no available data in the until now. CASE REPORT: A 10-year-old female was presented to our outpatient department with a 1 month history of hi-grade fever and headache and pain around the left half of the face...

HYPOTHESIS: Acoustic stimulation generates measurable sound pressure levels in the semicircular canals. BACKGROUND: High-intensity acoustic stimuli can cause hearing loss and balance disruptions. To examine the propagation of acoustic stimuli to the vestibular end-organs, we simultaneously measured fluid pressure in the cochlea and semicircular canals during both air- and bone-conducted sound presentation. METHODS: Five full-cephalic human cadaveric heads were prepared bilaterally with a mastoidectomy and extended facial recess...

The anatomical area exposed through the exposure of Trautmann's triangle may not be sufficient. We studied the additional exposure provided by skeletonizing the sigmoid sinus. Human cadaver heads were subjected to a thin temporal bone CT scan for a total of 10 sides. The estimated surgical working angle was calculated based on the relationship of the sigmoid sinus to the posterior semicircular canal, superior petrosal sinus and jugular bulb on imaging. The heads were then subjected to a mastoidectomy and remeasured with and without sigmoid sinus skeletonization...

Functional outcomes and complications in otosclerosis surgery are governed by the surgeon's experience. Thus, teaching the procedure to residents to guide them through the learning process as quickly as possible is challenging. Artificial 3D-printed temporal bones are replacing cadaver specimens in many institutions to learn mastoidectomy, but these are not suitable for middle ear surgery training. The goal of this work was to adapt such an artificial temporal bone to aid the teaching of otosclerosis surgery and to evaluate this tool...

Methemoglobin is an oxidized form of hemoglobin. NADH methemoglobin reductase deficiency or inactivity is the cause of methemoglobin. Excessive production, resulting in accumulation, causes methemoglobinemia. It can be congenital or acquired. We present a case of dormant congenital methemoglobinemia detected accidentally on preoperative assessment, due to low oxygen saturation even at F1O2-1.0 associated with central cyanosis. The patient had 27.7 % methemoglobin, living his life without any complications...
