OBJECTIVE: To identify whether stapes surgery causes otolith dysfunction using bone-conducted vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective study. SETTING: Hyogo College of Medicine Hospital. PATIENTS: Twenty primary ears (19 otosclerosis, 1 congenital stapes fixation) in 17 patients (2 men, 15 women; mean age 51 yr, range 20-68 yr) who had normal cervical VEMP (cVEMP) and ocular VEMP (oVEMP) results with bone-conducted stimulation were included...

OBJECTIVE: Biomarkers reflecting the etiology and pathophysiology of inner ear diseases are limited. Evaluation of proteins in the perilymph may improve our understanding of inner ear disease. Heat shock proteins (HSP) belong to a superfamily of stress proteins and promote refolding of denatured proteins. The aim of the study was to analyze HSP in human perilymph and to identify possible correlation with audiological and etiologic data. METHODS: Sampling of the perilymph was performed during cochlear implantation and vestibular schwannoma removal...

OBJECTIVES: Bilateral cochlear implants (CI) are the standard treatment for bilaterally deaf children, but it is unclear how much the second CI can be delayed in sequential bilateral CI. We investigated the performances of sequential CI to answer this question. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series review. SETTING: Tertiary referral center. METHODS: We studied a cohort of congenitally deaf children (n = 73) who underwent sequential CI without any inner ear anomaly or combined disabilities...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of chronic otitis media with effusion (COME), and Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) is high in Down syndrome (DS) patients. This often necessitates multiple tympanostomy tube (TT) placements resulting in a higher rate of persistent tympanic membrane (TM) perforation requiring tympanoplasty for repair. OBJECTIVES: To assess risk factors for persistent perforation and outcomes of tympanoplasty in DS patients. METHODS: Retrospective case series of 91 ears in 69 DS patients with TM perforations, who were either observed or underwent tympanoplasty...

Intraoperative bradycardia (IOB) is one of the most common cardiac arrhythmias observed in clinical anaesthetic practice. Controlled hypotension, as a strategy of lowering patient's blood pressure during anesthesia has been practiced for decades in head and neck surgery. The aim of our study was to determine the incidence and the risk factors for intraoperative bradycardia in maxillofacial, ear, nose and throat surgery, as well as to determine whether controlled hypotension affects the occurrence of IOB. The retrospective study included 2304 patients who underwent maxillofacial, ear, nose or throat surgery...

The study was conducted to report on the scope and prevalence of occupational health related-problems experienced by dentists, dental therapists, and oral hygienists in their practice of dentistry. BACKGROUND: Professional practice and dental training have many risk factors, and the dental team should be able to recognize these factors to protect themselves. The prevalence of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, stress, percutaneous injuries, ears, and eyes are of concern...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of a new high-resolution 3D endoscope in endoscopic ear and lateral skull base surgery. METHODS: Eight patients, five women and three men, were included in this clinical pilot prospective study. Their age was 38 ± 17.3 years (mean ± SD, range 17-54 years). The right side was involved in five cases, and the left side in three cases. There were three cases of chronic otitis, one case of cholesteatoma of the external auditory canal, one case of otosclerosis, one case of cochlear implant surgery, and two cases of stage 2 vestibular schwannoma operated on with a retrosigmoid approach to preserve hearing...

OBJECTIVE: Malignant melanoma accounts for nearly 75% of all skin cancer deaths, and the incidence is on the rise in the United States. External ear melanoma (EEM) is rare, and there is little long-term data regarding the clinical behavior of this melanoma site. This study analyzes the demographic, clinicopathologic, and survival characteristics of EEM. METHODS: The SEER database was queried for EEM cases from 1973 to 2012 (8,982 cases). Data analyzed included patient demographics, incidence trends, and survival outcomes...

Ossicular fixation through otosclerosis, chronic otitis media and other pathologies, especially tympanosclerosis, are treated by surgery if hearing aids fail as an alternative. However, the best hearing outcome is often based on knowledge of the degree and location of the fixation. Objective methods to quantify the degree and position of the fixation are largely lacking. Laser vibrometry is a known method to detect ossicular fixation but clinical applicability remains limited. A new method, minimally invasive laser vibrometry (MIVIB), is presented to quantify ossicle mobility using laser vibrometry measurement through the ear canal after elevating the tympanic membrane, thus making the method feasible in minimally invasive explorative surgery...

Objectives: Our aim was to present our endoscope-assisted cochlear implantation (CI) technique, in which the middle ear landmarks were identified through the facial recess exposure by using an endoscopic view without elevating the tympanic annulus. The secondary goal was to assess whether the situation of difficult surgical exposure could be predicted by evaluating preoperative axial computed tomography (CT) examinations. Methods: CT examinations and surgical outcomes of endoscope-assisted CI surgeries were analyzed...

Lipomas of the parotid gland are benign tumors developing from the fatty tissue in the gland. They are rare, accounting for 0.6-4.4% of all benign tumors. Those located in the deep lobe of the gland are uncommon. Clinically, they are very difficult to diagnose. CT scan and especially MRI can support the diagnosis. Surgery is the treatment of choice but its modalities remain controversial. We report the case of a 52-year old female patient, with no particular past medical history, presenting with asymptomatic left preauricular mass evolving over 1 year and gradually increasing in volume...

OBJECTIVE: Recent studies found that mobile phone users had a significantly greater risk of having elevated thresholds in speech frequencies. This study investigated the correlation between the laterality of sudden sensorineural hearing loss, handedness and the preferred ear for mobile phone use. METHODS: The study included all patients who presented with sudden sensorineural hearing loss to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery in our tertiary referral medical centre between 2014 and 2016...
