OBJECTIVE: Making a 3-dimensional (3D) temporal bone model is simple using a plaster powder bed and an inkjet printer. However, it is difficult to reproduce air-containing spaces and precise middle ear structures. The objective of this study was to overcome these problems and create a temporal bone model that would be useful both as a training tool and for preoperative simulation. METHODS: Drainage holes were made to remove excess materials from air-containing spaces, ossicle ligaments were manually changed to bony structures, and small and/or soft tissue structures were colored differently while designing the 3D models...

Report of a rare case of severe bleeding from the middle ear cavity after myringotomy. On the basis of the case report, the procedure for such bleeding is discussed in the context of the literature. A 6-year-old boy received a revision myringotomy in an ambulant setting. During the procedure a severe bleeding occurred. The external auditory canal was adequately packed. The patient was extubated and transferred to the clinic as an emergency. Computer tomography of the temporal bone showed the anatomical variant of a dehiscent high jugular bulb, which had been injured...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Stapes surgery for otosclerosis can be challenging if access to the oval window niche is restricted. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of the computed tomographic (CT) scan in the evaluation of anatomical distances, and to analyze its reliability in predicting surgical technical difficulties. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 96 patients (101 ears) were enrolled in a prospective study between 2012 and May 2015. During surgery, we evaluated the distance D1 between the stapes and the facial nerve, distance D2 between the promontory and the facial nerve after ablation of the superstructure, and the intraoperative discomfort of the surgeon...

Extradural hematoma (EDH) in absence of trauma is a rare entity with only few cases reported in literature. The various causes reported include: Vascular malformation of dura, coagulopathies, sinus infection, middle ear or orbital infection, and tumor. Occurrence of spontaneous EDH as a complication of sickle cell disease is even much rarer. We report a case with sickle cell disease who presented with spontaneous extradural and subgaleal hematomas following an episode of vaso-oclusive crisis. He was managed successfully with surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Severe sepsis is known to result in various neurological long-term deficits in human. Recently, a link between severe, lethal sepsis and significant hearing loss with correlating histomorphological inner ear changes in mice (C57BL/6) was observed. However, if similar observations can be made in severe, non-lethal sepsis in mice is unclear. This study evaluates mice after severe, non-lethal sepsis for analogue functional and histomorphological alterations of the inner ear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 63 C57BL/6 mice were included in the study...

INTRODUCTION: The lenticular process of the incus succumbs to necrosis in chronic otitis media. Few researchers have addressed the issue of autograft incus preservation in the soft tissue of the tragus or mastoid cavity. Nonetheless, preservation of the incus in this method during the second stage of ossiculoplasty is a subject that is still up for debate. This study was carried out to demonstrate the hearing outcome after a modification of the incus interposition technique, which involved preserving it in the periauricular soft tissue...

BACKGROUND: Aberrant internal carotid artery (aICA) is an anatomical anomaly whereby the internal carotid artery (ICA) courses through the tympanic cavity without separation by bone. Since aICA is rare, there are no definite treatment strategies for aICA and its complications. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a case of aICA accompanied by pseudoaneurysm formation and massive bleeding. Our case was a 31-year-old woman with a 2-year history of hearing loss, ear fullness, and pulsatile tinnitus in her left ear...

OBJECTIVES: Endoscopic transcanal myringoplasty is a newly-introduced technique for reconstruction of tympanic membrane perforation that offers the advantage to obviate postauricular incision. The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of a double-handed endoscope holder transcanal myringoplasty in children. This technique permits bimanual execution of the procedure and allows the surgeon to overcome the two significant issues of single-handed endoscope surgery, i.e. easy domination of a bloody field and smooth introduction of the graft...

Dorsal augmentation grafts are used to reconstruct and raise the nasal dorsum in patients with dorsal saddling due to trauma, infection, or previous nasal surgery, as well as in patients with a narrow, congenitally low, and/or wide dorsum. Alloplastic implants and various biomaterials are available for grafting, each with advantages and disadvantages. Although autologous septal cartilage is a preferable and often convenient source of cartilage, it is frequently not sufficient for large volume dorsal augmentation, nor is it available in patients who have had septoplasty, infection, previous rhinoplasty with grafting, or significant trauma...

Within the Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) medical space, a relatively small fraction of patients follow through with elective surgeries to fix ailments such as a deviated septum or occluded sinus passage. Patient understanding of their diagnosis and treatment plan is integral to compliance, which ultimately yields improved medical outcomes and better quality of life. Here we report the usage of advanced, polyjet 3D printing methods to develop a multimaterial replica of human nasal sinus anatomy, derived from clinical X-ray computed tomography (CT) data, to be used as an educational aid during physician consultation...

Background. False negative fistula testing in patients with chronic suppurative otitis media is a dilemma when proceeding to surgery. It is imperative to rule out a dead labyrinth or a mass effect secondary to the cholesteatoma in an otherwise normally functioning inner ear. We present a case series of three patients in whom a bedside vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) evaluation using a head impulse test was used successfully for further evaluation prior to surgery. Results. In all three cases with a false negative fistula test we were able to further evaluate at the bedside and were not only able to register the abnormal VOR but also localize its deterioration to a particular semicircular canal eroded by the fistula...

Introduction The endolymphatic sac is thought to maintain the hydrostatic pressure and endolymph homeostasis for the inner ear, and its dysfunction may contribute to the pathophysiology of Ménière's disease. Throughout the years, different surgical procedures for intractable vertigo secondary to Ménière's disease have been described, and though many authors consider these procedures as effective, there are some who question its long-term efficacy and even those who think that vertigo control is achieved more due to a placebo effect than because of the procedure itself...

Introduction After mastoidectomy, patients usually complain of bone depressions in the retroauricular region in the surgical site, especially in procedures that require extensive cortical resections. This causes inconveniences such as difficulty wearing glasses, cleaning, and aesthetics complaints. Objective This study aims to describe a vascularized flap surgical technique that uses the mastoid cortical bone adhered to the periosteum, which is pedicled on the anterior portion and repositioned at the end of the surgery...
