BACKGROUND: It is a known fact that bacterial or viral acute otitis media occurs more frequently in the winter months. Only a few older studies on seasonal differences in middle ear findings are available. These studies are based solely on tympanography, without correlation to intraoperative middle ear findings. This study addresses the question of whether seasonal differences can be found in the preoperative tympanogram and in the corresponding intraoperative findings in children with chronic middle ear problems...

BACKGROUND: Bilateral myringotomy and pressure equalization tube insertion (BMT) is the most common surgery in children. Multiple anesthetic techniques for BMT have been proposed, but that which reliably promotes ideal recovery remains unclear. We sought to assess associations between anesthetic regimens that included single-agent (fentanyl or ketorolac) or dual-agent (fentanyl and ketorolac) analgesic therapy and the primary outcome of maximal postanesthesia care unit (PACU) pain score...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Syringomyelia is a progressive cerebrospinal fluid disorder which can lead to irreversible spinal cord injury. To date, the optimal management of syringomyelic cavities remains controversial. Multiple studies have emphasized the importance of the cranio-cervical decompression or shunting procedures. However, excepted for syrinx related to Arnold Chiari malformation, nearly half of patients need to be re-operated. The purpose of the present study was to describe a simple and efficient surgical technique and to report the long-term radio-clinical outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: Balloon eustachian tuboplasty (BET) has entered clinical use as a treatment for eustachian tube dysfunction. Some surgeons perform myringotomy prior to BET due to concerns that the increase in middle ear (ME) pressure caused by BET may cause otic barotrauma. We investigated the ME pressure changes occurring during BET in cadavers. STUDY DESIGN: Human cadaver investigation of a surgical technique SETTING: Laboratory study at a tertiary referral center...

BACKGROUND: Chronic otitis media with effusion (COME) and adenoid hypertrophy (AH) are common entities in the pediatric population. The conventional treatment approach (conventional medicine; COM) involved mainly surgery after a period of close observation. In this study, we aimed to introduce an integrative, non-invasive approach (integrative medicine; IM) for COME, AH, and associated episodes of recurrent acute otitis media, and compared outcomes with conventional treatment. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, non-randomized study in an integrative primary care pediatric practice and a conventional pediatric otolaryngological clinic, where treatment modality was determined by patient preference...

We conducted a prospective, observational study over a 3-year period to compare the clinical, functional, and surgical findings in children with chronic bilateral otitis media with effusion who underwent one of three different types of treatment. Our study population was made up of 150 patients-79 boys and 71 girls aged 24 to 84 months-who were randomly assigned to one of the three treatment groups of 50 patients each. One group was treated with myringotomy, tympanostomy tube insertion, and adenoidectomy (T+A group); another with a combination of physical conservative treatment and adenoidectomy (P+A group); and the third with physical conservative treatment alone (P-only group)...

Myringotomy with the insertion of ventilation tubes is the most frequent surgical procedure performed in children, and the appearance of myringosclerosis is one of its most frequent long-term complications. The objective of this study is to identify clinical factors and technique variations that may have a relation with the appearance of myringosclerosis, after tube insertion. Patients submitted to myringotomy with transtympanic short-term tube insertion were studied in a longitudinal prospective and analytical cohort study with the prospective randomized open, blinded endpoint (PROBE) methodology, to study the influence of the location of myringotomy (anterior-inferior quadrant or posterior-inferior), directions of the incision (radial or non-radial) and aspiration or not of the middle ear...

The objective of the present study was the comparative analysis of the surgical method employed for the treatment of exudative otitis medium, such as bypass surgery and laser myringotomy. The study included 125 patients suffering from the said pathology. The following two methods were used in cases of poor efficiency of conservative therapy: laser myringotomy with the use of a LUMENISc CO2-laser operated at a wavelength of 10.6 mcm with the SurgiTouch scanner and bypass of the tympanic cavity. Each of these methods was applied to treat 38 patients...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Bilateral myringotomy and tympanostomy tube placement (BMT) is one of the most frequently performed pediatric outpatient procedures with 667,000 children receiving tympanostomy tubes annually. Because of this high volume, discovering the ideal analgesic regimen may lead to decreased overall postanesthesia care unit (PACU) costs while increasing patient and parent satisfaction. The purpose of this study is to determine if there is any benefit in supplementing intranasal (IN) fentanyl with intramuscular (IM) ketorolac with regard to immediate recovery characteristics...

Rosenfeld et al in their recent article "Office Insertion of Tympanostomy Tubes without Anesthesia in Young Children" describe using a "papoose board for restraint" while performing a procedure resulting in severe pain for a significant number of children: a myringotomy and tube insertion. In 2016, it is inappropriate to perform elective painful procedures in children without treatment to avoid or minimize pain. We strongly disagree with the authors' conclusion "that office insertion of tubes in young children is a feasible alternative to general anesthesia for caregivers and clinicians who are comfortable with this choice...

Tympanostomy is the most frequently performed surgery procedure in Germany. It enables middle ear ventilation and discharge of secretion from the middle ear with immediate hearing improvement and avoidance of complications and long-term pathologies of the tympanic membrane and the tympanum. The economical importance is emphasized by the fact that about 300,000 myringotomies are performed yearly. The best type of middle ear drainage and ventilation should be chosen on a case-by-case basis. In this context, the various techniques like conventional myringotomy, laser-myringotomy, short-term and long-term tympanostomy tubes and indications, complications and their treatments are described...

BACKGROUND: Syringomyelia results from obstruction of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow due to a multitude of causes. Often symptoms of pain, weakness, and sensory disturbance are progressive and require surgical treatment. We present here a rare technique for syringosubarachnoid shunting. CASE DESCRIPTION: We present the case of a 38-year-old male who suffered a traumatic cervical spinal cord injury due to a motor vehicle accident. With progressive pain and motor decline, a magnetic resonance imaging was obtained and showed a new syrinx extending cervical multiple segments...
