INTRODUCTION: Chronic suppurative inflammation of the middle ear (HGO) in children represents one of the most frequent infections in childhood, even in children from developed industrial countries. We can distinguish two types of chronic suppurative inflammation: first--HGO without cholesteatoma and second HGO with cholesteatoma. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the paper was to point out the characteristics of chronic suppurative inflammation of the middle ear in children and possible methods of treatment...

UNLABELLED: Tympanoplasty is done to eradicate ear pathology and to restore the conductive hearing mechanism (eardrum and ossicles). Some patients, however, do not tolerate tinnitus and question physicians about the results of surgery when tinnitus persists. AIM: to evaluate the progression of tinnitus in patients with conductive hearing loss after tympanoplasty. STUDY DESIGN: a prospective cohort study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 23 consecutive patients with tinnitus due to chronic otitis media underwent tympanoplasty...

UNLABELLED: Chronic otitis media has a high prevalence on the population and their treatment continuous to be a challenge for the otorhinolaryngologists. AIM: To demonstrate the factors that could interfere in the tympanoplasty success and the surgical results during 2002. STUDY DESIGN: Clinical prospective. MATERIAL AND METHOD: were included 37 patients with chronic otitis media non cholesteatoma (COMNC) undergo to tympanoplasty (in lay or underlay, with homologous graft)...

The authors report on 20 immunocompetent patients with brain abscess after 12 cases of middle ear, seven tooth and a single frontal sinus infection. The clinical aspects, hematochemical and microbiological data, the role of imaging diagnostics (CT, MR) and the type of treatment are analysed. Neurosurgery was performed on 17 patients (85%), eight of whom subsequently underwent evacuation of the primary source of infection (four mastoidectomies, two timpanoplasties, two tooth extractions). Mastoidectomy was eventually carried out on one of the three patients who did not undergo neurosurgery...

We present our results in a timpanoplasty technique using autologous cartilage, in a retrospective study of 71 cases within 3 years. We used this technique in revision surgery, large perforations, severe retractions, and atrophic membranes. 32% of cases needed ossicular chain reconstruction. A complete closing of the membrane was obtained in 86% of cases, while 14% remained re-perforated or discontinued between cartilage pieces. These results are comparable to other studies using cartilage graft with several techniques...

The prevalence of serous otitis media has caused a philosophical difference as to when a tympanoplasty should be performed in children. This retrospective study of 74 children (aged 3-17) who underwent 80 operations was undertaken to investigate this problem. The overall success rate for type 1 tympanoplasty was 66%. Age was not a reliable factor in predicting successful results. A history of recurrent serous otitis media was not an important indicator. Adenoidectomy did not influence the surgical outcome. The status of the nonoperated ear was probably a significant factor...
