Traditional reconstruction methods of osseous defects within the tympanic frame, most often being the atticotomy, within the framework of chronic otitis media surgery, still do not produce stable or definitive results, usually due to displacement or partial lyse of the transplanted material (cartilage, bone ...). The reconstruction procedure with the aid of hydroxyapatite cement as presented by the authors, allows for a complete, stable and definitive reconstruction.

To evaluate a technique of canal wall up mastoidectomy for limited attic cholesteatoma and to study practical considerations during surgery. Any person undergoing surgery for attic cholesteatoma was thoroughly examined during surgery and decision for doing this canal wall up (CWU) surgery will be taken on operating table. The patients were regularly followed up and microscopic, oto endoscopic and audiological assessments done at regular intervals. Revision surgery was done only if there were signs of recidivism or if ossiculoplasty was planned for second stage or placement of a prosthesis later was considered...

BACKGROUND: Postauricular cutaneous mastoid fistula (PCMF) is a rare complication of chronic suppurative otitis media, may also complicate ear surgery and, very rarely, has been reported to complicate congenital cholesteatoma. Few authors have given descriptions of techniques of closure, with majority agreeing on the difficulty in managing such fistula due to the necrotic nature of the margin. SETTING: A tertiary care urban referral hospital in a developing economy...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: An acquired attic cholesteatoma may spontaneously drain externally into the external auditory canal, leaving a cavity in the attic with the shape of the original cholesteatoma but now filled with air, a phenomenon referred to as "nature's atticotomy" or auto-atticotomy. We describe and quantify the CT appearance of the auto-atticotomy cavity as it pertains to the appearance of the scutum and the lateral attic wall. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one patients with erosion of the scutum and loss of the lower attic wall on MDCT were identified during a 5-year span...

OBJECTIVE: Following cholesteatoma surgery, effective long-term hearing preservation in children is difficult and is not typically expected. Hence, long-term data on hearing outcomes are lacking. The aim of this study was to analyze long-term hearing outcomes in children following cholesteatoma surgery. METHODS: For this study, 49 ears in 47 children (≤16 years) with acquired cholesteatomas following atticotomy-limited mastoidectomy with cartilage reconstruction (inside-out approach) during 1986-2010 were included...

INTRODUCTION: Etiopathogenetically, there are two types of chollesteatomas: congenital, and acquired. Numerous theories in the literature try to explain the nature of the disease, however, the question about cholesteatomas remain still unanswered. The aim of the study was to present a case of external ear canal cholesteatoma (EEC) developed following microsurgery (ventilation tube insertion and mastoidectomy), as well as to point ant possible mechanisms if its development. CASE REPORT: A 16-year-old boy presented a 4-month sense of fullness in the ear and otalgia on the left side...

Chronic otitis media with cholesteatoma is considered an "unsafe" ear and generally requires surgical management. This is particularly challenging in children due to anatomical, pathophysiological and social reasons. There are different approaches for this objective. The two main options are the canal wall up and canal wall down mastoidectomy. The aim of this article is to compare the advantages and disadvantages of canal wall up and canal wall down method and present the third way of surgical management: the inside-outside approach through an endaural incision...

OBJECTIVES: We studied the results of postauricular approach atticotomy in patients with cholesteatoma of the anterior epitympanum. METHODS: Twenty-six patients were selected for removal of cholesteatoma of the anterior epitympanum by postauricular approach atticotomy, a closed transcanal procedure that is used to expose and remove cholesteatoma. After removal of cholesteatoma, reconstruction of the scutum is performed with cymbal cartilage. RESULTS: Postauricular approach atticotomy can be performed as part of a canal wall-up procedure in selected cases in which cholesteatoma invades the anterior epitympanum...

OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively present the experience with 586 patients or 604 ears operated for cholesteatoma. PATIENTS: All patients, adults and children, with histologically confirmed cholesteatoma and a mean age of 36 years (3 to 86 yr). INTERVENTION: With the inside-out technique, cholesteatoma is eradicated from the epitympanum toward the mastoid: small cholesteatoma is removed by a transcanal approach, and medium-sized cholesteatoma is removed by a retroauricular atticotomy and cartilaginous reconstruction of the canal wall...

Combined use of an operating microscope and a middle ear endoscope seems to be helpful for selecting an appropriate surgical technique and for identifying more patients in whom cholesteatoma can be removed by a trans-canal approach alone. To investigate whether attic cholesteatoma can be treated by a trans-canal approach alone, a review was performed of patients who had undergone endoscopically assisted tympanoplasty and the outcome of surgery was compared with the preoperative CT findings. Using a rigid endoscope (3 mm in diameter and 6 cm in length with a viewing angle of 30 degrees ), twenty eight patients were examined to determine whether total resection of the cholesteatoma was possible by trans-canal atticotomy alone...
