STUDY DESIGN: Comparative study of a physiological vestibular function test in healthy subjects. SETTING: Tertiary referral center for otology and neurotology. PATIENTS: Twenty two healthy volunteers were recruited for this study...

The management of sporadic vestibular schwannoma (VS) has evolved in the last decades. The aim of this study was to analyse the evolution in surgical outcomes of VSs operated by a neurotological team between 1990 and 2006 by different approaches. A monocentric retrospective review of medical charts of 1006 patients was performed. In order to assess eventual changes and progress, the 17-years period was divided in three periods, each one comprehending 268 VS (1990-1996), 299 VS (1997-2001), and 439 VS (2002-2006)...

OBJECTIVE: The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) recently published guidelines on the treatment of tinnitus. This paper examines the possible impact of those guidelines on otologic practice. DESIGN: A survey was sent to the members of the American Neurotology Society before and after the publication of Clinical practice guideline: tinnitus. The goals of this study were to see if the guidelines changed attitudes of otologists, confirm what treatments and explanations are being used in the field before and after the guidelines were published...

Hemostasis is a critical component of otologic and neurotologic surgery. In these surgeries the surgical field is small; thus, even a small amount of bleeding can obstruct the view of critical and extremely small structures. Additionally, relatively large vascular structures traverse the area; if they are encroached on by trauma or disease, bleeding must be controlled within a very small space in a meticulous fashion that does not encroach on structures of the middle ear and mastoid. The authors discuss several hemostatic agents in the middle ear, mastoid, and lateral skull base, highlighting their origins, mechanisms, advantages, and complications...

Last year (2015) marked the 50th Anniversary of the American Neurotology Society (ANS). The past 50 years has observed significant progress in the fields of otology and neurotology. Progress did not come without controversies and conflicts. Nonetheless, the ANS flourished throughout this time. To isolate the workings of the ANS from the broader fields of otology and neurotology would be impossible-members of the ANS were and continue to be the leaders in the field, and the topics presented at the ANS meetings reflect its leading edge...

BACKGROUND: The frequency with which a scientific article is cited by other studies is one way to measure its academic influence. METHODS: A comprehensive search was performed to identify journal articles in the otorhinolaryngology subject category of the 2013 Journal Citation Report Science Edition over the last 30 years (1985-2014). The 100 most cited articles were reviewed and basic information including the publication year, country of origin, source journal, article type and research field was collected...

INTRODUCTION: Facial nerve injury is a rare complication of middle ear surgery. To date there is no widely accepted consensus on the use of intraoperative facial nerve monitoring during middle ear surgery, whereas its use has been proved as a valuable adjunct in neurotologic surgery. The purpose of our study was to identify introperative facial nerve monitoring practice patterns in France for middle ear surgery. METHODS: A 19-item survey has been made up by three experienced otologists under the auspices of the French Otology and Neurotology Association...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To compare the complication rate for osseointegrated hearing aids (OIHA) in patients with or without irradiation. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case review. METHODS: We studied patients with OIHAs implanted between January 1, 2005, and July 15, 2013 in a tertiary university center with a referral otology and neurotology practice. Demographics, history of oncologic surgery, follow-up length after OIHA implantation, radiation history and dosage, postoperative complications, and chronologic relationship between oncologic resection, OIHA implantation, and irradiation were reviewed to collect information...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article aims to review relevant implications of obesity and associated comorbid conditions for the otology and neurotology surgical subspecialties. RECENT FINDINGS: Both the incidence and prevalence of obesity are rising worldwide. This condition, along with its many associated comorbidities, can adversely affect the perioperative management of patients undergoing otologic and neurotologic procedures. Preoperative assessment of the cardiopulmonary system and airway are imperative as compromise of either may lead to death...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To discuss effects of smoking on otologic surgery in an era of electronic (e-) cigarettes and proposals for legalization of marijuana. Physiologic mechanisms and clinical outcomes are presented. RECENT FINDINGS: Tobacco smoke can cause a variety of tissue effects that may adversely impact otologic surgery outcomes. Results in tympanoplasty using temporalis fascia are inferior in smokers compared with nonsmokers. More recent data show that in cartilage tympanoplasty, graft incorporation rates in smokers may approach those of nonsmokers...

This paper presents diagnostic criteria for Menière's disease jointly formulated by the Classification Committee of the Bárány Society, The Japan Society for Equilibrium Research, the European Academy of Otology and Neurotology (EAONO), the Equilibrium Committee of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) and the Korean Balance Society. The classification includes 2 categories: definite Menière's disease and probable Menière's disease. The diagnosis of definite Menière's disease is based on clinical criteria and requires the observation of an episodic vertigo syndrome associated with low-to medium-frequency sensorineural hearing loss and fluctuating aural symptoms (hearing, tinnitus and/or fullness) in the affected ear...

INTRODUCTION: The establishment of an individualized prognostic evaluation in patients with a diagnosis of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSHL) remains a difficult and imprecise task, due mostly to the variety of etiologies. Determining which variables have prognostic value in the initial assessment of the patient would be extremely useful in clinical practice. OBJECTIVE: To establish which variables identifiable at the onset of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss have prognostic value in the final hearing recovery...

Development of a consensus on the definitions and classification of cholesteatoma is essential for scientific community to exchange information on clinical studies and compare their outcomes. The aim of the study is to reach a consensus among members of the European Academy of Otology and Neurotology (EAONO) regarding the definitions and classification related to cholesteatoma. A set of statements was developed by the authors utilizing the literature on the definition and classification of cholesteatoma. A questionnaire was sent to the members of the EAONO, inviting them to state if they are in agreement with each of the statements and if not, then to provide comments or suggestions for revision...
