OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To analyze cost and compare cholesteatoma recidivism and hearing outcomes with single-stage and second-look operative strategies. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review and cost analysis. METHODS: Adult and pediatric patients who underwent a tympanoplasty with mastoidectomy for cholesteatoma with a single-stage or second-look operative strategy were identified. Variables included procedure approach, residual or recurrent cholesteatoma, ossicular chain reconstruction frequency, and operative complications...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare hearing results in patients undergoing ossiculoplasty with bone cement (BC) vs partial ossicular replacement prosthesis (PORP) in cases of incudostapedial discontinuity during tympanoplasty surgeries. STUDY DESIGN: Case series with chart review. SETTING: Tertiary referral center. SUBJECTS: A total of 44 patients with incudostapedial discontinuity, 21 operated on with BC and 23 operated on with PORP, were enrolled in this study...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Approach-specific economic data of acoustic neuroma (AN) resection is lacking. The purpose of this study was to analyze and compare adjusted total hospital costs, hospital and intensive care unit (ICU) length of stay (LOS), and associated factors in AN patients undergoing resection by translabyrinthine (TL) approach versus retrosigmoid (RS) approach. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart review. METHODS: A total of 113 patients with AN undergoing TL (N = 43) or RS (N = 70) surgical resection between 1999 and 2012 were analyzed...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Evidence-based medicine in otolaryngology literature continues to be lacking, especially with regard to new products brought to market. The marketing of products often includes statements of benefit that have limited objective support in research or literature. To address this, and to adequately determine product equivalency/superiority, careful evaluation must be made. In order to establish standards for this process in rhinology products, we directly compare three different absorbable hemostatic agents in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) after undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS), using both objective and subjective outcomes...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: In large international studies, upper airway-related stenosis, granulomas, malacias, and laryngeal nerve palsies following percutaneous tracheostomy have an estimated incidence of 6% to 31%. The incidence following prolonged oral intubation is estimated to be 10% to 22%. The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence of late complications in our unit. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective search of a single-unit intensive care patient population...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To determine whether speech recognition scores (SRS) differ between adults with long-term auditory deprivation in the implanted ear and adults who received cochlear implant (CI) in the nonsound-deprived ear, either for hearing aid-assisted or due to rapidly deteriorating hearing loss. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. METHODS: Speech recognition scores at evaluations (3 and 14 months postimplantation) conducted with CI alone at 60-dB sound pressure level intensity were compared in 15 patients (4 with bilateral severe hearing loss; 11 with asymmetric hearing loss, 7 of which had contralateral hearing aid), all with long-term auditory deprivation (mean duration 16...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of type 1 tympanoplasty with one-piece composite cartilage-perichondrium (CCP) grafts compared to temporalis fascia (TF) grafts for tympanic membrane (TM) closure and hearing improvement in adult patients with a subtotal TM perforation and chronic otitis media (COM). DATA SOURCES: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library. REVIEW METHODS: A systematic search was conducted. Relevance and validity of selected articles were assessed...
