jugular vein bulb and ear development

R E Redfern, M Brown, A G Benson
OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of high jugular bulb in a group of patients with definite Ménière's disease, and to investigate whether the position or size of the jugular bulb is significantly different in the affected ear than in the unaffected ear. METHODS: Retrospective review of patient charts, audiograms, and computed tomography scans to determine the position and size of the jugular bulb in the affected and contralateral ears, as well as other abnormalities...

Temporal bone abnormalities such as hypoplasia of the vestibular aqueduct or hypopneumatization of the mastoid have been described in Meniere's disease (MD). Jugular bulb abnormalities (JBA) are one of the most common temporal bone abnormalities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of JBA in MD. Radiological data obtained by temporal bone high-resolution computed tomography of 200 ears of 167 MD patients (MD group) and 218 ears of 109 patients with normal inner ear function (control group) were analyzed retrospectively...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: CHARGE (Coloboma of the eye, Heart defects, Atresia of the choanae, Retardation of growth and/or development, Genital and/or urinary abnormalities, and Ear abnormalities and/or deafness) syndrome is a genetic disorder with prominent otolaryngologic features including choanal atresia and inner ear malformations. Recent experience with venous malformations during cochlear implant surgery prompted this study to define the spectrum of venous abnormalities in CHARGE and their surgical implications in otology...

OBJECTIVE: To further define the spectrum of clinical presentation and explore the histologic sequelae of jugular bulb abnormalities (JBAs). DESIGN: Retrospective review. SETTING: Academic medical center. PATIENTS: Thirty patients with radiologic evidence of inner ear dehiscence by JBA. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Thirty patients with radiologic inner ear dehiscence by JBA and 1579 temporal bone specimens were evaluated for consequences from JBA...

OBJECTIVE: Jugular bulb (JB) abnormalities such as JB diverticulum and high-riding JBs of the temporal bone can erode into the inner ear and present with hearing loss, vestibular disturbance, and pulsatile tinnitus. Their cause and potential to progress remain to be studied. This comprehensive radiologic study investigates the postnatal development of the venous system from transverse sinus to internal jugular vein (IJV). SETTING: Academic medical center. PATIENTS, INTERVENTION, MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Measurements of the transverse and sigmoid sinus, the JB, IJV, and carotid artery were made from computed tomographic scans of the neck with intravenous contrast in infants (n = 5), children (n = 13), adults (n = 35), and the elderly (n = 15)...

The purpose of this study was to determine the quantitative relationships between the positions of the sigmoid sinus (SS) and jugular bulb (JB) and the influence of mastoid pneumatization upon these structures. The investigations were carried out on 116 healthy adult ears based on the axial images of computed tomography (CT). The reference system locating the displacements of the SS and JB was established and the shape and position of the SS and JB were measured. The volume of pneumatization was quantitatively measured based on the serial digital images of CT...

Temporal bone CT was used to examine a group of 87 patients with chronic purulent otitis media (103 temporal bones). The patients' age ranged from 2 to 74 years. A scheme was developed and proposed to evaluate the temporal bone by CT. The CT signs of chronic purulent otitis media uncomplicated by cholesteatoma and those of cholesteatomic purulent otitis were identified. The CT symptomatology of chronic purulent otitis includes: sclerotic changes in the bone tissue of the mastoid process, impaired pneumatization of the cavities of the middle ear, including the tympanic cavity, destructive changes in auditory ossicles, carious changes in the walls of the cavities of the middle ear...

BACKGROUND: Endolymphatic sac tumours (ELST) have only been known as own tumour entities since 1984. ELST might occur solitarily and sporadically as well as hereditary connected to von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL). This connection has been observed in 1992 for the first time and confirmed by molecular genetic analyses of the VHL gen. There is no agreement yet concerning diagnostics and therapy. METHODS: Our attempt of classifying this type of tumour is the first one...

OBJECT: Tumors of the glomus jugulare are benign, slow-growing paragangliomas. Their natural history, surgical treatment, and outcome have been well addressed in the recent literature; however, there remains a subgroup of complex tumors--multiple, giant, malignant, neuropeptide-secreting lesions, and those treated previously by an intervention with an adverse outcome--that is high risk, presents surgical challenges, and is associated with treatment controversy. In this article the authors report on a series of patients with complex glomus jugulare tumors and focus on treatment decisions, avoidance of complications, surgical refinements, and patient outcomes...

44 cases of tympanic involvement in the context of chronic otitis are described. 34 occurred during active chronic otitis. This is a rare possibility (approximately 4% of our own cases of chronic otitis). The following may be mentioned amongst them: 21 cases of osteitis, for which the following concepts should be borne in mind: the extreme severity of the chronic otitis responsible, in most instances, ears which had undergone multiple surgery (17/21), lesions exclusively of osteitis, but very extensive in 2/3 of cases (14/21)...
