OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to investigate whether findings detected by temporomandibular joint magnetic resonance imaging (TMJ-MRI) can provide pathognomonic evidence of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in patients with nonspecific ear fullness (EF). The association of nonspecific EF with clinical characteristics of TMD based on TMJ-MRI findings was examined. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis. METHODS: Thirty-four subjects (42 ears) who had no detectable otologic problems as a cause of EF were enrolled in this study...

CONCLUSION: The endoscopy ensures good surgical exposure of hidden areas, frequently sites of residual cholesteatoma. Also, the minimally invasive endoscopic approach is more respectful of anatomy and functionality of the middle ear, restoring and preserving mastoid mucosa, with faster healing time. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the benefits that the systematic use of endoscopy in middle ear surgery has made. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort studies...

CONCLUSION: Patients with incapacitating Meniere Disease (MD) suffer in their daily lives and activities because of the dizziness and anxiety induced by MD. Minimally Invasive Vestibular Neurotomy (MIVN) is a safe and effective surgical treatment for these individuals, and improved their dizziness and anxiety. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess the state of dizziness and anxiety of patients with incapacitating MD and its improvement through MIVN. METHOD: A total of 118 patients with incapacitating MD who underwent MIVN in France and Japan were evaluated...

CONCLUSION: This study evaluated the efficacy of concurrent administration of ITSI and systemic steroids in delayed treatment of NIHL after gunshot noise exposure. The results showed additional hearing benefits with administration of ITSI. Further evaluation is warranted to confirm this efficacy.

DATA SOURCES: An electronic search performed in the PubMed, Cochrane Library, and EMBASE databases on 15th of September 2015. A systematic search was conducted. Articles were included if written in English, Dutch, German, or French language...

OBJECTIVE: Endoscopic procedures are becoming common in middle ear surgery. Inflammation due to chronic ear disease can cause bony erosion of the carotid artery and Fallopian canals, making them more vulnerable during surgery. The objective of this study was to determine whether or not chronic ear disease increases dehiscence of the carotid artery and Fallopian canals. DESIGN: Comparative human temporal bone study. SETTING: Otopathology laboratory...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy and safety of endoscopic middle ear paraganglioma (glomus tympanicum) resection. STUDY DESIGN: Case series with chart review. SETTING: Multi-institutional tertiary university medical centers. PATIENTS: Adult patients with middle ear paragangliomas treated via a transcanal endoscopic approach from 1/2012 to 11/2015. INTERVENTION: All tumors were initially approached via a transcanal endoscopic technique...

OBJECTIVE: Transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) can provide greater visual access during resection of middle ear disease than the operating microscope. The purpose of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of TEES when used for the management of congenital cholesteatoma (CC) in children. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case review. SETTING: Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS: Twelve children with CC confined to the middle ear underwent TEES...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of a color-mapped diffusion-weighted image combined with a computed tomography scan (CMDWI-CT) in preoperatively evaluating the anatomical location of cholesteatomas and determining whether a patient is indicated for transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) to reduce intraoperative switching to microscopic ear surgery (MES). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective case study. SETTING: A single university hospital. PATIENTS: Fifty-five patients scheduled for middle ear cholesteatoma surgery...

CONCLUSION: Based on the results of this study, it is believed that, in appropriate patients with tympanic membrane perforation, the endoscopic butterfly cartilage myringoplasty can be applied, with a shorter operation time, high graft success rate, and low risk of complications. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of the endoscopic butterfly cartilage myringoplasty in terms of the graft success rate and hearing gain. METHODS: Forty-five ears of the 42 patients who were subjected to endoscopic butterfly cartilage myringoplasty surgery between January 2013 and December 2014 were included in this study...

OBJECTIVES: To retrospectively determine the size of the external auditory canal (EAC) in a pediatric population and to describe our experience with transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) in this pediatric population which had been successfully treated for middle ear disease using TEES. METHODS: We analyzed 31 patients ranging in age from 2 to 13 years old (median: 7.6 years) with middle ear disease who underwent TEES between November 2011 and August 2014. Sixteen of these patients had surgery for cholesteatomas; 11 for chronic otitis media; and 4 for malformation of the middle ear...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Endoscopic ear surgery provides a minimally invasive approach to the middle ear. The disadvantage of endoscopic ear surgery is that it is a single-handed surgical technique. The nondominant hand of the surgeon is utilized for holding and manipulating the endoscope. This necessitated the need for the development of an endoscope holder that would allow both hands to be free for surgical manipulation. The aim of this article is to report our preliminary experience using our newly designed and developed endoscope holder, which allowed us to perform cartilage tympanoplasty utilizing both hands for surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Transcanal myringoplasty has the advantages of demanding lower operative time and minimal external incisions. It can be performed using the microscopic or endoscopic approach. In the last decade, the use of endoscopes in ear surgery has increased significantly. This technique may allow "around the corner" visualization of small recesses, through narrow spaces, without the aid of canalplasty in unfavorable ear canals. OBJECTIVE: To describe a case series of transcanal endoscopic myringoplasty performed in a university service...

OBJECTIVE: Routine endoscopic examination during primary surgery decreased the rate of residual cholesteatoma to 18% in our early experience. Based on this, we stopped performing routine second-look surgery in children who were endoscopically free of cholesteatoma at the end of primary surgery. We sought to investigate if second-look procedures after endoscopic-assisted surgery could safely be performed only in children at a high risk of residual disease (extensive inflammation, spontaneously ruptured or fragmented cholesteatoma, residual disease intentionally left)...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the results of a newly introduced technique to our Department of endoscopic assisted transcanal myringoplasty applied in tympanic membrane perforation in children of any age and compare them to that of the previously standard microscopic assisted myringoplasty technique. METHODS: A retrospective study of myringoplasties performed between January 2005 and June 2014 in children suffering from chronic otitis media with perforation. In microscope-assisted cases, a transcanal approach was applied when the anterior tympanic annulus was completely visible through the ear speculum, and a postauricular approach was used in all other cases...

The aim of this study is to investigate the contribute of the endoscopic exclusive transcanalar approach for the management of stapes malformations. A retrospective chart review was made at our tertiary referral centers. 17 patients with stapes malformations underwent surgery with endoscopic exclusive transcanal approach. A complete audiological and radiological assessment before and after surgery was performed. 12/17 (70 %) underwent a surgical endoscopic correction, In case of fixed platina underwent five endoscopic stapedotomy and one endoscopic stapedectomy were performed...

The objective of this work was to study the effect of nocturnal intermittent hypoxia on auditory function of simple snoring patients and subjects affected by OSAS; we compared the audiologic profile with the severity of OSAS to detect early signs of cochlear damage. One hundred-sixty patients underwent overnight polysomnography, micro-otoscopy, multi-frequency audiometry, acufenometry, TEOAE recording and d-ROMs test. All subjects were divided in four groups, based on presence/absence of AHI (simple snoring without OSAS, mild OSAS, moderate OSAS, severe OSAS)...
