The benefit of trans-attic endoscopic control of ossicular prosthesis after cholesteatoma surgery.

Laryngoscope 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

ENT Department, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar.

Objective: To show the efficiency of using transmastoid atticotomy (TMA) endoscopy on the outcome of ossiculoplasty in patients with cholesteatoma. TMA is often performed as part of the surgical management of patients with middle ear cholesteatoma extending to the epitympanum. TMA can also be used as an access for endoscopic view to confirm the right alignment and stability of the ossicular prosthesis because the reconstruction of the tympanic membrane will obscure the visualization of the prosthesis.

Objectives: One reason for insufficient hearing improvement with a distinct air-bone gap after ossiculoplasty with implantation of partial or total ossicular replacement prostheses can be the dislocation or minimal shifting of the prosthesis. The aim of this study was the simulation of common clinical borderline situations with minimal shifting of the prosthesis in temporal bone specimens after ossiculoplasty. It was furthermore the goal to identify these specific situations through imaging by cone beam computed tomography (cbCT) and direct visual inspection using the operation microscope. Read More

Comparison of endoscopic and microscopic tympanoplasty.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2017 Jul 24;274(7):2727-2732. Epub 2017 Apr 24.

Otolaryngology Department, Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital, No. 95, Wen Chang Road, Shih Lin District, Taipei, Taiwan.

Tympanoplasty was conventionally performed using a microscope for decades. However, since the endoscope began to be used in middle ear surgery in the 1970s, endoscopic tympanoplasty has gained increasing attention. The main objective of this study was to compare endoscopic and microscopic tympanoplasty with and without ossiculoplasty, demonstrating the potential advantages, disadvantages, and outcomes of each.

Morphological Variations of Middle Ear Ossicles and its Clinical Implications.

J Clin Diagn Res 2017 Jan 1;11(1):AC01-AC04. Epub 2017 Jan 1.

Professor and Head, Department of Anatomy, Calcutta National Medical College , Kolkata, West Bengal, India .

Introduction: The middle ear ossicles form a semi rigid chain in the middle of the ear for conduction and amplification of sound waves from the tympanic membrane to the inner ear. Although, our knowledge of the ear ossicles dates back to the 15 century, and various studies have been carried out on their morphometry, morphology, anomalies, embryology, function and structure throughout the world, information about the morphology of middle ear ossicles is meagre in Indian subjects.

Aim: To find out the morphological variations of middle ear ossicles of right and left sides. Read More

Department of Otorhinolaryngology,Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College,Belagavi,India.

Objective: This study aimed to compare the functional and anatomical outcomes of ossiculoplasty using an autograft incus or a titanium partial ossicular replacement prosthesis for reconstructing Austin type A ossicular defects.

Methods: Patients with Austin A ossicular defects were randomly divided into two groups: one group underwent ossiculoplasty with an autologous incus (the autologous incus group) and the other underwent ossiculoplasty with a titanium partial ossicular replacement prosthesis (the titanium prosthesis group). Otoscopic examination and audiological assessment was done pre-operatively and at 3, 6 and 12 months post-operatively. Read More

Fatigue analysis of tympanic membrane after ossiculoplasty.

Acta Otolaryngol 2017 Jul 26;137(7):679-685. Epub 2017 Jan 26.

c Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology , Karolinska Institutet , Stockholm , Sweden.

Conclusion: A tentative conclusion was made that the finite element method can be used to investigate the fatigue life of the tympanic membrane after ossiculoplasty; the main reason of the extrusion of the tympanic membrane may not be blamed to the fatigue mechanism under normal sound pressure.

Objective: This study was to investigate the extrusion of the prosthesis from the tympanic membrane at post-ossiculoplasty by finite element method.

Methods: A finite element model of the human middle ear has been constructed and used as the model of the constructed middle ear at post-ossiculoplasty. Read More

[The application of the biologically compatible cyanacrylate-based glue for ossiculoplasty in the patients presenting with chronic otitis media].

Vestn Otorinolaringol 2016;81(5):57-58

Kubansky State Medical University, Russian Ministry of Health, Krasnodar, Russia, 3500063.

The objective of the study was to improve the functional outcomes of the treatment in the patients presenting with chronic otitis media by means of the combined application of platelet-enriched plasma and the biologically compatible cyanacrylate-based glue for the fixation of the reconstructed auditory ossicular chain. The functional results of the surgery were evaluated within 1, 3, and12 months after the intervention making use of tonal threshold audiometry. It was shown that the use of the platelet-enriched plasma with its subsequent fixation by the biologically compatible cyanacrylate-based glue enhances stability of the implanted prosthetic elements, reduces the risk of their displacement during the postoperative period due to the formation of the cicatrical tissue between the structural components of the middle ear.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, California, U.S.A..

Objectives/hypothesis: The performance of an ossicular replacement prosthesis (ORP) is influenced by its alignment and appropriate tension between the tympanic membrane and the stapes footplate. A novel ORP with a flexible element that potentially allows for length adjustment in situ is presented and tested for acoustic performance.

Study Design: Laser Doppler vibrometry in fresh human cadaveric temporal bones was used to test the acoustic performance of the adjustable ORP relative to standard prostheses used for ossiculoplasty. Read More
