OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Despite the enthusiasm of recent short-term reviews, no center in the United States has published results meeting American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery guidelines with titanium-based prostheses. The purpose of the study was threefold. The first purpose was to review results with a titanium prosthesis system in cases(More)
Congenital cholesteatoma has a different pathophysiology than acquired cholesteatoma in that these patients rarely have eustachian tube dysfunction. This likely accounts for their reasonable preoperative hearing and their lack of complications or recurrences postoperatively. The most important factor is early detection. Treatment remains surgical removal.
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To determine whether smokers and former smokers have different outcomes of otologic surgery compared to nonsmokers. Smokers have been shown to have worse outcomes in other surgeries, including facial plastics procedures, and it is hypothesized that they will have worse outcomes after ear surgery. Former smokers benefit from reduced(More)
OBJECTIVE Auricular defects are challenging to reconstruct with native tissue. We describe operative techniques and complication management for patients undergoing osseointegrated implants for auriculectomy defects and microtia. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS All patients at Duke University Medical Center with auricular defects treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether the appearance of the inner ear on T2-weighted follow-up magnetic resonance imaging correlates with hearing status after hearing-preservation surgery for vestibular schwannoma. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review. SETTING Tertiary referral medical center. PATIENTS The study includes patients undergoing(More)
OBJECTIVE We examined staff utilization and procedure length for percutaneous and open bedside tracheostomies in an intensive care setting. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical outcomes study. METHODS Intensive care unit (ICU) tracheostomy consults meeting criteria for bedside procedures were randomized to open or percutaneous procedures. The Cook(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Surgery has been the most common treatment for acoustic neuromas, but gamma knife radiosurgery has emerged as a safe and efficacious alternative to microsurgery. This meta-analysis compares the outcomes of the two modalities. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective MEDLINE search was used to find all surgical and gamma knife studies published(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Our goal was to determine whether preoperative MR imaging of facial muscles predicts facial function after facial nerve grafting. METHODS A retrospective review of all patients undergoing facial nerve grafting between 1997 and 2001 revealed 26 patients. Twelve of the patients had adequate preoperative MR images available for review(More)
OBJECTIVE To report results of revision chronic ear surgery following guidelines of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and to establish expectations for infection and cholesteatoma control and hearing outcomes. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case review of all patients who underwent revision chronic ear surgery from January 1, 1990(More)
Glomus tumors provide unique surgical challenges for both tumor resection and defect reconstruction. Tumors with intracranial extension compound these challenges. Surgical techniques have evolved, and now, with a multidisciplinary team, single-stage surgeries are the standard. In this paper the authors will report the results of the Otology Group protocol(More)
