CONCLUSIONS A total of 330 cases of adult cholesteatoma were operated with canal-wall down (CWD) and total reconstruction procedure (TRP) without staging. Independent of preoperative middle ear conditions, cholesteatoma extent and localization, long-term improvement of hearing with a low incidence of residual and recurrent disease were achieved. (More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to analyse long-term results after surgery of acquired (ACH) and congenital cholesteatoma (CCH) of the middle ear in children and compare these with adults. METHODS Computer-based analysis of consecutively operated paediatric patients for ACH and CCH in a tertiary referral centre was made in 57 cases under the age of 12(More)
CONCLUSION Non-echo planar (non-EPI) diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) increases the number of detected cholesteatoma after one-step canal wall-down (CWD) obliteration surgery for cholesteatoma compared with clinical evaluation alone. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of DW-MRI for detection of cholesteatoma after surgical treatment(More)
CONCLUSION Functional hearing results with round window vibroplasty in chronically disabled middle ears were comparable and, at high frequencies, superior to the results achieved with previously used conventional hearing aids even after extended surgery. Soft tissue transfer appears to be more important than floating mass transducer (FMT) alignment with the(More)
CONCLUSION Hearing restoration using an active middle ear implant (AMEI) is a highly cost-effective treatment for a selected group of patients with no other possibilities for auditory rehabilitation. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the cost-utility of using an AMEI for hearing rehabilitation. METHODS This was a prospective, multicenter, single-subject repeated(More)
The Editors and publisher gratefully acknowledge the excellent work performed by our reviewers. The quality of a journal is definitely depending on the review process. The work laid down by our reviewers is essential for the increasing interest of our journal within ORL-HNS in Europe and outside. We are sure that we have a common interest to make European(More)
CONCLUSION Surgery candidacy based on the surgical accessibility of the middle ear seems more valuable than the use of a preoperative grading system. Also patients with severe malformations can benefit from surgical reconstruction. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the long-term results of the primary surgical treatment of patients with congenital auricular atresia(More)
