OBJECTIVE Canal wall down (CWD) tympanoplasty with soft-wall reconstruction (SWR) is a unique technique for cholesteatoma surgery. The external auditory canal shape after surgery-retracted like a radical mastoid cavity or preserved intact-depends on postoperative aeration in the mastoid cavity. However, the relationship between postoperative middle ear(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the incidence and localization of residual cholesteatomas in canal wall down tympanoplasty with soft-wall reconstruction with results with the canal wall down and open tympanoplasty or canal wall up tympanoplasty. DESIGN Retrospective case-series study. SETTING Tertiary care university hospital. PATIENTS Eighty-five patients (85(More)
CONCLUSION The present study indicates that recovery from Bell's palsy in a diabetic group (DG) is delayed, and the facial movement score remains low in comparison with a nondiabetic group (NDG). More aggressive treatments, such as higher-dose corticosteroid administration and/or facial nerve decompression surgery, might be considered in diabetic patients(More)
To establish a simple, reproducible procedure for studying facial motor nerve conduction (MNC), we determined the optimal electrode position to record evoked compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) from perioral muscles in normal subjects. We examined three new electrode positions in which the electrode connected to the one input of the amplifier was(More)
OBJECTIVES We compared the use of the pedicled temporoparietal fascial flap (TPFF) with the use of free deep temporal fascia (DTF) in soft-wall reconstruction after canal wall-down tympanoplasty. METHODS In the TPFF group (6 ears), the pedicled TPFF that includes the superficial temporal artery and vein was raised ipsilaterally and rotated into the(More)
The technique in endoscopic posterior septoplasty for the case of a female aged 49 with bilateral choanal stenosis is presented. This female had undergone endoscopic nasal surgery for stenosis twice before the posterior septoplasty. However, restenosis of the choanae had arisen within 2 weeks after each surgery. This patient underwent the endoscopic(More)
CONCLUSION The novel midline electroneurography (ENoG) method may have advantages over the standard method in terms of ease of electrode setting, and the ENoG value may be a useful prognostic factor. OBJECTIVE We compared ENoG performed in patients with facial palsy using two different methods--the new midline method and standard method--in terms of the(More)
