CONCLUSIONS Vestibulotomy above a severely displaced facial nerve represents a new surgical approach to achieve serviceable hearing. The lack of facial nerve injury and the potential for hearing restoration make this procedure feasible in patients who would otherwise be marginal or poor surgical candidates. OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility of(More)
CONCLUSIONS The facial nerve courses shown by preoperative CT imaging coincide with the surgical findings in most congenital aural atresia cases. CT scanning is critical in evaluation of a patient's candidacy for atresia surgery. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the diagnostic value of preoperative CT scanning of the facial nerve course in congenital aural atresia.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate approaches of diagnosis and therapy to hemangioma of external ear and improve the effects of diagnosis and therapy. METHOD Eight cases of hemangioma of external ear were analyzed retrospectively. All patients were unilateral hemangioma. 5 were performed digital subtraction angiography (DSA) before operation, of which 3 were(More)
BACKGROUND Otitis media with effusion (OME) is a disease with complicated pathogeneses which are not clearly known. Increasing interest has been focused on immunological cells, cytokines and their roles in chronic inflammatory states. This study was designed to disclose the existence and roles of interleukin-10 (IL-10) and transforming growth factor beta1(More)
OBJECTIVE Cochlear microphonic responses (CMs) were measured in a rabbit model in the intact ear (CM1) and in ears with a partially implantable piezoelectric middle ear implant (P-MEI) (CM2) to investigate the characteristics of speech transmission of the P-MEI in vivo. DESIGN The spectra of pure tones, voices, and elicited CM1 and CM2 obtained from the(More)
CONCLUSIONS Auricle reconstruction combined with hearing reconstruction can help patients with microtia to obtain practical hearing improvement as well as cosmetic improvement. The integrated procedures can facilitate the incision design and obtain a natural-looking three-dimensional shape of the reconstruction auricle. OBJECTIVES To discuss the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of Vibrant Soundbridge (VSB) implantation. METHODS In accordance with the indications for VSB implantation, surgeries were done for two patients who suffered from either a sensorineural or conductive hearing loss (microtia). Their preoperative auditory thresholds (0.5, 1, 2 and 4 kHz) were 56 dB HL and 61 dB HL. The VSB(More)
CONCLUSION Application of the Vibrant Soundbridge to the round window (RW) membrane can be utilized as an efficient therapy for congenital oval window (OW) atresia. OBJECTIVE To report the surgical technique and auditory outcome of an active middle ear implant (AMEI) system used in patients with congenital OW atresia. METHODS Nine subjects with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of vibrant sound bridge implantation in microtia whose reconstructive external auditory canal occurred atresia. METHOD Three cases (2 males and 1 female) of microtia had underwent hearing reconstruction operation (Include the external ear canal reconstructive surgery and tympanoplasty). The age ranged from 15 to 18(More)
