That condition where the tympanic membrane is displaced toward the promontory is termed atelectasis. Thirty-seven patients (61 ears) showing various degrees of atelectasis graded from stage 1 to stage 4 were studied. Atelectatic drums are an inflammatory phenomenon occurring in underventilated ears. This conclusion is reached by considering the reversibility of the atelectasis upon ventilation; while the inflammatory factor can be deduced from the history and histopathology of the atelectatic…

Pneumatization Pattern and Status of the Mastoid Antrum in Chronic Otitis Media: A Review

It is indicated that persistent inflammation of the middle ear in children inhibits pneumatization of the temporal bone, which is a significant factor in the establishment of a COM-like retraction pocket in inactive squamosal disease.

Long-term effects of otitis media with effusion: otomicroscopic findings.

A duration-response effect was found in the association between preschool OME and these sequelae at school age, and the high prevalence of otoscopic abnormalities found in this population calls for further follow-up and evaluation of their functional implications.

LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF OTITIS MEDIA WITH EFFUSION: OTOMICROSCOPIC FINDINGS

A cohort of 946 children who were screened for otitis media with effusion (OME) by serial tympanometry from the age of 2 to 4 years was followed up by otomicroscopy at 7.5 to 8 years of age, finding a duration-response effect in the association between preschool OME and these sequelae at school age.

Does early surgical intervention of middle ear atelectasis improve long-term results and prevent cholesteatoma?

Although atelectasis in itself is a benign disease, the potential risk of cholesteatoma or ossicular erosion has led many otologists to believe that patients who initially presented with atrophy and myringopexy may persist or progress to more severe stages of adhesive disease.

Refractory Otitis Media with Effusion and Cholesteatoma.

The relationship between refractory otitis media with effusion (OME) and acquired aural cholesteatoma was examined from the aspects of eustachian tube function and concurrent upper respiratory tract inflammatory conditions and results suggest a pathologic relationship betweenRefractory OME and cholESTeatoma.

Histologic Study in Adhesive Otitis Media

The morphological differences in TM and middle ear mucosa between normal human and patients of chronic adhe­ sive otitis is elucidated to elucidate the morphological changes in adhesive otitis and normal human middle ear and T M.

Pathogenesis of Attic Cholesteatomas 1

The possibility that an attic cholesteatoma often arises primarily in the attic and presents itself secondarily in the external canal as a ‘perforated’ epidermoid cyst, is to be considered.

The natural history of chronic otitis media

It is proposed that the bacterial infection encountered in what is termed 'chronic otitis media' is often a secondary infection of a primary perforated tympanic membrane, the perforation originating or persisting in underventilated ears, and having arisen from various causes--some of them as yet unknown.

Bone destruction in chronic otitis media

It was apparent that bone destruction is quite common in chronic otitis media both with and without cholesteatoma, and histologic findings in ossicles removed, because of destruction, during surgery in cases of chronic Otitis media were compared.

The aetiology of bone destruction in chronic otitis media

It is shown that, in fact, bone destruction occurs commonly in simple chronic otitis media and what can be learned from the relationship of the destroyed bone region to the cholesteatomatous and to the inflammatory processes is learned.
