Otosclerosis is a primary osteodystrophy which affects a localized area within the human temporal bone. Hearing loss is the most functional deficit caused by otosclerosis. However, tinnitus is frequently reported by otosclerotic patients, especially in those patients with inner ear involvement. The best therapy in achieving a significant improvement is surgery - stapedoplasty. Analysis of early hearing results (1 month after surgery) shows efficiency of surgical treatment and improvement in… Expand

THE HEARING RESULTS IN OTOSCLEROSIS AFTER STAPEDOTOMY
TLDR
Evaluated results show that stapedotomy is a safe and effective modality for improving conductive hearing loss in otosclerotic patients and air-bone gaps of patients improved significantly after operation. Expand

TLDR
Primary stapedotomy was effective in improving short term hearing outcome in adults with clinical otosclerosis; in addition, the post operative hearing outcomes were not affected by the duration of the disease; but by an increase in the patient's age. Expand
Functional hearing results in patients with otosclerosis before and after stapedotomy.
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrated the applicability of stapedotomy as a method for successful management of otosclerosis. Expand
Evaluation of Hearing Results in Otosclerotic Patients after Stapedectomy
TLDR
Saccular dysfunction seems to be an important finding in SSNHL, although it is more prevalent in the patients with vertigo, it can be found in the non-dizzy cases. Expand
Early Audiometric Evaluations May Predict Cochlear Damage After Stapes Surgery
TLDR
Clinical and surgical records of 91 patients with otosclerosis were reviewed following stapedotomy with the small fenestra technique with the same Teflon-platinum piston without interposition to evaluate the presence or absence of cochlear symptoms. Expand
Audiometric evaluation after stapedotomy with Fisch titanium prosthesis.
TLDR
The Fisch-type titanium stapes piston prosthesis presented outcomes consistent with the literature and can be used safely in stapedotomy procedures. Expand
[Long term results stape surgery].
TLDR
The authors indicate the necessity of standardization of audiometric results post ear surgery as postoperative air-bone gap shows the improvement of air and bone thresholds obtained post stapedotomy versus preoperative air bone gap. Expand
Predictive Role of Audiological and Clinical Features for Functional Results after Stapedotomy
TLDR
The accurate knowledge of predictive factors is a valuable tool that permits the surgeon to plan surgery with a better case selection as well as assisting in counseling the patient with regard to the likelihood of success of the procedure. Expand
Evidence of increased average age of patients with otosclerosis.
TLDR
There was an increase in the average age of patients with clinical otosclerosis from the eighties to the nineties and the gender distribution showed no statistically significant variation, which might reflect an improved health consciousness among the elder population or could be the result of increased health awareness in the seventies and eighties.

Prevalence of histologic otosclerosis: an unbiased temporal bone study in Caucasians.
TLDR
The gross observation of temporal bone slices combined with microradiography was used to screen for otosclerotic lesions more rapidly and with a lower cost-benefit ratio than previous studies based on laboratory collections. Expand
