On the other hand, otosclerotic patients, whose middle ears are usually exceptionally well aerated, also have excellent mastoid pneumatization. Three unusual cases are presented, in which partial atelectasis developed in stapedectomized patients. In each case the mastoid was later found to be nonpneumatized, and further analysis revealed that their stapes fixation had in… CONTINUE READING
