Spontaneous CSF otorrhea caused by abnormal development of the facial nerve canal. (1/30)

In two patients with surgically proved CSF fistula through the facial nerve canal, MR and CT examinations showed smooth enlargement of the geniculate fossa with CSF signal. In the clinical setting of CSF otorrhea or rhinorrhea, the presence of an enlarged labyrinthine facial nerve canal and enlarged geniculate fossa on CT scans and CSF intensity on MR images strongly suggests a CSF fistula through the facial nerve canal.  (+info)

Evaluation of CSF leaks: high-resolution CT compared with contrast-enhanced CT and radionuclide cisternography. (2/30)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Radiologic evaluation of CSF leaks is a diagnostic challenge that often involves multiple imaging studies with the associated expense and patient discomfort. We evaluated the use of screening noncontrast high-resolution CT in identifying the presence and site of CSF rhinorrhea and otorrhea and compared it with contrast-enhanced CT cisternography and radionuclide cisternography. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the imaging studies and medical records of all patients who were evaluated for CSF leak during a 7-year period. Forty-two patients with rhinorrhea and/or otorrhea underwent high-resolution CT of the face or temporal bone and then had CT cisternography and radionuclide cisternography via lumbar puncture. The results of the three studies were compared and correlated with the surgical findings in 21 patients. RESULTS: High-resolution CT showed bone defects in 30 of 42 patients (71%) with CSF leak. High-resolution, radionuclide cisternography and CT cisternography did not show bone defects or CSF leak for 12 patients (29%) who had clinical evidence of CSF leak. Among the 30 patients with bone defects, 20 (66%) had positive results of their radionuclide cisternography and/or CT cisternography. For the 21 patients who underwent surgical exploration and repair, intraoperative findings correlated with the defects revealed by high-resolution CT in all cases. High-resolution CT identified significantly more patients with CSF leak than did radionuclide cisternography and CT cisternography, with a moderate degree of agreement. CONCLUSION: Noncontrast high-resolution CT showed a defect in 70% of the patients with CSF leak. No radionuclide cisternography or CT cisternography study produced positive results without previous visualization of a defect on high-resolution CT. CT cisternography and radionuclide cisternography may be reserved for patients in whom initial high-resolution CT does not identify a bone defect or for patients with multiple fractures or postoperative defects.  (+info)

Prevention of cerebrospinal fluid leakage and delayed loss of preserved hearing after vestibular schwannoma removal: reconstruction of the internal auditory canal in the suboccipital transmeatal approach--technical note. (3/30)

The suboccipital transmeatal approach uses packing of a muscle or fat graft into the internal auditory canal (IAC) to prevent postoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage. However, preserved hearing after removal of vestibular schwannomas may decline over time because of the progressive constriction of cochlear vascular supply due to scarring of the IAC. We propose a surgical technique for IAC reconstruction, which separates the preserved cochlear nerve and vasculature from the graft, and regains the CSF space in the IAC. Prior to the drilling of the posterior wall of the IAC, the dura mater of the petrous bone forming the posterior wall of the IAC is harvested for IAC reconstruction. After completion of tumor removal, a "roof" of the IAC is reconstructed using the dura mater, and a muscle or fat graft soaked with fibrin glue is placed on the "roof" of the IAC. The IAC was reconstructed using this technique in 26 consecutive patients with vestibular schwannomas who underwent tumor removal via the suboccipital transmeatal approach. Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the regained CSF space in the IAC. No delayed hearing loss occurred in four patients with preserved hearing. No CSF leakage occurred after surgery. This new technique of IAC reconstruction may prevent delayed hearing loss as well as postoperative CSF leakage after removal of vestibular schwannomas via the suboccipital transmeatal approach.  (+info)

Characterization of chemical meningitis after neurological surgery. (4/30)

We reviewed the records of 70 consecutive adult patients with meningitis after a neurosurgical procedure, to determine the characteristics that might help to distinguish a sterile postoperative chemical meningitis from bacterial infection. The spinal fluid profiles in bacterial and chemical meningitis are similar. The exceptions are that a spinal fluid white blood cell count > 7500/microL (7500 x 10(6)/L) and a glucose level of < 10 mg/dL were not found in any case of chemical meningitis. The clinical setting and clinical manifestations were distinct enough that no antibiotic was administered after lumbar puncture to 30 (43%) of the 70 patients with postoperative meningitis. Chemical meningitis was infrequent after surgery involving the spine and sinuses. Patients with chemical meningitis did not have purulent wound drainage or significant wound erythema or tenderness, coma, new focal neurological findings, or onset of a new seizure disorder. They rarely had temperatures > 39.4 degrees C or cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea or otorrhea.  (+info)

A new nephelometric assay for beta-trace protein (prostaglandin D synthase) as an indicator of liquorrhoea. (5/30)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of a nephelometric beta-trace protein assay for the diagnosis of liquorrhoea. METHODS: One hundred and forty clinical samples with suspected liquorrhoea were analysed by a newly developed nephelometric assay. An established electroimmunoassay served as a reference method. The sensitivity and specificity of the beta-trace nephelometric assay were calculated by a 2x2 contingency table for 10 different versions of a dichotomised nephelometric variable. In 52 patients (79 samples), the nephelometric findings were validated by referring to the clinical diagnosis based on the course of the disease, imaging techniques, and surgical inspection. RESULTS: Given a specificity of 100%, a beta-trace protein concentration of 6 mg/l or higher in a sample indicated liquorrhoea with a sensitivity of 92% compared with the reference method and of 93% compared with the clinical evaluation. The relation between the electroimmunoassay and the nephelometric assay was highly significant (p<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The nephelometric beta-trace protein assay is a simple and rapid method for the detection of liquorrhoea with high sensitivity and specificity and may facilitate the diagnosis of fistulas leaking CSF.  (+info)

Prognostic significance of changes in the internal acoustic meatus caused by vestibular schwannoma. (6/30)

The prognostic significance of the variety of changes in the internal auditory meatus (IAM) caused by vestibular schwannoma was retrospectively analyzed in 69 consecutive patients with vestibular schwannoma. Preoperative bone-window computed tomography was used to classify IAM changes into extensive destruction (17%), widening (46%), and normal IAM (36%). Extensive destruction (47 +/- 19 years) and widening (48 +/- 13) occurred in significantly younger patients than normal IAM (59 +/- 9). Preoperative hearing was significantly more severely disturbed in patients with extensive destruction than in those with widening or normal IAM. IAM change was significantly related to the tumor consistency, as normal IAM was more common in patients with cystic tumor than in those with solid tumor. Postoperative hearing and facial function were worse in patients with severe IAM change, although the relationship between the IAM change and the surgical result was not significant. One patient with extensive destruction developed postoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage through the air cells around the IAM, and needed surgical repair. Severe IAM change occurs with solid tumor and causes severely disturbed preoperative hearing in younger patients, which reflects the tumor aggressiveness. Severe IAM change increases the technical difficulty of tumor removal and the risk of postoperative CSF leakage, and is associated with a poorer prognosis for patients with vestibular schwannoma.  (+info)

Benefits of swimming pools in two remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia: intervention study. (7/30)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the health impact of swimming pools built with the aim of improving quality of life and reducing high rates of pyoderma and otitis media. DESIGN: Intervention study assessing prevalence of ear disease and skin infections before and at six monthly intervals after opening of swimming pools. SETTING: Two remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 84 boys and 78 girls aged < 17 years. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Changes in prevalence and severity of pyoderma and perforation of tympanic membranes with or without otorrhoea over 18 months after opening of pools. RESULTS: In community A, 61 children were seen before the pool was opened, and 41, 46, and 33 children were seen at the second, third, and fourth surveys. Equivalent figures for community B were 60, 35, 39, and 45. Prevalence of pyoderma declined significantly from 62% to 18% in community A and from 70% to 20% in community B during the 18 months after the pools opened. Over the same period, prevalence of severe pyoderma fell from 30% to 15% in community A and from 48% to 0% in community B. Prevalence of perforations of the tympanic membrane fell from 32% in both communities to 13% in community A and 18% in community B. School attendance improved in community A. CONCLUSION: Swimming pools in remote communities were associated with reduction in prevalence of pyoderma and tympanic membrane perforations, which could result in long term benefits through reduction in chronic disease burden and improved educational and social outcomes.  (+info)

Subjective evaluation and overall satisfaction after tympanoplasty for chronic simple suppurative otitis media. (8/30)

A questionnaire survey was conducted in 324 patients with chronic, simple, suppurative otitis media who had undergone tympanoplasty 6 months or more previously to investigate post-operative hearing, tinnitus, vertigo, occlusive feeling of the ear and otorrhea. In addition, the overall satisfaction with tympanoplasty was assessed by VAS value. Subjective hearing improvement was observed in 73.1% of the patients whose hearing was poor and in 50% of those whose hearing was good before the operation. The degree of satisfaction assessed by VAS value corresponded with the subjective hearing assessment. As to tinnitus, 66.2% of the patients became aware of the disappearance or alleviation of symptoms. In the case of patients who had tinnitus before the operation, the degree of awareness of tinnitus and the degree of satisfaction assessed by VAS value coincided. However, no changes in the VAS value were observed in those who did not have tinnitus before the operation. As for vertigo, 30.5% of the patients who had vertigo preoperatively became aware of the disappearance of the symptoms after the operation. The degree of satisfaction assessed by VAS value corresponded with the presence or absence, severity and frequency of vertigo. As to the fullness of the ear, alleviation of the symptoms was subjectively noted by 85.9% of the patients who had symptoms before the operation. The degree of satisfaction assessed by VAS value corresponded with the severity of the symptoms in those who had symptoms before the operation. As for otorrhea, the disappearance of the symptoms was subjectively noted by 85.5% of the patients who had otorrhea before the operation. The degree of satisfaction assessed by VAS value corresponded with the post-operative changes in otorrhea. Based on the above results, it was assumed that the patients placed greatest expectation on hearing improvement when they underwent tympanoplasty. VAS is considered a useful method to evaluate the degree of satisfaction of patients after surgery.  (+info)

Candida auris has emerged as a multidrug-resistant yeast causing substantial mortality in health care settings worldwide. Rapid identification of C. auris directly from patient samples is of primary importance for the administration of empirical antifungal therapy and for the implementation of public health measures to control the spread of infection. In this investigation, we developed a real-time PCR assay for rapid detection of C. auris from surveillance samples. The real-time PCR assay provided rapid results within 4 h of sample processing, compared to the much slower culture results, which may take anywhere from 4 to 14 days. The assay was highly sensitive, with a detection limit of 1 C. auris CFU/PCR. The high sensitivity of the real-time PCR assay is not surprising since the multicopy ITS2 was used as a gene target. More importantly, the assay was highly specific, as no cross-reactivity was observed with all known closely and distantly related yeasts and other pathogens. Also, ...
Candida spp. infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Candida auris is an emerging multi-drug-resistant fungus that is rapidly spreading worldwide. Since the first reports in 2009, many isolates across five continents have been identified as agents of hospital-associated infections. Independent and simultaneous outbreaks of C. auris are becoming a major concern for healthcare and scientific community. Moreover, laboratory misidentification and multi-drug-resistant profiles, rarely observed for other non-albicans Candida species, result in difficult eradication and frequent therapeutic failures of C. auris infections. The aim of this review was to provide an updated and comprehensive report of the global spread of C. auris, focusing on clinical and microbiological characteristics, mechanisms of virulence and antifungal resistance, and efficacy of available control, preventive, and therapeutic strategies.
Basel, Switzerland, March 10, 2014 - Auris Medical today announced enrollment of the first patient into the TACTT21 clinical trial. This phase 3 trial will evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of intratympanic injections of AM-101 in the treatment of acute peripheral tinnitus following traumatic coch-lear injury or otitis media. TACTT2 will enroll 330 patients at more than 60 sites primarily in the United States and Canada. The initiation of the TACTT2 trial follows shortly after the start of TACTT3, its European counterpart. Both have been designed as pivotal double-blind, placebo-controlled trials and are part of Auris Medicals phase 3 development program with AM-101. All participants completing one of the TACTT studies and continuing to meet certain criteria will be eligible to enter an open label safety study (AMPACT1, respectively AMPACT2)2 and receive up to three treatment cycles with AM-101 over up to nine months.. Thomas Meyer, Auris Medicals founder and CEO, commented: "It ...
If you (or your child) have acute otorrhea then treatment will involve your GP cleaning your ear of this discharge using a special suction device. Once this has been done he/she will examine the ear in detail to try and detect the site of the discharge. Do not try and clean your ear (or your childs) by washing it out with water. The reason for this is that this can put undue pressure on the ear drum which may perforate this and cause the infection to spread deeper into the ear. Your GP will prescribe antibiotics and will advise you to avoid swimming or getting your ear wet during the course of your treatment. Grommets are an option if your child has this condition. If the condition has occurred as a result of an object within the ear then this will be removed by your GP or a specialist. A specialist will also be involved if the condition is a result of a head injury or a tumour. ...
Candida auris (or C. auris) is a yeast belonging to Candida family that was discovered relatively recently. In 2009, Satoh and colleagues from Japan found this yeast from the ear discharge of a 70-year-old Japanese woman.
Source of map: https://www.cdc.gov/fungal/diseases/candidiasis/candida-auris.html. The report is the first to describe U.S. cases of C. auris infection. C. auris is often resistant to antifungal drugs and tends to occur in hospitalized patients. In June 2016, CDC issued a clinical alert describing the global emergence of C. auris and requesting that laboratories report C. auris cases and send patient samples to state and local health departments and CDC. Since then, CDC has been investigating reports of C. auris with several state and local health departments. The agency expects to continue to investigate possible cases as awareness of the emerging infection increases.. "We need to act now to better understand, contain and stop the spread of this drug-resistant fungus," said CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H. "This is an emerging threat, and we need to protect vulnerable patients and others.". Among the seven cases detailed in the report, patients with C. auris were reported in four states: ...
Information for treatment of c.auris including drug doses. Consultation with an infectious disease specialist is recommended when caring for patients with C. auris infection.
Candida auris is an emerging multidrug-resistant yeast that can cause invasive infections associated with high mortality, spread in healthcare settings, and cause outbreaks. The first U.S. cases were reported in November 2016. As of November 30, 2017, CDC has identified 174 cases of C. auris infection in 10 states. CDC has found an additional 257 patients colonized with C. auris through targeted screening in those states. To prevent further spread of this organism, CDC published guidance for healthcare professionals on identification, treatment, and infection control. CDC released updated recommendations based on recent findings that C. auris has been identified in patients who received healthcare outside of the United States in countries with known C. auris transmission; and that in approximately half of C. auris cases, the organism was isolated from non-invasive sites such as urine and wounds. The recommendations include testing Candida isolates from non-sterile, non-invasive sites to ...
Source of map: https://www.cdc.gov/fungal/diseases/candidiasis/candida-auris.html. The report is the first to describe U.S. cases of C. auris infection. C. auris is often resistant to antifungal drugs and tends to occur in hospitalized patients. In June 2016, CDC issued a clinical alert describing the global emergence of C. auris and requesting that laboratories report C. auris cases and send patient samples to state and local health departments and CDC. Since then, CDC has been investigating reports of C. auris with several state and local health departments. The agency expects to continue to investigate possible cases as awareness of the emerging infection increases.. "We need to act now to better understand, contain and stop the spread of this drug-resistant fungus," said CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H. "This is an emerging threat, and we need to protect vulnerable patients and others.". Among the seven cases detailed in the report, patients with C. auris were reported in four states: ...

US cases of an emerging, often multidrug-resistant fungus called Candida auris, causing severe illness with high mortality, have grown from seven to 122.
A deadly, hard-to-spot "superbug" yeast is rapidly infiltrating American hospitals. In June 2016, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned clinics about the emergence of a new multidrug-resistant yeast strain called Candida auris. Two months later the first seven cases of a C. auris infection were recorded in the United States. The yeast causes severe illness and has a high mortality rate, especially among high-risk, hospitalized newborns and elderly.. Now, the number of cases in the U.S of the multi-drug resistant yeast has jumped from seven to more than 122. Whats worse, this so-called superbug is resistant to most mainline treatments, killing about 60 percent of those whove been infected with the yeast, the Daily Mail Online reported.. Though superbugs usually reference bacteria that have evolved to resist multiple antibiotics and are especially hard to kill, this deadly yeast also appears to have evolved resistance to multiple drugs. The yeast was first identified ...

CSF rhinorrhoea refers to the drainage of cerebrospinal fluid through the nose. Measures of CSF components such as glucose have been used in the past, but are neither sensitive nor specific; beta-2 transferrin, however, has been shown to have a high positive predictive value. It has also been noted to be characterized by unilateral discharge. It is a sign of basal skull fracture. Management includes watchful waiting - leaks often stop spontaneously; if this does not occur then neurosurgical closure is necessary to prevent the spread of infection to the meninges. Other signs of basal skull fracture includes CSF otorrhoea (drainage of CSF through the ear). It can have devastating complications in some patients, as the communication between the nasal cavity and the cerebrospinal fluid and CNS can result in bacterial infections of the CNS that can have catastrophic effects on the patient. CSF rhinorrhoea can also be a symptom of a pituitary adenoma.[citation needed] Spontaneous CSF rhinorrhea. The ...

The extradural middle fossa approach (EMFA) is an anterior petrosectomy useful for accessing lesions of petroclival and cavernous sinus regions. It may be included in combined petrosal approach and extended in the anterolateral transcavernous approach. To facilitate the first attempts with this relatively uncommon approach, during dissections of human cadaveric injected heads and isolated temporal bones, we developed a simple learning method useful for localizing all anatomical structures. Technically, EMFA is a demanding interdural dissection, that provides a wide exposure of an extradural corridor between the middle meningeal artery, 5th cranial nerve, gasserian ganglion, 7th cranial nerve, geniculate ganglion, and 8th cranial nerve, internal carotid artery (C5-C6 tract and the GSPN above), arcuate eminence, cochlea, petrous apex, and petro-clival junction. Its major advantages are that it offers extradural dissection, limits the temporal lobe retraction, and avoids the transposition of

Candida auris is a fungal pathogen that has recently emerged as an important cause for nosocomial infection around the world. It is frequently found to be resistant antifungal medication and can result in prolonged colonization of patients skin and contamination of surrounding environments. The likelihood of cross contamination and survival on surfaces can lead to nosocomial outbreaks in hospitals and long-term care facilities.. The Canadian government and the CDC recommend placement of colonized or infected patients in single rooms with routine contact precautions; daily and terminal environmental disinfection with a sporicidal agent, like Nocospray.1. Public Health Ontario Provincial Infectious Disease Advisory Committee (PIDAC) in addition to enhanced daily cleaning and disinfection suggest that facilities with access to no-touch disinfection technologies like Nocospray can use these to augment their standard efforts.2.

Antibiotiques pour prévenir linfection des enveloppes du cerveau (méningite) chez les patients souffrant de fractures de la base du crâne. La fracture de la base du crâne (7 à 15,8 % de toutes les fractures du crâne) met le système nerveux central en contact avec les bactéries du nez et de la gorge. Elle peut être associée à une perte de liquide céphalo-rachidien (ce qui se produit chez 2 à 20,8 % des patients). Un écoulement sanguin ou aqueux par le nez ou les oreilles, des ecchymoses derrière les oreilles ou autour des yeux, une perte auditive, lincapacité de percevoir les odeurs ou une asymétrie faciale peuvent conduire les médecins à diagnostiquer une fracture de la base du crâne.

The standard transmastoid facial recess approach has become the popular technique for cochlear implantation. Although this approach has been used for implantation in patients with common cavity malformations, in patients with this anomaly and severe abnormalities of the middle ear, this approach may be technically difficult and makes the facial nerve vulnerable to injury. Using a direct approach to the common cavity through the mastoid cavity, we have successfully performed cochlear implantation in 1 patient with a common cavity malformation. This transmastoid labyrinthotomy approach to the common cavity is an effective and simple technique for placing the electrode array. It minimizes the risk to the facial nerve and may decrease postoperative cerebrospinal fluid leaks.. ...

At 9:30 p.m. on May 5, 1981, a 17-year-old man riding a motorcycle struck a 300-lb (136-kg) cow moose. He was found unconscious at the scene and was transferred to our institution. Evaluation revealed a basilar skull fracture, purposeful movements, and groaning verbalization, without eye opening, in response to noxious stimuli. He had a right hemiparesis, and CT scanning showed a small left intracerebral hematoma without midline shift. The patient was followed up with serial neurologic ...

In todays Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, investigators from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and several state health departments say a total of 77 clinical cases of the emerging multidrug-resistant fungus Candida auris have now been reported from seven states. New York has the most reported cases with 53, followed by New Jersey (16), Illinois (4), Indiana (1), Maryland (1), Massachusetts (1), and Oklahoma (1).. C auris was originally discovered in 2009 in Japan and since then has emerged as a global health threat due to its growing resistance to all three major classes of antifungals used to treat Candida infections. The CDC estimates the mortality rate of C auris infections at approximately 60%. Among the 77 clinical cases, median patient age was 70 years and 55% were male, and nearly all patients had underlying health conditions and extensive exposure to healthcare facilities. The report says epidemiological connections have been found between most cases, with ...

Drop weld injuries to the tympanic membrane and middle ear caused by hot sparks or molten slag are a rare but significant injury. Steel workers and welders who are regularly exposed to flying sparks and molten metal slag are predisposed. This type of transtympanic thermal injury occurs when the slag literally drops into the external auditory canal and burns through the tympanic membrane. A spectrum of severity of injury occurs which includes chronic tympanic membrane perforation, chronic otorrhoea, facial nerve injury and deafness. Chronic tympanic membrane perforation is the most common sequelae and is perhaps one of the most challenging of all perforations to repair The combination of direct thermal injury and foreign body reaction results in continuing or recurrent suppuration. The foreign body reaction is due to the embedding of metal slag in the promontorial mucosa. We present a case of drop weld injury to the left tympanic membrane, resulting in chronic middle ear inflammation, otorrhoea ...

In patients with recurrent meningitis, one of the possible routes of infection is via an abnormal pathway connecting the CSF space with the middle ear or mastoid air cells. These patients may also have CSF rhinorrhea or CSF otorrhea, depending on the integrity of the ear drum.. The commonly recognized causes of CSF leakage into the middle ear include trauma to the temporal bone and prior surgery with subsequent temporal bone defects and chronic infection (4, 5). Spontaneous CSF fistulas from the subarachnoid space into the middle ear cavity are uncommon and may be classified into two types: those that extend to the middle ear or external canal (perilabyrinthine) and those associated with a developmental anomaly of the cochlea (translabyrinthine) (2, 6).. The more common translabyrinthine variety is nearly always associated with anacusis and a severe labyrinthine dysplasia. The involved cochlea completely lacks a modiolus and thus permits ready communication between the CSF and the perilymphatic ...

A cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhoea occurs when there is a fistula between the dura and the skull base and discharge of CSF from the nose. CSF rhinorrhea or liquorrhoea commonly occurs following head trauma (fronto-basal skull fractures), as a result of intracranial surgery, or destruction lesions. A spinal fluid leak from the intracranial space to the nasal respiratory tract is potentially very serious because of the risk of an ascending infection which could produce fulminant meningitis. This article reviewed the causes, diagnosis and treatment of CSF leakage. A PUBMED search of the National Library of Medicine was conducted. CSF leak most commonly occurs following trauma and the majority of cases presenting within the first three months. CSF rhinorrhoea have significantly greater incidence of periorbital haematoma. ...

Background. An altered renal function is an essential component of the patho-physiology of pre-eclampsia. The plasma levels of low molecular mass proteins, e. g. beta-trace protein, beta-2-microglobulin and cystatin C, are increased in the third trimester of normal pregnancy. The plasma levels of cystatin C and beta-2-microglobulin are further increased in preeclampsia, and the cystatin C level has been reported to be a reliable marker for the disease. The aim of this investigation was to study the plasma levels of beta-trace protein, beta-2-microglobulin and cystatin C in pre-eclampsia, and to determine the diagnostic performance of these proteins compared to that of urate and creatinine. Methods. A case-control study of 57 women diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, and 218 healthy women with uncomplicated singleton pregnancies in the third trimester. Women in the catchment area of Lund, Sweden, were included during an 18-month period from October 2003 to April 2005. Venous blood samples were drawn ...
Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is a chronic inflammation of the middle ear and mastoid cavity. More about Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media
Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is persistent inflammation of the middle ear or mastoid cavity. it usually begins as a complication of persistent acute otitis media (AOM) with perforation in childhood. Typical findings may also include thickened granular middle ear mucosa and mucosal polyps [17]. The worldwide prevalence of CSOM is 65 to 330 million persons, and 39 to 200 million (60%) of those individuals has clinically significant hearing impairment [17]. The definitive treatment of CSOM is by surgery (tympanoplasty and/or mastoidectomy), nevertheless, initial treatment by ear toilet and ototopical agents is necessary to prepare the ear for surgery. The selection of local or systemic antibiotic for therapy depends greatly on the type of the organism isolated in such cases. In the present study, Pseudomonas aeruginosa was the most commonly isolated bacterial pathogen followed by Klebsiella, Staphylococci, Diphtheroids and Acinetobacter. Additionally, mixed bacterial infection was ...
