A surgical specialty concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, and throat.
An autologous or commercial tissue adhesive containing FIBRINOGEN and THROMBIN. The commercial product is a two component system from human plasma that contains more than fibrinogen and thrombin. The first component contains highly concentrated fibrinogen, FACTOR VIII, fibronectin, and traces of other plasma proteins. The second component contains thrombin, calcium chloride, and antifibrinolytic agents such as APROTININ. Mixing of the two components promotes BLOOD CLOTTING and the formation and cross-linking of fibrin. The tissue adhesive is used for tissue sealing, HEMOSTASIS, and WOUND HEALING.
Pathological processes of the ear, the nose, and the throat, also known as the ENT diseases.
Agents used to occlude dental enamel pits and fissures in the prevention of dental caries.

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)

A fracture classification system in which temporal bone fractures detected on CT are delineated based on disruption of the otic capsule has been found to be predictive for complications of temporal bone trauma such as facial nerve injury, sensorineural deafness and cerebrospinal fluid otorrhea. On radiographic images, the otic capsule is the most dense portion of the temporal bone.[1][2]. In otospongiosis, a leading cause of adult-onset hearing loss, the otic capsule is exclusively affected. This area normally undergoes no remodeling in adult life, and is extremely dense. With otospongiosis, the normally dense enchondral bone is replaced by haversian bone, a spongy and vascular matrix that results in sensorineural hearing loss due to compromise of the conductive capacity of the inner ear ossicles. This results in hypodensity on CT, with the portion first affected usually being the fissula ante fenestram.[3]. ...

British health authorities also reported on cases in England, including an ongoing hospital outbreak and issued guidance for the laboratory investigation, management and infection prevention and control for cases of Candida auris.. Candida auris is a yeast species first isolated from the external ear canal of a patient in Japan in 2009.. Candida auris is a pathogenic yeast species that has been reported to cause bloodstream infections, wound infections, and otitis. It has also been cultured from urine and the respiratory tract. Unlike other pathogenic yeast species, C. auris appears to have a propensity for transmission between hospital patients. It is commonly resistant to the first-line antifungal, fluconazole and can develop resistance to other classes of anti-fungal agents.. Pubic Health England reports:.

Candida auris, also known as C. auris, is a type of yeast that can cause serious infections in humans, including bloodstream or wound infections. When people develop C. auris on places such as their skin but do not have an infection, this is called colonization. However, being colonized may increase their risk of developing an infection. Frequently Asked Questions C. auris:
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.

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. ...

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 ...
Why have I been contacted?. Because the germ Candida auris can be spread in a healthcare settings, it is possible that you came into contact with it by being in the same facility as a patient who had this germ. The healthcare facility or health department is contacting people who might have come into contact with this germ, to ask them to get a test to see if they are also now carrying the germ. This is done as part of their work to stop this resistant germ from spreading to other people. Why is it important for me to be tested for this germ?. It is important for you to be tested for this germ for two reasons. First, your doctors will be able to make better decisions for you about your medical care if they know whether you carry this germ. Second, the healthcare facility and health department need to know who is carrying the germ to that they can help prevent it from spreading. Some people can carry this germ on their skin without knowing it and they can spread the germ to others without ...

The solution?. Misting up affected areas with ionised hydrogen peroxide - a quick and effective way to neutralise ALL germs immediately.. This process does require facilities to be completely vacated - though it is possible to section off areas with protective PVC sheeting and handle the job piecemeal.. Once clear, the hydrogen peroxide is released into the air, to spread in all directions and against all surfaces. The ionising forces wide dispersal and electrostatic attraction to pathogens - clamping to them like magnets and ripping them apart by oxidising them.. The hospital involved made one phone call and 24 hours later the job was done - all clear and back to normal, ready for the onset of winter. No candida auris, no anything - sterilised, safe and secure..

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 ...

Looking for online definition of ala auris in the Medical Dictionary? ala auris explanation free. What is ala auris? Meaning of ala auris medical term. What does ala auris mean?
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 ...

There is an issue though. Active applications do not notify the panel of their existence. Each time you click the dock item, new instance of same application is started. In other words, dock does not work as taskbar. Another issue with the panel, as with any dock, is that it makes part of the screen unusuable.
