Keratin particle-induced osteolysis: a mouse model of inflammatory bone remodeling related to cholesteatoma. (1/27)

We implanted keratin and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) particles to the surface of mouse calvariae to produce a quantitative, localized, inflammatory bone remodeling similar to that seen in cholesteatoma. Both types of particles resulted in increased osteoclast density compared with controls. Osteoclasts infiltrated from marrow and vascular spaces and were active at the periphery of these spaces leading to significant bone remodeling, as demonstrated by the incorporation of bone-labelling fluorophores. Osteoclasts were rarely found on the surface of the calvariae, and mineral apposition rate at the ventral surface was not altered in keratin-implanted animals compared with nonoperated controls. While not useful for the study of the root cause of cholesteatoma, this model will allow the study ofpathologic bone remodeling related to cholesteatoma in a genetically defined animal.  (+info)

First isolation of Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron from a patient with a cholesteatoma and experiencing meningitis. (3/27)

A 45-year-old man with a cholesteatoma experienced purulent meningitis. Microbial analysis of cerebrospinal fluid yielded in pure culture a gram-negative bacillus. Phenotypic methods were suggestive of a Bacteroides distasonis or either a Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron or Bacteroides ovatus infection. The isolate was identified by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis as B. thetaiotaomicron. This is the first case of B. thetaiotaomicron meningitis in pure culture.  (+info)

Suppressive activity of vitamin D3 on matrix metalloproteinase production from cholesteatoma keratinocytes in vitro. (4/27)

There is much evidence that degradation of the extracellular matrix is essential for the development of cholesteatomas and that this is induced by activation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Vitamin D3 (VD3) has several well-recognised biological activities, including suppression of MMP production. The present study, therefore, was undertaken to examine whether VD3 could suppress MMP production from cholesteatoma keratinocytes in vitro. Keratinocytes (2.5 x 10(5) cells/mL) induced from cholesteatoma tissue specimens were cultured with various concentrations of VD3. After one hour, lipopolysaccharide was added to the cell cultures at 100 mug/mL. The culture supernatants were then collected and assayed for MMP-1 and MMP-3 by ELISA. We also used ELISA to measure the levels of both TIMP (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase)-1 and TIMP-2 in culture supernatants. Addition of VD3 into keratinocyte cultures caused the suppression of MMP and TIMP production, which was increased by LPS stimulation. This was dose-dependent. The present results showing the suppressive activity of VD3 on the production of MMPs, which are responsible for tissue remodeling, strongly suggest that VD3 would be a good candidate for an agent in the medical treatment of, or prophylaxis for, cholesteatomas.  (+info)

Cholesteatoma of external auditory canal: a case report. (5/27)

The authors present a case of cholesteatoma of external auditory canal (CEAC) with extensive invasion of mastoid; ossicle chain and tympanic membrane remained intact. The only symptom was chronic otorrhea. Diagnosis was based on clinical elements and CT scan was used to measure pathology and program surgery. Treatment was modified radical mastoidectomy associated with meatoplasty. Due to the insidious character of CEAC and the proximity with important structures of the external auditory canal, it must be always considered in differential diagnosis for lesions of external auditory canal. This case report intended to review clinical and surgical aspects of treatment of CEAC and present our approach in a case with severe lesions.  (+info)

Growth of cholesteatoma by implantation of epithelial tissue along the femoral bone of rats. (6/27)

Cholesteatoma is a well-known infection resembling a pearl. Its histological aspect is of an epidermal cyst formation characterized by epidermal-keratinized tissue in the middle ear and mastoid that can migrate and erode to adjacent structures. AIM: To verify epidermal cyst (cholesteatoma) growth through implantation of auricular skin of a mouse next to its femoral bone. STUDY DESIGN: Experimental. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Ten healthy rats between two and five months of age and of both sexes underwent implantation of auricular skin on the femoral bone during a three-month period. Paraffin-embedded sections were obtained from the sample and stained with hematoxylin and eosin for pathology investigation. RESULTS: Macroscopic view: round soft yellowish granulation tissue. Microscopic view: keratinizing stratified squamous epithelium cystic formation. The cyst presented innermost corneal layer, resulted from keratinized skin, followed by granulated and squamous layers, and outermost basal layer. CONCLUSIONS: Growth of epidermal cyst (cholesteatoma) may start from a transplanted epithelial tissue next to the femoral bone of rats.  (+info)

Readout-segmented EPI for rapid high resolution diffusion imaging at 3 T. (7/27)

Readout mosaic segmentation has been suggested as an alternative approach to EPI for high resolution diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). In the readout-segmented EPI (RS-EPI) scheme, segments of k-space are acquired along the readout direction. This reduces geometric distortions due to the decrease in readout time. In this work, further distortion reduction is achieved by combining RS-EPI with parallel imaging (PI). The performance of the PI-accelerated RS-EPI scheme is assessed in volunteers and patients at 3T with respect to both standard EPI and PI-accelerated EPI. Peripherally cardiac gated and non-gated RS-EPI images are acquired to assess whether motion due to brain pulsation significantly degrades the image quality. Due to the low off-resonance of PI-driven RS-EPI, we also investigate if the eddy currents induced by the diffusion gradients are low enough to use the Stejskal-Tanner diffusion preparation instead of the twice-refocused eddy-current compensated diffusion preparation to reduce TE. It is shown that non-gated phase corrected DWI performs equally as well as gated acquisitions. PI-driven DW RS-EPI images with substantially less distortion compared with single-shot EPI are shown in patients-allowing the delineation of structures in the lower parts of the brain. A twice-refocused diffusion preparation was found necessary to avoid blurring in the DWI data. This paper shows that the RS-EPI scheme may be an important alternative sampling strategy to EPI to achieve high resolution T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted images.  (+info)

Congenital cholesteatoma extending into the internal auditory canal and cochlea: a case report. (8/27)

We report here on a case of congenital cholesteatoma that extended into the internal auditory meatus and cochlea. A 17-year-old boy underwent surgery for a very large cholesteatoma, which was discovered behind an intact tympanic membrane. Pure tone audiometry revealed an unresponsive ear. High resolution temporal bone computed tomography showed perilabyrinthine extension with its absence in the vestibular area, and destruction of the bony cochlea at the basal turn, the tegmen and the posterior cranial fossa. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed no intracranial extension. Surgical exploration of the middle ear and the mastoid cavity revealed that both the vestibule and the basal turn of the cochlea were filled with a noninfected cholesteatoma. The cholesteatoma extended into the internal auditory meatus through translabyrinthine destruction; it extended into the basal turn of the cochlea through the infralabyrinthine route. The bony segment of the facial nerve canal demonstrated near total dehiscence. The cholesteatoma was removed by the transotic approach. Congenital cholesteatoma is characterized by no specific history. Therefore, early detection of this malady can be challenging, but it is important to prevent such complications as were observed in this reported case.  (+info)

Single-shot echo-planar imaging has been used widely in diffusion magnetic resonance imaging due to the difficulties in correcting motion-induced phase corruption in multishot data. Readout-segmented EPI has addressed the multishot problem by introducing a two-dimensional nonlinear navigator correction with online reacquisition of uncorrectable data to enable acquisition of high-resolution diffusion data with reduced susceptibility artifact and T*(2) blurring. The primary shortcoming of readout-segmented EPI in its current form is its long acquisition time (longer than similar resolution single-shot echo-planar imaging protocols by approximately the number of readout segments), which limits the number of diffusion directions. By omitting readout segments at one side of k-space and using partial Fourier reconstruction, readout-segmented EPI imaging times could be reduced. In this study, the effects of homodyne and projection onto convex sets reconstructions on estimates of the fractional anisotropy, mean
Until recently, clinically useful diffusion-weighted imaging of the spine has not been possible using standard single shot EPI techniques, due to susceptibility artifacts and the need for higher spatial resolution.

Abstract Conclusion: The detection of the HER4 receptor in 50% of cholesteatomas but never in the reference tissue, and the increased expression of its activating ligand EPI, suggest that EPI-mediated activation of HER4 might play a role in cholesteatoma growth. Objective: To investigate the expression of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) system in human middle ear cholesteatoma. Methods: Forty-seven patients referred for surgery due to cholesteatoma were included in the study. Clinical data were collected. Biopsies of cholesteatoma and skin from the external ear canal were obtained during surgery. mRNA expression was quantified with real-time PCR. The corresponding proteins were visualized using immunohistochemistry. Results: A systematic investigation of all four receptors, HER1, HER2, HER3, and HER4, and the ligands EGF, transforming growth factor (TGF)-α, amphiregulin (AR), heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF), and epiregulin (EPI) of the EGF system is presented.

Although middle-ear cholesteatoma is a major topic in otological research, its etiology and pathogenesis remain unclear. Pediatric cholesteatoma is considered more aggressive than adult cholesteatoma, as it has a higher rate of growth, is more often infected and exhibits wider extension. Higher incidence of residual and recurrent disease after surgical treatment of pediatric cholesteatoma has been observed in most studies. In this study, the results are presented from a canal wall down (CWD) obliteration technique used in 330 adult patients (Paper I) with cholesteatoma, evaluated at 1, 3 and 6 years following surgery. Additionally, results are offered from 57 pediatric patients (Paper II) using identical surgical technique and compared with adults. The surgical and hearing outcomes in both groups showed a low incidence of residual and recurrent disease and a high rate of ear water resistance without infection. The results were unrelated to the severity and extension of disease, as well as to age ...
Cholesteatoma is a destructive and expanding growth consisting of keratinizing squamous epithelium in the middle ear and/or mastoid process. Although cholesteatomas are not classified as either tumors or cancers, they can still cause significant problems because of their erosive and expansile properties resulting in the destruction of the bones of the middle ear (ossicles), as well as their possible spread through the base of the skull into the brain. They are also often infected and can result in chronically draining ears. The majority (98%) of patients with cholesteatoma have ear discharge or hearing loss or both in the affected ear. Other more common conditions, such as otitis externa, may also present with these symptoms, but cholesteatoma is much more serious and should not be overlooked. If a patient presents to a doctor with ear discharge and hearing loss, the doctor should consider the patient to have cholesteatoma until the disease is definitely excluded. Other less common symptoms (all ...

Hearing preservation is, of course, a major concern but should not take precedence over removing the invasive tumor. Most patients who undergo surgery for cholesteatoma are able to maintain or improve their hearing at a subsequent operation for reconstruction of the bones of hearing. However, individuals may not be candidates for further reconstructive surgery if irreversible changes took place in the ear due to the disease. A hearing aid fitting will usually be considered in this situation.. In some instances (less than 1% of operations for cholesteatomas), complete hearing can be lost at the time of surgery or during the healing process. This loss may be due to erosion of the window connecting the middle ear to the inner ear via the invasion of the cholesteatoma, or infection passing through this defect.. The ear drum is generally repaired at the time of surgery by inserting a grafted, new ear drum taken from tissue behind the ear over the skull. In most cases, this new grafted ear drum heals. ...

Cholesteatoma is a destructive and expanding growth of keratinizing squamous epithelium in the middle ear or petrous apex. The molecular and cellular processes of the pathogenesis of acquired middle ear cholesteatoma have not been fully understood. In this study, comparative proteomic analysis was conducted to investigate the roles of specific proteins in the pathways regarding keratinocyte proliferation in cholesteatoma. The differential proteins were detected by comparing the two-dimension electrophoresis (2-DE) maps of the epithelial tissues of 12 attic cholesteatomas with those of retroauricular skins. There were 14 upregulated proteins in the epithelial tissues of cholesteatoma in comparison with retroauricular skin. The modulation of five crucial proteins, HSP27, PRDX2, GRP75, GRP78 and GRP94, was further determined by RT-PCR, Western blot and immunohistochemistry. Phosphorylation of HSP27 at Ser-82 was identified by mass spectroscopy. The results of this study suggested that phosphorylated HSP27

Cholesteatomas actively erode bone because they contain enzymes which are activated by moisture. In time, cholesteatomas will eventually erode the bone leading into the inner ear. This can cause nerve loss and deafness as well as severe imbalance and dizziness. The thin plate of bone that separates the roof of the ear from the brain can also be eroded by cholesteatomas. This exposes the covering of the brain. In extreme situations, it can lead to brain infection and other severe complications. For the possible origins of cholesteatomas, please click here..

In less extensive cholesteatomas, especially when infection is well controlled before surgery, an intact canal wall operation may be the favoured procedure. This operation preserves the wall between the middle ear and mastoid. The principal advantages of the intact canal wall operation are a more normal canal and ear drum, and a greater possibility of hearing restoration. In addition, most patients with the intact canal wall operation can allow water in the ear. The chief disadvantage of the intact canal wall operation is that a regrowth of cholesteatoma may not be evident. Thus, many ear surgeons will delay rebuilding the bones of hearing for a year after an intact canal wall operation for cholesteatoma. The ear drum is opened at the second operation and the bones of hearing are then reconstructed. If a regrowth of cholesteatoma is found, the disease is again removed and reconstruction may be delayed for another 6 months or a year. Repeat CT scans may also be performed in some cases to avoid ...

stem cell factor) and c-fms (the receptor for M-CSF), is highly expressed in hematopoietic progenitor cells (for review see 3). Important information about its function in hematopoiesis has been gained through mice with targeted gene disruption of Flt3 (4) or Flt3 ligand (Flt3L; 5), through in vivo Flt3L injection (6-8) and through overexpression of Flt3L (9, 10) or introduction of constitutively active flt3 mutations (11) in hematopoietic cells. Flt3−/− mice show normal peripheral blood counts, however, pro-B cell numbers are diminished and bone marrow progenitors of these mice display a reduced ability to competitively reconstitute lethally conditioned recipients, most pronounced in the T and myeloid lineages (4). Flt3L−/− mice show no significant changes in red blood cells and platelets but 27-45% decreased numbers of complete nucleated cells in peripheral blood, bone marrow, spleen, and lymph nodes, most marked in relative lymphocyte numbers (5). In addition, the total numbers of ...
Oncogenic activation of neu can occur through overexpression, point mutation, or deletion of the extracellular domain (7, 61). Similar to the murine MMTV-neu model of mammary tumorigenesis, in primary human breast cancers, the overexpression of ErbB-2 (64) and the recent identification of an in-frame deletion of a portion of the extracellular domain of ErbB-2 (62) suggest an important role for ErbB-2 in induction and progression of human breast tumors. The present studies identify for the first time the role of a rate-limiting component of the cell cycle in transformation by Neu in mammary adenocarcinoma cells in vivo. Cyclin D1 abundance and kinase activity were increased in mammary gland tumors from MMTV-neu and MMTV-NDL transgenic animals. The activating ECD mutations of Neu induced cyclin D1 promoter activity in MCF7 cells in a manner that corresponded well with their transforming capacity in Rat-1 cells (61). Cyclin D1 antisense inhibited neuT-induced transformation in a dose-dependent ...
Herein, we provide evidence for a Rab-dependent mechanism for regulating VEGFR2 trafficking and signaling from endosomes in primary endothelial cells. Manipulation of GTPase activity through overexpression of GFP-tagged wild-type or mutant Rab7a proteins perturbed endothelial VEGFR2 trafficking, degradation, and signaling. Intriguingly, Rab7a depletion decreased VEGFR2 tyrosine autophosphorylation on residue Y1175, a characteristic signature in VEGFR2-mediated activation and signaling.32 This correlated with ≈50% decrease in VEGF-A-stimulated endothelial cell migration after Rab7a depletion, suggesting a requirement for Rab7a in VEGFR2-mediated signaling. However, in Rab7a-depleted cells, there was increased p42/44 MAPK levels 30 minutes after VEGF-A addition, suggesting increased signaling through this arm of the pathway. A likely explanation is that VEGFR2-regulated signaling to p42/p44 MAPK occurs at the early endosome and is prolonged in Rab7a-depleted cells as VEGFR2 cannot progress ...
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an intracellular organelle for protein folding, lipid synthesis and Ca2+ storage. It also is responsible for transporting most secreted and transmembrane proteins to their proper cellular locations. ER undergoes stress when the protein load exceeds its folding capacity, and cellular signaling cascades are activated as unfolded protein response (UPR). GRP78 is a major chaperone assisting protein folding, as well as a master regulator of UPR signaling. In this thesis, we discovered that heterozygosity of Grp78 enhances energy expenditure through upregulation of mitochondria activity, and alleviate high fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity and type 2 diabetes in mouse. The latter is also achieved through increase in insulin sensitivity in the white adipose tissue (WAT) of HFD-fed Grp78+/- mice, with adaptive UPR improving ER folding capacity and quality control. This mechanism is validated through overexpression of the active form of ATF6, a transcription factor known to ...
When Debra was diagnosed with a cholesteatoma, she knew it wasnt good. After all, she had a very invasive and very destructive tumor in her right ear. "I went from being able to partially hear in my right ear to being totally deaf in my right ear. I missed out so much on conversations even when they were right in front of me. The Baha System has been life-changing for me. For the first time in my life, I can hear in stereo. I can hear on both sides, and I can hear people talking to me even if there is noise in the background. I am looking forward to richer relationships - richer interactions with friends and family. And now, Im excited because I dont have to miss out on anything anymore.". ...

Epiregulin (EPR) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EREG gene. Epiregulin consists of 46 amino acid residues. Its secondary structure contains approximately 30 percent of β-sheet in the strand. Some of the residues form loops and turns due to the hydrogen bonding. The percentage of β-sheet in epiregulin depends on the domain and the secondary structures that they occupy. The polymeric molecules of epiregulin has the formula weight of 5280.1 g/mol with a polypeptide(L), a polymer type. Structural motifs in most proteins have typical connections in an all β motif. Meaning that the polypeptide chains do not make a crossover connection or in so far as this type of connection has not been observed. Epiregulin is one of the proteins that occupies a typical connection in all β motif. Furthermore, as the structure of epiregulin forms a chain in an all β motif, it also forms β hairpin structural motif. A β hairpin is when the two adjacent anti-parallel β strands connected by a β-turn. ...
The external auditory canal (EAC) is an unusual location for a cholesteatoma. We present the cases of 2 patients with EAC cholesteatoma who experienced extensive damage that extended from the inferior EAC wall to the infratemporal area; there was no mastoid involvement. In both cases, the cholesteatomas were removed under local anesthesia and the inferior canal wall was reconstructed with a technique that involved the placement of a pedicled musculoperiosteal flap, a cartilage graft, and a full-thickness skin graft. This simple procedure preserves a normal EAC contour, middle ear space, and mastoid cavity.. ...

The EGFR pathway has been an attractive target because it is dysregulated in a significant fraction of malignant gliomas through overexpression, amplification, and activating mutations (Rich et al., 2004). Moreover, recent studies have demonstrated that EGFRvIII is required for tumor maintenance in glioma (Mukasa et al., 2010). The EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor gefitinib has been evaluated in a number of clinical trials for GBM; however, results have been disappointing (Rich et al., 2004; Lieberman et al., 2004). The failure of gefitinib raises questions pertaining to delivery of drug to its target. Active efflux at the BBB could prevent drugs from attaining therapeutic levels in the brain and is probably one of the main reasons behind resistance to chemotherapy. It has been shown that several other tyrosine kinase inhibitors are avid substrates for P-gp and BCRP and that their brain distribution is limited due to active efflux out of the brain (Dai et al., 2003; Chen et al., 2009; Lagas et ...

I was diagnosed with a petrous apex cholesteatoma in June this year after spending a week in hospital. I had a battery of tests as well as numerous CT and MRI scans. My symptoms include extreme headaches, nausea, pins and needles and numbness to the left side of my face, weeping left eye and sometimes blurred vision. It is difficult to perform the normal daily functions when I get the symptoms. The petrous apex is located in the center of the head approximately 2-3 inches from the outside of your ear. It is one of the most inaccessible areas to reach in the skull. The petrous apex can have lesions and tumors within it. The most common type of lesion is a petrous apex fluid filled cyst. The surgery is very extensive and rarely performed in South Africa as this is an extremely rare condition. The area that it is located in, requires you to go in between the carotid artery, jugular vein and cochlear. Between 1983 and 2004, 43 patients were treated in USA. There is a Prof. Marco Caversaccio in ...

AU - Carrasco, Vincent N.. AU - Castillo, Mauricio. PY - 2000/5/1. Y1 - 2000/5/1. N2 - Postoperative otologic evaluation of patients who have undergone ossicular reconstruction is often difficult. However, thin-section computed tomography (CT) can help determine the type of prosthesis used for reconstruction and adequately assess for complications that may be causing postoperative conductive hearing loss. A variety of prostheses may be used in ossicular reconstruction (eg, stapes prosthesis, incus interposition graft, Applebaum prosthesis, Black oval-top prosthesis, Richards centered prosthesis, Goldenberg prosthesis) and can usually be identified at CT by their shapes and locations. Several causes of prosthetic failure are readily demonstrated at CT, including recurrent cholesteatoma and otitis media, ...
The aim of this study was to develop a fast method for estimating whether a brain volume loss is within the normal range for the respective age of the patient.A readout-segmented diffusion weighted EPI sequence was performed as part of the routine examination at a 3T scanner. Data without (B0-image) and with diffusion weighting (1000 s/mm2) from 492 patients were examined. 173 data sets had to be excluded due to brain lesions or to pathological enlarged CSF spaces. In the remaining 319 data sets, ADC values were calculated for all pixels exceeding a combined threshold in the diffusion weighted data and in the non-diffusion weighted data. The first part of the histogram represents pixels containing mostly brain tissue. The percentage of number of pixels in this part of the ADC histograms was evaluated for all patients and was correlated with the age of the patients.In all the areas examined, a monotone change of relative pixel numbers with the age of the patients was found.

RESULTS Twenty patients had labyrinthine lesions. Six patients had viral labyrinthitis, one patient had bacterial labyrinthitis, and one patient had luetic labyrinthitis. Three patients had hemorrhage in the labyrinth, two posttraumatic and one spontaneous from an adjacent temporal bone tumor. Only one of the two patients with traumatic labyrinthine hemorrhage had evidence of a fracture on high-resolution CT. In one patient with CT-proved cochlear otosclerosis, peri-cochlear foci of enhancement were seen on contrast-enhanced MR. Four patients had presumed labyrinthine schwannomas. A middle ear cholesteatoma in one patient invaded the cochlea and resulted in marked cochlear enhancement due to granulation tissue. Thirteen patients had intracanalicular and cerebellopontine angle lesions. The lesions included arteriovenous malformations (three patients), sarcoidosis (three patients), metastasis (two patients), lymphoma (two patients), lipomas (two patients), and postshunt meningeal fibrosis (one ...
Jatropha curcas is an important biofuel crop due to the presence of high amount of oil in its seeds suitable for biodiesel production. Triacylglycerols (TAGs) are the most abundant form of storage oil in plants. Diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (DGAT1) enzyme is responsible for the last and only committed step in seed TAG biosynthesis. Direct upregulation of TAG biosynthesis in seeds and vegetative tissues through overexpression of the DGAT1 could enhance the energy density of the biomass, making significant impact on biofuel production. The enzyme diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase is the rate-limiting enzyme responsible for the TAG biosynthesis in seeds. We generated transgenic Jatropha ectopically expressing an Arabidopsis DGAT1 gene through Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. The resulting AtDGAT1 transgenic plants showed a dramatic increase in lipid content by 1.5- to 2 fold in leaves and 20-30 % in seeds, and an overall increase in TAG and DAG, and lower free fatty
ear a bony deficit with consequent herniation of brain tissue into the middle ear should be ruled out [53]. Three cases of heterotopic brain tissue in the middle ear associated with cholesteatoma have been reported [62]. It is possible that in all three, brain herniation occurred as a result of inflammatory damage to the tegmen tympani. Spontaneous herniations of brain (encephaloceles) may occur into the middle ear through a congenital deficiency of the tegmen or other sites [47].. A case of sebaceous choristoma of the middle ear has been described [82].. Was this article helpful?. ...
Background: Diffusion-weighted MRI has been proposed as a new technique for imaging synovitis without intravenous contrast application. We investigated diagnostic utility of multi-shot readout-segmented diffusion-weighted MRI (multi-shot DWI) for synovial imaging of the knee joint in patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Methods: Thirty-two consecutive patients with confirmed or suspected JIA (21 girls, median age 13 years) underwent routine 1.5 T MRI with contrast-enhanced T1w imaging (contrast-enhanced MRI) and with multi-shot DWI (RESOLVE, b-values 0-50 and 800 s/mm\(^2\)). Contrast-enhanced MRI, representing the diagnostic standard, and diffusion-weighted images at b = 800 s/mm\(^2\) were separately rated by three independent blinded readers at different levels of expertise for the presence and the degree of synovitis on a modified 5-item Likert scale along with the level of subjective diagnostic confidence. Results: Fourteen (44%) patients had active synovitis and joint ...
There can be many causes for a ruptured eardrum. Trauma from exposure of the ear to a loud blast, or a slap to the ear with a cupped hand, and rapid changes in pressure can result in a hole in the eardrum. If a sharp object, like a Q-tip, is put too far into the ear canal it can cause a rupture. Middle ear infections can lead to ruptures. The hole can also be a result of a weakened area of the eardrum from a cholesteatoma, or a skin cyst of the ear. Chronic buildup of pressure in the ear, also called Eustachian tube dysfunction, can also lead to a hole. Eardrums that had ear tubes can leave behind a perforation. Why is it a concern ...
Objectives: We assessed the causes of failure in patients who underwent open cavity mastoidectomy. Patients and Methods: Of sixty-three patients who had undergone open cavity mastoidectomy for chronic otitismedia, 11 patients (7 females, 4 males; mean age 35.2 years; lange 8 to 59 years) required revision mastoidectomy. Membrane repair was accomplished with the use of temporal muscle fascia and tragal cartilage; ossicular reconstruction was performed by the interposition of incus and TORP. rhe mean follow-up was 13.1 months (range 6 months to 2 years). Results: The involved ear was the right in seven and the Ieft in four patients. None of the patients, but one with nasal allergy had any immune or systemic dis- eases. In all patients cavity epithelialization was completed in a mean of 1.6 months (range 1 to 3 months).

METHODS: An analysis of a patient case and review of pertinent literature were performed. RESULTS: A patient with a history of right-sided mastoidectomy for cholesteatoma was evaluated for persistent conductive hearing loss. On computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the patient had a complete dehiscence of the tegmen tympani on the right, with ossicular heads being located above the floor of the middle cranial fossa ...
Debris, dirty water and bacteria may enter the middle ear through the perforation. This may result in an infection commonly associated with a discharge out of the ear. Most perforations are associated with hearing loss. The degree of hearing loss depends in part on the size of the perforation, the location of the perforation on the eardrum, and whether there is other pathology present in the ear. In some cases, skin can grow around the margins of the perforation, forming a skin cyst (cholesteatoma), in the middle ear and mastoid. However, in many patients with a perforation of the eardrum, the ear remains free of infection and can be safely left without surgical closure of the perforation. ...

Differential diagnosis must be done from other cyst-like lesions of that region. PACs arise from the adjacent Meckels cave, and secondary erode into the petrous apex [4], whereas lesions such as cholesteatoma, cholesterol granuloma, mucocele, apical petrositis and petrous apex effusion, arise from the petrous apex and expand it from within [3, 4]. Furthermore, epidermoid cysts have high signal intensity on fluid-attenuation inversion-recovery sequence, whereas the signal of arachnoid cysts is suppressed. Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) also allows differentiation of epidermoid and arachnoid cysts i.e. epidermoid cysts yield high signal on DWI due to their restricted diffusion while arachnoid cysts, like CSF, show very low signal intensity. In addition, lesions that have high signal intensity on T2W sequences such as paraganglioma, chondroma, chordoma and apex petrositis show contrast enhancement [2 ...

This cementum may be either hypocellular or cellular in nature. The aetiopathogenesis of hypercementosis is ambiguous. Although most of the cases are idiopathic, several local and systemic factors are also linked to this condition, such as Pagets disease, acromegaly, vitamin A deficiency, etc. We report two rare cases of hypercementosis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus, not previously described in the literature, and also discuss the possible aetiopathogenesis..
