Differentiation characteristics of cholesteatoma epithelium determined by expression of transglutaminase isoenzymes. (1/94)

Transglutaminase (TGase) isoenzymes are involved in the process of the differentiation and cornification of keratinocytes in the epidermis. This study investigates the presence and localization of three TGase isoenzymes to elucidate the nature and differentiation status of the squamous epithelium in human aural cholesteatoma. Twenty cholesteatoma specimens were used. The presence and localization of three TGase isoenzymes were studied by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry. mRNA expression of three TGase isoenzymes were detected in the tested cholesteatomas with variable levels. The immunohistochemical staining patterns of three TGase isoenzymes showed variations within specimens, relating to keratinizing activity. TGase K is the most abundant among three isoenzymes. Keratinizing epithelium of cholesteatoma have similar expression profiles of TGase isoenzymes with those of epidermis of the skin. Other areas, particularly those showing non-keratinizing epithelium, showed weak immunostaining of TGase E and C, suggesting its different maturation status from keratinizing epithelium. The results of this study indicate that epithelium of cholesteatoma undergoes same direction of maturation and differentiation characteristics as the epidermis of skin, evidenced by similar expressions of TGases both in mRNA level and immunohistochemistry.  (+info)

Expression of matrix-degrading cysteine proteinase cathepsin K in cholesteatoma. (2/94)

Cholesteatoma is a nonneoplastic lesion of the middle ear space or mastoid that is histologically characterized by a progressive bone erosion of the ossicles and surrounding bone. Several matrix-degrading enzymes have been implicated as mediators of this bone erosion. Because the novel cysteine proteinase cathepsin K has been shown to play a central role in bone resorption, we examined the expression of this enzyme in tissue specimens of cholesteatoma. Tissue specimens of 9 patients with cholesteatoma were obtained during middle-ear surgery. Expression of cathepsin K mRNA was determined by RT-PCR using specific primers. Immunohistochemical analysis of cathepsin K protein expression in tissue sections was performed by using the streptavidin-alkaline phosphatase technique. Expression of both cathepsin K mRNA and protein was detected in areas affected by cholesteatoma, whereas specimens of nonaffected ear cartilage and surrounding tissue were not positive. In addition, cathepsin K was detected in numerous multinucleated giant cells, particularly osteoclasts at the site of bone degradation. In contrast, keratinized squamous epithelium was negative for cathepsin K. These data demonstrate that the matrix-degrading cysteine proteinase cathepsin K may be involved in bone erosion in cholesteatoma. Strong expression of this collagenolytic enzyme in osteoclasts suggests that these cells are mainly involved in cathepsin K-mediated bone destruction.  (+info)

Diffusion-weighted imaging for differentiating recurrent cholesteatoma from granulation tissue after mastoidectomy: case report. (3/94)

Identification of recurrent cholesteatoma and differentiation from postoperative granulation tissue is important in a patient who has undergone mastoidectomy for cholesteatoma. We describe the diffusion-weighted imaging findings and apparent diffusion coefficient values in a case of recurrent cholesteatoma. This case suggests possible differentiation of cholesteatoma from granulation tissue on the basis of diffusion-weighted imaging findings.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical investigations of cathepsin D activity in the structures of cholesteatoma. (4/94)

BACKGROUND: Cathepsin D decomposes cytoplasmic proteins, cell organelles, collagen, elastase and proteoglycans. It takes part in angiogenesis and activates osteoclasts, and is thought to play a major role in the destruction of bone tissue by cholesteatoma. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the activity of cathepsin D in the structures of cholesteatoma. MATERIAL/METHODS: Cholesteatomas were collected from 16 patients operated on for chronic inflammation of the middle ear. Specimens were fixed in formalin at pH 7.2, after which parrafin slices were made. Cathepsin D was assayed with a Dako set. Keratin was measured by the Kreyberg method. Normal skin from behind the ear was taken from the patients during the same operation. The samples included a stratified, desquamative epithelium (matrix), a streak containing connective tissue (perimatrix), and a mass of keratin debris. RESULTS: Cathepsin D demonstrates high activity in perimatrix cells adjacent to bone tissue, while it occurs in trace amounts in the matrix. A highly positive reaction was observed within keratin, which was present in the superficial layer of the epithelium. Pseudocathepsin located in desquamative epithelial cells demonstrated a high positive reaction. There were trace amounts of cathepsin D within the dermis. In the control group (the skin samples), there were trace amounts of cathepsin D within the corneous layer of the epithelium. CONCLUSIONS: Cathepsin D places a major role in bone tissue destruction due to cholesteatoma.  (+info)

Expression patterns of cytokeratins in cholesteatomas: evidence of increased migration and proliferation. (5/94)

Aural cholesteatoma is characterized by invading squamous epithelia with altered growth properties. Cytokeratin (CK) expression is affected in epidermal proliferative diseases and represents the alterations of keratinocyte proliferation, differentiation, and migration. In the present study, the intensity of CK immuno-expression was determined, using densitometry at various sites in experimental cholesteatoma in order to characterize changes of keratinocytes. With cholesteatoma formation, CK4, a marker for non-keratinizing epithelia, increased in the suprabasal layers of the annular external auditory canal (EAC) and at the pars tensa indicating an altered differentiation and migration of keratinocytes. CK5/6, a marker of keratinizing squamous epithelium, increased only at the pars tensa of the tympanic membrane, indicating basal keratinocyte hyperplasia. CK1/10 increased in the suprabasal layer at the annular EAC, and at the peripheral pars tensa, indicating increased terminal differentiation of keratinocytes. CK13/16, markers of differentiation and hyperproliferation, increased in suprabasal layer of the EAC, and at the peripheral pars tensa. However, it decreased in the basal layer of the EAC, indicating hyperproliferation and migration of keratinocytes. The findings of this study support the basal cell hyperplasia hypotheses for the pathogenesis of aural cholesteatoma, with regard to hyperproliferation, migration, and an altered differentiation of keratinocytes.  (+info)

External auditory canal cholesteatoma: clinical and imaging spectrum. (6/94)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cholesteatoma is an inflammatory lesion of the temporal bone that uncommonly involves the external auditory canal (EAC). In this large case series, we aimed to define its imaging features and to determine the characteristics most important to its clinical management. METHODS: Thirteen cases of EAC cholesteatoma (EACC) were retrospectively reviewed. Clinical data were reviewed for the history, presentation, and physical examination findings. High-resolution temporal bone CT scans were examined for a soft-tissue mass in the EAC, erosion of adjacent bone, and bone fragments in the mass. The middle ear cavity, mastoid, facial nerve canal, and tegmen tympani were evaluated for involvement. RESULTS: Patients presented with otorrhea, otalgia, or hearing loss. Eight cases were spontaneous, and five were postsurgical or post-traumatic. CT imaging in all 13 cases showed a soft-tissue mass with adjacent bone erosion. Intramural bone fragments were identified in seven cases. This mass most often arose inferiorly (n = 8) or posteriorly (n = 8), but it was circumferential in two cases. We noted middle ear extension (n = 5), mastoid involvement (n = 4), facial canal erosion (n = 2), and tegmen tympani dehiscence (n = 1). CONCLUSION: Temporal bone CT shows EACC as a soft-tissue mass within the EAC, with adjacent bone erosion. Bone fragments may be present within the mass. The cholesteatoma may extend into the mastoid or middle ear, or it may involve the facial nerve canal or tegmen tympani. Recognition of this entity and its possible extension is important because it may influence clinical management.  (+info)

Differential diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss. (7/94)

Hearing loss is a common problem that can occur at any age and makes verbal communication difficult. The ear is divided anatomically into three sections (external, middle, and inner), and pathology contributing to hearing loss may strike one or more sections. Hearing loss can be categorized as conductive, sensorineural, or both. Leading causes of conductive hearing loss include cerumen impaction, otitis media, and otosclerosis. Leading causes of sensorineural hearing loss include inherited disorders, noise exposure, and presbycusis. An understanding of the indications for medical management, surgical treatment, and amplification can help the family physician provide more effective care for these patients.  (+info)

Closed tympanoplasty in middle ear cholesteatoma surgery. (8/94)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of closed tympanoplasty surgery for middle ear cholesteatoma and to compare the postoperative results with the outcomes of canal-wall-down mastoidectomy. METHODS: Seventy patients with middle ear cholesteatoma were involved in the study. Pneumo-otoscopy, pure-tone audiometry, anamnestic and clinical data were evaluated before the surgery. Modified radical mastoidectomy was performed for 31 patients. Thirty-nine patients were treated with closed tympanoplasty surgery, including intact canal wall mastoidectomy, endaural atticotomy, lateral attic and aditus wall reconstruction and tympanoplasty. The follow-up examination was carried out 12 months after the surgery. The recurrence of cholesteatoma, otorrhea and hearing level were evaluated postoperatively. RESULTS: Otorrhea was estimated in 4 cases (10.3%) after closed tympanoplasty surgery and in 6 cases (19.4%) after modified radical mastoidectomy. Among the patients who were operated using closed tympanoplasty technique the middle ear cholesteatoma recurrence rate was 12.8% and among those, who underwent modified radical mastoidectomy recurrent disease occurred in 9.7% of the cases. The hearing improvement was found in 15 cases (38.46%) after closed tympanoplasty, while there was no hearing improvement after modified radical mastoidectomy. CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that despite the fact, that cholesteatoma recurrence rate after closed tympanoplasty is relatively high, this surgical method permits to preserve adequate hearing level and releases from postoperative cavity care problems as compared with modified radical mastoidectomy.  (+info)

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 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

The majority (98%) of people with cholesteatoma have ear discharge or conductive hearing loss, or both, in the affected ear.[citation needed] Other more common conditions (e.g. 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 cholesteatoma until the disease is definitely excluded. Other less common symptoms (all less than 15%) of cholesteatoma may include pain, balance disruption, tinnitus, earache, headaches and bleeding from the ear. There can also be facial nerve weakness. Balance symptoms in the presence of a cholesteatoma raise the possibility that the cholesteatoma is eroding the balance organs in the inner ear. Doctors initial inspections may only reveal an ear canal full of discharge. Until the doctor has cleaned the ear and inspected the entire tympanic membrane, cholesteatoma cannot be diagnosed. Once the debris is ...

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.. Cholesteatoma is a serious condition and, when diagnosed, requires prompt treatment. Medical treatment concentrates on drying the infection within the ear. Antibiotics, given both by mouth and drops in the ear, combined with weekly cleaning of the ear under the surgical microscope, can clear up the infection.. Polyps (growth of inflamed tissue) are often present in the ear with cholesteatoma.. The polyps can shrink or may have to be surgically ...
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. ...

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.

As the sun heats your roof throughout the day, attic temperatures can reach over 150 degrees in the summer without proper ventilation. When your attic cannot breathe, the resulting trapped heat and moisture can cause numerous problems including higher electric bills, mold outbreaks, and ultimately the deterioration of your roof over time. Attic Breeze solar attic fans offer the perfect solution to this ventilation problem by continuously removing attic heat and moisture throughout the day, and do so for absolutely no cost of operation. Working as a self-regulating system with your attic, the more intensely the sun beats down on your roof, the faster our fans remove hot air to cool your attic. And when your attic is cooler, everything in your attic just works better ...

Cholesteatoma can be a birth defect (congenital). It more commonly occurs as a result of chronic ear infection. The eustachian tube helps equalize pressure in the middle ear. When it is not working well, negative pressure can build up and pull part of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) inward. This creates a pocket or cyst that fills with old skin cells and other waste material. The cyst may become infected or get bigger. This can cause the breakdown of some of the middle ear bones or other structures of the ear. This can affect hearing, balance, and possibly the function of the facial muscles. ...
Cholesteatoma is an accumulation of squamous epithelium and keratin debris that usually involves the middle ear and mastoid. Although benign, it may enlarge and invade adjacent bone. Often presents with a malodorous ear discharge with associated hearing loss. Diagnosis is clinical based on histor...

Cholesteatomas are benign tumors in cases where a perforation of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) does not heal without surgery,but instead grows through the hole into the middle ear and, if infectiondevelops, results in a cyst-like tumor.
Ventilation is:. Attic ventilation is the flow of outside air through the space at the underside of the deck of an asphalt shingle roof system.. The benefits of ventilation are:. Ventilation moves heat and moisture out of an attic space. Ventilation helps to prevent premature shingle deterioration and roofing system failure by keeping the attic temperature closer to the outside temperature. Ventilation may also help reduce the risk of moisture-related problems by removing moisture-laden air that may collect in the attic space caused by day-to-day activities in the living space. Ventilation also helps to reduce the risk of ice damming.. Ventilation is achieved by:. Natural attic ventilation is effective because hot air rises. Outside air flows through an attic space when vent openings allow this hot air to rise out of the attic space at the top (exhaust) while cooler air is drawn in at the bottom (intake). To achieve the benefits noted above, there must be sufficient air flow. Ventilation systems ...
Unfortunately, many homeowners dont recognize the benefits that come with a well-ventilated attic. It all seems odd to add insulation for warmth and then knowingly allow cold to enter the attic through vents. However, the truth of the matter is proper attic ventilation is the key to a durable and energy-efficient home.. Most experts agree that a well-ventilated attic keeps the house more comfortable. Apart from a properly ventilated attic making a home more comfortable, its benefits go much deeper than comfort. In fact, if you are thinking of home improvement ideas that will bolster the durability of your roof, then you should really consider attic ventilation. Below are some of the benefits of improving your attic ventilation.. ...
In addition to proper insulation in your attic, there are other improvements you can make. Adding an attic fan can increase ventilation and provide benefits all year long, not just in the summer. While a whole house fan can help to provide ventilation throughout the home, an attic fan may be more appropriate for your situation. Ask your contractor if you arent sure.. Call the Hayden ventilation experts at ACI Northwest for more information about how to help weatherize your home for year round comfort and efficiency. To get you started, we have included some of the main ways that attic fans can improve overall home efficiency and prevent moisture problems in the home.. Creating more fresh air circulation in your attic not only helps cool the home in the summer, but it can also prevent moisture related damages. In a home that is already well-insulated and has plenty of ventilation, an attic fan will help with overall efficiency by helping to remove the hot air from the attic. In addition to ...

A nicely-ventilated loft enables air circulation at the lowest and highest level of your building. Proper ventilation also helps guard the roofing structure from the inside in all temperatures and weather settings.. To help your customers be aware of the importance of attic ventilation, consider these points of discussion:. Energy Optimization. High amounts of heat in an attic without ventilation may force your A.C system to work excessively to compensate for the lack and your power bill will certainly go up. Good attic ventilation can help boost your houses power efficiency by letting the heat transfer rate work instead. Dry and cooler temperature air removes abnormal amounts of humidity and heat.. Humidity Damage. Without proper circulation of dry air from outside through the attic, humidity and condensation may gather in the attic and result in several issues. Mold may develop in poorly ventilated spots and insulation affected by humidity levels may shrink its R-value, again affecting ...

I have all of those things: AC vents in the attic, recessed lights, vent pipes form all of my bathrooms. The vent pipes seem to come together in the attic and go into a single pipe out the top of the roof.. The reason this matter to me is Ive noticed a lot of rusty nails from my shingles and when the temps are below freezing they cause icicles to form due to the high moisture. When the sun heats my roof in the day those rusty icicles become drips of nasty rust on my boxes in the attic.. A few questions:. ...

One such essential factor to be considered is the attic ventilation. There are myriads of myths prevailing believing them may lead you to trouble in the long-run. To help you avoid the same, here are some myths and facts of attic ventilation you must know before installing the same.. 1) The More Ventilation, The Better It Is For The House: The way your air-conditioning panel and furnace needs precise sizing for appropriate functioning, the ventilation size is also of a vital importance. It has to be made in accordance with the height and space of attic. Where an insufficient ventilation can lead you to moisture problems during winter and decreased energy efficiency during summer, the abundant ventilation can be even worse.. The vents create roof penetration that exposes the very area from where leaks can occur. Although it does not mean vents should not be installed, the supererogatory vents should be prevented as that can cause roof damage.. Additionally, more amount of vents can severely harm ...
