Pathological processes of the ear, the hearing, and the equilibrium system of the body.
Pathological processes of the inner ear (LABYRINTH) which contains the essential apparatus of hearing (COCHLEA) and balance (SEMICIRCULAR CANALS).
The space and structures directly internal to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and external to the inner ear (LABYRINTH). Its major components include the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE that connects the cavity of middle ear (tympanic cavity) to the upper part of the throat.
The essential part of the hearing organ consists of two labyrinthine compartments: the bony labyrinthine and the membranous labyrinth. The bony labyrinth is a complex of three interconnecting cavities or spaces (COCHLEA; VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH; and SEMICIRCULAR CANALS) in the TEMPORAL BONE. Within the bony labyrinth lies the membranous labyrinth which is a complex of sacs and tubules (COCHLEAR DUCT; SACCULE AND UTRICLE; and SEMICIRCULAR DUCTS) forming a continuous space enclosed by EPITHELIUM and connective tissue. These spaces are filled with LABYRINTHINE FLUIDS of various compositions.
Examination of the EAR CANAL and eardrum with an OTOSCOPE.
The hearing and equilibrium system of the body. It consists of three parts: the EXTERNAL EAR, the MIDDLE EAR, and the INNER EAR. Sound waves are transmitted through this organ where vibration is transduced to nerve signals that pass through the ACOUSTIC NERVE to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. The inner ear also contains the vestibular organ that maintains equilibrium by transducing signals to the VESTIBULAR NERVE.
Inflammation of the MIDDLE EAR including the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE.
A narrow passageway that connects the upper part of the throat to the TYMPANIC CAVITY.
Inflammation of the middle ear with a clear pale yellow-colored transudate.
An oval semitransparent membrane separating the external EAR CANAL from the tympanic cavity (EAR, MIDDLE). It contains three layers: the skin of the external ear canal; the core of radially and circularly arranged collagen fibers; and the MUCOSA of the middle ear.
Inflammation of the ear, which may be marked by pain (EARACHE), fever, HEARING DISORDERS, and VERTIGO. Inflammation of the external ear is OTITIS EXTERNA; of the middle ear, OTITIS MEDIA; of the inner ear, LABYRINTHITIS.
Inflammation of the middle ear with purulent discharge.
A temporary or persistent opening in the eardrum (TYMPANIC MEMBRANE). Clinical signs depend on the size, location, and associated pathological condition.
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
The testing of the acuity of the sense of hearing to determine the thresholds of the lowest intensity levels at which an individual can hear a set of tones. The frequencies between 125 and 8000 Hz are used to test air conduction thresholds and the frequencies between 250 and 4000 Hz are used to test bone conduction thresholds.
Surgery performed on the external, middle, or internal ear.
Conditions that impair the transmission of auditory impulses and information from the level of the ear to the temporal cortices, including the sensorineural pathways.
The outer part of the hearing system of the body. It includes the shell-like EAR AURICLE which collects sound, and the EXTERNAL EAR CANAL, the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE, and the EXTERNAL EAR CARTILAGES.
Hearing loss resulting from damage to the COCHLEA and the sensorineural elements which lie internally beyond the oval and round windows. These elements include the AUDITORY NERVE and its connections in the BRAINSTEM.
A general term for the complete or partial loss of the ability to hear from one or both ears.
The narrow passage way that conducts the sound collected by the EAR AURICLE to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
Disorders that are characterized by the production of antibodies that react with host tissues or immune effector cells that are autoreactive to endogenous peptides.
A mobile chain of three small bones (INCUS; MALLEUS; STAPES) in the TYMPANIC CAVITY between the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and the oval window on the wall of INNER EAR. Sound waves are converted to vibration by the tympanic membrane then transmitted via these ear ossicles to the inner ear.
Tumors or cancer of any part of the hearing and equilibrium system of the body (the EXTERNAL EAR, the MIDDLE EAR, and the INNER EAR).
The shell-like structure projects like a little wing (pinna) from the side of the head. Ear auricles collect sound from the environment.
A mass of KERATIN-producing squamous EPITHELIUM that resembles an inverted (suck-in) bag of skin in the MIDDLE EAR. It arises from the eardrum (TYMPANIC MEMBRANE) and grows into the MIDDLE EAR causing erosion of EAR OSSICLES and MASTOID that contains the INNER EAR.
A syndrome of defective gonadal development in phenotypic females associated with the karyotype 45,X (or 45,XO). Patients generally are of short stature with undifferentiated GONADS (streak gonads), SEXUAL INFANTILISM, HYPOGONADISM, webbing of the neck, cubitus valgus, elevated GONADOTROPINS, decreased ESTRADIOL level in blood, and CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS. NOONAN SYNDROME (also called Pseudo-Turner Syndrome and Male Turner Syndrome) resembles this disorder; however, it occurs in males and females with a normal karyotype and is inherited as an autosomal dominant.
A part of the upper respiratory tract. It contains the organ of SMELL. The term includes the external nose, the nasal cavity, and the PARANASAL SINUSES.
Occupations of medical personnel who are not physicians, and are qualified by special training and, frequently, by licensure to work in supporting roles in the health care field. These occupations include, but are not limited to, medical technology, physical therapy, physician assistant, etc.
Subset of helper-inducer T-lymphocytes which synthesize and secrete the interleukins IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, and IL-10. These cytokines influence B-cell development and antibody production as well as augmenting humoral responses.
Subset of helper-inducer T-lymphocytes which synthesize and secrete interleukin-2, gamma-interferon, and interleukin-12. Due to their ability to kill antigen-presenting cells and their lymphokine-mediated effector activity, Th1 cells are associated with vigorous delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions.
Messages between computer users via COMPUTER COMMUNICATION NETWORKS. This feature duplicates most of the features of paper mail, such as forwarding, multiple copies, and attachments of images and other file types, but with a speed advantage.

Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.

An aural myiasis case in a 54-year-old male farmer in Korea. (1/190)

A 54-year-old male farmer residing in Chunchon, Korea, complaining of blood tinged discharge and tinnitus in the left ear for two days, was examined in August 16, 1996. Otoscopic examination revealed live maggots from the ear canal. The patient did not complain of any symptoms after removal of maggots. Five maggots recovered were identified as the third stage larvae of Lucilia sericata (Diptera: Calliphoridae). This is the first record of aural myiasis in Korea.  (+info)

Examination on biological activities and fates of new steroids, steroid-17-yl methyl glycolate derivatives. (2/190)

A variety of acyl derivatives based on the "antedrug" concept were synthesized to evaluate their biological activities, in vitro fate in human serum and examine pharmacokinetics in rats. Among the prepared compounds, acetyl and pivaloyl derivatives (8 and 9) showed strong to vasoconstrictive activity in human, exceeding that of dexamethasone. In rats, topical administration of the compound 8 significantly reduced oxazolone-induced ear edema compared to that of control. These activities were almost equal to that of prednisolone, however 9 did not show any suppression of the oxazolone-induced edema. The in vitro half-lives of 8 and 9 in human serum were 18.2 and 43.8 hours, respectively. Prednisolone and dexamethasone were extremely stable under the used conditions. When compound 8 was intravenously administrated to rats, its metabolites, 20(R)-methyl dexamethasonate (4) and carboxylic acid (18), were found in the systemic blood. The total body clearance of 8 was 1734 ml x hr(-1) x kg(-1), which was about 12 times larger than that of dexamethasone. On the other hand, 9 was found to be metabolized instantaneously to methyl prednisolonate (1) in systemic serum. Acetyl derivative 8 derived from dexamethasone may thus be useful as a topical steroid which offers the advantage of a low potential for systemic and local side effects.  (+info)

High-resolution MR cisternography of the cerebellopontine angle: 2D versus 3D fast spin-echo sequences. (3/190)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical usefulness of MR cisternography of the cerebellopontine angle, applying 2D or 3D fast spin-echo sequences, has been reported recently. Our purpose was to investigate the cause of signal loss in CSF in the prepontine or cerebellopontine angle cistern on 2D FSE MR images and to compare the cisternographic effects of 2D and 3D FSE sequences. METHODS: Preliminary experiments were performed in four volunteers to assess the causes of signal loss. Initially, using a 2D cardiac-gated cine phase-contrast method with a velocity encoding value of 6 cm/s, we measured the velocity and flow pattern of CSF. Comparisons were made to assess the effects of intravoxel dephasing, amplitude of the section-selecting gradient, echo time (TE), and section thickness. Four healthy subjects and 13 patients with ear symptoms were examined, and multisection 3-mm-thick 2D images and 30-mm-slab, 1-mm-section 3D images were compared qualitatively and quantitatively. Then, 3D MR cisternography was performed in 400 patients with ear symptoms, and qualitative evaluation was performed. RESULTS: In volunteers, the average peak velocity of CSF was 1.2 cm/s. With TE = 250, CSF may move an average of 3 mm, and can be washed out of a 3-mm-thick 2D section volume. The CSF signal relative to that of a water phantom decreased gradually as TE increased on single-section 3-mm-thick 2D images. The CSF signal relative to that of the water phantom increased gradually as section thickness increased. No significant differences were noted in intravoxel dephasing and amplitude of the section-selecting gradient. The contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) between CSF and the cerebellar peduncle, and the visibility of the cranial nerves and vertebrobasilar artery were significantly improved on 3D images in 17 subjects. In images from 400 patients, no significant signal loss in the cistern was observed using 3D FSE. CONCLUSION: CSF signal loss in thin-section 2D MR cisternography is mainly attributable to the wash-out phenomenon. 3D acquisition can reduce this phenomenon and provide thinner sections. The scan time for 3D acquisition is not excessive when a long echo train length and half-Fourier imaging are used. MR cisternography should be performed using a 3D acquisition.  (+info)

Medical advice for commercial air travelers. (4/190)

Family physicians are often asked to advise patients who are preparing to travel. The Air Carrier Access Act of 1986 has enabled more passengers with medical disabilities to choose air travel. All domestic U.S. airlines are required to carry basic (but often limited) medical equipment, although several physiologic stresses associated with flight may predispose travelers with underlying medical conditions to require emergency care. Recommendations for passengers with respiratory, cardiac or postsurgical conditions must be individualized and should be based on objective testing measures. Specific advice for patients with diabetes, postsurgical or otolaryngologic conditions may make air travel less hazardous for these persons. Air travel should be delayed after scuba diving to minimize the chance of developing decompression sickness. Although no quick cure for jet lag exists, several simple suggestions may make travel across time zones more comfortable.  (+info)

Kimura's disease with bilateral auricular masses. (5/190)

We report an unusual case of Kimura's disease. An 81-year-old Japanese woman was shown to have bilateral auricular masses that had begun to enlarge 6 years before. On CT scans, slightly high-density masses with faint contrast enhancement were seen. The masses were heterogeneous and hypointense on T1-weighted MR images, were slightly hyperintense on T2-weighted MR images, and showed heterogeneous enhancement after the administration of contrast material. Kimura's disease should be included in the differential diagnosis of bilateral auricular tumors.  (+info)

Homogeneity of Danish environmental and clinical isolates of Shewanella algae. (6/190)

Danish isolates of Shewanella algae constituted by whole-cell protein profiling a very homogeneous group, and no clear distinction was seen between strains from the marine environment and strains of clinical origin. Although variation between all strains was observed by ribotyping and random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis, no clonal relationship between infective strains was found. From several patients, clonally identical strains of S. algae were reisolated up to 8 months after the primary isolation, indicating that the same strain may be able to maintain the infection.  (+info)

Topical fluoroquinolones for eye and ear. (7/190)

Topical fluoroquinolones are now available for use in the eye and ear. Their broad spectrum of activity includes the common eye and ear pathogens Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. For the treatment of acute otitis externa, these agents are as effective as previously available otic preparations. For the treatment of otitis media with tympanic membrane perforation, topical fluoroquinolones are effective and safe. These preparations are approved for use in children, and lack of ototoxicity permits prolonged administration when necessary. Topical fluoroquinolones are not appropriate for the treatment of uncomplicated conjunctivitis where narrower spectrum agents suffice; they represent a simplified regimen for the treatment of bacterial keratitis (corneal ulcers). When administered topically, fluoroquinolones are well tolerated and offer convenient dosing schedules. Currently, bacterial resistance appears limited.  (+info)

Most importantly, the underlying cause must be addressed in pets with chronic ear disease. Whenever I consult with an owner whose pet has a chronic infection of any type, I think of several things. First, while true food allergies are rare, improving the diet can help many pets, and finding the right food for the individual pet is crucial. I also worry about an underlying immune problem that predisposes to chronic infections. Therefore I always do something to support the immune system, and I make sure the pet is not suffering from allergies or adrenal or thyroid disease. Many dogs who swim frequently suffer ear and skin issues when the ears stay damp or are not cleaned after the swim.. Ear problems can be a bit frustrating for owners, as they can require time to respond, and often re-occur. They can also happen suddenly, requiring an urgent trip to the veterinarian. However, most patients do respond well to therapy with topical medications, immune support, and natural antimicrobials. With ...

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. BEIJING -- A disease killing pigs in southern China could spread with hotter summer weather, Chinas Agriculture Ministry warned Thursday.. The illness, which has killed at least 300 pigs, has been identified as a strain of blue ear disease, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Wednesday.. It is the season for peak outbreaks. High temperature and humidity could cause even more outbreaks in the summer and autumn, the Agriculture Ministry said in a notice on its Web site.. It is difficult to know how widespread the disease is because Chinas pig industry is fragmented, with many animals raised on small farms or by individual farmers, the notice said.. It said local governments must increase their reporting of new cases.. Xinhua said blue ear disease spread to China in the mid-1990s, but a new mutation has caused the recent outbreak.. Blue ear disease, also called porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, was first identified in the United States in 1987, according ...
The Bulldog Standard. The ears should be set high in the head, the front inner edge of each ear joining the outline of the skull at the top back corner of skull, so as to place them as wide apart, and as high, and as far from the eyes as possible. In size they should be small and thin. The shape termed rose ear is the most desirable. The rose ear folds inward at its back lower edge, the upper front edge curving over, outward and backward, showing part of the inside of the burr. (The ears should not be carried erect or prick-eared or buttoned and should never be cropped.). There are several factors causing ear disease in dogs. The most annoying are those producing the itching, pawing and scratching. Below are listed some of the some conditions that may cause ear disease in dogs:. ...

OBJECTIVE To determine whether adult cochlear implant (CI) users with superior canal dehiscence syndrome (SCDS) or asymptomatic superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SCD) have different surgical, vestibular, and audiologic outcomes when compared to CI users with normal temporal bone anatomy. METHODS A retrospective single institution review of CI users with either superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome or asymptomatic superior semicircular canal dehiscence identified eight post-lingually deafened adults with unilateral or bilateral cochlear implantation between 2006 and 2010. Preoperative and postoperative speech perception scores as well as medical and epidemiological data were recorded and analyzed. RESULTS One patient with superior canal dehiscence syndrome and seven patients with asymptomatic superior semicircular canal dehiscence were identified, representing 7% or 8/113 of CI patients that fulfilled selection criteria. Average dehiscence length was 3.3 mm ± 0.79 SEM. Three patients
Thinning or dehiscence of the superior semicircular canal may occur on the middle cranial fossa floor or adjacent to the superior petrosal sinus (SPS). However, no symptomatic cases of superior canal dehiscence by SPS have been previously described. A 45-year-old woman presented with left-side pulsating tinnitus, autophony and disequilibrium. Examination showed conductive hearing loss and decreased threshold of vestibular evoked myogenic potential in the left side. Sound and vibration stimuli and positive pressure insufflations into the left ear evoked mainly torsional nystagmus instead of vertical-torsional nystagmus. High-resolution temporal bone CT revealed a dehiscence of the superior canal close to the common crus, which was encased by SPS. Symptoms and signs resolved after plugging the dehiscence through a middle fossa approach. Deep groove of SPS may cause superior canal dehiscence close to the common crus, and costimulation of the superior and posterior canals may explain the mainly ...
This post was originally marked private by mistake. So some of this has changed.. I suffer from a Patulous Eustachian tube. Its an ear disorder where my Eustachian tubes pop open and so when I speak, it sounds as though I am shouting into my own ears (its called autophony). Ive had this problem since 6th or 7th grade, but I never knew what it was called until today. Ive seen a number of doctors about it, even to the point of surgery, but it was never properly diagnosed.. I used to sing and act.. Yes, thats past tense. In high school I was in 4 choirs, and I was always in rehearsal for a play at the local theatre. Its part of why I went to college for film and theatre. I wanted to perform and I wanted to direct performers.. But toward the end of high school, the problems with my ears started to get worse. Projecting my voice became difficult because even speaking at a normal volume is the equivalent of shouting when the tubes are open. So I started seeing doctors and specialists about it. ...

Excessive/Impacted Cerumen Approximately 6% of the general population and 30% of the elderly population experiences episodes of impacted cerumen, and it is thought to be one of the most prevalent otic disorders.1 Individuals with excessive or impacted cerumen may experience a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear and possibly a gradual loss of hearing. In addition, some may experience a dull sensation of pain. Carbamide peroxide 6.5% in anhydrous glycerin is the only FDA-approved nonprescription cerumen-softening agent for the softening and removal of excessive earwax in individuals 12 years of age and older. Cerumen-softening products can be used twice daily for up to 4 days. If symptoms persist after a 4-day period, patients should be referred to their primary care provider to seek further treatment. Water-Clogged Ears Due to the shape of an individuals ear canal, some patients may be more prone to an increased incidence of water-clogged ears. Excessive cerumen may also cause swelling, ...
Over the last few months the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) have been consulting on making changes to the regulations on domestic sewage systems in England. DEFRA has set out a clear objective of extending its risk-based approach to permitting. It represents a new focus on environmental permitting that will only be required in or near designated sensitive areas such as national and local nature reserves or sites of protected species and habitats.. What Does This Mean?. It means that the regulations surrounding discharges from domestic sewage systems will no longer be in place. However, although discharges such as these will not require permits, they would still be subject to general binding rules specifying that the system must be properly installed and maintained.

CT scans work by constructing a series of cross-sectional x-ray images of the body as it is passed through a circular gantry. The gantry houses an x-ray tube and a detector assembly, which rotates around the patient. CT scans are particularly good for detecting bone injuries, imaging the lungs and chest, and discerning tumors. The ability to readily produce three dimensional images is a significant advantage of this type of scan versus a regular, two-dimensional x-ray. With respect to diagnosing middle ear disease, CT scans allow us to see the entire middle ear and determine whether it is filled with air (normal) or fluid (infected). Additionally, calculations taken from the scan can tell us the consistency of the fluid in the ear.. On October 23, we brought Townsend to WHOI-CSI for a CT scan. Sadly, the scan confirmed middle ear disease.. We discussed a variety of options including continued treatment, surgery, release without treatment, and euthanasia.

Ototoxicity has been observed in up to 31% of patients treated with a single dose of PLATINOL 50 mg/m², and is manifested by tinnitus and/or hearing loss in the high frequency range (4000 to 8000 Hz). The prevelance of hearing loss in children is particularly high and is estimated to be 40-60%. Decreased ability to hear normal conversational tones may occur. Deafness after the initial dose of PLATINOL has been reported. Ototoxic effects may be more severe in children receiving PLATINOL.. Hearing loss can be unilateral or bilateral and tends to become more frequent and severe with repeated cisplatin doses. It is unclear whether PLATINOL-induced ototoxicity is reversible. Vestibular toxicity has also been reported. Ototoxic effects may be related to the peak plasma concentration of cisplatin. Ototoxicity can occur during treatment or be delayed. Audiometric monitoring should be performed prior to initiation of therapy, prior to each subsequent dose, and for several years post therapy.. The risk ...

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Based on a survey in 1898, 40 species of vascular aquatic flowering plants were reported for Put-in-Bay harbor in western Lake Erie. Studies of this flora at various times since then have revealed a loss of species from this harbor to the extent that today 20 species of the original 40, or 50%, of the flora has disappeared. Only three of the original 40 can be considered to be common or abundant today in the harbor. During the same 70-year period, only four submersed species have invaded the harbor. Possible reasons for these changes, such as increase in water temperature, decrease in oxygen, increase in turbidity, and mans influence on the harbor by dredging, building retaining walls, increasing use of motor boats, dumping of domestic sewage, and runoff from agricultural land are all con-sidered as possible factors that have, independently and interrelatedly, in part or in total, been responsible for this 50 % loss in species

TY - CHAP. T1 - Immune-Mediated Inner Ear Disease. AU - Lunardi, Claudio. AU - Puccetti, Antonio. PY - 2013/12. Y1 - 2013/12. N2 - Inner ear damage can be caused by viral infections, trauma, vascular damage, and immune mechanisms, and is responsible for sensorineural hearing loss, a syndrome characterized by rapid progression of hearing impairment that is frequently non-responsive to medical treatment. Immune-mediated inner ear disease can be of autoimmune origin either as an isolated process affecting only the ear, to be considered as an organ-specific autoimmune disease, or as part of a systemic autoimmune disorder in approximately 30% of cases. The incidence and prevalence of autoimmune inner ear disease is unknown due to the lack of reliable diagnostic tests and to the limited access to the site of autoimmune aggression. Since the rapid administration of steroids and/or other immunosuppressive agents may result in hearing preservation, a great effort is needed in order to find both clinical ...

Eustachian tube dysfunction-related symptom improvement due to surgery of the anterior half of the inferior turbinate was found to be equal to placebo.. ...
Air-fluid space is what the middle ear represents. This means there is always some amount of fluid there. But when fluid increases in the ear it generally causes pulsing in ear no matter what was the reason of actual increase. It can be infection, or inflammation, or Eustachian tube dysfunction.. When it comes to chronic inflammation, the blood flow in the middle ear increases especially to the part of the ear that is inflamed and therefore the heartbeat is heard so well - the sensitivity of ear increases.. In a normal healthy state the tubes open and close when a person makes chewing, swallowing, or yawning movements, or while speaking. However in such illnesses as cold and sinusitis, also allergies or excessive earwax the tube gets blocked. This is called Eustachian tube dysfunction and it causes pulsing in ear. All the above mentioned cases of pulsing in ear can be alleviated with antibiotics, decongestants and nasal steroid sprays treatment.. ...

This post was originally marked private by mistake. So some of this has changed.. I suffer from a Patulous Eustachian tube. Its an ear disorder where my Eustachian tubes pop open and so when I speak, it sounds as though I am shouting into my own ears (its called autophony). Ive had this problem since 6th or 7th grade, but I never knew what it was called until today. Ive seen a number of doctors about it, even to the point of surgery, but it was never properly diagnosed.. I used to sing and act.. Yes, thats past tense. In high school I was in 4 choirs, and I was always in rehearsal for a play at the local theatre. Its part of why I went to college for film and theatre. I wanted to perform and I wanted to direct performers.. But toward the end of high school, the problems with my ears started to get worse. Projecting my voice became difficult because even speaking at a normal volume is the equivalent of shouting when the tubes are open. So I started seeing doctors and specialists about it. ...

A 44-year-old man in Dartmouth, Massachusetts can finally hear normally after a decade of being tormented by the sounds of his own body. For 10 years, Manny Pavao was afflicted with superior canal dehiscence syndrome, caused by a tiny hole in the bone that separates the inner ear from the brain.
Introduction Otitis media with effusion (OME) continues to be an important pediatric clinical problem, and more studies are needed to decide the proper treatment for it. Objective To assess the efficacy of nasal steroids in the management of OME by comparing its results with that of oral steroid and that of nasal saline spray as placebo. Methods This study was carried on 60 patients with OME who were divided into three groups: in group 1, 20 patients received mometasone furoate spray, one puff in each nostril daily, for 3 months; in group 2, 20 patients received oral prednisolone, 5 mg three times per day for the first 3 weeks; in group 3, 20 patients received nasal saline spray, one puff in each nostril daily for 3 months ...
Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a yellowish, waxy substance secreted in the ear canals. It plays an important role in the human ear canal, assisting in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, and insects. Excess or impacted cerumen can press against the eardrum and/or occlude the external auditory canal and impair hearing. ...
The Eustachian tube is a narrow structure running between the air-filled middle ear space and the back of the nose. It is designed to allow ventilation of the middle ear, but in around 5% of the adult population, the tube fails to open adequately, causing many different types of ear disease. Balloon Eustachian Tuboplasty (BET) is a new minimally-invasive technique using a narrow balloon to stretch the Eustachian tube and has recently been used in patients. The aim of this project is to study the biomechanics of balloon inflation within human Eustachian tube tissue. In parallel, physical and 3D computer-based models will be created to add to our clinical observations, and provide methods of testing innovative adaptations to the procedure, and new equipment modifications. The project is a collaboration with Matt Smith and James Tysome in the ENT Department at Addenbrookes Hospital, with the help of a Engineering for Clinical Practice grant undertaken by MEng students Daisy Prior and Anna Weir ...

We are typically asked why we have earwax in Oxford. It is not as a result of inadequate health as many people assume, however a clever mix of ingredients which have a crucial function in safeguarding as well as cleaning our ears.In enhancement to capturing dirt and also any scary crawlies, ear wax lubricates the skin, and also offers anti-inflammatory as well as anti-bacterial properties - ensuring the ear is kept healthy and balanced. Earwax normally moves out of our ears. In fact, whenever we chat, chew or yawn we are motivating this process. Whilst lots of people stay untouched by ear wax troubles, ear wax can be a real issue for some.So how would certainly you know if you had an earwax develop if you cant see it? The most typical signs and symptoms are a blocked feeling, a drop in hearing, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), lightheadedness as well as pain. The most effective way to clean the ears is to use a cozy clean cloth when in the shower, as well as delicately clean the external ear as ...

Cerumen, or earwax, is normally expelled from the ear canal by a self-cleaning mechanism assisted by jaw movement. Physicians should diagnose impaction only when an accumulation of cerumen is associated with symptoms (e.g., otalgia, tinnitus, vertigo) or prevents necessary assessment of the ear.

Q: A day after flying, I start feeling inner-ear pressure and become very ill. My head hurts, and I feel dizzy and so nauseated that I vomit. Some symptoms last six months. My doctor put pressure equalization tubes in my ears, which helped but kept falling out. Now he wants to try larger tubes, but they require general anesthesia. Any advice? - Linda, via email. A: If you fly twice a year, youre spending most of the year feeling sick, so put on your big-girl pants and get a second opinion - as you should with any surgery. When you do, ask about other options, including whether the procedure can be done under a local anesthetic. But lets clarify the problem so everyone knows why youre having this trouble.. When you fly, your ears are subject to wild air-pressure swings. During takeoff, as cabin pressure plummets, pressure builds in your middle ear, where the eardrum is. A little air bubble is released through your eustachian tubes (tiny canals that connect the middle ear to your nose and ...

  • Because the existence of autoimmune inner ear disease (AIED) has been recognized only since 1979, incidence is difficult to determine. (
  • As diagnostic tests for the condition become more specific and more is known about AIED, more patients will be identified who have an autoimmune basis for inner ear symptoms. (
  • Autoimmune inner ear disease or AIED is basically an inflammatory condition that affects the inner ear and is caused by an attack of the immune system on cells of the inner ear. (
  • It is pretty clear that the AIED is caused by some dysfunction in which antibodies produced by the immune system or immune cells attack and damage the inner ear. (
  • Because of the similarity of symptoms to otitis media, AIED is not easy to diagnose and is usually only detected when it begins to affect the second ear. (
  • The main symptom of AIED is a sudden loss of hearing in one ear that progresses quickly to the other ear. (

  • There are several theories that propose a cause of AIED: Bystander damage - Physical damage to the inner ear may lead to cytokine release that signals for an immune response. (
  • Autoimmune inner ear disease (AIED) is a rare disease that results in progressive sensorineural hearing loss. (

(
  • For this process to work correctly, fluid in the inner ear must be at the right volume and pressure. (
  • Abnormality in the amount of fluid is considered as the main cause of this disease. (
  • This excess fluid creates a pressure, which in turn affects the delicate structure of inner ear that is responsible for balancing and hearing. (
  • This is due to excess amount of fluid present in the inner ear. (
  • The underlying cause of the condition has not yet been identified but the most believed theories are that an imbalance of fluid pressure between different parts of the inner ear is responsible. (
  • It is presumed that the inner ear pressure increases transiently because the inner ear is interconnected with the cerebrospinal fluid space via the cochlear and vestibular aqueducts. (
