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.
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.
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.

A single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of a simple acupuncture treatment in the cessation of smoking. (1/470)

BACKGROUND: Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable disease and premature death. Physicians should play an active role in the control of smoking by encouraging cessation and helping the smoker to choose the most suitable aid to cessation. AIM: To evaluate a simple, ear acupuncture treatment for the cessation of smoking. METHOD: Randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 78 currently smoking volunteers from the general public. Volunteers attended an acupuncture clinic in a general practice setting and were given a single treatment of electroacupuncture using two needles at either an active or a placebo site plus self-retained ear seeds for two weeks. The major outcome measure was biochemically validated total cessation of smoking at six months. RESULTS: A total of 12.5% of the active treatment group compared with 0% of the placebo group ceased smoking at six months (P = 0.055, 95% confidence interval -0.033 to 0.323). CONCLUSION: This simple ear electroacupuncture treatment was significantly more effective in helping volunteers to quit smoking than placebo treatment.  (+info)

Precontraction with elevated concentrations of extracellular potassium enables both 5-HT1B and 5-HT2A "silent" receptors in rabbit ear artery. (3/470)

The present study was conducted to determine the effect of a small (<10%) K+-induced precontraction on the response to vasoconstrictors in the rabbit aorta and ear artery rings. In both tissues, 15 mM K+ shifted the methoxamine concentration response curve (CRC) approximately 2.4-fold to the left. There was no change in the sensitivity of the control and amplified CRCs to the alpha1 adrenoceptor antagonist prazosin (100 nM). In the aorta, the CRC for serotonin was shifted 4.5-fold to the left in the presence of 15 mM K+, and both the control and amplified CRCs were antagonized equally by the 5-HT2A antagonist ketanserin (10 nM). In contrast, 16 and 20 mM K+ caused up to an approximately 60-fold leftward shift of the serotonin CRC in the rabbit ear artery. This effect of 16 mM K+ was not altered by mechanical removal of the endothelium or by in vitro denervation using 6-hydroxydopamine. The K+-amplified CRC was insensitive to 100 nM prazosin at serotonin concentrations below 3 microM, but was significantly antagonized by 10 nM ketanserin, suggesting that 5-HT2A receptors are involved in the K+-amplified response. The 5-HT1B-selective antagonist, GR 127935, did not affect control responses to serotonin, but significantly blocked the K+-amplified response. Furthermore, the combination of ketanserin and GR 127935 produced a significantly greater blockade of the amplified response than either antagonist alone, supporting the conclusion that both 5-HT2A and 5-HT1B receptors mediate the K+-amplified response to serotonin in the rabbit ear artery.  (+info)

Clinical characteristics of CHARGE syndrome. (4/470)

CHARGE syndrome, first described by Pagon, was named for its six major clinical features. They are: coloboma of the eye, heart defects, atresia of the choanae, retarded growth and development including CNS anomalies, genital hypoplasia and/or urinary tract anomalies, and ear anomalies and/or hearing loss. We experienced three cases of CHARGE syndrome who displayed ocular coloboma, heart defects, retarded growth and development, and external ear anomalies, and we also review the previously reported literature concerning CHARGE syndrome.  (+info)

Experimental infusion phlebitis: tolerance pH of peripheral vein. (5/470)

This study aims to determine the pH that peripheral veins can tolerate. Intravenous nutrient solutions with different pHs (from 4.52 to 6.71) were infused into rabbit ear veins, and the veins were examined histopathologically. After 6-hr infusion at 10 mL/kg/hr, a commercial 2.72% amino acid/7.5% glucose solution with electrolytes (AG) caused obvious phlebitic changes, such as loss of venous endothelial cells, inflammatory cell infiltration, and perivascular edema, in all 6 rabbits because of its low pH (4.52) and high titratable acidity (22 mEq/L). The phlebitis was reduced when the solution was neutralized with NaOH to pH 5.93, and was almost eliminated when the pH was neutralized to 6.49. After 8-hr infusion at 15 mL/kg/hr, AG-adjusted pH to 6.30 caused slight phlebitic changes, but AG-adjusted pH to 6.71 scarcely caused any change. Furthermore, 24-hr infusion of the pH 6.49 solution caused no histopathological changes in 3 rabbits. These results suggest that the tolerance pH for the peripheral vein is about 6.5, and that an infusion solution does not cause phlebitis due to acidity if the pH is not lower than the tolerance pH.  (+info)

A study of NPY-mediated contractions of the porcine isolated ear artery. (6/470)

Enhanced contractions of the porcine isolated ear artery by the alpha2-adrenoceptor agonist UK14304 are uncovered by pharmacological manipulation. As both neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptors and alpha2-adrenoceptors are negatively-coupled to adenylyl cyclase in this tissue, we determined whether NPY is also able to produce an enhanced contraction in the same tissue, under the same conditions. NPY (0.1 microM) produced a small contraction of porcine isolated ear arteries which was 5.1+/-0.8% of the response to 60 mM KCl (n = 14). An enhanced NPY response was uncovered if the tissue was pre-contracted with 0.1 microM U46619, and relaxed back to baseline with 1-2 microM forskolin before the addition of NPY (49.8+/-5.3%, n = 14). Forskolin (1 microM) stimulated cyclic AMP accumulation in porcine ear artery segments in the presence of 0.1 microM U46619 and 1 mM isobutylmethylxanthine (IBMX), NPY (0.1 microM) inhibited this response by 40%, but had no effect on basal levels of cyclic AMP. An enhanced response to 0.1 microM NPY was also obtained after pre-contraction with 0.1 microM U46619 and relaxation with either SNP (28.9+/-5.7%, n = 14), or dibutyryl cyclic AMP (21.2+/-4.6%, n = 14). This indicates that at least part of the enhanced response to NPY is independent of the agonist's ability to inhibit adenylyl cyclase. In conclusion, an enhanced contraction to NPY in the porcine isolated ear artery can be obtained by prior pharmacological manipulation. The enhanced responses are mediated through adenylyl cyclase-dependent and independent pathways similar to those reported for alpha2-adrenoceptors in this preparation.  (+info)

Nickel allergy in mice: enhanced sensitization capacity of nickel at higher oxidation states. (7/470)

Attempts to induce contact hypersensitivity to nickel in mice using, e.g., Ni(II)Cl2 often failed. Here, we report that sensitization was achieved by injecting Ni(II)Cl2 in combination with either CFA or an irritant, such as SDS and PMA, or IL-12, or by administering nickel at higher oxidation states, i.e., Ni(III) and Ni(IV). Although Ni(II), given alone, was ineffective in T cell priming, it sufficed for eliciting recall responses in vivo and in vitro, suggesting that Ni(II) is able to provide an effective signal 1 for T cell activation, but is unable to provide an adequate signal 2 for priming. Immunization of mice with nickel-binding proteins pretreated with Ni(IV), but not with Ni(II), allowed them to generate nickel-specific CD4+ T cell hybridomas. Ni(II) sufficed for restimulation of T cell hybridomas; in this and other aspects as well, the hybridomas resembled the nickel-specific human T cell clones reported in the literature. Interestingly, restimulation of hybridomas did not require the original Ni(IV)-protein complex used for priming, suggesting either that the nickel ions underwent ligand exchange toward unknown self proteins or peptides or that nickel recognition by the TCR is carrier-independent. In conclusion, we found that Ni(III) and Ni(IV), but not Ni(II) alone, were able to sensitize naive T cells. Since both Ni(III) and Ni(IV) can be generated from Ni(II) by reactive oxygen species, released during inflammation, our findings might explain why in humans nickel contact dermatitis develops much more readily in irritated than in normal skin.  (+info)

Leukotriene B4 receptor transgenic mice reveal novel protective roles for lipoxins and aspirin-triggered lipoxins in reperfusion. (8/470)

Polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) activation is pivotal in acute inflammation and injury from reperfusion. To elucidate components controlling PMNs in vivo, we prepared novel transgenic mice with the human leukotriene (LT) B4 receptor (BLTR) for functional characterization. Overexpression of BLTR in leukocytes dramatically increased PMN trafficking to skin microabscesses and lungs after ischemia-reperfusion, whereas mice deficient in 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) showed diminished PMN accumulation in reperfused lungs. Hence, both BLTR expression and LT biosynthesis are critical for PMN infiltration in reperfusion-initiated second-organ injury. Also, in BLTR transgenic mice, 5-LO expression and product formation were selectively increased in exudates, demonstrating that receptor overexpression amplifies proinflammatory circuits. Endogenous lipoxin (LX) A4 was produced in ischemic lungs and elevated by reperfusion. Because LXA4 and aspirin-triggered 15-epimeric LXA4 (ATL) selectively regulate leukocyte responses, they were tested in BLTR transgenic mice. Despite excessive PMN recruitment in BLTR transgenic mice, intravenous injection of ATL sharply diminished reperfusion-initiated PMN trafficking to remote organs, and topical application of LX was protective in acute dermal inflammation. These results demonstrate a direct role for BLTR with positive feedback, involving BLTR and 5-LO signaling in controlling PMNs. Moreover, LXA4 and ATL counter BLTR-amplified networks, revealing a novel protective role for LX and ATL in stress responses that has applications in perioperative medicine.  (+info)

This study compared the effects of unilateral and bilateral auricular transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on cutaneous pain threshold. Auricular acupuncture points were stimulated with low frequency, high intensity TENS for 45 seconds. Sixty healthy, adult subjects were assigned randomly to one of two treatment groups or to a control group. The two treatment groups received low frequency, high intensity TENS either unilaterally or bilaterally. The control group did not receive auricular stimulation. Experimental pain threshold at the left wrist was determined with a painful stimulus before and after auricular stimulation. Both unilateral and bilateral auricular stimulation groups exhibited a significant increase (p
Description of disease Earlobe creases. Treatment Earlobe creases. Symptoms and causes Earlobe creases Prophylaxis Earlobe creases
A preauricular sinus (also known as a congenital auricular fistula, a congenital preauricular fistula, a Geswein hole, an ear pit, or a preauricular cyst) is a common congenital malformation characterized by a nodule, dent or dimple located anywhere adjacent to the external ear. Frequency of preauricular sinus differs depending the population: 0.1-0.9% in the US, 0.9% in the UK, and 4-10% in Asia and parts of Africa. Comparative frequency is known to be higher in Africans and Asians than in Caucasians. Preauricular sinuses are inherited features, and most often appear unilaterally. They are present bilaterally in 25-50% of cases.[citation needed] Preauricular sinuses and cysts result from developmental defects of the first and second pharyngeal arches. This and other congenital ear malformations are sometimes associated with renal anomalies. They may be present in Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, and in rare cases, they may be associated with branchio-oto-renal syndrome.[citation needed] ...

The diagonal ear lobe crease (DELC) has been characterized in the medical literature as a surrogate marker which can identify high risk patients having occult atherosclerosis. This topic however has not been examined in either the medical or dental literature emanating from Spain. The majority of clinical, angiography and postmortem reports support the premise that DELC is a valuable extravascular physical sign able to distinguish some patients at risk of succumbing to atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries. A minority of studies have however failed to support this hypothesis. More recently reports using B mode ultrasound have also linked DELC to atherosclerosis of the carotid artery and another report has related DELC to the presence of calcified carotid artery atheromas on panoramic radiographs. DELC is readily visible ...
Years of wearing heavy earrings can leave you with an enlarged and unsightly ear piercing. Or worse, you can develop a completely split ear lobe (see photos). Sometimes, an earring can get caught on some clothing and one quick pull can leave with you a painful, traumatically torn ear lobe.. Repair of an ear lobe is a minor procedure that is done under local anesthesia. It involves trimming away the skin that has healed within the split, and then suturing the two sides back together to give a symmetric and pleasing appearance. We would recommend a period of several months before re-piercing your ear. This procedure is generally not covered by insurance. Ask your doctor at Suburban Ear, Nose, and Throat about repair of a torn ear lobe.. ...
Many people with protruding or misshapen ears are extremely self-conscious about the problem, and otoplasty can be a great solution for this insecurity. People that have had an otoplasty feel that they can wear their hair short or wear it up, so that the ears are more visible. Otoplasty can accomplish a number of aesthetic goals, depending on the type of abnormality that is being addressed. A sample of the abnormalities treated with otoplasty surgery include:. Large and/or Protruding Ears This is by far the most common reason that people seek otoplasty surgery. Large and protruding ears often go hand in hand, and can be a source of embarrassment for those who have them. Otoplasty can reduce the size of the ears and pull them in toward the head for a more proportional appearance.. Abnormally Large or Split Earlobes Earlobes can start out large, or they can become saggy over time, even splitting due to age or years of wearing heavy earrings. A simple surgery can repair, re-size, and re-contour the ...

Otoplasty, or ear pinning is a surgical procedure designed to treat prominent ears and is performed on both children and adults. Malformed ears can be a significant source of stress for you or your child. As the ear forms, some areas of the ear can become more prominent, while others can lose their strength and cause prolapse or flopping. There are many different types of anatomical abnormalities. As a dual board certified surgeon in both Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery (Ears Nose and Throat Surgery), and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Undavia is specifically qualified to reconstruct the ear.. Most patients complain of the how prominent or large their ears appear. Others are more concerned with a prominent ear lobe, a cupped ear, or a floppy ear. Athletes (mainly wrestlers) can develop an auricular hematoma, or even a cauliflower ear after repeated auricular hematomas. In rare instances, the ear is congenitally malformed in a condition called aural atresia ...
External Ear infection - Otitis Externa. With frequent immersion, water swells the cells lining the ear canal. Eventually, these cells pull apart - far enough for the bacteria normally found on the surface of your ear canal to get underneath the skin, where they find a nice warm environment and start to multiply. Next thing you know, your ear canal itches, is sore and becomes inflamed. If left untreated, the swelling can spread to the nearby lymph nodes and cause enough pain that moving your jaw becomes uncomfortable. At this point, the only treatment is antibiotics, and diving is definitely out. In some cases a discharge coming out of the external ear can be noticed. Pain with ear tugging distinguishes external ear problems from middle ear infection, where this is painless.. A special diving mask (Pro-Ear) with special air cuffs connected to the mask is commercially available and reduces the possibility of external ear infections. Also available are ear drops or sprays containing Tea Tree Oil ...

Infections involving the structures of the external ear are often difficult to differentiate from noninfectious inflammatory conditions with similar clinical manifestations. Clinicians should consider inflammatory disorders as a possible cause of external ear irritation, particularly in the absence of local or regional adenopathy. Aside from the more salient causes of inflammation, such as trauma, insect bite, and overexposure to sunlight or extreme cold, the differential diagnosis should include less common conditions, such as autoimmune disorders (e.g., lupus or relapsing polychondritis) and vasculitides (e.g., Wegeners granulomatosis). Auricular Cellulitis Auricular cellulitis is an infection of the skin overlying the external ear and typically follows minor local trauma. It presents with the typical signs and symptoms of a skin/ soft tissue infection, with tenderness, erythema, swelling, and warmth of the external ear (particularly the lobule), but without apparent involvement of the ear ...

Dr. Michael Wald, a holistic doctor in Mount Kisco, N.Y. who calls himself the Blood Detective, said that people should pay attention to features like creases in their ears and the length of their arms because they can serve as clues to medical issues such as heart disease.. 1. Ear Crease A 74-year-old man with an increased risk for heart disease said that while hed noticed the crease in his ear, hed paid little to no attention to it..

One study found that 71 percent of people with that crease suffered from heart disease.. 2. Ear Wax Wald said that even ear wax has been linked to heart disease.. Were ...

Protruding, disfigured or very large ears can cause embarrassment and negative feelings in a child. The ears are fully developed by age four or five and able to be surgically refined with otoplasty surgery at any time after this age. During this procedure a small incision is made behind the ear and cartilage and skin is removed or reshaped. A slight scar remains at the incision site, but this is located well behind the ear and will fade with time. The patient has a head dressing for a short time post operatively, one to two days, which will be changed to a lighter, less cumbersome headband which is worn for a week. Discomfort is minimal and easily controlled with appropriate medication. It is important that the child desires this surgery, as he or she will be more cooperative during the surgical process and post-operative recovery period. Otoplasty creates a natural, more balanced appearance of the ears, and can have a profound impact on a childs appearance and self-esteem. To discuss otoplasty ...

Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Bistritz on misshapen ear lobes: This is not a common request and certainly collagen would accomplish a temporary increase in the side of the earlobe but it may feel unnecessarily firm and would not be my first choice. If a patient made this request, i would recommend the use of hyaluronic acid fillers as the initial filler.

My son Hudson was born January 6th, 2016. He was born perfectly healthy and all appeared fine. Within two weeks he developed a small red mark right next to his right ear that at first glance resembled heat rash. Within a few weeks it had grown a lot and appeared to distort his ear lobe. Everyone who saw it referred to it as a strawberry birthmark and told us not to worry it would go away on its own. Thankfully our pediatrician recommended that we go for a consultation with a vascular birthmarks specialist in New York, Dr. Gregory Levitin. So in April we met with Dr. Levitin who confirmed it was a hemangioma and recommended the oral medication Hemangeol and laser therapy. Obviously no parent wants to put their child on medication but Dr. Levitin put our worries at ease going over side effects and complications to watch out for. Laser therapy was a bit more complicated for us as we live in New Jersey and no physicians wanted to do laser therapy on a child of Hudsons age. Luckily Dr. Levitin was ...

The first thing that comes to mind when ear surgery is in question is prominent ears. Prominent ear is a problem that may be an object of ridicule especially during childhood and may create strain on childrens psychology. Contrary to other organs, ear completes its development around the age of 6. Therefore, correction of protruding ear is possible starting from age 6.. Prominent ear surgery (otoplasty) is performed behind the ear. Primarily, cartilage deformities are exposed and corrected by the simple suture technique. Ear surgery is performed under local anesthesia, local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Duration of the surgery is around 1-1.5 hours. It generally does not require hospitalization. There might be some swelling and sensitivity in the early days. Though one can resume daily activities pretty quickly, it is important to protect the ears with a head band for 2-3 weeks. ...
Preauricular cysts, pits (as shown below), fissures, and sinuses are benign congenital malformations of the preauricular soft tissues first described by Van Heusinger in 1864. Preauricular pits or fissures are located near the front of the ear and mark the entrance to a sinus tract that may travel under the skin near the ear cartilage.
Specific procedural steps taken will depend largely on what is being accomplished during the procedure. For protruding ears, Dr. Beck typically makes small incisions behind the ear, through which he can reshape the ear and adjust the ear fold. Cartilage may also be removed or reshaped to get the final look you want.. The results of otoplasty can be life changing, especially for children and teens who have been bullied or otherwise suffered emotionally because of protruding ears. After the procedure, the ears will look more natural and will be balanced with the size and shape of the face. These changes can be very important to boosting self-esteem and feeling more confident..

One ear lobe will be treated with Juvista following keloid excision and one with placebo ...

PY - 2017/7/1. Y1 - 2017/7/1. N2 - Objectives: There are limited data on the effect of otoplasty on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in prominent ears. There are no data on the effect of otoplasty on Glasgow Benefit Inventory (GBI) of otoplasty using hybrid techniques in adult patients. Methods: This study involved 28 patients who underwent otoplasty using combined procedures. We chose the GBI because it is a sensitive tool for detecting changes in health status following an intervention. Patients older than 13 years received the GBI, being retrospective well-validated questionnaires for measuring the effect of otorhinolaryngologic interventions, and particularly plastic surgery procedures, on HRQoL. An individual questionnaire was created by the standard GBI. We combined posterior auricular skin ...

flickr size=medium float=right]5481294323[/flickr]. Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of the auricle of the external ear to diagnose and treat health conditions in other parts of the body. The auricle could be compared to an inverted fetus, with the head represented on the lower ear lobe, the feet at the top of the external ear, and the rest of the body in-between.. Modern applications of this method are based on the work of Dr. Paul Nogier from France who practiced in the 1950s. In recognition of Nogiers discoveries and research on the auricle, the Chinese Government honored him by awarding him a formal title Father of Modern Auricular Therapy.. Dr. Michael Smith is recognized internationally as the psychiatrist who pioneered the use of these procedures in the field of chemical dependency. He developed an accepted auricular therapy protocol at Lincoln Hospital, New York. In 1987, the program was redesigned to focus on court-related referrals.

The most common cause of prominent ears is lack of an antihelical fold, normally present just inside the rim of the ear. A wide concha or bowl of the ear can also contribute to prominence of the ear. Otoplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct prominent ears.. Children become self-conscious about their appearance at age 5-7 years, therefore making this the most common time for otoplasty procedures.. Children can typically be treated any time after 4 years of age, when the ear is nearly adult sized. The technique of otoplasty uses an incision on the back of the ears that is hidden from view. Through this incision, the antihelical fold can be created and the height of the conchal bowl can be reduced. Nicely positioned ears are symmetrical and their rims are between 15 and 20 mm from the side of the head.. The surgery itself is simple and reliable in most cases, providing an expert carries out the operation. Usually, the child can go home on the day of surgery. Our pediatric craniofacial ...

An Irish study of 247 patients found ELC had a predictive value of 71 percent for heart disease, showing what statisticians call low sensitivity but high specificity. Translated: If you dont have ELC, that doesnt necessarily mean you dont have heart disease, but if you do have ELC, its a pretty good bet you do. (To be fair, other research hasnt found as strong a correlation.). Why a connection between ELC and heart disease? Nobody knows. The most plausible theory Ive heard is that ELC indicates premature aging.. You dont have creased lobes? Youre not off the hook yet. We continue with our checklist of heart disease signs:. Male pattern baldness. The largest study, which looked at more than 22,000 male doctors over 11 years, found men with frontal baldness were about 9 percent more likely to have heart disease than their nonbalding peers, while those with baldness at the crown of their heads were 23 to 36 percent more likely-and the balder you are, the higher the risk. On the plus side, ...

Introduction Communication is among the most basic of human needs. Verbal communication is the highest level of communication, whereas nonverbal (nonsymbolic) communication may remain the only mode of communication in individuals with significant cognitive limitation. Assessment of nonsymbolic skills of two categories of patients with limited verbal output, namely, those with autism [autistic disorder (AD)] and those with Down syndrome (DS), is our main aim. We used the Dynamic Assessment of Nonsymbolic Communication (DANC) test to achieve our aim, because most traditional language tests underestimate this type of communication. Insight into the nonverbal communication abilities of AD and DS patients helps to maintain the communication between them and their caregivers.. Participants and methods The current study recruited 20 patients with DS, 20 patients with AD, and 20 normal children as controls. The age of the AD and DS patients ranged from 2 to 5 years, whereas the age of controls ranged ...

A variety of surgical techniques have been described to correct protruding ears. These must be carefully selected on an individual basis. Professor Gassner prefers an integrated concept based on exact and detailed anatomic analysis of the required changes. Your ear may be divided into three horizontal thirds. The upper third from the top edge of the ear to the roof of the external ear canal, the central third and the lobule. Deformities of the upper third of the ear are typically caused by the shape of the underlying cartilage (the antihelix). Changes in the shape of the central third are frequently caused by increased soft tissue bulk between the bone of the skull as well as the shape of the central cartilage of your ear (the concha). Changes in the shape of the lobule are usually caused by the soft tissue attachments of the lobule to the cartilaginous skeleton of the ear. According to the extent of your individual deformity, Professor Gassner selects the appropriate technique.. The techniques ...
A 14-year-old, previously healthy, fully immunized girl is presented to the emergency department (ED) with a 2-week history of left ear pain and discharge. She has just completed a 10-day course of antibiotic therapy, prescribed by her primary care provider, for marked left ear pain and swelling with purulent bloody discharge, headache, and left temporal and facial pain.

Her vital signs include a temperature of 97.9°F (36.6°C), a regular heart rate of 86 bpm, a respiratory rate of 16 breaths/min, and a blood pressure of 110/80 mm Hg. On examination of the head, swelling and tenderness are noted behind the left ear lobe, with purulent bloody discharge from the left ear. The central nervous ...
The intraglandular nodes receive some lymph vessels originating from the skin of the frontal and temporal regions, lateral parts of the lids, from the lacrymal gland, external auditory canal, tympanic membrane and eustachian tube, and lastly, a part of the efferent vessels from the superficial preauricular nodes [1, 2].. Overall the parotid lymph nodes drain the frontal and temporal cranial vault, the nose, upper and lower lids, auricle and external auditory, tympanic membrane and part of the eustachian tube, superficial preauricular nodes, posterior part of cheek, parotid gland, external ear, mastoid space nodes and lacrymal glands.. The parotid gland is also involved in metastases from oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal malignancies that may affect both superficial and deep intraglandular lymph nodes [7].

Introduction to Deafness/Hearing Loss. The hearing mechanism consists of 3 parts-outer, middle and inner ear. The outer ear is made up of the external ear and the ear canal. It ends with the tympanic membrane or ear drum. The middle ear is made up of the ear drum and an air filled cavity which contains the 3 tiniest bones in your body, the ossicles. The inner ear is made up of the semicircular canals (that deal with balance), the cochlea (a shell shaped object the size of a pea that perceives sounds at different pitches) and then the auditory nerve that leads to the brain where sound is perceived. Hearing impairments can take on different forms - either a partial loss of hearing or a total loss of hearing referred to as deafness. Hearing loss is categorized as mild, moderate, severe or profound. All have impact upon communication with others. Individuals who are deaf must learn to read lips or learn sign language or cued speech to communicate. Individuals with hearing loss often use technology ...

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had my ears pinned back six weeks ago. Before surgery one ear did stick out further than the other and, even after surgery, it still does. Although both ears are much better looking they are still not as good as I had hoped. I would be happy if the left ear was brought back further to match the other one.

The final results are a mixture of skillful placement, tightening and their ability to hold as the tissues heal. Between swelling and tissue relaxation it will take up to six months after surgery to see the final result. Besides a good shape, it is also important to have symmetry between the two ears. Even though both ears are rarely seen at the same time, it is still important to have them look as close as possible. Perfect symmetry between the two ears in otoplasty does not always occur ...

It may affect the back of your outer ear or even toward the inner ear, such as in the cup of the ear and the ear canals. ...
  • It consists of the pinna or auricle (the visible projecting portion of the ear), the external acoustic meatus (the outside opening of the ear canal), and the external ear canal that leads to the ear drum . (
  • Swimmer's ear is an infection of the ear canal, the tubular opening that carries sounds from the outside of the body to the eardrum. (
  • People who get it often have been diving or swimming a lot, which can bring germs directly into the ear canal. (
  • Sometimes, in a person with a middle ear infection ( otitis media ), pus collected in the middle ear can drain into the ear canal through a hole in the eardrum, causing otitis externa. (
  • Sometimes there is itching in the ear canal before the pain begins. (
  • It can be hard to hear in the affected ear if pus or swelling of the canal begins to block passage of sound into the ear. (
  • If swelling narrows the opening into the ear, the doctor may clean the ear and insert a sponge called a wick into the ear canal. (
  • Otitis externa affects the ear canal and outer ear and is sometimes called "swimmer's ear," although it has other causes. (
  • The main symptom is pain in the ear with inflammation in the ear canal. (
  • The entire contents of one of these containers should be squeezed into the ear canal with each dose. (
  • Adding cold liquids into the ear canal can cause dizziness because the balance system is located inside the ears. (
  • The solution should be squeezed into the ear canal, and the patient should not sit up for at least one minute, to keep the medicine from leaking out. (
  • A simplified comedogenic assay is described in which test materials are applied for 2 weeks to the ears of rabbits just external to the ear canal. (
  • The pinnae are usually small, cup-shaped, with helix folded forward, and hearing loss is associated with malformed ossicles and displacement of the external auditory canal. (
  • After cleaning the ear canal with 70% ethanol, we collected discharge with a swab. (
  • Topical treatment using antimicrobial drugs in combi- in patients who had acute otitis media, peritonitis, and eye nation with keeping the ear canal clean and dry is the main- or urinary tract infections ( 4-6 ). (
  • The auricle and external acoustic meatus (or external auditory canal) compose the external ear. (
  • The prompt removal of foreign bodies from the ear is indicated whenever a well-visualized foreign body is identified in the external auditory canal and an uncomplicated first attempt is anticipated. (
  • Local anesthesia is invasive and is not generally used for uncomplicated ear foreign body removal because of the complex innervations of the external ear canal. (
  • It turns out these pieces-also called pinnae or auricula-act like funnels: They collect, amplify and direct sound waves to the ear canal. (
  • One side should have a hole that is small enough so it can rest in your outer ear, near the ear canal. (
  • To avoid injury, do not insert anything inside your ear canal. (
  • The ear canals were surgically corrected via lateral ear canal resection. (
  • This case is an example of the use of bone-conducted BAER testing to aid in the diagnosis of conductive deafness, and in determining prognosis for normal hearing after surgical treatment of external ear canal atresia. (
  • Gently wipe the inner ear flap with a cotton ball or cotton swap that has been saturated with Dr. Harvey's Herbal Ear Wash. Do not insert swab or cotton into ear canal. (
  • Inflammation or infection of the ear canal ( otitis externa ). (
  • They may injure the outside of the ear or ear canal. (
  • Cleaning the ear canal too often, too forcefully, or with a cotton swab, bobby pin, or sharp fingernail. (
  • They can cause injury to the ear canal or the eardrum (tympanic membrane). (
  • A skin reaction (dermatitis) on the outside of the ear or in the ear canal from perfume, hair dye, or wearing hearing aids. (
  • The outer ear collects sound, which travels down the ear canal to the ear drum. (
  • C. auris was first described in 2009, after being isolated from external ear canal discharge of a patient in Japan. (
  • An earplug that doesn't quite fill your ear canal or an earmuff with a small crack in the padding will let lots of noise into the ears through any gaps, even tiny ones. (
  • Put a few drops in the ear canal. (
  • Patients should be warned that cotton-tipped swabs can be very dangerous to ear health and should never be used in the ear canal. (
  • If cerumen (more commonly known as ear wax) accumulates in your ear canal, it can diminish your ability to hear. (
  • The ear canal is a warm, moist part of the body that is ideal for the growth of bacteria and fungi and an accessible entry site for moisture. (
  • Adults with eczema in their ear canal or who routinely insert cotton swabs into their ear canal are more prone to otitis externa. (
  • Using cotton swabs, earwax is frequently pushed deeper into the ear canal. (
  • This earwax can trap water or moisture deep within the ear canal, allowing infection to flourish. (
  • Cotton swabs can cause pinna infections and irritation to the ear canal or eardrum, which can impair hearing and induce various types of infections and ear pain. (
  • To maintain constant pressure in the middle ear, the Eustachian tubes, which run from the ear canal to the back of the throat, act as drain valves. (
  • It includes the shell-like EAR AURICLE which collects sound, and the EXTERNAL EAR CANAL , the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE , and the EXTERNAL EAR CARTILAGES . (
  • BPPV affects the sensing tube in the inner ear called the posterior semicircular canal. (
  • Where does ear canal lead to? (
  • The ear canal, also called the external acoustic meatus, is a passage comprised of bone and skin leading to the eardrum. (
  • The ear is comprised of the ear canal (also known as the outer ear), the middle ear, and the inner ear. (
  • One reason is a prior history of trauma or infections, the other is compressed geometry of the ear canal. (
  • In this case, the compressed geometry of the ear canal is likely causing a fold of the tympanic membrane. (
  • People who don't swim can also develop it by scratching their ear canals when they try to clean their ears. (
  • Keep all objects out of your ear canals - including cotton swabs - unless your doctor has told you it's OK to use them. (
  • It may affect the back of your outer ear or even toward the inner ear, such as in the cup of the ear and the ear canals. (
  • external auditory canals with dove or pigeon feces. (
  • Hypothesis: Underwater hearing acuity and sound localization are improved by the presence of an air interface around the pinnae and inside the external ear canals. (
  • After these enter your ear canals (the holes on each side of your head), the inner ear (the part inside your head) jumps into action. (
  • A 3 yr old male castrated Labrador retriever presented for evaluation and treatment of bilateral atresia of the external ear canals. (
  • Computed tomography of the head revealed intact vertical and horizontal ear canals filled with debris and a debris-filled right tympanic bulla. (
  • No difference was seen between the miners and comparison subjects in the prevalence of middle ear disorders, however abraded external auditory canals, impacted cerumen, and cotton in external canals were found among the miners due to improper ear cleaning methods. (
  • It results from a buildup of calcium carbonate and protein in the ear canals. (
  • Labyrinthitis is a condition which causes irritation of tiny hair cells which project into fluid-filled canals (labyrinths) within the balance center in the inner ear. (
  • The inner ear (also called the labyrinth) contains 2 main structures - the cochlea, which is involved in hearing, and the vestibular system (consisting of the 3 semicircular canals, saccule and utricle), which is responsible for maintaining balance. (
  • Our ears are involved in more than just hearing, and the presence of the semicircular canals in our ears can lead to balance problems in people suffering from hearing loss. (
  • Visible deformity of the ears cartilage, resulting from recurrent chondritis. (
  • Depending on the case, ear surgery can be performed on patients as young as five to provide early correction of an ear deformity. (
  • Swimmer's ear - or otitis externa - usually develops in ears that are exposed to moisture. (
  • External otitis is not contagious, so you don't have to limit your contact with friends as long as you're feeling well enough to socialize. (
  • This condition is distinct from otitis media , or middle ear infection. (
  • Some During studies of ear disharge caused by otitis media, patients in the geographic area also used cockroach paste, we detected the gram-negative bacillus Alcaligenes faeca- palm oil, sweet olive oil, sewing machine oil, or breast lis in addition to the commonly isolated bacterial species milk to prevent ear discharge. (
  • Infection of the middle ear ( acute otitis media ). (
  • Chronic eczematous external otitis. (
  • The most frequent adult ear infection is an outer ear infection (otitis externa). (
  • A middle ear infection, often known as otitis media, is most common in children, although it can also affect adults. (
  • patients from 6 months to 7 years old, suffer from onset ear discharge not caused by otitis external, the tympanic membrane was ruptured with purulent. (
  • A pinna is the scientific name for the extension of the ear that sticks out from the side of the head. (
  • Holding or taping the two cut sides of the larger piece together creates a hole, making a nice cupped pinna to put on your ear. (
  • External or outer ear, consisting of: Pinna or auricle. (
  • But don't use these drops if you have ear tubes or a hole in your eardrum. (
  • This can burst the eardrum or damage the tiny bones in the inner ear that send sound to the brain. (
  • For example, the eardrum can burst or the middle ear can fill with blood or pus. (
  • When viruses or bacteria penetrate the middle ear (the space behind the eardrum), they cause an ear infection. (
  • Definition Conductive hearing loss happens when there is a problem conducting sound wave through the outer ear, tympani membrane (eardrum) or middle ear (ossciles). (
  • Your ear will be swollen, red, and tender near the cartilage. (
  • The ear is mostly made of cartilage, which is tricky to work with, and at the same time, has a highly visible and complicated shape. (
  • The "mouse-ear" project began in 1989, when Charles Vacanti (brother of Joseph) managed to grow a small piece of human cartilage on a biodegradable scaffold. (
  • The next step was to seed this ear-shaped scaffold with cartilage cells from the knee of a cow (remember how I said that the famous mouse-ear had absolutely no human cartilage cells in it). (
  • Over some three months, the mouse grew extra blood vessels that nourished the cow cartilage cells, that then grew and infiltrated into the biodegradable scaffolding (which had the shape of a human ear). (
  • In most people this is the curled over part of the ear where upper cartilage piercings are - or just above the lobe. (
  • The folds of skin and cartilage that come to mind when talking about your ear are called the pinnae. (
  • First, create a pair of cone-shaped pinnae, also called ear trumpets. (
  • Because you will put these pinnae around your ears, you might want to cover the cut edges with tape. (
  • External ears typically are malformed and have patterns of malformation that are so distinctive that preemptive diagnoses of CHARGE can be made on the basis of unusually shaped, asymmetrical pinnae. (
  • The anomalous pinnae rarely cause hearing loss, but they are often so soft and floppy that they may not support a behind-the-ear hearing aid. (
  • Sometimes, there's a greenish-yellow discharge of pus from the ear opening. (
  • We found, however, that bilis , in addition to gram-positive bacteria such as entero- to prevent ear discharge, patients occasionally filled their cocci and staphylococci ( 3 ). (
  • Nonsurgical options for the treatment of microtia include simple coverage of the microtic ear with the patient's hair. (
  • Objectives: To determine the complication rate and the patient satisfaction of titanium osseointegrated ear implants for congenital microtia and anotia. (
  • To discuss external ear prostheses as a treatment option for children with microtia. (
  • Conclusions: Titanium osseointegrated ear prosthesis is a safe and useful procedure for children with microtia. (
  • The primary functionality of the middle ear is that of bony conduction of sound via transference of sound waves in the air collected by the auricle to the fluid of the inner ear. (
  • It's performed on the visible portion of the outer ear, called the auricle. (
  • The SE-C3T (C3), SE-QL2T (QL2) and the SE-QL7BT (QL7) in-ear headphones boast powerful drivers and feature aluminum housing to reduce vibration and heighten audio clarity. (

  • Thought you might appreciate this item(s) I saw in Ear and Hearing. (
  • Diet may affect susceptibility of the inner ear to noise and age-related effects that lead to tinnitus and hearing loss. (
  • It can be an option for people who have severe hearing loss from inner-ear damage who are not able to hear well with hearing aids. (
  • Unlike hearing aids, which amplify sound, a cochlear implant bypasses damaged portions of the ear to deliver sound signals to the hearing (auditory) nerve. (
  • There's a lot of different changes that happen in the inner ear that result in this hearing loss, but the end result is loss of inner ear hair cells for almost all these different conditions. (
  • Hearing protectors only work if they fit your ears and you wear them properly. (
  • The NIOSH QuickFitWeb helps you determine if your hearing protection is giving you at least 15 decibels of attenuation by comparing two "threshold" tests-one without hearing protection and one with the devices on or in your ears. (

  • Initially, a meatoscopy was performed with the purpose of observing external/middle ear alterations that could hinder the hearing test. (
  • Patients with deformed or damaged ears may be experiencing issues with their hearing and emotional distress due to the appearance of their ears. (
  • What part of the ear is used for hearing? (
  • The cochlea is the hearing part of the inner ear. (
  • They send the sound waves to the inner ear and into the fluid-filled hearing organ (cochlea). (
  • In fact, the hearing and balance systems are connected inside the inner ear. (
  • A prosthetic ear is another alternative and is used more frequently following total auriculectomy for cutaneous malignancies. (
  • Data collected included demographic information, congenital syndrome, number and size of screws placed, occurrence of skin reactions, presence of other complications, and length of time patients wore the prosthetic ear. (

(
  • Patients with congenital deafness, or deafness due to neurological causes: meningitis, obstetric complications, ear poisoning. (
  • For most outer ear infections, they prescribe ear drops containing antibiotics possibly mixed with medicine to help ease swelling. (
  • Ear drops typically are used several times a day for 7-10 days. (
  • It will carry ear drops into the ear more effectively. (
  • At home, follow your doctor's directions for using ear drops and take all doses of antibiotic medicine as prescribed. (

  • 2yrs: 5 drops in affected ear twice daily for 7-14 days. (
  • The majority of otolaryngologists and general practitioners exclusively administer antibiotic ear drops. (
  • Sometimes the ear entrance is too inflamed or blocked to allow the drops to enter, so we have to insert a little wick to get the drips where they need to go. (
  • The tympanic cavity (middle ear) extends from the tympanic membrane to the oval window and contains the bony conduction elements of the malleus, incus, and stapes. (
  • Middle ear (tympanic cavity), consisting of: Ossicles. (

  • Although ear infections are more common in children, adults account for roughly 20% of all cases. (
  • Anyone of any age, with or without a history of ear infections, can be affected. (
  • External ear infections are often known as swimmers' ears since they are usually caused by moisture entering the body from outside. (

  • A cochlear implant uses a sound processor that you wear behind your ear. (
  • Some types of cochlear implants have one external unit that has a speech processor, microphone and transmitter combined (lower left), while others have these as separate external parts (upper left and on right). (
  • Cochlear implants use a sound processor that fits behind the ear. (
  • So we shouldn't use cotton swabs to clean our ears or remove earwax. (
  • Growing prevalence of bone related diseases such as osteoporosis is driving growth of the external fixators market. (
  • All the patients having multiple diseases of external ear were included as cases. (
  • Even a human ear works this way. (
  • It showed a totally hairless mouse, with what appeared to be a human ear growing out of its back. (
  • The layperson might ask, why would you want to have a "spare" human ear? (
  • The Turning Point propaganda implied that some DNA from a human (the section that has the blueprint for making the human ear) had been inserted into the DNA of the mouse. (
  • Then, this human DNA had somehow taken over the mouse DNA, and commanded it to grow a human ear. (
  • His surgeon colleagues had told him that the human ear was the body's most difficult cartilaginous tissue to reconstruct and rebuild - and that they would love to have a "spare" ear to transplant. (
  • That cartilaginous structure that looked like a human ear was never transplanted onto a human, because it was full of cow cells and would have been rejected by a person's immune system. (
  • One must also bear in mind that the external ear is subject to repeated minor trauma that the alloplastic implant must be expected to withstand over a lifetime. (
  • In adults, an otoplasty can achieve the ideal proportion and repair ears damaged by trauma or a medical condition. (
  • The external ear's only function is to concentrate air vibrations onto the ear drum and make the drum vibrate. (
  • The soundwaves cause the ear drum and middle ear bones to vibrate. (
  • The most common side effects, each occurring in 2-3% of patients, were ear pain, ear itching, headache, and secondary fungal infection. (

  • ABSTRACT This study aimed to explore correlations between mandible and ear deformities and quantitative volumetric relations between condylar structures and external ear in hemifacial microsomia . (
  • Along with the external ear (except the classification of the mandibular or ear deformities (E4)), their volumes were measured and analyzed. (
  • There was a positive correlation between the mandible and ear deformities (râ =â 0.301, P â (
  • classification of the mandibular or ear deformities (M2b) were significantly smaller than the classification of the mandibular or ear deformities (M2a). (
  • Results suggested deformities of mandibular condylar structures and ear did not correlate, although deformities of mandible and ear did. (
  • Tinnitus was based on report of ringing or buzzing in one or both ears that lasts more than five minutes at a time and is currently experienced at least some of the time. (
  • Ear protection goes a long way towards preventing your tinnitus from getting worse. (
  • Ear disease was found in 27.5% of the ears examined. (
  • Earwax is the body's natural defence mechanism for intercepting and inhibiting the growth of microorganisms that have infiltrated the ear. (
  • For this discussion the following conditions have been excluded: (iatrogenic conditions, occupational conditions (chronic conditions due to long-term exposure to external agent), and drug- and anesthesia- induced conditions. (
  • By contrast, membrane, which often leads to chronic infection of the most isolates were resistant to the fluoroquinolones cipro- middle ear. (
  • These conditions are caused by bacteria that enters the skin when something breaks it, such as an injury, bug bite, ear piercing, or another medical condition. (
  • Use an exposed radiograph film to trace the outline of the contralateral normal ear and to serve as a template for reproducing auricular details, especially the contour of the triangular fossa and scaphoid fossa. (
