  • growth
  • In this procedure, the growth is surgically removed from the mastoid bone, and in some cases a portion of the bone itself must be removed in order to adequately treat the condition. (wisegeek.com)
  • occurs
  • Drainage from the ear occurs in more serious cases, often manifest as brown discharge on the pillowcase upon waking. (wikipedia.org)
  • secondary
  • Twenty-five cases were primary, while 23 cases were secondary: postoperative (n = 9), postinflammatory (n = 5), postirradiatory (n = 7), and posttraumatic (n = 2). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Secondary outcome measures included the comparison of the rates of cases showing a high T1W signal between cholesteatomas and noncholesteatomas which showed a high non-EP DW signal. (ovid.com)
  • bones
  • It may become adherent to these bones and in some cases, this contact leads to erosion of the bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2016
  • In 2016, Malone's book The Fearless Cross-Examiner: Win the Witness, Win the Case was published. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • The surgical approach was: translabyrinthic (1 case), translabyrinthic and suprapetrous (2 cases), suprapetrous (1 case), suprapetrous and petrectomy (1 case), petrectomy (2 cases). (ent-review.com)
  • Diagnostic accuracy was evaluated in each case by comparing MR imaging with surgical findings. (ovid.com)
  • Once suspected, there should be immediate surgical exploration to determine if a cholesteatoma has formed as this must be removed if present. (wikipedia.org)
  • primary
  • In primary EECC 48% of cases reported mechanical trauma. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Primary outcome measures included the comparison between the diagnostic accuracy for the detection of cholesteatomas using non-EP DW imaging alone (criterion 1) and non-EP DW imaging along with T1W imaging (criterion 2). (ovid.com)
  • clinical
  • There appears to be an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance in these families with low penetrance, and except for a younger age at onset, the clinical features overlap with the idiopathic cases.Evaluation of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in genes related to vascular change causing compression of blood vessles did not show an association with hemifacial spasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Cholesteatoma is a well demarcated, non-neoplastic, temporal bone cystic lesion with extensive keratinisation. (jcdr.net)
  • discharge
  • This discharge may have a foul odor, and in some cases it may also contain pus. (wisegeek.com)
  • If a patient presents to a doctor with ear discharge and hearing loss, the doctor should consider the patient to have cholesteatoma until the disease is definitely excluded. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • Malone represented the plaintiff in Goldberg v. Boone, a Maryland medical malpractice in which the plaintiff suffered brain injury during a procedure to remove a cholesteatoma from the ear. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnostic
  • Methodology: We studied the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of the 7 operated cases from 1994 to 2004. (ent-review.com)
  • To reveal the usefulness of T1-weighted (T1W) imaging on diagnostic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for cholesteatoma. (ovid.com)
  • Our results suggest that T1W imaging may aid in the exclusion of false-positive cases on diagnostic non-EP DW MR imaging for cholesteatomas. (ovid.com)
  • less
  • Half the cases involve children less than five years of age and it is more common among males. (wikipedia.org)
