• Complications
  • In more severe cases, such as those with associated hearing loss or high fever, audiometry, tympanogram, temporal bone CT and MRI can be used to assess for associated complications, such as mastoid effusion, subperiosteal abscess formation, bony destruction, venous thrombosis or meningitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • bony
  • In cases of advanced cholesteatoma, the bony covering of the facial nerve in the middle ear may be eroded, further exposing the nerve to damage. (earsurgery.org)
  • The occurrence of pneumocephalus depends upon two basic factors which must be present in all cases: (1) a difference between extracranial and intracranial pressure, the former being greater, and (2) a defect in the bony coverings of the brain. (springer.com)
  • occurs
  • This type of cholesteatoma is very rare, and occurs when squamous epithelium residue remains in the middle ear during development of the embryo. (hear.com)
  • Drainage from the ear occurs in more serious cases, often manifest as brown discharge on the pillowcase upon waking. (wikipedia.org)
  • destruction
  • We hereby present a case of giant cholesteatoma in a 45-year-old female with radiological involvement of the left temporal region, periauricular region and infratemporal fossa with lytic destruction of left middle ear ossicles, mastoid and squamous part of temporal bone with intracranial extension.

  • acoustic
  • In 1957, in Paris, André Djourno, a professor of medical physics, and Charles Eyriès, a Parisian otologist, restored basic hearing to a completely deaf patient with bilateral cholesteatoma by electrically stimulating acoustic nerve fibres still present in the inner ear. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2016
  • In 2016, Malone's book The Fearless Cross-Examiner: Win the Witness, Win the Case was published. (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)
  • Dura
  • In those cases of subdural, subarachnoid, or intracerebral pneumocephalus there must also be a defect in the dura. (springer.com)
  • treatment
  • Cholesteatoma is a serious condition and, when diagnosed, requires prompt treatment. (earsurgery.org)
  • To our knowledge, this is the first controlled study of an antiviral agent in the treatment of a sufficient number of Bell's palsy cases based on an etiologic background. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Hearing
  • To evaluate long-term surgical and hearing results using a well-defined surgical technique without staging in adult cholesteatoma. (diva-portal.org)
  • Long-lasting improvement and/or preservation of hearing, with maintenance of PTA-ABG closure in 68% of all cases within 20 dB, were obtained. (diva-portal.org)
