Classical imaging techniques are inaccurate to detect residual cholesteatoma. The aim of our study is to evaluate the value of diffusion-weighted MR imaging and delayed contrast enhanced T...
Cholesteatoma is a retraction pocket lined with squamous epithelium lined with keratin debris occurring within pneumatized spaces of the temporal bone. Cholesteatomas have a propensity for...
Chronic otitis media is a prevalent medical condition, leading to important impact in the lives of the individuals with this condition, and a great amount of patients may need surgical int...
Cholesteatoma is a destructive and expanding pathologic condition consisting of keratin pearl arising from a squamous epithelium in the middle ear and/or mastoid process. Evolution consist...
Aim of this study is to compare results of double and single flap techniques for tympanoplasty in chronic suppurative otitis media patients. Inclusion criteria include total or subtotal ty...
To show the efficiency of using transmastoid atticotomy (TMA) endoscopy on the outcome of ossiculoplasty in patients with cholesteatoma. TMA is often performed as part of the surgical management of pa...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the ossicular chain erosions (OCE) in chronic otitis media patients with cholesteatoma (COM-C) or without cholesteatoma (COM).
The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) to identify residual-recurrent cholesteatoma using the secon...
Purpose and background This study retrospectively compares diagnostic performance of 1.5 T versus 3 T non-echo planar diffusion weighted imaging with or without additional T1 and T2 sequences in t...
We evaluated the pattern of ossicular chain (OC) lesion in chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) without cholesteatoma and its impact on outcomes in primary and revision surgeries.
A non-neoplastic mass of keratin-producing squamous EPITHELIUM, frequently occurring in the MENINGES; bones of the skull, and most commonly in the MIDDLE EAR and MASTOID region. Cholesteatoma can be congenital or acquired. Cholesteatoma is not a tumor nor is it associated with high CHOLESTEROL.
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.
