  • Vascular Strip Cholesteatoma-A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Iran J Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 31(106):311-314Bhandarkar AM, Goyal S, … Pujary K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Proper placement of the vascular strip with the skin lining the external auditory canal with approximation of the incision margins is essential to prevent iatrogenic cholesteatoma formation. Close follow-up is essential to prevent any recurrence and diffusion weighted MRI plays a vital role in detection of recurrence.
  • Can MDCT Scan of the Temporal Bone Looking at Pneumatization Predict Surgical Vulnerability of the Facial Nerve? [Journal Article]
    Ear Nose Throat J 2019; :145561319879528Inal M, Muluk NB, … Arıkan OK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cochleariform process is an important landmark to localize the tympanic segment of the facial canal. In sclerosed mastoids, scutum-CP and scutum-promontorium distances decreased. There was no relationship between FCD rates and mastoid pneumatization levels. It may be due to the development of FCD that occurs during the intrauterine period. In endoscopic and classic ear surgeries, mastoid pneumatization must be evaluated preoperatively to avoid facial nerve injuries.
  • The Role of the Parotid-Mastoid Fascia in Identification of the Facial Nerve Trunk During Parotidectomy. [Journal Article]
    Ear Nose Throat J 2019; :145561319877998Micucci SB, Cheng SS, … Rasgon B
  • CONCLUSIONS: The parotid fascia, particularly the parotid-mastoid segment overlying the facial nerve trunk, can be utilized as an additional landmark of depth to help identify the facial nerve trunk during a parotidectomy in conjunction with other commonly used standard anatomic landmarks. The parotid fascia sling spans from the mastoid and tragal pointer to the parotid gland and can be easily palpated intraoperatively. Once the fascia is removed, the facial nerve trunk is identified.
  • Extended Epitympanotomy for Facial Nerve Decompression as a Minimally Invasive Approach. [Journal Article]
    J Audiol Otol 2019; 23(4):204-209Chao JR, Chang J, Lee JH
  • For a minimally invasive approach to access the facial nerve, we designed an extended epitympanotomy via a transmastoid approach that has proven useful in cases of traumatic facial nerve palsy and pre-cholesteatoma. To evaluate the surgical exposure through an extended epitympanotomy, six patients with traumatic facial nerve palsy were enrolled in this study. The same surgical technique was used …
