Aural Atresia with Cholesteotoma and Its Management Strategies

AbstractThe term congenital aural atresia is used to describe failure of external auditory canal to open. Thus it results in conductive hearing loss. There are ways to improve the transmission of sound to the healthy inner ear, we have performed surgery to open the ear canal and restore the natural sound-conducting mechanism to the inner ear. Thus avoiding multiple surgeries. The study was conducted among patients aged between 12 and 24  years, our study included 8 patients with aural atresia with cholesteotoma. After a detailed examination of patients were subjected to surgery. In our study with the sample size of eight patients Where, all our patients underwent canal wall down mastoidectomy with simultaneous single stage reconst ruction of ossicular chain. All our patients were discharge free and Had subjective improvement in hearing with the post operative period was well accomplished to

AbstractWe here report a neonate with prenatal echocardiographic diagnosis of tricuspid atresia, with normally related great vessels, and large ventricular septal defect. This diagnosis could be confirmed with echocardiography at birth. An additional double mitral orifice was also seen. This is a very rare association.

ConclusionThis study illustrates neonates in whom a whirlpool sign (unrelated to midgut volvulus) was correctly recognized on sonography before surgery. Sonography proved more useful than an upper gastrointestinal series or contrast enema in depicting the exact cause of the obstruction. Pediatric radiologists must make the effort to search throughout the entire abdomen and pelvis for a small whirlpool sign on sonography, even in the absence of midgut malrotation, in neonates with congenital intestinal obstruction. Its recognition preoperatively will facilitate a rapid diagnosis and will obviate the necessity for contrast e...
