Management of Acquired Cholesteatoma Associated With Patulous Eustachian Tube and Habitual Sniffing.

Management of Acquired Cholesteatoma Associated With Patulous Eustachian Tube and Habitual Sniffing. Clin Exp Otorhinolaryngol. 2019 May 09;: Authors: Choi SW, Lee DJ, Lee SH, Oh SJ, Kong SK Abstract Objectives: To investigate the effect of surgical treatment with eustachian tube (ET) catheter insertion in patients with acquired cholesteatoma associated with patulous eustachian tube (PET) and habitual sniffing. Methods: Nine ears of nine patients (two men and seven women; age, 20 to 65 years; average, 37.9±12.0 years) of acquired cholesteatoma associated with PET and habitual sniffing who underwent cholesteatoma surgery with simultaneous additional ET catheter insertion were examined in this study. Successful treatment was defined as stoppage of sniffing, a relief of a PET handicap inventory-10 (PHI-10), an improvement of autophony grade and no cholesteatoma recurrence. Results: ET catheter insertion was performed in all ears. Follow-up duration ranged from 16 to 37 months (average, 25.4 months). Cases consisted of nine pars flaccida type (100%). All patients obtained relief from aural symptoms and stopped sniffing. Postoperative PHI-10 scores were significantly lower than preoperative scores (P

Abstract Epithelial abnormalities underpin the development of the middle ear disease, otitis media (OM). Until now, a well-characterized in vitro model of the middle ear (ME) epithelium that replicates the complex cellular composition of the middle ear has not been available. This chapter describes the development of a novel in vitro model of mouse middle ear epithelial cells (mMECs), cultured at the air-liquid interface (ALI). This system enables recapitulation of the characteristics of the native murine ME epithelium. We demonstrate that mMECs undergo differentiation into the varied cell populations seen within ...

A large cross-sectional study of UK prescribing data found that the duration of antibiotic prescriptions for common infections in primary care frequently exceeded national guideline recommendations. The most common reason for antibiotic prescribing was for respiratory infections, and more than 80% of prescriptions for acute cough and bronchitis, acute sore throat, acute otitis media and acute exacerbations of COPD were for longer than recommended. Substantial reductions in antibiotic exposure can be achieved by prescribing antibiotics in line with NICE and Public Health England guidance on managing common infections.

AbstractObjectiveTo prospectively evaluate the effect of tympanostomy tubes combined with adenoidectomy and tube insertion on treatment for otitis media with effusion in young children, and to analyze the related factors of prognosis and recurrence of the disease.MethodsThe clinical and follow-up data of 184 children with otitis media with effusion who were treated in the department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Beijing Children ’s Hospital, Capital Medical University from September 2013 to January 2015, were reviewed systematically. According to different surgical methods, they were randomly divided into...

Abstract SUMMARYThe microbiota of the upper respiratory tract (URT) protects the host from bacterial pathogenic colonization by competing for adherence to epithelial cells and by immune response regulation that includes the activation of antimicrobial and (anti-)inflammatory components. However, environmental or host factors can modify the microbiota to an unstable community that predisposes the host to infection or inflammation. One of the URT diseases most often encountered in children is otitis media (OM). The role of pathogenic bacteria like Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catar...

Authors: Principi N, Esposito S Abstract Introduction: Acute otitis media (AOM) is a common disease, particularly in infants and young children. Almost all children experience at least one episode of AOM in the first 3 years of age, and approximately 50% experience recurrent episodes in the same period of time. Areas covered: Some new potentially effective preventive or therapeutic approaches to AOM have been identified and are not discussed even in the most updated guidelines. The main aim of this narrative review is to detail what has been recently suggested. Expert opinion: Several new measures have been suggest...

CONCLUSION: Mastoid opacification is a common incidental finding in the asymptomatic paediatric population, with prevalence rates between 5 per cent and 20 per cent depending on age. The prevalence peaks in patients aged zero to four years (19-20 per cent) and is inversely correlated with increasing age. PMID: 31269998 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
