2 Article Incomplete and false tract insertions in cochlear implantation: retrospective review of surgical and auditory outcomes. 2018

Vashishth, Ashish / Fulcheri, Andrea / Guida, Maurizio / Caruso, Antonio / Sanna, Mario. ·Department of Otology and Skull Base Surgery, Gruppo Otologico, Piacenza, Rome, Italy. drashishvashishth@gmail.com. · Department of Otology and Skull Base Surgery, Gruppo Otologico, Piacenza, Rome, Italy. ·Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol · Pubmed #29504040.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: To evaluate incidence, demographics, surgical, and radiological correlates of incomplete and false tract electrode array insertions during cochlear implantation (CI). To evaluate outcomes in patients with incomplete electrode insertion (IEI). STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis. SETTING: Otology and skull base center. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Charts of 18 patients (19 ears) with incomplete or false tract insertions of the electrode array were evaluated who underwent CI, with at least 1 year follow-up (from 470 cases). Demographic findings, etiologies, pre-operative radiologic findings, operative records, post-operative plain radiographic assessment for extent of electrode insertion, and switch-on mapping were evaluated. Audiological outcomes were evaluated using maximum and last recorded vowel, word, sentence, and comprehension scores for patients with IEI. RESULTS: Incidence of insertional abnormalities was 4.25% with 17 instances of incomplete and 2 cases of insertion into superior semicircular canal. Mean age and duration of deafness were 55.18 ± 4.62 and 22.12 ± 5.71 years. Etiologies in the IEI group were idiopathic, otosclerosis, meningitis, chronic otitis media (COM), temporal bone fractures, and Neurofibromatosis-2. 29.4% cases had cochlear luminal obstruction. Mean radiological and active electrophysiological length of insertion was 20.49 ± 0.66 and 19.49 ± 0.88 mm, respectively. No significant correlation was observed between audiological outcomes and insertional length except in time to achieve maximum word scores (p = 0.04). Age at implantation had significant correlations with last recorded word and comprehension scores at mean follow-up of 42.9 months, and with time to achieve maximum auditory scores. CONCLUSIONS: IEI during cochlear implantation using straight electrodes can occur with or without cochlear luminal obstruction. Age plays an important role in the auditory rehabilitation in this patient subset.

3 Article Petrous Apex Cholesterol Granulomas: Outcomes, Complications, and Hearing Results From Surgical and Wait-and-Scan Management. 2017

Grinblat, Golda / Vashishth, Ashish / Galetti, Francesco / Caruso, Antonio / Sanna, Mario. ·*Department of Otology and Skull Base Surgery, Gruppo Otologico, Piacenza, Rome †Faculty of Medicine and Surgery - Azienda Ospedaliera Di-Messina, Messina, Italy. ·Otol Neurotol · Pubmed #28984806.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: 1. To analyze the surgical outcomes in the management of petrous apex cholesterol granulomas (PACG) with a brief literature review.2. To evaluate the importance of wait-and-scan management option. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review. SETTING: Quaternary referral center for otology and skull base surgery. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Charts of 55 patients with at least 12 months of follow-up were analyzed for demographic, clinical, audiometric, and radiological features. Patients were divided into surgical group (SG) (n = 31) and wait-and-scan (n = 24) (WS) group. Surgical approach was chosen as per hearing status and PACG extension and relation to nearby neurovascular structures and included either drainage by transmastoid-infralabyrinthine approach (TM-IL)/transcanal-infracochlear approach (TC-IC) or resection by infratemporal fossa type B approach (ITF-B). The combination of ITF-B with trans-otic (TO) approach or TO approach solely was used in unserviceable hearing cases. Postoperative outcomes and complications were evaluated in SG. RESULTS: Postoperative symptom relief was observed in 24 patients (77.4%). Diplopia and paresthesia recovered in each case and improvement in headache, dizziness, tinnitus, and hearing loss was observed in 87.1% cases. Serviceable hearing was preserved in 24 of 26 cases. Postoperative complication rate was 32.2% including incidences of profound hearing loss, facial nerve paresis, carotid artery injury and intraoperative CSF leaks. Revision surgery was required in 3 (9.6%) cases, after TM-IL approach. CONCLUSION: Surgical drainage is preferable to more aggressive resection procedures, with the latter reserved for recurrent lesions or lesions with severe hearing loss/involvement of critical neurovascular structures. ITF-B approach provides adequate cyst and neurovascular control for resection, while avoiding brain retraction. An initial wait-and-scan approach can be used in most patients where symptoms and imaging justify so.

4 Article Cochlear Implantation in Otosclerosis: Surgical and Auditory Outcomes With a Brief on Facial Nerve Stimulation. 2017

Vashishth, Ashish / Fulcheri, Andrea / Rossi, Gianluca / Prasad, Sampath Chandra / Caruso, Antonio / Sanna, Mario. ·Department of Otology and Skull Base Surgery, Gruppo Otologico, Piacenza, Rome, Italy. ·Otol Neurotol · Pubmed #28902803.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: 1) To review the surgical and auditory outcomes in patients of cochlear implantation in otosclerosis. 2) To review complications and postimplantation facial nerve stimulation (FNS). 3) To compare the auditory outcomes between patients displaying cochlear ossification to the nonossified ones. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. SETTING: Quaternary Otology and Skull base surgery center. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Charts of 36 patients (38 ears) with otosclerosis undergoing cochlear implantation were reviewed from the cochlear implant database. Demographic features, operative findings, auditory outcomes, and postimplantation FNS were analyzed. Operative findings included extent of cochlear ossification, approach (posterior tympantomy/subtotal petrosectomy), electrode insertion (partial/complete, scala tympani/vestibuli), and complications. All the patients underwent implantation using straight electrodes. Auditory outcomes were assessed over a 4-year follow-up period using vowel, word, sentence, and comprehension scores. Patients were divided into two groups (with and without cochlear ossification) for comparison of auditory outcomes. RESULTS: The mean age and duration of deafness of patients was 59.72 and 28.9 years respectively. Twenty-three of 38 ears had cochlear ossification, with exclusive round window involvement in 60% of the patients, with the rest having partial or complete basal turn ossification. 36.8% ears underwent subtotal petrosectomy for cochlear ossification. One patient underwent scala vestibuli insertion and two had incomplete electrode insertion. Patients with no ossification had no intra or postoperative complications. One patient had bilateral FNS managed by alterations in programming strategy. Auditory outcomes in patients without any ossification were better than in patients with ossification, though statistically insignificant in most parameters. CONCLUSION: Cochlear implantation in otosclerosis provides good auditory outcomes, despite high incidence of cochlear ossification. Patients of FNS can be managed by alterations in programming strategy, without affecting auditory outcomes.
