1 Review Combined Surgical Approach to Giant Cholesteatoma: A Case Report and Literature Review. 2016

Cazzador, Diego / Favaretto, Niccolò / Zanoletti, Elisabetta / Martini, Alessandro. ·Department of Neurosciences, Otolaryngology Section, University of Padova, Italy gkmcaz@hotmail.it. · Department of Neurosciences, Otolaryngology Section, University of Padova, Italy. ·Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol · Pubmed #27117903.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: Cholesteatomas can grow to a remarkable size before clinically making their presence felt. Managing giant cholesteatomas and their complications can become a challenge for the otological surgeon. METHODS: We describe a case of a giant congenital cholesteatoma of the mastoid in an adult. The lesion extended to the sigmoid sinus, jugular bulb, carotid canal, occipital condyle, and the lateral portion of the first cervical vertebra. Surgical excision was performed using a combined microscopic and endoscopic surgical approach. RESULTS: Our combined surgical technique enabled a more accurate removal of the cholesteatoma than a microscopic approach alone, with no surgical complications or damage to the structures affected by the disease. CONCLUSIONS: Using endoscopic instruments to manage giant cholesteatomas can help to avoid complications and improve surgical radicality.

ABSTRACT: PURPOSE: To assess preoperative features that could predict the audiological outcome after cochlear implantation in the elderly, in terms of pure tone audiometry, speech audiometry, and speech perception performance. METHODS: All available records of patients with cochlear implants aged 65 or more at the time of their implantation at our Institution were reviewed (50 patients, mean age 70.76 ± 4.03 years), recording preoperative clinical features. Pure tone audiometry, speech audiometry, and speech perception performance 1 year after cochlear implant activation and fitting were used as outcome measures. RESULTS: No statistically significant association emerged between clinical features and pure tone audiometry. On univariate analysis, progressive sensorineural hearing loss of unknown origin was associated with a better outcome in terms of speech audiometry and speech perception performance (p = 0.035 and p = 0.033, respectively). On multivariate analysis, progressive sensorineural hearing loss retained its independent prognostic significance in terms of speech perception performance (p = 0.042). The discriminatory power of a two-variable panel (age and etiology of hearing loss) featured an AUC (ROC) of 0.738 (an acceptable discriminatory power according to the Hosmer-Lemeshow scale). CONCLUSIONS: A progressive sensorineural hearing loss of unknown origin was associated with a better outcome in terms of speech perception in the elderly in our case study. Further features that can predict audiological outcome achievable with cochlear implants in the elderly are desirable to perform adequate counselling and rehabilitation programs.
