1 Review Early management of hearing and balance disorders: a review of literature and a proposal to overcome possible uncertainties. 2010

Pirodda, A / Ferri, G G / Borghi, C. ·S. Orsola-Malpighi University Hospital, Bologna, Italy. ·Minerva Med · Pubmed #21196903.

ABSTRACT: The lack of a correct diagnostic and therapeutic planning of vestibular diseases is still often observed, and some difficulties are still to deal with in clinical practice, even when treating acute hearing problems, although the needed competence is more easily identified as otologic. A review of the international literature confirms the existence of such a problem, and permits to underline the scarcity of connections between otology and neurotology, on one hand, and principles of basic sciences and general and internal medicine, on the other hand: this can explain some therapeutic contradictions in treating inner ear disorders, their frequent labelling as idiopathic and the persisting uncertainties concerning a correct diagnostic and therapeutic management. In order to overcome the difficulties deriving to insufficient interdisciplinary cooperation, the institution of hospital audiovestibular services with a strictly linked net of cooperation with internal medicine units could represent a progress. This could help prevent clinically and economically inadequate management, contributing to minimize the possibility of expensive and/or health-threatening mistakes; moreover, it could represent an example to easily improve the practical aspects of both pre graduate and postgraduate curricula, and to form more open-minded clinicians, starting both from an ear. Nose and throat (ENT)/audiological and from an Internal Medicine extraction.

2 Review Langerhans cell histiocytosis: bilateral temporal bone involvement in an adult with diabetes insipidus. 2010

Modugno, G C / Brandolini, C / Magnani, G / Ferri, G G / Sabattini, E / Pirodda, A. ·Department of Specialistic Surgical and Anaesthesiological Sciences, ENT Section, Policlinico S.Orsola-Malpighi, University of Bologna, Italy. ·B-ENT · Pubmed #20420085.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: To present a clinical case of an adult affected by Langerhans cell histiocytosis with bilateral, non-simultaneous, involvement of the temporal bone, associated with diabetes insipidus and to review the literature. METHODOLOGY: A rare case of bilateral temporal bone involvement of Langerhans cell histiocytosis in a 42-year-old woman affected by diabetes insipidus is reported. We present patient's clinical history supported by radiologic, histopathologic and audiologic findings. RESULTS: The patient was submitted to a series of otologic surgical procedures due to the progression of the disease. Ossicular chain was always preserved, so that conservative surgery (canal wall-up technique) was performed, permitting the achievement of good hearing results, bilaterally. CONCLUSIONS: Temporal bone involvement of Langerhans cell histiocytosis may lead to a progressive chronic disease. However, the ossicular chain can remain uninvolved, making a conservative surgical treatment possible. Careful follow-up is essential for detecting new lesions and serial CT scans are mandatory.

3 Review Exploring the reasons why melatonin can improve tinnitus. 2010

Pirodda, Antonio / Raimondi, Maria Chiara / Ferri, Gian Gaetano. ·Department of Specialist Surgical and Anaesthesiological Sciences, S. Orsola-Malpighi University Hospital, Via Massarenti 9, 40138 Bologna, Italy. ·Med Hypotheses · Pubmed #20207491.

ABSTRACT: Melatonin has been proposed as a treatment for tinnitus, especially on the basis of its favourable effects on sleep and its vasoactive and antioxidant properties. However, to our knowledge no attempts of interpretation have been advanced through a detailed analysis of the various specific properties of melatonin possibly cooperating in a coincidental way to relieve tinnitus: among these, its modulatory effect on central nervous system resulting in a protective mechanism against an exaggerated sympathetic drive; its capacity to induce a more steady hemodynamic condition, through a multifactorial and multi-organ activity, resulting in a more regular labyrinthine perfusion; a possible action on the skeletal muscle tending to a reduction of the muscular tone, which could relieve tinnitus of muscular origin deriving from tensor tympani tonic contractions; its possible reported antidepressive effect, which could indirectly act on tinnitus; a direct regulation of inner ear immunity as proposed in literature when melatonin was reported to be present in the inner ear. All these observations seem to indicate melatonin as a tool deserving a greater attention than other antioxidants in the attempt of relieving tinnitus, justifying its application from a more precise rationale based on a series of physio-pathological aspects.

ABSTRACT: Superior canal dehiscence is a pathologic condition of the otic capsule acting as aberrant window of the inner ear. It results in reduction of inner ear impedance and in abnormal exposure of the labyrinthine neuroepithelium to the action of the surrounding structures. The sum of these phenomena leads to the onset of typical cochleo-vestibular symptoms and signs. Among them, pulsatile tinnitus has been attributed to a direct transmission of intracranial vascular activities to labyrinthine fluids. We present the first video-otoscopic documentation of spontaneous pulse-synchronous movements of the tympanic membrane in two patients with superior canal dehiscence. Pulsating eardrum may represent an additional sign of third-mobile window lesion.
