1 Article Implantation of bone-anchored hearing device using a three-dimensional template in a child. 2020

Puttasiddaiah, P M / Goodrum, H / Browning, S T. ·Department of Otolaryngology, Morriston Hospital, Swansea, Wales, UK. · Reconstructive Maxillofacial Laboratory, Morriston Hospital, Swansea, Wales, UK. ·J Laryngol Otol · Pubmed #32079553.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Implantation of bone-anchored hearing devices is performed to improve hearing in patients with chronic suppurative otitis media who cannot wear a conventional hearing aid. The surgical procedure can be safely performed in children aged over five years. CASE REPORT: A 15-year-old patient with bilateral chronic suppurative otitis media and conductive hearing loss underwent the procedure to implant a bone-anchored hearing device but was found to have skull thickness of less than 2.5 mm and the procedure was abandoned. A computed tomography scan of the skull was undertaken and a three-dimensional template was reconstructed to identify appropriate thickness of the skull to implant the abutment during a second procedure. CONCLUSION: Bone-anchored hearing devices can be implanted by prior imaging and using a template to identify the area of appropriate skull thickness to implant the abutment safely.

2 Article Removal of external ear canal exostoses by piezo surgery: a novel technique. 2018

Puttasiddaiah, P M / Browning, S T. ·Department of Otolaryngology,Morriston Hospital,Swansea,Wales,UK. ·J Laryngol Otol · Pubmed #30099978.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: External auditory canal exostoses are known to occur in patients who engage in cold-water sports. Although the majority of patients with exostosis remain asymptomatic, larger lesions can cause wax impaction, conductive hearing loss and predispose to recurrent otitis externa. OBJECTIVE: A novel technique is described of using a piezo saw to excise exostoses that are symptomatic. The piezo saw is used to perform various procedures, but its use in removing exostoses has not been described in the literature. CONCLUSION: Excision of exostoses of the ear canal using a piezo saw is a safe technique and patients have a speedy recovery. This paper describes a new technique for removing exostoses.
