A 5 x 5-mm cystic lesion was noted in the anterior epitympanic space abutting on the tympanic segment of the facial nerve.
A simple mastoidectomy with facial nerve decompression was sufficient for surgical removal of the fluid collection at the anterior epitympanic space.
associated with another congenital ossicular chain anomaly (38%), followed by isolated stapes ankylosis (31%), epitympanic
fixation (14%), congenital aplasia or severe dysplasia of the oval or round window (9%), and discontinuity of the ossicular chain (8%).
Intraoperatively, a large cholesteatoma sac was found filling the antrum and extending to the mesotympanic and epitympanic
By 35 weeks, a bony ridge has formed that separates the geniculate ganglion from the epitympanic
For example, failure to exenterate epitympanic
tegmental air cells leaves disease in the attic region and possibly contributes to the eventual failure of the drum graft superiorly.
Atticotomy involves removal of the lateral epitympanic
CT demonstrated a defect in the epitympanic tegmen.
Radiography detected a defect in the epitympanic tegmen.
CT detected a defect in the epitympanic tegmen, which was repaired with the three-layer closure.
She had two bony defects, one in the area of the sinodural angle and one in the epitympanic tegmen.
