Documentation of this case of contralateral hearing loss after vestibular schwannoma excision is intended to remind neurotologic
surgeons of the possibility for this potentially devastating complication.
A global group of specialists in audiology, otolaryngology, otology, and other areas addresses topics in basic science, including embryology, anatomy, physiology, diagnostic audiology, imaging, and the molecular genetics of hearing losses, followed by approaches to patients with disorders of the external ear, middle ear, inner ear, and facial nerve; discussion of neurotologic
and lateral skull base surgery for specific conditions; and descriptions of electronic listening assistive devices.
FACS, director of the division of otologic and neurotologic
surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Henry Ford.
com), manufacturers and marketers of noninvasive medical diagnostic equipment used worldwide for neurophysiologic/ neurotologic
testing, said today that it is presenting at the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Feedback Sessions in Washington D.
From eleven neurotologic
procedures completed in 1994, it appeared that the cement had potential to become a commonly used material in the management of cranial base and temporal bone defects following surgery (27).
For this retrospective study, we examined the available office charts of patients diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma who had been seen at our tertiary care neurotologic
Some patients were referred for neurotologic
examination after having undergone neuroradiologic imaging.
He completed training in Neurotology and Skull Base Surgery at The Ohio State University, an accredited Neurotologic
program, in 1998.
We conducted a retrospective study to reexamine the value of single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in the evaluation of patients with neurotologic
complaints, and to assess the intra- and inter-radiologist variability of SPECT readings.
Findings on the patient's comprehensive physical and neurotologic
examinations were unremarkable, with the exception of a high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss and an absence of acoustic reflexes on the left side.
In such cases, otologic surgeons should be prepared to perform a combined otologic and neurotologic
(intracranial) procedure to repair dural and brain floor defects when necessary.
Findings on otolaryngologic and neurotologic
examinations were normal bilaterally.
