The patient underwent surgery through an endaural
ear speculum 5 mm,plester suction tube with grip plate, cut off hole and stylet, leur, 5 fr, 20 cm
The prostheses were placed through endaural
or preauricular and submandibular incisions, as previously described (8), after thorough debridement of the region.
At surgery, an endaural
or preauricular approach was used to perform the condylectomy, joint debridement, coronoidectomy to release the temporalis muscle, and, if indicated, accurate bony recontouring of the fossa as dictated by the recontouring done on the CAD/CAM model.
The patient subsequently underwent complete excision of the sinus tract under general anesthesia, with a combination of endaural
and postauricular dissection.
At this time, the development of the fenestration operation and the endaural
approach to the middle ear and mastoid became major factors in the revival, or resuscitation as the pessimists saw it, of otolaryngology.
Naim et al based their choice of procedure on the severity of the case; they recommended a transcanal or endaural
approach for a minimally invasive condition and a postauricular approach and canal-wall-down technique in cases of mastoid involvement.
A modified short endaural
incision is used by the authors to gain access to the TMJ area.
For 30 to 40 years, we have successfully used an endaural
approach to labyrinthectomy that combines the desirable elements of both physical and chemical labyrinthectomy, which renders a mastoidectomy unnecessary.
The TMJ is approached via an endaural
or preauricular incision, and the mandibular ramus is approached via a submandibular incision.
encephalocele and cerebrospinal fluid otorrhea.
12) Numerous surgical procedures via endaural
and postauricular approaches have been reported.
