Based on this literature, reasonable criteria may be laid out along the following lines: Patients likely to be appropriate candidates for eustachian tuboplasty are those with a medical history of unilateral or bilateral persistent otitis media with effusion or significant nonadherent tympanic membrane atelectasis.
In this study, clinical investigations focused on the surgical effect of an intact canal wall mastoidectomy and mastoidectomy combined with tympanostomy tube (TT) or balloon dilation eustachian tuboplasty (BDET).
Tubal pregnancy had been only seen after proximal tubolysis and salpingoneostomy procedures, while all pregnancies developed after the other laparoscopic tuboplasty procedures were intrauterine ones.
(9) Because the scarring and blockage from tuberculosis is usually more serious than that which is secondary to an STI, women with pelvic TB are not usually candidates for tuboplasty. Cases of active endometrial tuberculosis are sent to tuberculosis treatment centers in the municipal hospital.
(9) A case reported by Evans and colleagues dramatically illustrates the potential effects of these treatments: One woman's reproductive history included three cesarean sections, a tubal ligation, a tuboplasty (after which she remained infertile), in vitro fertilization with subsequent implantation of four embryos, selective termination of two of the fetuses, revelation via ultrasound that one of the remaining twins had "severe oligohydramnios and no evidence of a bladder or kidneys," spontaneous miscarriage of the abnormal twin, and intrauterine death of the remaining fetus (291).
Suspected ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy occurring after tuboplasty or phor ectopic gestation
Balloon Dilation Eustachian Tuboplasty: A Feasibility Study.
The risk of ectopic pregnancy is increased in cases of pelvic inflammatory disease, IUCD usage, previous induced or spontaneous abortion, previous caesarean, failed tubal sterilisation procedures, tuberculosis and tuboplasty. The importance of ectopic pregnancy in our environment is peculiar because rather than join the global trend of early diagnosis and conservative approach in management, we are challenged by late presentations with rupture in more than 80% of the cases.
They cover optical diagnostics in head and neck cancer, stem cells in head and neck cancer, positron emission tomography-computed tomography in head and neck cancer, middle ear implants, tissue hypoxia in chronic otitis media, balloon dilation Eustachian tuboplasty, superior canal dehiscence syndrome, possibilities and challenges of regenerating hair cells in the inner ear, vestibular implants, and the medical treatment of vascular anomalies.
Surgical procedures that have been performed in patients with CSOM include adenoidectomy, tympanoplasty, mastoidectomy, sinus surgery, tympanostomy tube removal, and eustachian tuboplasty. Infected adenoids can contain a reservoir of pus and contribute to CSOM.
