Anatomical and functional outcome following type 1 tympanoplasty in chronic tubotympanic
SOM, Military Hospital Rawalpindi.
It is of two types; tubotympanic
CSOM (chronic suppurative otitis media) and atticoantral CSOM (chronic suppur-ative otitis media).
Observation of hearing loss in patients with chronic suppurative otitis media tubotympanic
The study group comprised 33 otherwise healthy patients who were scheduled for primary tympanoplasty and diagnosed with tubotympanic
CSOM (CSOM group).
In a study conducted on 42 patients with aural polyps, 88% of the cases were related to tubotympanic
otitis media, but in 12% of the cases cholesteatoma was the underlying pathology (9).
Bacteriological study of tubotympanic
type of chronic suppurative otitis media.
Traditionally, CSOM is classified into two types which are tubotympanic
and atticoantral disease [2, 3].
The prevalent chronic form of suppurative otitis media in the students was classified into safe (tubotympanic
) and unsafe (atticoantral) type.
Endoscopic Tympanoplasty vs microscopic Tympanoplasty in tubotympanic
CSOM: a comparative study of 44 cases Int J Res Med Sci.
Reasons that the DPOAE could not be conducted or the reading was not valid included the child not staying still or the child having upper respiratory/ear conditions such as acute sinusitis or inflammation of the middle ear/acute tubotympanic
catarrh at the time of testing at 45 months.
Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) of the tubotympanic
type, is a widely prevalent condition in ENT.
We conducted a prospective study of 25 patients--10 men and 15 women, aged 19 to 45 years (mean: 30.4 [+ or -] 7.2)--who each had a small, dry, unilateral tympanic membrane perforation that had been caused by tubotympanic
chronic suppurative otitis media.
