A review of the patient's personal history revealed that she had suffered from frequent otorrhea since childhood and 22 years ago had undergone a canal-wall-down tympanomastoidectomy
, owing to extended cholesteatoma of the right ear.
No tympanoplasties had been performed but 1 patient had undergone tympanomastoidectomy
at another hospital.
Treatment for childhood CHL may involve medical and surgical management, ranging from myringotomy and ventilation tube (grommet) insertion for persistent middle-ear effusions, tympanomastoidectomy
for cholesteatoma with recon-struction of the ossicular chain, to bone-anchored hearing systems for congenital aural atresia.
As with their lab's sinus surgery simulation-based rehearsal program, Stanford's tympanomastoidectomy
simulator incorporates data from the actual patient anatomy, derived from the information in merged CT and MRI scans.
The patient was taken to the operating room for a left tympanomastoidectomy
In addition to demographic data and the type of prosthesis, we compiled information on pre- and postoperative audiometric findings, the underlying diagnosis, the timing of surgery (primary, planned, or revision), the type of surgery (tympanoplasty alone, tympanoplasty with antrotomy, intact-canal-wall tympanomastoidectomy
, or canal-wall-down tympanomastoidectomy
), the extent of reconstruction (partial or total), the use of the malleus, the use of a tragal cartilage graft, and evidence of extrusion.

In 2007, a 67-year-old man underwent right tympanomastoidectomy
A left tympanomastoidectomy
with facial nerve monitoring (Nerve Integrity Monitor system; Medtronic, Inc.
The procedure involved a left intact-wall tympanomastoidectomy
, a facial recess approach to the middle ear that exposed the tumor (figure 2), a retrofacial approach to the jugular bulb and skull base, a resection of the intra- and extracranial components of the jugular bulb neoplasm via a transmastoid approach to the hypotympanum and jugular fossa, and placement of a lumbar drain.
We evaluated a patient with a white mass (figure) who had previously undergone a right-side canal-wall-up tympanomastoidectomy
for chronic otitis media.
