Is bone scanning still of value?

This is an article from Australia of 109 patients, 83 of which had CT, 72 MRI and the presence of bone invasion on imaging was compared with the histopathology. Bone invasion was present in 44 of 109 resection specimens. Bone...

Temporal bone trauma

Introduction Temporal bone injuries represent one of the more complex management problems presenting to the otolaryngologist. This is largely due to difficulties in assessment and the frequent delays in referral, often as a result of other injuries demanding more immediate...

BPPV and bone mineral density

Over the years, attempts have been made to identify modifiable risk factors for BPPV. Due to the chemical composition of otoconia, the role of calcium metabolism and its associated conditions have been studied with no firm conclusions. The authors studied...

Adjoin™ bone conduction system

Patrik Westerkull (PW), Otorix AB, and Ann-Louise McDermott (A-LM), ENT Consultant at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, tell us about the Adjoin bone conduction device, a non-surgical bone-conduction option developed by Otorix. They explain how the product works, the background to the...

Bone grafting in orthognathic surgery

In this systematic review of 48 articles the authors reviewed the complication, stability, aesthetics and healing of Le Fort I, sagittal split, chin and zygomatic osteotomies. They concluded that there was strong evidence that bone grafting promotes healing of a...

Temporal Bone: A Surgeon’s Vision

The foreword to this textbook clearly describes the intentions of the authors to provide a guide to young otologists whilst performing temporal bone dissection and to familiarise them with the temporal bone. To this aim the book wholeheartedly delivers. It...

Temporal Bone Histology and Radiology Atlas

Temporal Bone Histology and Radiology Atlas is an outstanding reference and training manual which will be a rewarding read and purchase for all otolaryngology trainees and, in particular, senior trainees and consultants. Neuro-radiologists and neuro-otologists will enjoy comparing the beautifully-prepared...

Is bone cement a cost-effective solution?

This study looks at the functional results of 52 patients who underwent bone cement ossiculoplasty. Patients were divided into four groups based on ossicular disruption. Group 1 (30 patients) had lenticular erosion only. Group 2 (13 patients) had absent incus....

Facial nerve anatomy in the temporal bone

Knowledge of the facial nerve anatomy during otological surgery is crucial in avoiding an iatrogenic injury to the facial nerve. In this study, the authors investigated the anatomical relationship between the tympanic portion of the facial canal (FC) and the...

3D-printed temporal bone models - how good can they be?

In the era of increasingly difficult and expensive-to-come-by cadaveric temporal bones with which to practise drilling and learn the complex 3D anatomy of the temporal bone, decent alternatives would be welcome. McMillan et al report a prospective comparison study in...

Semi implantable bone conduction devices: challenges and developments

Bone conduction mechanisms and history of bone conduction aids Bone conduction hearing devices work by stimulating hair cells via the bone conduction hearing pathways. These pathways are less well understood than the air conduction pathways, but recent research has shown...

PHACON artificial bone models for ENT training

Simulation, both in training and clinical practice, has become an increasingly important facet of a surgeon’s life. The escalating costs of cadaveric material makes synthetic alternatives an attractive proposition but, up until recently, these artificial versions have lacked the material...
