Psychiatry related information on Stapes Surgery


High impact information on Stapes Surgery

  • Numerous attempts to deal surgically with otosclerosis were made before the current method of stapedectomy with stapes prosthesis was established [7].
  • Two clinical studies analyze the long-term hearing results and complications in patients who had undergone CO2 laser stapedectomy revision (59 patients) and CO2 laser stapedotomy (153 patients) [8].
  • CONCLUSIONS: The Nitinol piston greatly simplifies the stapedectomy procedure by taking the need for a hand operated instrument out of the surgeon's hands [9].
  • An Internet survey of the relevant literature in English shows a scarcity of publications on the incidence of BPPV following stapedectomy [1].
  • OBJECTIVE: The molecular defect in patients with X-linked mixed deafness showing a perilymphatic gusher at stapedectomy (DFN3) has been attributed to mutations in the POU3F4 gene [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Stapes Surgery

  • Ipriflavone (7-isopropoxy-isoflavone) was attempted to relieve tinnitus of otosclerotic patients prior to stapedectomy and continuing the treatment postoperatively in a 6 months regimen [11].

Anatomical context of Stapes Surgery


Associations of Stapes Surgery with chemical compounds

  • Osseous disease of the external canal was removed and stapedectomy was performed, using the Argon laser on 15 patients [21].
  • Sodium fluoride has now been used for 24 years in an effort to slow down or arrest sensorineural hearing nerve deterioration in patients with stapedial otosclerosis or after stapedectomy, as well as in patients with pure cochlear otosclerosis [22].
  • What the history of stapedectomy reveals is the truth of the quotation from Ecclesiastes, "There is nothing new under the sun." Progress is only made when the Zeitgeist is right, by someone who puts together the truths of the past with the new discoveries of the present [23].
  • Reversible auditory disorders after stapedectomy may be explicable by the intracochlear release of histamine [24].
  • The objective of the study was to determine whether a titanium piston stapes prosthesis would be audiometrically and surgically equivalent to a Robinson stainless steel piston for stapedectomy [25].

Gene context of Stapes Surgery

  • OBJECTIVE: To report a successful stapedectomy for stapedial fixation in a patient with Stickler syndrome type I (COL2A1) [26].
  • Increased sensorineural hearing loss occurred in 0.8% of revision stapedectomy cases [27].
  • This study of a possible relationship between the ABG and the remodeling of the niche in otosclerosis in a significant number of patients operated on by stapedectomy allows the authors to define six types of ABG shape, corresponding to various types of stapedial fixation and remodeling of the niche [28].
  • In 5 ears stapedectomy for tympanosclerosis was performed; 9 patients had otosclerosis and 1 had Treacher Collins syndrome [29].
  • Ten subjects with unilateral stapedectomies were presented with consonant-vowel nonsense syllables in low pass noise at 70, 95, and 110 dB SPL in each ear [30].
