12 Possible Causes for Poorly Aerated Mastoids, Tympanic Membrane Perforation

  • Acute Mastoiditis

    Chronic mastoiditis results in a sclerotic, poorly aerated mastoid cavity (Figure 155-7).[otologytextbook.net] The main signs of progressive infection were tympanic membrane perforation, pulsatile suppurative secretion from the mucosa, and intratemporal abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When ear discharge was present, the middle ear fluid was directly collected from the tympanic membrane perforation after cleaning of the external ear canal with a dry cotton[link.springer.com]

  • Patulous Eustachian Tube

    The present results indicate that the symptoms associated with patulous ET may be more distressful in patients with poorly developed mastoid cavity than in those with well-aerated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In a perforated tympanic membrane, the manometer of the impedance bridge can be used to measure middle ear pressure changes.[emedicine.com] “Although generally quite safe, this invasive procedure has the potential to produce sequelae, including tympanic membrane perforation, scarring, and hearing loss,” Dr.[enttoday.org]

  • Kartagener Syndrome

    Synopsis poorly aerated mastoids absence of frontal sinuses chronic sinusitis conductive deafness chronic otitis media corneal abnormalities rhinitis nasal polyps anosmia[humpath.com] Ventilation tube insertion is associated with a high level of post-operative mucoid otorrhoea and tympanic membrane perforation. 41 This operation should be avoided if at[adc.bmj.com] CT scan will reveal bronchiectasis and also demonstrate involvement of paranasal sinuses poorly aerated mastoids and absence of frontal sinuses.[symptoma.com]

  • Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media

    PNEUMATIZATION - Cavity size on CT: big or small, well or poorly aerated, sclerotic or not - children with chronic OME have more sclerotic mastoids with decreased pneumatization[ent.com.au] Three of these five cases had a perforation of the tympanic membrane preceding the appearance of typical chronic myringitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The commonest type seen was the tubo-tympanic disease with antero-inferior tympanic membrane perforation.[sciencedomain.org]

  • Mastoiditis

    Chronic mastoiditis results in a sclerotic, poorly aerated mastoid cavity (Figure 155-7).[otologytextbook.net] tympanic membrane.[emedicine.medscape.com] Although tympanic membrane perforation/otorrhea rates steadily increased during that period, mastoiditis and ventilating tube insertion rates decreased in the last years of[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia 7

    CT scan for bronchiectasis and to demonstrate involvement of paranasal sinuses (poorly aerated mastoids absence of frontal sinuses).[patient.info] membrane perforations.[journals.viamedica.pl] In patients P3, P5 and P6, the main complication was tympanic membrane perforation, and bronchiectasis less significant.[journals.viamedica.pl]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia 13

    CT scan for bronchiectasis and to demonstrate involvement of paranasal sinuses (poorly aerated mastoids absence of frontal sinuses).[patient.info] membrane perforations develop (particularly after repeated VT insertion), tympanoplasty is generally successful, but the glue ear often reoccurs.[adc.bmj.com] […] reports challenge this, claiming good hearing restoration following VT insertion with episodic discharge causing no greater burden than in non-PCD patients. 42–44 Should tympanic[adc.bmj.com]

  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia 22
