Clinical experience with silastic middle-ear prostheses


, : Clinical experience with silastic middle-ear prostheses. Ceskoslovenska Otolaryngologie 38(1): 11-16

The authors made clinical tests of silastic prostheses of the middle ear, type PORP, TORP and piston. They used 29 X PORP, 26 X TORP and 21 pistons. They did not reveal any signs of tissue intolerance to Silastic MDX 44-516, which is used for making prostheses. They achieved satisfactory anatomical and functional results. They recorded an auditory gain in more than half the patients (early: PORP 97%, TORP 73%, piston 52%; plasty transplants of ossicles obtained from subjects who died accidentallyĕ For preserfic Council of the Ministry of Health, Czech Socialist Republic, recommended, based on the clinical tests, the manufacture of silastic prostheses of the middle ear.

It is believed that 15°-25° head-down tilt position increases the internal jugular vein cross-sectional area (IJV CSA). The increase in IJV CSA before puncture reduces the risk of its perforation. This pattern was not observed in all patients. W...

The mean platelet count is significantly lower than in controls (P < 0.0005...
