Do contemporary temporal bone
fracture classification systems reflect concurrent intracranial and cervical spine injuries?.
Surgical management of a pneumatized articular eminence of the temporal bone
. J Oral Maxillofac Surg 1982; 40:311-313.
Of a total of 55 patients with temporal bone
osteomyelitis, 15 patients had previous ear operation (2 ventilation tube insertions, 1 C[O.sub.2] laser operation, 1 type I tympanoplasty, and 11 tympanomastoidectomies).
CT can detect deviations in the course and caliber of the intratemporal facial nerve, which can provide key information regarding facial nerve pathology and prove critical in surgical planning for otologic surgery.
Extracanalicular osteomas of the temporal bone
. Arch Otolaryngol 1979; 105: 706-9.
The size and macroscopic structure of the models were comparable to a real temporal bone
. The "feel" of drilling was fairly close to real bone in most of the studied models.
Many investigators have studied the IAM on radiographs, on casts, in dissected temporal bones
, and in histologic sections (Amjad et al., 1969; Schuknecht & Gulja, 1986; Silverstein et al., 1988; Fujita & Sando, 1994; Bosbuga et al., 1998; Lescanne et al., 2002), and have found that the dimensions, shape, and volume of the normal adult IAM vary widely, even between to sides of the same individual, as well as among different individuals.
The transducer output in the temporal bone
and the mechanical middle ear model showed a plateau around 0.1 im for frequencies below 800 Hz.
Any member of these audiences will benefit from reading Imaging of the Temporal Bone
CT without injection typically shows an opacity of the tympanomastoid cavity associated with an hyperostosis of the temporal bone
and a hairy aspect of the margins of the involved bone .
A lack of familiarity with the temporal bone
anatomy appears to have contributed to the facial nerve injury in majority of these patients.
Although very rarely encountered, myxomas can be seen in different parts of the temporal bone
and other parts of the head and neck region (1-8).
