    Short and Long-term Results of Stapedectomy in Children.

    Laryngoscope 108:569-572, 1998.

        


    Stapedectomy can be a useful treatment for juvenile otosclerosis. However, long term follow-up does reveal progressive hearing loss.

    Revision Stapedectomy for Incus Erosion: Long-term Hearing.

    Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 119:370-373, 1998.

         


    Eroded incus is a common problem in revision stapedectomy. 83 patients were followed up from 1 to 20 years.

         


    The risk of incus erosion appears to be decreased with the Robinson prosthesis. The Lippy modified prosthesis yields good long-term outcomes. With subsequent revision, outcomes worsen.

    Stapedectomy
    in  Military
    Aircrew 

    Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg  118:9-14,
    1998.


      

    Stapedial
    surgery may pose a considerable risk for those in
    certain occupations e.g. military aircrews who
    challenge the function of the cochleovestibular
    system with each mission.   Aircrew members who have had stapedectomies have been
    rejected for all flying duties by the surgeon
    General of the Air Force. 
    As additional clinical experience was gained,
    waivers for flight duty were granted on an
    individual basis. 
    The aeromedical outcome for aircrew members
    who returned to flight duty after stapedectomy was
    reviewed.

     

    Before aircrew members returned to flight duty,
    patients were subjected to centrifuge and altitude
    -chamber testing, electronystagmography, rotational
    chairs, and actual test flights. 
    In the entire group studied, no episodes of
    sudden hearing loss or vestibulopathic conditions
    occurred.
