Abstract / Bemerkung
Objectives: To investigate posterior external ear canal wall reconstruction with a composite cartilage titanium mesh graft in canal wall down tympanoplasty and revision surgery for open mastoids. Study design: Retrospective case review. Setting: Tertiary referral centre. Methods: As a preliminary study, 15 selected patients underwent reconstruction of a posterior ear canal wall defect with titanium mesh. Large defects of the posterior external auditory canal wall, resulting from canal wall down tympanoplasty or present in revision surgery, were eliminated by reconstruction using a titanium mesh. The mesh was covered with conchal cartilage and attached to the cortical mastoid bone using 3-mm titanium screws. Results: All patients maintained a normal contour of the external ear canal, without depression, extrusion or infection. There were no failures, based on short-term post-operative controls. However, two procedures had to be revised due to incomplete coverage of the titanium mesh. Conclusions: This study shows that reconstruction of the posterior ear canal wall with a composite cartilage titanium mesh is a valuable method for preserving the morphology of the external auditory canal in selected cases. Problems occurring in canal wall down tympanomastoidectomy and radical cavities may therefore be avoided. However, long-term results have yet to be evaluated.
