Indicazioni all'impianto cocleare - parte 2

  1. 1. Round window /Cochleostomy
  2. 2. Device Positioning device away from processor receiver/stimulator oriented differently in infants
  3. 3. Displacement Force Calculation AL R P mg
  4. 4. Tie-down – Devices with and withouta Pedestal the bed the device tied in
  5. 5. Visualizing the Round Window key  to cochleostomy placement is finding landmarks every time  most important landmark is the round window
  6. 6. Visualizing the Round Window hand position differs on the left side care with stapes tendon
  7. 7. Round Window always present round window overhang relationship to oval window is constant jugular bulb stapes tendon Cavity Common Right Ear rolls away in jugular bulb anomalies
  8. 8. Round Window cochleostomy  direction  entry into the scala tympani
  9. 9. Cochleostomy vs. Round Window bone in round window steeper angle at first turn contact hard to pack/seal right ear bone in hook region
  10. 10. Cochleostomy vs. Round Window bone in round right ear window steeper angle at first turn contact hard to pack/seal
  11. 11. Cochleostomy vs. Round Window bone in round window steeper angle at first turn contact hard to pack/seal
  12. 12. Preparing the Cochleostomy anterior to the round window as inferior as possible look often
  13. 13. Cochleostomy with curved burs Curved HS Neurotology Burs Coolant Wrap
  14. 14. Opening the Cochlea pick used in “soft” technique hearing preservation
  15. 15. Drilling the Cochleostomy right ear target is scala tympani enter cochlea expand in anterior and inferior direction slow speed drilling
  16. 16. Drilling the Cochleostomy right ear target is scala tympani
  17. 17. Drilling the Cochleostomy slow speed drilling round off anterior and inferior edges (electrode is 0.8 mm) flush out bone dust
  18. 18. Ideal Cochlear Entry Point

  21. 21. Abnormal Cochleae 25% of anomalous cochleae have technical challenges at OR  gushers  anomalous VII n. anatomy  problematic exposure
  22. 22. Perilymph Gushers enlarged vestibular aqueduct (VAE)
  23. 23. Perilymph Gushers enlarged vestibular aqueduct (VAE) common cavity deformity
  24. 24. Perilymph Gushers enlarged vestibular aqueduct (VAE) common cavity deformity incomplete partition (IP-1)
  25. 25. Facial Nerve Anomalies common (14%) and associated with:  CC and HC  anomalous stapes  nerve can split proximally facial nerve monitor essential
  26. 26. Problematic Anatomyhypoplastic cochleaanteriorly displaced CN VIIprominent sinus pericrani
  27. 27. Re-implantation device failure device infection  (leave array in cochlea if possible)
  28. 28. Re-implantation tips  be prepared to drill around cochleostomy  insert new array immediately old array removed  straight array narrower but more flexible
  29. 29. Choice of electrode array IndicationsOptions general use, atraumatic Pre-curved AOS insertion incomplete partition Straight hearing preservation Short apical stimulation Long ossified cochleae Double or split
  30. 30. Conclusion keys to success are:  appropriate selection of the patient  fixation of the receiver stimulator  identification of landmarks for round window/cochleostomy  care with abnormal cochleae  appropriate selection of the electrode
  31. 31. CONCLUSIONS 2 CI is generally possible in cases with inner ear malformations Variable results (neural function) generally satisfactory results Facial nerve anomalies Surgical issues •surgical access Cochlear anomalies •CSF gusher (difficult to radiologically predict) •type of array •array placement misplacement in the IAC (++IP I, IP III, CC, CH) Programming difficulties / facial nerve electrical stimulation Fenestral CSF fistula (++)Higher risk of post-op. meningitis CSF fistula at cochleostomy site (--)
  32. 32.  Cochlear nerve aplasia-hypoplasia is not uncommon(unilateral ++)Cochlear nerve aplasia associated to a normal labirynth is possibleA severely narrowed IAC (2 mm) indicates a severe hypoplasia of the cochleo-vestibularnerve, but not a sure absence of the cochlear nerve (if the cochlear duct is present and thelabirynth is malformed, the possibility of a functioning cochlear nerve is higher) A normal IAC does not garantee the presence of a normal cochleo-vestibular nerve(unilateral cases, parasagittal reconstructions) The outcome after CI in pts with aplasia-hypoplasia of the cochlear n. are generally scarce
