OBJECTIVE: Aim of this study is evaluation of course of improvement of surgically treated cases of chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) with cholesteatoma; it includes hearing status, condition of mastoid cavity, study of different, natural and surgical condition and recurrence of disease within the study period.
DESIGN: It is a prospective study.
SETTINGS: This study was conducted in a premiere government hospital in Kolkata between May 2007 to April 2008.
PATIENTS: Total 40 patients between age group of 6-70 years were included in the present study which includes 19 males and 21 females.
INTERVENTION: Surgical interventions were done in all the cases. Different types of mastoidectomy with or without tympanoplasty was done according to extent of disease process.
OUTCOME: Audiometrically documentable hearing improvement occurred in 35% cases (p = 14), in rest of the ears hearing status remained unaltered. At the end of 6 months follow up 92.5% (p = 14) in rest (p = 37) operated ears become completely dry. Five percent cases (p = 2) presented with facial paralysis; among them one patient improved completely and another patient improved from grade V to grade III facial paralysis. No patient developed any post operative intracranial complications and recurrence of cholesteatema not found in 6 months follow up. Meatal stenosis developed in 5% cases (p = 2) at the end of 6 months.
CONCLUSION: Surgery is mainstay of treatment in CSOM with cholesteatoma. Eradication of disease, prevention of complication, maintenance and restoration of hearing, and giving the patient a non-discharging ear are main aim of treatment.
