Slide 1 - Temporal Bone Fractures and Surgical Approaches for CSF Leaks Arthur Wu, MD UCLA Division of Head and Neck Surgery
Slide 2 - Incidence and Epidemiology Blunt head trauma typically MVA Penetrating trauma eg. GSW have worse prognosis 2/2 carotid or brain injury
Slide 3 - Symptoms Hearing loss: conductive or sensorineural Dizziness Facial weakness or paralysis (7% overall) Otorrhea Rhinorrhea More rare: facial numbness and diplopia
Slide 4 - Physical Examination Hemotympanum Battle’s sign: postauricular ecchymosis Raccoon sign: periorbital ecchymosis
Slide 5 - Otoscopy Otorrhea: bloody or clear and pulsatile (send for β2 transferrin) Pneumatic otoscopy: vertigo or flaccid TM Laceration of canal wall
Slide 6 - Others Nasal exam for rhinorrhea Facial nerve exam Extraocular movement exam for nystagmus or diplopia Tuning fork exam Audiometric testing
Slide 7 - Imaging High resolution CT is the gold standard MRI for cranial nerve injury MRA or angiogram for vascular injury
Slide 8 - Types of fractures Longitudinal: along long axis of the petrous temporal bone Tranverse: perpendicular to the long axis of the petrous bone (commonly from the jugular foramen or foramen magnum to the middle cranial fossa) Mixed: in reality most fractures are mixed type
Slide 9 - Longitudinal Fractures Most common (up to 80%) Path of least resistance Ossicular chain and the perigeniculate ganglion region of the facial nerve can be involved Otic capsule involvement is rare Facial nerve injury in 10-20%
Slide 10 - Longitudinal Fractures
Slide 11 - Transverse Fractures Commonly involves bony labrynth leading to SNHL and vertigo Facial nerve injury quoted as up to 50% Higher impact injuries Anterior-Posterior force
Slide 12 - Transverse Fractures
Slide 13 - Mixed Fractures
Slide 14 - The Good News For vast majority of temporal bone fractures, we do nothing!
Slide 15 - Indications for Surgical Intervention Facial nerve injury Hearing loss CSF leak
Slide 16 - Facial Nerve Injury Overall 7% of temporal bone fractures, 25% of these being permanent Delayed onset vs Immediate onset Delayed onset: complete recovery in 94% Immediate onset: complete recovery in 50-75% Site of injury: 80-90% perigeniculate ie tympanic segment (followed by labrynthine and meatal)
Slide 17 - Facial Nerve Injury Goal: to explore only those nerves with crush injury or some degree of transection Neuropraxia: Transient block of axoplasmic flow ( no neural atrophy/damage) Axonotmesis: damage to nerve axon with preservation of the epineurium (regrowth) Neurotmesis: Complete disruption of the nerve ( no chance of organized regrowth)
Slide 18 - Nerve Conduction Testing EMG and ENOG If EMG shows voluntary activity, then good prognosis EMG will show fibrillation potentials if nerve out in 2 wks (not very helpful) Operate when ENOG shows 90% degeneration Wallerian degeneration is not documented on electrodiagnostic testing for 3 to 5 days after the neurotmesis, surgical intervention is delayed until several days after the nerve has degenerated The efficacy of decompression of a posttraumatic, nonsevered nerve remains to be proven in a randomized, prospective study Note: ENOG requires normal side for comparison
Slide 19 - Hearing Loss 80% of conductive hearing loss resolves spontaneously SNHL worse prognosis of recovery If persistent CHL, then can take later to OR for possible ossicular reconstruction or tympanoplasty depending on etiology
Slide 20 - CSF Leak Otorrhea, rhinorrhea, dizziness, serous effusion, meningitis 15-20% of all temporal bone fractures Usually associated with longitudinal fractures involving the tegmen High resolution CT usually sufficient; CT cisternogram may be helpful for specific site Typically involves tear in dura of tegmen Leaks 2/2 otic capsule disruption less likely to heal spontaneously
Slide 21 - Conservative Treatment HOB elevation > 30 deg Lumbar drain Stool softeners No noseblowing, coughing Brodie and Thompson et al. 820 T-bone fractures/122 CSF leaks Spontaneous resolution with conservative measures 95/122 (78%): within 7 days 21/122(17%): between 7-14 days 5/122(4%): Persisted beyond 2 weeks
Slide 22 - Preventing Meningitis: Antibiotics?? Same study: 7% developed meningitis with no significant difference between those treated with antibiotics and not Many studies demonstrate no benefit but difficult to see differences from overall low numbers Hoff et al conducted a prospective randomized trial; no patients in either arm got meningitis Metaanalysis by Brodie demonstrates difference of 8% vs 2% for abx vs no abx
Slide 23 - Surgical Intervention From Cummings
Slide 24 - Technique Meta-analysis showed that both techniques have similar success rates Onlay: if adjacent structures at risk, or if the underlay is not possible
Slide 25 - Technique Muscle, fascia, fat, cartilage, Duragen, bone pate, hydroxyapatite cement The success rate is significantly higher for those patients who undergo primary closure with a multi-layer technique versus those patients who only get single-layer closure. Refractory cases may require closure of the EAC and obliteration.
Slide 26 - ppt slide no 26 content not found
Slide 27 - Leaks of the Lateral Tegmen Accessed through transmastoid Taken from Myers
Slide 28 - Leaks of the Medial Tegmen May require transmastoid combined with middle fossa approach
