Surgery for congenital cholesteatoma is challenging in a narrow pediatric middle ear, notably when the congenital cholesteatoma fills the whole tympanic cavity.
In this webinar, I will show a movie that details the various stages of the surgery, from removal to reconstruction.
We will discuss how to separate the cholesteatoma from the tympanic membrane, how to decrease the volume of the cholesteatoma to remove it safely, how to identify the stapes safely. I will also present the consensus statement of the IPOG experts group concerning this surgery.
