Anatomical, functional and quality-of-life results for mastoid and epitympanic obliteration with bioactive glass s53p4: a prospective clinical study
We start off with a publication overview of an article by Bernardeschi et al (2017). Mastoid and epitympanic obliterations were performed using S53P4 bioactive glass and the cases were analysed 1 year post op. The study shows that canal-wall-down or canal-wall-up tympanoplasties obliterated with S53P4 is effective in both primary and revision surgery. The anatomical and functional results appear to be well correlated with patient experience and to the improvement in quality of life. Read the abstract here.
