Considerations for Hearing Loss and Treatment in Bilateral Otic Capsule Sparing Temporal Bone Fractures (PD102514)

Presenter(s): Stephanie Feller; Akbar Razvi, AuD
Course Description

This session covers a unique case of bilateral temporal bone fractures: one that spares the otic capsule yet presents with a large sensorineural component. The speaker describes the anatomy and physiology of the temporal bone to provide background information about potential structures that can be damaged in a fracture as well as explain the varying etiologies of temporal bone fractures (TBF). In addition, this session discusses possible outcomes from a TBF in relation to hearing loss and facial nerve function and potential implications for treatment, including cochlear implantation.

This course is a recorded technical session from the 2021 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 4042V).

You will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy and physiology of the temporal bone
  • Identify the etiologies and various presentations of temporal bone fractures based on the type of fracture
  • Discuss outcomes for cochlear implantation compared to other treatment options in patients with temporal bone fractures
