Abstract

Objective: Cholesteatoma of middle ear in children has a more aggressive development process and faster growth than that among adults. The aim of this study was to establish the dominant causes of cholesteatoma recurrence in children and to determine the optimal surgical treatment.

Methods: This study describes 92 cases of cholesteatomas found on 89 children. The first group consists of 44 cases of cholesteatomas that were operated with the wall up surgical technique, and the second group consists of 48 cases operated with the wall down surgical technique.

Results: Recurrence cholesteatoma was diagnosed in 18 (19.5%) patients. In cases where the wall up, surgical technique was applied cholesteatoma recurrence was diagnosed in 14 (32%) cases. By contrast, in the wall down surgical technique recurrence was found in only 4 (8%).

Conclusion: Factors that can influence the appearance of recurrence are the: patient’s age, type of applied surgical technique, size of mastoid process, degree of damage on the hearing chain and pathological changes in the second ear.
