Abstract

Prospective Study of Glomus Jugulare and Tympanicum Tumors: Clinical Findings, Surgical Approach and Outcomes, Short-Term Follow-Up: A Clinical Perspective

A glomus tumor is the most common primary tumor of the middle ear, typically presenting with pulsatile tinnitus and unilateral hearing loss. This study provides a clinical perspective of glomus tumors.

Methods: A prospective study was performed on 26 patients (10 with glomus tympanicum and 16 with glomus jugulare) from January 2009 to January 2011 in Amir Alam Hospital (tertiary referral center). All patients underwent neurological examination, audiometry, and radiological survey before and after surgery. A questionnaire was completed by patients to evaluate their postoperative quality of life. The Fisch classification was used in this study.

Keywords: Glomus tympanicum; Glomus jugulare; Surgical approach; Preoperative; Postoperative
