Query re Second Looks after Canal Up Mastoidectomy for Cholesteatoma

Up to ASOHNS Discussion Board
Prof. Ron Gristwood forwarded an email from Prof. Jacob Slade, his colleague in Israel. Below is an extract of an inquiry from Prof. Slade : (QUOTE) From: Jacob Sade Email: To: Ron Gristwood Sent: Sunday, March 29, 2009 2:13 PM Dear Ron, I was very pleased last year to receive a letter from you and to learn that you are well. I also liked and enjoyed very much your two papers on otosclerosis. I wonder if I could trouble you on the following: I am due to open a discussion on Second Looks after Canal Up Mastoidectomy for Cholesteatoma and wonder how many surgeons actually do it routinely. As a "rule" I thought that this is performed more frequently in the US than in Europe (since Jim Sheehy advocated it long ago)-but I have not seen anything in writing that will indicate that this is really so. May I trouble and ask you whether you yourself perform routinely Second Looks?-and would you happen to know what the situation regarding this is in the Australian "Otological Community"-I realize that in a way this is an impossible question. (UNQUOTE)
