Abstract
Objectives: To demonstrate the need for computed tomography imaging of the temporal bone before considering revision stapes surgery in patients with recurrent or residual conductive hearing loss. Case report: We report the case of a high-riding jugular bulb with an associated jugular bulb diverticulum, which was dehiscent towards the vestibular aqueduct, in a patient with confirmed otosclerosis who did not experience hearing improvement after stapedotomy. Conclusion: This case demonstrates the usefulness of temporal bone computed tomography in the evaluation of patients with otosclerosis in whom stapedotomy has not improved hearing. In such patients, revision surgery to address residual hearing loss would eventually prove unnecessary and avoidable.
