Cochlear Implant Center  

Cochlear implantation in children (performed only at the local clinic) - over 1000 patients have been implanted so far. Long-term rehabilitation under the leadership of a team of phoniatrician, speech therapist, clinical engineer is absolutely necessary.

BAHA center

The center was established on the basis of a successfully defended IGA grant from the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic in 1993.

These operations were performed at the ENT clinic of Charles University, 2nd Faculty of Medicine and University Hospital in Motol as the first in the Czech Republic.

As part of the grant, BAHA screw was implanted in 9 patients. After the operation was included in the list of services of the health insurance company, another 2008 patients were operated on in 2.  year 2009 was already the operation is included among the regular procedures at the clinic.

Endoscopic center

Around 1000 endoscopic procedures in children each year, they de facto create an endoscopic center with centralization

  1. of all more complex foreign bodies in the respiratory and swallowing tract in children - connection to the bronchological and pneumological center prof. Pohunka
  2. treatment of stenoses and strictures of the larynx and trachea in children - we concentrate the most difficult cases from all over the country
  3. laryngeal papillomatosis in children - we also concentrate the most difficult cases from all over the country
  4. reconstruction of laryngeal developmental defects (in cooperation with the pediatric cardiocenter and trachea).

Center for surgical treatment of thyroid disease in childhood and adolescence

From 2005 to 2013, we successfully operated on over 300 pediatric patients with thyroid disease.

- The main surgeon and coordinator is MUDr. Katra Rami, Ph.D., who specializes in neck surgery.

- We provide comprehensive care and, in cooperation with the Department of Nuclear Medicine and Endocrinology of the National Hospital, also postoperative adjuvant therapy.

- The advantage of the endocrine surgery center is an individual approach 

- Our results are comparable to world centers.  

  • Following the treatment of children with cystic fibrosis, we perform interventions for VDN.
  • At the ENT clinic, the first, so far unique swallowing center is being established, where the swallowing rehabilitation is conducted on the basis of an analysis of a slow-motion cinematic recording of the swallowing act and esophageal manometry. We build on the latest research in the world. The condition is a perfect evaluation of the cause and location of the swallowing disorder.
  • The ENT clinic provides facilities for the children's and operating children's oncology clinic and thus helps to provide comprehensive care for children with cancer.
  • Collaboration with a genetic laboratory for the detection of the gene for Connexin 26, which is responsible for deafness in about 50% of congenitally deaf people.
  • The clinic has launched a tissue engineering project to create a cartilaginous basis for reconstructive operations in the middle ear (grants from the GAČR and cooperation with the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the ASCR).

Inpatient department

House rules for parents accompanying children admitted to the inpatient part of the ENT clinic of the 2nd Medical Faculty of Charles University and the MOTOL University Hospital

Dear Parents, We welcome you to our department and would like to present you with an overview of your rights and obligations and our requirements. It is essential to create the best possible conditions to support the treatment and protection of your children. If your stay at the clinic is covered by an insurance company, it is from the funds intended for treatment. We assume that you will be actively involved in the treatment process and that together we will be able to create a friendly environment for all children who have to spend more or less time at the clinic. We very much appreciate your helpful attitude as well as your mindfulness and consideration towards children with disabilities and those who cannot have their parents with them.

Clinic options:

The clinic has several folding chairs designed primarily for accompanying children under 3 years. We prefer to store breastfeeding mothers or escorts with handicapped children.

The hostel has beds to accompany children under 6 years of age paid for by the insurance company.

For children over 6 years of age, an escort can be accommodated only for a fee at the hostel, this stay is no longer covered by the insurance company, therefore the escort is not entitled to food either. Absence from work must be dealt with by the employer in agreement.

For every child can  be only 1 escort at a time  from 7.00 am to 20.00 pm Anyone can be an accompanying person. Please respect the fact that we accommodate same-sex escorts in the rooms. If capacity and operational reasons do not allow accommodation, we offer the possibility of sleeping in a hostel.

All other visits, including the second of the parents, come to the ward during the visiting hours, ie from 15 pm to 18 pm.

To maintain basic hygiene rules (including maintaining good interpersonal relationships and protecting the personalities of all children in the clinic) it is necessary:

1. observe the regime of the day of the ward, which is posted on the notice board. At the same time, follow the instructions of the nursing staff, who must reconcile the needs of all children (including visits, counseling, transport from the ward to the operating room and back).

4. If you leave the child, always report it to the relevant ward nurse (she is responsible for the ward), put the child in a cot and secure her. When you return, call and report by home phone, do not let anyone in the ward, to ensure the safety of children, every newcomer must report to the nurse.Never underestimate this measure!

5. Stay with your child mostly in the room or in the playroom. Use all your free time to develop the child, his needs and games. Please do not walk or stand in the corridor of the ward, do not let your children run here. From a security point of view, this corridor must always be passable.

6. Respect the noon calm, from lunch until 15.00 pm, when the child must rest on his / her bed all the time! Only by harmonizing the rest time of all children can we achieve an adequate effect for strengthening the body of each - even your - child.      

7th visits to all children (including escorts) are from 15.00 pm to 18.00 pm On the day of the operation, a maximum of two family members can visit, the child needs peace to recover. Children from the age of 3 can visit the ward (this also applies to the child's siblings). Bedding is possible for bedridden patients. Visits to the ICU can only be individual, it is necessary to use the coat you receive from the nurse.

8. Please help keep order, bring delicacies to children only to a limited extent. We welcome you to think of children who are not attended by their parents, but always ask your nurse if you can share a foreign child.

The ENT clinic was established as a workplace of the Children's Medical Faculty of Charles University. It began to develop in the "find" in Karlov in 1946 and focused on children's ENT issues. The first chief was Prof. MD B. Wiškovský, which he replaced in 1953 Doc. MD Jan Chvojka. In the years 1960-1979 he ran a clinic Doc. MD Jan KlosDrSc. Since its inception, the clinic has worked closely with the ENT department of the Central Military Hospital in the teaching of medics, where internships for adult patients took place.
The clinic moved to the new premises of the hospital in Motol in 1978. In 1981, he took over the management of the clinic Prof. MD Jaroslav Fajstavr, Dr.Sc. At the same time, the Children's ENT Clinic was merged with the Motol ENT department for adults. Even after the merger, the autonomy of both workplaces was preserved, with all the advantages of close cooperation in clinical, pedagogical and scientific research activities. In 1998, in connection with the opening of a new monoblock for adults and reorganizations in the Prague healthcare system, the children's section became independent again. With the departure of prof. MUDr. Fajstavra retired, took over the management of the clinic doc. MD Zdeněk Kabelka Ph.D..
Prof. Fajstavr has been very involved in creating the image of the clinic. As an excellent surgeon, he developed his technique, based on the Hradec Králové school of Prof. Hybáška, mainly in the field of pediatric ENT. A close connection with the Department of Pediatric Oncology formed a team of collaborators, able to diagnose and surgically solve oncological diseases in children in the ENT areas at European level. Another important field of interest for the clinic is endoscopic examinations of the larynx, tracheobronchial tree and esophagus, including the operating solution. One of the best experts in pediatric endoscopy was the long-term medical deputy head of the clinic, primary MUDr. Jiří Kanta, who after his retirement was fully replaced by the head MUDr. Pavel Březovský. This springboard enabled their successor, the headmaster, MUDr. Milena Marková not only continues the tradition of perfect diagnostic and treatment procedures, but also shifts the clinic's capabilities thanks to the acquisition of state-of-the-art technology. Since 2008, MUDr. Jurovčík, who further improves the technique of endoscopic procedures, mainly through the development of laser technology and the introduction of biodegradable stents.

Therapy congenital malformations in the ENT area and surgical treatment of hearing loss it is also one of the professional topics of the clinic, developed from its establishment to the present cochlear implant surgery in children. Cochlear Implantation Center for Children, headed by Doc. MUDr. Zdeněk Kabelka, was the first workplace in the Czech Republic to start dealing with this issue in children. The program of cochlear implants in children was started in 1993 and in 2013 the total number of operated children reached 530, currently at 2016 the center is approaching the number of 700 operated patients. Another significant shift is the introduction of bilateral cochlear implantation in patients with congenital deafness. 

New operating room equipment and new equipment with special surgical instruments enable finer operating techniques in general, especially in the middle ear area. Hand in hand with the development of surgical options, the diagnostic possibilities of the clinic are also developing. Apparatus for hearing examination they allow the examination of children shortly after birth and relatively very accurate determination of the hearing threshold even in very young children help unique SSEP device, which was the only one in Central Europe in 2000. Currently, the diagnostics is further refined using the Hearlab device.
The surgical treatment of the diseases of the paranasal sinuses and the tactics of treatment have changed significantly with the adoption of the concept functional endonasal surgery and the use of new medicines. Issues is successfully dedicated to MUDr. Hana Fišerová in cooperation with the departments of imaging methods, allergology, immunology and microbiology.

Prim. MUDr. Michal Jurovčík followed on endoscopic tradition of the clinic and continues to develop state-of-the-art endoscopic techniques, including applications laser, shaver, microshaver and harmonic.

Gradual increase in number thyroid disease for children, it required the creation of a new specialized center dealing with endocrine surgery. The number of operations exceeds 50 per year. The main surgeon is MUDr. Katra Rami, Ph.D., who specializes in cervical surgery in general, with a special focus on the thyroid and parathyroid glands in childhood and adolescence. We provide comprehensive care to our patients and, in cooperation with the Department of Nuclear Medicine and Endocrinology of the National Hospital, also postoperative adjuvant therapy. We rely heavily on an individual approach. From 2005 to 2013, we successfully operated on 300 pediatric patients with thyroid disease. Our results are comparable to world centers.  

Due to the fact that the problem of so-called extraesophageal reflux also appears in the pediatric ENT area, our workplace is equipped with a device for measuring reflux episodes. This type of examination is known as 24-hour combined multichannel impedance and esophageal pH monitoring. This is the latest method to detect different types of reflux, especially those that extend beyond the esophagus and reach the airways.
