Hearing Loss

A controlled comparison of auditory steady-state responses and pure-tone audiometry in patients with hearing loss

November 3, 2017  |  Raman Wadhera, MS; Sharad Hernot, MS; Sat Paul Gulati, MS; Vijay Kalra, MS

Abstract

We performed a prospective interventional study to evaluate correlations between hearing thresholds determined by pure-tone audiometry (PTA) and auditory steady-state response (ASSR) testing in two types of patients with hearing loss and a control group of persons with normal...

Correlation between sensorineural hearing loss and chronic otorrhea

November 3, 2017  |  Fernanda Martinho Dobrianskyj, MS; Isis Rocha Dias Goncalves, DO; Yumi Tamaoki, DO; Edson Ibrahim Mitre, MD; Fernando A. Quintanilha Ribeiro, PhD

Abstract

Many studies have attempted to correlate chronic otorrhea in children and in adults with the sensorineural hearing loss in the affected ear, with contradictory results. This loss might be the result of the likely toxicity of the bacteria involved, effects of inflammatory...

Assessment of discrimination ability in ipsilateral and contralateral ears with a unilateral bone-anchored hearing system

August 24, 2017  |  Bahtiyar Celikgun, MSc; M. Tayyar Kalcioglu, MD

Abstract

This study aimed to determine the speech discriminatory ability of the contralateral ear of users of a unilateral bone-anchored hearing system (BAHS). The Oticon Medical Ponto Pro/Ponto Pro Power device brand was used for all patients. Five BAHS users (3 men, 2 women)...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss in human monocytic ehrlichiosis

August 24, 2017  |  Vidur Bhalla, MD; Brian Rodgers, MD; James Lin, MD

Abstract

The hallmarks of symptomatic human monocytic ehrlichiosis (HME) include fever, headache, myalgia, nausea, malaise, transaminitis, and blood cell abnormalities. Previous case reports have described isolated cranial nerve palsies in infected patients but not hearing loss. We...

Cochlear implant electrode array exposure: A delayed complication

July 18, 2017  |  Christina Mishu, AuD; David A. Klodd, PhD; Miriam Redleaf, MD, FACS

Abstract

Exposure of the cochlear implant electrode array as a late complication has been reported rarely in the literature. A retrospective analysis revealed 4 patients presenting with exposure of their cochlear implant electrode arrays from 2 to 17 years after implantation. Data...

The Sophono bone-conduction system: Surgical, audiologic, and quality-of-life outcomes

July 18, 2017  |  Timothy Mclean, MBBS; Irumee Pai, FRCS; Andrew Philipatos, BSc; Michael Gordon, FRACS

Abstract

We prospectively evaluated the surgical, audiologic, and quality-of-life outcomes in 5 patients-2 men and 3 women, aged 22 to 64 years (mean: 41.8)-who were implanted with the Sophono Alpha 2 MPO Processor. The indications for implantation of this bone-conduction device...

Audiometry results and TEOAE and DPOAE amplitudes in men taking a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor for erectile dysfunction

July 18, 2017  |  Sertan Ontepeli, MD; Nuray Bayar Muluk, MD; Devrim Tuglu, MD; Timucin Sipal, MD

Abstract

We conducted a prospective study of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) and distortion-product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) in men who were taking an oral phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor for erectile dysfunction. Our study group was made up of 30 men (60...

Correlation among external auditory canal anomaly, temporal bone malformation, and hearing levels in patients with microtia

June 20, 2017  |  Kun Chen, MS; Liu Liu, MS; Runjie Shi, MD; Peihua Wang, MD; Dong Chen, MD; Hua Xiao, MD

Abstract

We conducted a retrospective study to evaluate the relationship between external auditory canal (EAC) anomaly, temporal bone abnormality, and hearing levels using objective scoring systems in Chinese patients with microtia. The study population consisted of 106 ears of 94...

How successful is the fitting of digital hearing aids? Implications for the allocation of resources within national health systems

March 24, 2017  |  Petros V. Vlastarakos, MD, MSc, PhD; Alastair I. Cameron, BA (Hons), PGDip, MSc; Thomas P. Nikolopoulos, MD, DM, PhD

Abstract

We conducted a retrospective study to determine the success rate of initial fittings in digital hearing aid (DHA) users. We also addressed the implications of national health systems' continuing to provide access to these devices. We identified 1,597 consecutively presenting...

Glomus jugulare manifesting as angiogenesis of the external ear canal

March 24, 2017  |  Sei Y. Chung, BS; James K. Liu, MD, FACS; Richard Chan Woo Park, MD, FACS; Robert W. Jyung, MD

On otoscopic examination, one will usually see a red-blue vascular mass behind the tympanic membrane, often described as a “rising sun” emanating from the hypotympanum.

Analysis of caloric test responses in sudden hearing loss

February 20, 2017  |  Cheng-Ping Shih, MD; Yu-Ching Chou, PhD; Hsin-Chien Chen, MD, PhD; Jih-Chin Lee, MD; Yueng-Hsiang Chu, MD, PhD; Chih-Hung Wang, MD, PhD

Abstract

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is characterized by a rapid-onset hearing loss that develops within 3 days. Vertigo may also be present. We conducted a retrospective study to investigate whether the severity of a loss of caloric function is associated with the initial hearing...
