Auditory Brain Stem Implantation: Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (AUDITORY BRAIN STEM IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than to the inner ear as in COCHLEAR IMPLANTATION.Auditory Brain Stem Implants: Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.Brain Stem: The part of the brain that connects the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES with the SPINAL CORD. It consists of the MESENCEPHALON; PONS; and MEDULLA OBLONGATA.Evoked Potentials, Auditory, Brain Stem: Electrical waves in the CEREBRAL CORTEX generated by BRAIN STEM structures in response to auditory click stimuli. These are found to be abnormal in many patients with CEREBELLOPONTINE ANGLE lesions, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, or other DEMYELINATING DISEASES.Cochlear Nerve: The cochlear part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The cochlear nerve fibers originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project peripherally to cochlear hair cells and centrally to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS) of the BRAIN STEM. They mediate the sense of hearing.Auditory Pathways: NEURAL PATHWAYS and connections within the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, beginning at the hair cells of the ORGAN OF CORTI, continuing along the eighth cranial nerve, and terminating at the AUDITORY CORTEX.

Cochlear implants and brain stem implants. (1/4)

This chapter describes the development of two implantable prosthetic neurostimulators which, in the last 20 years, have revolutionised the management of severe-to-profound sensorineural deafness. We have witnessed their rapid evolution from the realms of esoteric laboratory abstraction, with many critics and little perceived clinical use, to a routine treatment which is safe, effective and, indeed, cost effective. It is one of the great triumphs of biomedical and surgical collaboration, and is without any doubt the greatest ever advance in the treatment of deafness.  (+info)

CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS OF SIGMOID COLON 1. Colonic aganglionosis (Hirschsprung disease). It is caused by the arrest of the caudal migration of neural crest cells. The hallmark is the absence of ganglionic cells in the myenteric and sub-mucosal plexuses, most commonly in the sigmoid colon and rectum, resulting in a narrow segment of colon (i.e., the colon fails to relax). Although the ganglionic cells are absent, there is a proliferation of hypertrophied nerve fiber bundles. The most characteristic functional finding is the failure of the internal anal sphincter to relax following rectal distention (i.e., abnormal rectoanal reflex). Mutations of the RET proto-oncogene (chromosome 10q.11.2) have been associated with Hirschsprung disease. Clinical findings include a distended abdomen, inability to pass meconium, gushing of fecal material upon a rectal digital exam, fecal retention, and a loss of peristalsis in the colon segment distal to the normal innervated colon. The barium radiograph shows a ...

Beyond the influences of other cytokines on EPO effects, new and surprising information on EPO should also be taken into consideration. For example, the enzyme DPP4 (CD26), which is present on the surface of many cell types and in soluble form in the circulation, truncates chemokines such as stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1/CXCL12), and changes their biological activity (Christopherson et al., 2002, 2004). DPP4 has similar effects on several CSFs, including EPO, truncating the protein at the N terminus-penultimate alanine or proline. Unlike full-length SDF-1, DPP4-truncated SDF-1 is inactive as a chemotactic molecule and survival factor in vitro (Christopherson et al., 2002; Broxmeyer et al., 2012) and as a homing molecule in vivo (Christopherson et al., 2004), and can block the activity of full-length SDF-1. These effects are counteracted by inhibition of DPP4 by specific peptides (Diprotin A [ILE-PRO-ILE] or Val-Pyr) or a small molecule (sitagliptin). Similarly, DPP4 truncates EPO into a ...

The administration of glucocorticosteroids results in a wide range of effects on inflammatory and immunologically mediated disease processes. Glucocorticosteroids cause neutrophilic leukocytosis together with eosinopenia, monocytopenia, and lymphocytopenia. A principal mechanism whereby corticosteroids suppress inflammation is their impeding the access of neutrophils and monocytes to an inflammatory site. Granulocyte function is relatively refractory, whereas monocyte-macrophage function seems to be particularly sensitive to corticosteroids. Corticosteroid administration causes a transient lymphocytopenia of all detectable lymphocyte subpopulations, particularly the recirculating thymus-derived lymphocyte. The mechanism of this lymphocytopenia is probably a redistribution of circulating cells to other body compartments. There is considerable disagreement about the direct effects of corticosteroid administration on human lymphocyte function. The corticosteroid regimen should be adjusted to attain ...

Introduction: The complexity of the retina is a challenge to the design of neuroprosthetic devices. It is now clear that the neural retina is not a passive bystander in retinal degenerations (RDs) and that extensive remodeling occurs on tissue, cellular, synaptic and molecular scales (Jones et al. 2003 J Comp Neurol 464: 1-16, Marc et al. 2003 Prog Ret Eye Res 22: 607-655). All intervention schemata (genetic, cellular or bionic) for blinding diseases will have to address the ongoing processes of neuronal death, gene expression revision, neuronal rewiring, neuronal migration, and the formation new glial barriers. I will review the nature and scope of retinal remodeling, focusing on critical rewiring phenomena that may represent the greatest challenge to artificial vision. Indeed prosthetics may be the essential tools with which to repattern retinal circuits.. Methods: We have used computational molecular phenotyping (CMP) to screen over twenty RD models, comprehensively tracking all cell types. ...
Between 50% and 75% of infants with moderate to profound bilateral SNHL have one or more specific risk factors (see "Clinical Considerations").5,6 Until recently, most newborn hearing screening programs in the United States focused on identifying and screening infants at risk for SNHL. However, these programs typically do not identify infants at risk for hearing loss due to failure to administer screening questionnaires or loss to follow-up, and they will miss affected infants who have no risk factors.. In the late 1990s, the development of rapid, low-cost screening tests made it feasible to implement screening programs for all newborns for congenital hearing loss during the birth hospitalization. Two types of tests are commonly used: otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) and auditory brainstem response (ABR). Typically, screening programs use a two-stage screening approach (either OAE repeated twice, OAE followed by ABR, or automated ABR repeated twice). Criteria for defining a "pass" or "fail" on the ...
Chaurasia and colleagues report an impressive ex vivo expansion of HSCs from human cord blood (CB) using cytokines and altering epigenetic modifications. The application of this protocol provides information that has potential for clinical consideration. The enhanced expansion of CB HSCs is a substantial advance over recent work from the Chaurasia and Hoffman group, in which ex vivo production of human erythroid progenitor cells from CB was promoted by chromatin modification. Moreover, this study takes advantage of information from the rapidly emerging, but not yet fully elucidated, field of epigenetics.. ...

In their population-based survey (1), Diep and colleagues report a higher incidence of a multidrug-resistant (MDR), community-associated (CA), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) clone USA300 infections in the ZIP code that includes the Castro district, compared with San Francisco overall (170 versus 26 cases/100,000 persons, respectively) during 2004-2005. We are concerned that this finding reflects, at least in part, ascertainment bias rather than a true difference in disease incidence. Diep and colleagues defined cases as positive MDR CA-MRSA USA300 clinical cultures other than nasal swabs. Clinical considerations determined whether cultures were performed. Because all infections might not have been cultured, Diep and colleagues state that they might have underestimated the true incidence. The magnitude of underestimation probably differed importantly among groups as a result of ascertainment bias. Bias likely stemmed from greater awareness of MRSA infections among gay men and ...

Pregnancy Exposure Registry There is a pregnancy exposure registry that monitors pregnancy outcomes in women exposed to asthma medications during pregnancy. For more information, contact the MotherToBaby Pregnancy Studies conducted by the Organization of Teratology Information Specialists at 1‑877-311-8972 or visit https://mothertobaby.org/ongoing-study/asthma/.. Risk Summary There are no randomized clinical studies of use of albuterol sulfate during pregnancy. Available data from epidemiological studies and postmarketing case reports of pregnancy outcomes following inhaled albuterol use do not consistently demonstrate a risk of major birth defects or miscarriage. There are, however, clinical considerations in pregnant women with asthma. (See Clinical Considerations.)

A new device called the Argus II has been implanted in over 50 patients, many of whom can now see color, movement and objects and researchers have even streamed braille patterns directly into a blind patients retina, allowing him to read four-letter words accurately and quickly with the ocular neuroprosthetic device.
Early detection of movement intention could possibly minimize the delays in the activation of neuroprosthetic devices. As yet, single trial analysis using non-invasive approaches for understanding such movement preparation remains a challenging task. We studied the feasibility of predicting movement directions in self-paced upper limb center-out reaching tasks, i.e., spontaneous movements executed without an external cue that can better reflect natural motor behavior in humans. We reported results of non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) recorded from mild stroke patients and able-bodied participants. Previous studies have shown that low frequency EEG oscillations are modulated by the intent to move and therefore, can be decoded prior to the movement execution. Motivated by these results, we investigated whether slow cortical potentials (SCPs) preceding movement onset can be used to classify reaching directions and evaluated the performance using 5-fold cross-validation. For able-bodied ...

Recent elegant research has raised the salient issue of altering traumatic memories and its treatment implications. Kindt et al1 suggest that if emotional memory could be weakened or even erased, then we might be able to eliminate the root of many psychiatric disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. In a similar vein, Schiller et al2 reported that fearful memories can be wiped out for at least a year using a drug-free technique. The prospect of erasing distressing memories is indeed compelling and has led to widespread media coverage.. However, this issue elicits important ethical and clinical considerations: first, would we want to erase trauma memories, and second, is it clinically helpful to erase such memories?. Loss of knowledge about the past or oneself may be ethically problematic, although reducing suffering clearly may take precedence.3 Our sense of self is constructed from autobiographical memories, and the authenticity of how they link and our trust in this narrative is ...

Methods: At our institution, intensive protocol optimization is performed for each protocol using a single scanner architecture. Once a protocol is optimized in both technical and clinical parameters, the protocol can be translated to other scanner architectures (both older and newer). Essential restraints on the translation process include the maximum clinically allowable scan time and the maximum tube output of the scanner. Successful translation can be done if scan parameters can be modified within these essential constraints. If this is not possible then compromises have to be made that can affect clinical performance. Mathematical relationships related to tube output and clinical considerations will be discussed that guide the transformation and any needed compromises ...

Movement is planned and coordinated by the brain and carried out by contracting muscles acting on specific joints. Motor commands initiated in the brain travel through descending pathways in the spinal cord to effector motor neurons before reaching target muscles. Damage to these pathways by spinal cord injury (SCI) can result in paralysis below the injury level. However, the planning and coordination centers of the brain, as well as peripheral nerves and the muscles that they act upon, remain functional. Neuroprosthetic devices can restore motor function following SCI by direct electrical stimulation of the neuromuscular system. Unfortunately, conventional neuroprosthetic techniques are limited by a myriad of factors that include, but are not limited to, a lack of characterization of non-linear input/output system dynamics, mechanical coupling, limited number of degrees of freedom, high power consumption, large device size, and rapid onset of muscle fatigue.

Initially, each Salmonella "species" was named according to clinical considerations,[23] e.g., Salmonella typhi-murium (mouse typhoid fever), S. cholerae-suis. After it was recognized that host specificity did not exist for many species, new strains (or serovars, short for serological variants) received species names according to the location at which the new strain was isolated. Later, molecular findings led to the hypothesis that Salmonella consisted of only one species,[24] S. enterica, and the serovars were classified into six groups,[25] two of which are medically relevant. As this now-formalized nomenclature[26][27] is not in harmony with the traditional usage familiar to specialists in microbiology and infectologists, the traditional nomenclature is common. Currently, there are two recognized species: S. enterica, and S. bongori. In 2005 a third species, Salmonella subterranean, was thought to be added, but this has since been ruled out and is seen as another serovar.[28] There are six ...

The type, timing and degree of surgery (if any) should be carefully made by a multidisciplinary team with experience in managing NF2, the lifelong implications of the condition, its treatments and the complications that may result from treatment. The cornerstone of care is in minimal interference, conservation of function and maintenance of quality of life.r Factors that should be considered in surgical decision making include tumour impact on the patient (such as degree of brain stem compression), size, location, growth rate, number of lesions, patients co-morbidities (such as degree of hearing loss in each ear), suitability for auditory rehabilitation (using a cochlear implant or auditory brain stem implant) or other treatment (e.g. stereotactic radiosurgery), and the possible complications that may arise from the surgery, such as loss of cochlear, vestibular, bulbar and facial nerve function.rrr. ...

First, we start with the pathogen in mind. Our PCR tests are designed with genus-level primers and verified by sequencing to provide the most sensitive and specific microbial DNA test result possible. This test design provides flexibility with the highest specificity possible for clinical consideration. For example, over 10 species of Bartonella spp. have been implicated in human illness, yet standard PCR assays target one species at a time and are only available for two of the most common species of infection. Other blood-borne pathogens, like Rickettsia spp, also benefit from a broad PCR testing strategy, as multiple species are associated with human illness.. Our Bartonella ePCR™ test is designed to overcome the limitations of traditional test methods for Bartonella spp. by combining a 1-week BAPGM enrichment culture with our genus-level PCR method to increase the sensitivity of Bartonella spp detection in patient samples. The ideal way to confirm a stealth infection, like Bartonella is by ...

Neuroprostheses, implantable or non-invasive ones, are promising techniques to enable paralyzed individuals with conditions, such as spinal cord injury or spina bifida (SB), to control their limbs voluntarily. Direct cortical control of invasive neuroprosthetic devices and robotic arms have recently become feasible for primates. However, little is known about designing non-invasive, closed-loop neuromuscular control strategies for neural prostheses. Our goal was to investigate if an artificial neural network-based (ANN-based) model for closed-loop-controlled neural prostheses could use neuromuscular activation recorded from individuals with impaired spinal cord to predict their end-point gait parameters (such as stride length and step width). We recruited 12 persons with SB (5 females and 7 males) and collected their neuromuscular activation and end-point gait parameters during overground walking. Our results show that the proposed ANN-based technique can achieve a highly accurate prediction ...

The field of BioMEMS is becoming increasingly important to neuroprosthetic technologies by enabling communication with neurons at ever smaller scales. Among the many challenges facing these technologies, perhaps the largest are maintaining biocompatibility and understanding the mechanical stability and interaction between neuroprosthetics and tissue. ❧ Retinal prosthetics in particular are at the forefront of these challenges. Their impact on society, however, cannot be understated. Restoring "sight" to those blinded by devastating retinal diseases is a true marvel of modern technology. In an effort to improve and ultimately restore even more capabilities to those impaired, a better understanding of the interface between these implants and the human body is required. This dissertation presents the development of a novel sensing paradigm utilizing electrochemically-based transduction technology that is leveraged for the measurement of pressure between Parylene-based epiretinal implants and ...
Patients with chronic ear infection where the drum and/or the small bones in the middle ear are damaged often have hearing loss, but difficulties in using a hearing aid fitted in the ear canal. Direct bone conduction through a vibrator attached to a skin-penetrating implant addresses these disadvantages.. In 1977, the first three patients were implanted with a bone-conduction hearing solution by Anders Tjellström at the Ear, Nose, and Throat Department at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden. A 4-mm-long titanium screw with a diameter of 3.75 mm was inserted in the bone behind the ear, and a bone conduction hearing aid was attached.. The term osseointegration was coined by Professor Brånemark. During animal studies, he found the bone tissue attached to the titanium implant without any soft tissue in between. He also showed an such an implant could take a heavy load. His definition of osseointegration was "direct contact between living bone and an implant that can take a ...

Parents of children with CHARGE should be encouraged to become IN CHARGE and very active advocates for their children in order to ensure that an educational program is made that will allow each child to reach their full potential. All children regardless of their final cognitive abilities will require special support in schools to ensure that they maximize their potentials and develop into the most productive people that they can be. In an educational setting all involved must be aware of the special needs a child with CHARGE may have. Teachers of children with CHARGE Syndrome have to be aware of all areas affected by the disease. Because CHARGE can affect the eyes, ears, and brain it is most important that all members of the educational team (teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing, teachers of the visually impaired, audiologists, pediatricians, parents, etc.) Taking each of these into account is vital to the success of the child and family in an educational setting. ...

A bone-anchored hearing aid (Baha) consists of a titanium implant located at the mastoid, and a sound processor connected with the implant. The sound processor delivers bone conducted stimuli to the cochlea, bypassing the outer and middle ear.. Some patients who are unable to wear or do not benefit from a conventional air-conduction hearing aid, are candidate for a Baha. Typically, these patients suffer from a conductive or a mixed hearing loss. Recently however, Bahas are also being recommended in patients with unilateral deafness. Sound coming from the deaf side is captured and transmitted through bone conduction to the normal inner ear. The overall benefit of a Baha is more difficult to assess in those patients.. Therefore, the goal of the current study is to examine the benefit of a Baha in patients with different audiological profiles (unilateral or bilateral conductive or mixed hearing loss, and unilateral deafness). Special attention will be given to predictive determinants of the ...

CHARGE association, or syndrome as it is now known, is a condition where a number of congenital malformations are non-randomly associated in a recognizable pattern. There are two sets of diagnostic criteria for CHARGE syndrome which are in common usage at present (Blake et al., 1998; Verloes, 2005). The etiology of CHARGE syndrome was unknown. We identified twin girls with CHARGE syndrome and a de novo apparently balanced chromosome translocation 46,XX,t(8;13)(q11.2;q22). By mapping the chromosome translocation breakpoints we found that the gene chromodomain-helicase-DNA-binding protein 7 (CHD7) located at 8q12 was disrupted in these girls. CHD7 has a genomic length of 188kb with 9000 coding bases over 37 exons. It has a putative function as a transcription factor which makes it a good candidate gene for a condition which affects multiple body systems. Concurrently with this study Vissers et al (2004) identified CHD7 as a cause of CHARGE syndrome. They found two individuals with CHARGE syndrome ...

Description: CHARGE syndrome was initially defined as a non-random association of anomalies (Coloboma, Heart defect, Atresia choanae, Retarded growth and development, Genital hypoplasia, Ear anomalies/deafness). In 1998, an expert group defined the major (the classical 4Cs: Choanal atresia, Coloboma, Characteristic ears and Cranial nerve anomalies) and minor criteria of CHARGE syndrome. Individuals with all four major characteristics or three major and three minor characteristics are highly likely to have CHARGE syndrome. In 2004 a Netherlands study (Vissers, LELM, et.al) found a gene (CHD7 on 8Q12) which was implicated in 2/3 of those tested. This gene is responsible for encoding a number of DNA protein which is esential when neural crest cells are being formed and migrating. A negative genetic test for changes in the CHD7 gene can still result in a diagnosis of CHARGE ...
