A comparison of language achievement in children with cochlear implants and children using hearing aids. (1/432)

English language achievement of 29 prelingually deaf children with 3 or more years of cochlear implant (CI) experience was compared to the achievement levels of prelingually deaf children who did not have such CI experience. Language achievement was measured by the Rhode Island Test of Language Structure (RITLS), a measure of signed and spoken sentence comprehension, and the Index of Productive Syntax (IPSyn), a measure of expressive (signed and spoken) English grammar. When the CI users were compared with their deaf age mates who contributed to the norms of the RITLS, it was found that CI users achieved significantly better scores. Likewise, we found that CI users performed better than 29 deaf children who used hearing aids (HAs) with respect to English grammar achievement as indexed by the IPSyn. Additionally, we found that chronological age highly correlated with IPSyn levels only among the non-CI users, whereas length of CI experience was significantly correlated with IPSyn scores for CI users. Finally, clear differences between those with and without CI experience were found by 2 years of post-implant experience. These data provide evidence that children who receive CIs benefit in the form of improved English language comprehension and production.  (+info)

Comparison of three-dimensional visualization techniques for depicting the scala vestibuli and scala tympani of the cochlea by using high-resolution MR imaging. (2/432)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cochlear implantation requires introduction of a stimulating electrode array into the scala vestibuli or scala tympani. Although these structures can be separately identified on many high-resolution scans, it is often difficult to ascertain whether these channels are patent throughout their length. The aim of this study was to determine whether an optimized combination of an imaging protocol and a visualization technique allows routine 3D rendering of the scala vestibuli and scala tympani. METHODS: A submillimeter T2 fast spin-echo imaging sequence was designed to optimize the performance of 3D visualization methods. The spatial resolution was determined experimentally using primary images and 3D surface and volume renderings from eight healthy subjects. These data were used to develop the imaging sequence and to compare the quality and signal-to-noise dependency of four data visualization algorithms: maximum intensity projection, ray casting with transparent voxels, ray casting with opaque voxels, and isosurface rendering. The ability of these methods to produce 3D renderings of the scala tympani and scala vestibuli was also examined. The imaging technique was used in five patients with sensorineural deafness. RESULTS: Visualization techniques produced optimal results in combination with an isotropic volume imaging sequence. Clinicians preferred the isosurface-rendered images to other 3D visualizations. Both isosurface and ray casting displayed the scala vestibuli and scala tympani throughout their length. Abnormalities were shown in three patients, and in one of these, a focal occlusion of the scala tympani was confirmed at surgery. CONCLUSION: Three-dimensional images of the scala vestibuli and scala tympani can be routinely produced. The combination of an MR sequence optimized for use with isosurface rendering or ray-casting algorithms can produce 3D images with greater spatial resolution and anatomic detail than has been possible previously.  (+info)

Cochlear implantations in Northern Ireland: an overview of the first five years. (3/432)

During the last few years cochlear implantation (CI) has made remarkable progress, developing from a mere research tool to a viable clinical application. The Centre for CI in the Northern Ireland was established in 1992 and has since been a provider of this new technology for rehabilitation of profoundly deaf patients in the region. Although individual performance with a cochlear implant cannot be predicted accurately, the overall success of CI can no longer be denied. Seventy one patients, 37 adults and 34 children, have received implants over the first five years of the Northern Ireland cochlear implant programme, which is located at the Belfast City Hospital. The complication rates and the post-implantation outcome of this centre compare favourably with other major centres which undertake the procedure. This paper aims to highlight the patient selection criteria, surgery, post-CI outcome, clinical and research developments within our centre, and future prospects of this recent modality of treatment.  (+info)

Prevalence of mitochondrial gene mutations among hearing impaired patients. (4/432)

The frequency of three mitochondrial point mutations, 1555A-->G, 3243A-->G, and 7445A-->G, known to be associated with hearing impairment, was examined using restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis in two Japanese groups: (1) 319 unrelated SNHL outpatients (including 21 with aminoglycoside antibiotic injection history), and (2) 140 cochlear implantation patients (including 22 with aminoglycoside induced hearing loss). Approximately 3% of the outpatients and 10% of the cochlear implantation patients had the 1555A-->G mutation. The frequency was higher in the patients with a history of aminoglycoside injection (outpatient group 33%, cochlear implantation group 59%). One outpatient (0.314%) had the 3243A-->G mutation, but no outpatients had the 7445A-->G mutation and neither were found in the cochlear implantation group. The significance of the 1555A-->G mutation, the most prevalent mitochondrial mutation found in this study of a hearing impaired population in Japan, among subjects with specific backgrounds, such as aminoglycoside induced hearing loss, is evident.  (+info)

Functional plasticity of language-related brain areas after cochlear implantation. (5/432)

Using PET, the cerebral network engaged by heard language processing in normal hearing subjects was compared with that in patients who received a cochlear implant after a period of profound deafness. The experimental conditions were words, syllables and environmental sounds, each controlled by a noise baseline. Four categories of effect were observed: (i) regions that were recruited by patients and controls under identical task conditions: the left and right superior temporal cortices and the left insula were activated in both groups in all conditions; (ii) new regions, which were recruited by patients only: the left dorsal occipital cortex showed systematic activation in all conditions versus noise baselines; (iii) regions that were recruited by both groups with a different functional specificity; e.g. Wernicke's area responded specifically to speech sounds in controls but was not specialized in patients; and (iv) regions that were activated in one group more than the other: the precuneus and parahippocampal gyrus (patients more than controls) and the left inferior frontal, left posterior inferior temporal and left and right temporoparietal junction regions (controls more than patients). These data provide evidence for altered functional specificity of the superior temporal cortex, flexible recruitment of brain regions located within and outside the classical language areas and automatic contribution of visual regions to sound recognition in implant patients.  (+info)

Use of audiovisual information in speech perception by prelingually deaf children with cochlear implants: a first report. (6/432)

OBJECTIVE: Although there has been a great deal of recent empirical work and new theoretical interest in audiovisual speech perception in both normal-hearing and hearing-impaired adults, relatively little is known about the development of these abilities and skills in deaf children with cochlear implants. This study examined how prelingually deafened children combine visual information available in the talker's face with auditory speech cues provided by their cochlear implants to enhance spoken language comprehension. DESIGN: Twenty-seven hearing-impaired children who use cochlear implants identified spoken sentences presented under auditory-alone and audiovisual conditions. Five additional measures of spoken word recognition performance were used to assess auditory-alone speech perception skills. A measure of speech intelligibility was also obtained to assess the speech production abilities of these children. RESULTS: A measure of audiovisual gain, "Ra," was computed using sentence recognition scores in auditory-alone and audiovisual conditions. Another measure of audiovisual gain, "Rv," was computed using scores in visual-alone and audiovisual conditions. The results indicated that children who were better at recognizing isolated spoken words through listening alone were also better at combining the complementary sensory information about speech articulation available under audiovisual stimulation. In addition, we found that children who received more benefit from audiovisual presentation also produced more intelligible speech, suggesting a close link between speech perception and production and a common underlying linguistic basis for audiovisual enhancement effects. Finally, an examination of the distribution of children enrolled in Oral Communication (OC) and Total Communication (TC) indicated that OC children tended to score higher on measures of audiovisual gain, spoken word recognition, and speech intelligibility. CONCLUSIONS: The relationships observed between auditory-alone speech perception, audiovisual benefit, and speech intelligibility indicate that these abilities are not based on independent language skills, but instead reflect a common source of linguistic knowledge, used in both perception and production, that is based on the dynamic, articulatory motions of the vocal tract. The effects of communication mode demonstrate the important contribution of early sensory experience to perceptual development, specifically, language acquisition and the use of phonological processing skills. Intervention and treatment programs that aim to increase receptive and productive spoken language skills, therefore, may wish to emphasize the inherent cross-correlations that exist between auditory and visual sources of information in speech perception.  (+info)

Cross-modal plasticity underpins language recovery after cochlear implantation. (7/432)

Postlingually deaf subjects learn the meaning of sounds after cochlear implantation by forming new associations between sounds and their sources. Implants generate coarse frequency responses, preventing place-coding fine enough to discriminate sounds with similar temporal characteristics, e.g., buck/duck. This limitation imposes a dependency on visual cues, e.g., lipreading. We hypothesized that cross-modal facilitation results from engagement of the visual cortex by purely auditory tasks. In four functional neuroimaging experiments, we show recruitment of early visual cortex (V1/V2) when cochlear implant users listen to sounds with eyes closed. Activity in visual cortex evolved in a stimulus-specific manner as a function of time from implantation reflecting experience-dependent adaptations in the postimplant phase.  (+info)

Some measures of verbal and spatial working memory in eight- and nine-year-old hearing-impaired children with cochlear implants. (8/432)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine working memory for sequences of auditory and visual stimuli in prelingually deafened pediatric cochlear implant users with at least 4 yr of device experience. DESIGN: Two groups of 8- and 9-yr-old children, 45 normal-hearing and 45 hearing-impaired users of cochlear implants, completed a novel working memory task requiring memory for sequences of either visual-spatial cues or visual-spatial cues paired with auditory signals. In each sequence, colored response buttons were illuminated either with or without simultaneous auditory presentation of verbal labels (color-names or digit-names). The child was required to reproduce each sequence by pressing the appropriate buttons on the response box. Sequence length was varied and a measure of memory span corresponding to the longest list length correctly reproduced under each set of presentation conditions was recorded. Additional children completed a modified task that eliminated the visual-spatial light cues but that still required reproduction of auditory color-name sequences using the same response box. Data from 37 pediatric cochlear implant users were collected using this modified task. RESULTS: The cochlear implant group obtained shorter span scores on average than the normal-hearing group, regardless of presentation format. The normal-hearing children also demonstrated a larger "redundancy gain" than children in the cochlear implant group-that is, the normal-hearing group displayed better memory for auditory-plus-lights sequences than for the lights-only sequences. Although the children with cochlear implants did not use the auditory signals as effectively as normal-hearing children when visual-spatial cues were also available, their performance on the modified memory task using only auditory cues showed that some of the children were capable of encoding auditory-only sequences at a level comparable with normal-hearing children. CONCLUSIONS: The finding of smaller redundancy gains from the addition of auditory cues to visual-spatial sequences in the cochlear implant group as compared with the normal-hearing group demonstrates differences in encoding or rehearsal strategies between these two groups of children. Differences in memory span between the two groups even on a visual-spatial memory task suggests that atypical working memory development irrespective of input modality may be present in this clinical population.  (+info)

This study reviews the cochlear histology from four hearing preservation cochlear implantation experiments conducted on 73 guinea pigs from our institution, and relates histopathological findings to residual hearing. All guinea pigs had normal hearing prior to surgery and underwent cochlear implantation via a cochleostomy with a silastic-platinum dummy electrode. Pure tone auditory brainstem response (ABR) thresholds from 2 to 32 kHz were recorded prior to surgery, and at one and four weeks postoperatively. The cochleae were then fixed in paraformaldehyde, decalcified, paraffin embedded, and mid-modiolar sections were prepared. The treatment groups were as follows: 1) Systemic dexamethasone, 0.2 mg/kg administered 1 h before implantation, 2) Local dexamethasone, 2% applied topically to the round window for 30 min prior to cochlear implantation, 3) Local n-acetyl cysteine, 200 μg applied topically to the round window for 30 min prior to implantation, 4) inoculation to keyhole-limpet hemocyanin ...

Robotic assistance in the context of lateral skull base surgery, particularly during cochlear implantation procedures, has been the subject of considerable research over the last decade. The use of robotics during these procedures has the potential to provide significant benefits to the patient by reducing invasiveness when gaining access to the cochlea, as well as reducing intracochlear trauma when performing a cochleostomy. Presented herein is preliminary work on the combination of two robotic systems for reducing invasiveness and trauma in cochlear implantation procedures. A robotic system for minimally invasive inner ear access was combined with a smart drilling tool for robust and safe cochleostomy; evaluation was completed on a single human cadaver specimen. Access to the middle ear was successfully achieved through the facial recess without damage to surrounding anatomical structures; cochleostomy was completed at the planned position with the endosteum remaining intact after drilling as ...
Cochlear Implantation: Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (COCHLEAR IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the COCHLEAR NERVE in the inner ear to create sound sensation in patients with residual nerve fibers.
Background. Cochlear implants have become an accepted and successful treatment for profound sensorineural deafness in both children and adults. Essential to the effective and efficient localized stimulation of the auditory nerves, is the position of the implant electrode array stimulating sites within the scala tympani (ST). However, the small size, delicate internal structures and helical shape of the cochlear chambers complicate the matter of precise positioning of the implant electrode array. The design, fabrication process, and in vitro testing of a fluid actuator to steer a thin-film electrode array is presented. The application chosen to show feasibility is for a cochlear implant, however, the actuator might be used for cortical electrode arrays, for example. Method of Approach. The actuator functions by a change of internal fluid pressure within one or more flattened and curled polymer microtubes, expanding the highly elliptical cross section of each tube thereby stiffening it and causing ...

0115]At decision block 312, if it is determined that the measured response is an ECR waveform, at step 318 the intracochlear electrode associated with the frequency of the tone that generated the response is identified. At step 320, the map of the cochlear stimulation system is adjusted by setting the T level for e(j), Te(j), for electrode e(j) to the current stimulation level used to generate the response, which is A. At step 322, the center frequency of e(j), fce(j), is removed from the set of frequencies that are to be included in the next configuration of the sound stimulation signal. At step 324, N is decremented to indicate that one less intracochlear electrode is left to be adjusted during the fitting. Decision block 326 checks to see if the last intracochlear electrode has been adjusted. If N is not 0, the next sound stimulation signal is configured at step 306. The process then continues at steps 308, 310 and decision block 312 as described above. If at decision block 326, N has reached ...

In a nutshell, PPPD is motion sensitivity triggered from the trauma of the cochlear implant surgery…..Im not going to mislead you, cochlear implant surgery is quite invasive and as a result, I developed this complex vestibular disorder where your brain becomes hypersensitive to your own movement as well as things moving around you (visual vertigo). I feel intense discomfort in places like supermarkets, moving vehicles or places that have busy patterned surfaces. If youve ever been on a cruise and get off the boat, but still have the feeling like youre on the boat, that is how I feel on a daily basis - a floating feeling. My head feels foggy and I lose my balance easily. I am told I can overcome this and holding on to hope that I ...

Cochlear implant technology is growing rapidly in Malaysia to assist patients with hearing problems especially among children. Cochlear implants may be beneficial for the speech development of children and help children attend normal schools. However, the success of cochlear implants depends on the detection and early intervention of children and efforts to habilitation / rehabilitation by therapists and parents.. The latest scenario in Malaysia, most users only use cochlear implant in one ear only. Therefore, various studies have been conducted to evaluate the benefits of cochlear implants. According to a study on the use of cochlear implant and its impact on the binaural processing for pediatric patients and adults showed that patients using bimodal fitting get better benefits than patients using cochlear implant or hearing aid in one ear only (Molly Justus, 2008).. ...
Objectives/Hypothesis: This study documents the importance of preserving residual low-frequency acoustic hearing as those with more residual hearing are selected for cochlear implantation. Surgical strategies used for hearing preservation with a short hybrid cochlear implant are outlined. The benefits of preserved residual low-frequency hearing, improved word understanding in noise, and music appreciation are described.. Study Design: Multicenter, prospective, single-subject design.. Methods: Records were reviewed of 21 individuals participating in an Food and Drug Administration (FDA) feasibility clinical trial who have received an Iowa/Nucleus 10 mm electrode. A second group of subjects receiving implants at the University of Iowa that have used the 10 mm device between 2 years and 6 months were also reviewed. Outcome measures included standardized tests of monosyllabic word understanding, spondees in noise, and common melody recognition.. Results: Low-frequency hearing was maintained in all ...
Children with profound deafness are at risk for serious reading difficulties. Multiple factors affect their development of reading skills, including use of cochlear implants. Further, multiple factors influence the overall success that children experience with their cochlear implants. These factors include the age at which they receive an implant, method of communication, vocabulary skills, preoperative residual hearing, and socioeconomic status. Ninety-one children with prelingual and profound hearing impairments who received cochlear implants at varying ages participated in the study. Structural equation modeling confirmed that multiple factors affected young cochlear implant users reading comprehension skills and that there were significant associations between the predictors of reading comprehension. Pre-implant vocabulary had an indirect positive effect on reading through postimplant vocabulary, which had a direct positive effect on reading. Overall, children with stronger language skills ...
CONCLUSION: Psychosocial factors should be considered during cochlear implantation (CI). There were differences in psychosocial characteristics according to the etiology of deafness. The outcomes may be affected by psychosocial variables such as the severity of mental distress and social problems as well as duration of deafness. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the psychosocial characteristics of deaf people undergoing CI and to determine which psychosocial factors affect performance after CI. METHODS: A total of 289 subjects who underwent CI were enrolled. The participants were classified into prelingually deaf (pre-LD) and postlingually deaf groups (post-LD), including progressive and sudden deafness subgroups. The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) was administered before CI to measure psychosocial and emotional problems. To measure CI outcomes, speech perception ability was assessed by the open-set Korean version of the Central Institute of Deafness (K-CID) test and categories of auditory

Universal newborn hearing screening has allowed for the identification of severe to profound hearing loss at birth or within a few months thereafter. Because universal hearing screening programs have been and continue to be established throughout the United States, between 85% and 99% of newborns are being screened for hearing loss within 1 day of being born, with the remainder being tested within the first few months of life. This new population of hearing-impaired infants, who by virtue of the extent of their hearing losses are possible candidates for cochlear implantation, provides new opportunities and challenges.. Research over time has demonstrated that the early identification of significant hearing loss followed by intervention procedures, including hearing aid usage commencing during the first 6 months of life, significantly increases the level of language development, speech intelligibility, and emotional stability as compared with children with later identification and ...
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a heterogeneous disease of the connective tissue caused by a defective gene that is responsible for the production of collagen type I, leading to defective bone matrix and connective tissue. Hearing loss affects 35-60% of the patients and will progress to deafness in 2-11% of OI patients for whom cochlear implantation may become the only remaining treatment option. Three patients with OI were retrieved from the Nijmegen Cochlear Implant Centres database. Most of the specific observations in ear surgery on patients with OI, such as brittle scutum, sclerotic thickening of the cochlea, hyperplastic mucosa in the middle ear and persistent bleeding, were encountered in these 3 patients. In case 3, with severe deformities on the CT scan, misplacement of the electrode array into the horizontal semicircular canal occurred. In all 3 cases, programming was hindered by nonauditory stimulation. Even after reimplantation, nonauditory sensations lead to case 3 becoming a ...

TY - GEN. T1 - Modeling virtual channels in cochlear implant systems. AU - Choi, T.m.. AU - Lai, Wei Dian. PY - 2006/11/21. Y1 - 2006/11/21. N2 - Simultaneous electrical stimulation of neighboring electrodes generates channel interaction, which is generally undesirable. However, it is possible to create virtual channels or virtual electrodes by stimulating two neighboring electrodes in a suitable manner. In this paper, the ratio of the magnitude of voltage applied to two neighboring electrodes was adjusted according to: 4:0, 3:1, 2:2, 1:3, 0:4. Our model was created by coupling an Ineraid electrode array with a half turn of a human cochlea finite element model. The five different conditions generate five different activating function peaks along the Basilar membrane and between the electrodes, representing five different pitches as perceive by the cochlear implant users. The modeling result is consistent with experimental result.. AB - Simultaneous electrical stimulation of neighboring ...

by Susan Boswell These are often the first words spoken when a cochlear implant recipients processor is turned on. And they have been a rite of passage for more than 36,000 people around the world who have received cochlear implants over the last two decades. Technological advances have brought dramatic changes in candidacy criteria, opening the door for more people with severe and profound hearing losses to choose this option.. When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved a cochlear implant with a single electrode for adults in 1985 and for children in 1990, only those who were almost completely deaf and could only perceive vibrations with a hearing aid could qualify.. Today, children and adults who were not candidates just two years ago may well be considered as candidates. The age of pediatric candidates has dropped from 2 years to as young as 12 months, and eligibility criteria for adults continue to expand.. A growing body of research has demonstrated that children who ...
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the rate of progress in the 2nd implanted ear as it relates to the 1st implanted ear and to bilateral performance in adult sequential cochlear implant recipients. In addition, this study aimed to identify factors that contribute to patient outcomes. Method: The authors performed a prospective longitudinal study in 21 adults who received bilateral sequential cochlear implants. Testing occurred at 6 intervals: prebilateral through 12 months postbilateral implantation. Measures evaluated speech recognition in quiet and noise, localization, and perceived benefit. Results: Second ear performance was similar to 1st ear performance by 6 months postbilateral implantation. Bilateral performance was generally superior to either ear alone; however, participants with shorter 2nd ear length of deafness (|20 years) had more rapid early improvement and better overall outcomes than those with longer 2nd ear length of deafness (|30 years).

What if you, a veteran of the latest war, and have lost all hearing due to something not related to the service, like a preference for loud music?. If you or a family member have trouble hearing and it has been determined that you would not be aided by a hearing aid, you may be a candidate for a Cochlear Implant.. A Cochlear Implant is a prosthetic device the bypasses the damaged part of the ear and provides some degree of hearing by stimulating the nerves. The implant has proven successful in restoring a degree of hearing since it was first approved by the FDA two decades ago. Originally there was only one supplier and one version. Over the years a number of companies have come up with new models.. The Cochlear Implant has been proven to restore some degree of hearing to those who are totally deaf and do not have complicating factors that affect the middle ear..

It is well accepted that bilateral input can significantly improve speech understanding in noise for patients with cochlear implants. For cochlear implant (CI) recipients who have a CI on only one side, two sided input can be provided with simultaneous use of a hearing aid (HA) or a CROS device on the opposite side. The decision about which device to use depends on the level of residual hearing a recipient has in non CI-implanted ear, and more specifically what level of useable residual hearing s/he has. Access to useable low frequency hearing can not only improve speech understanding in noise, it can also improve sound quality, pitch perception and music perception.. Clinicians can reasonably predict that a recipient with hearing thresholds better than 60 dB HL at low frequencies (below 750 Hz) would benefit from amplification. For recipients with no measurable acoustic hearing in the contralateral ear, CROS would be a reasonable option, especially if bilateral implantation is not feasible or ...

Annual lecture established in 1994 in commemoration of the work of Graham Fraser. Integrated into the programme of the Otology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine 1996 - 2014. Hosted by the British Cochlear Implant Group within their annual conference from 2015.
Bilateral cochlear implantation is implantation on both sides, or the use of two cochlear implants. The advantages of bilateral hearing implants for the development of children with hearing loss have been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies.
OBJECTIVES: Monopolar stimulation of the most apical electrode produces the lowest pitch sensation in cochlear implants clinically. A phantom electrode that uses out-of-phase electrical stimulation between the most apical and the neighboring basal electrode can produce a lower pitch sensation than that associated with the most apical electrode. However, because of the absence of contacts beyond the apical tip of the array, the ability to assess the spread of electrical excitation associated with phantom stimulation is limited in the typical cochlear implant subject with no residual hearing. In the present study, the spread of electrical excitation associated with monopolar and phantom stimulation of the most apical electrode was assessed using electrical masking of acoustic thresholds in cochlear implant subjects with residual, low-frequency, acoustic hearing. DESIGN: Eight subjects with an Advanced Bionics cochlear implant and residual hearing in the implanted ear participated in this study ...

New speech-to-touch sensory substitution device can improve hearing in hearing-impaired cochlear implant patients without any training, reveals a new study.
A cochlear implant (CI) is an electronic device that can provide a sense of hearing to deaf or profoundly hearing impaired listeners by directly activating auditory nerve fibers. Optimal auditory performance with a CI requires subject-specific adjustments of several system parameters, i.e. the CI needs to be fitted to the individual user. A large number of system parameters is available to the clinician in the fitting software. For some of these parameters it is essential that they are individualized prior to switching on the device, since they ensure that sounds are audible without making sounds uncomfortably loud. For other parameters subject-specific optimization is less essential and a one-size-fits-all approach of using default settings results in good performance for the majority of CI users. However, these default settings may not always result in optimal settings for individual CI users and subject-specific fine-tuning of these parameter settings may further improve performance and/or ...

  • Children with inner ear malformations, such as incomplete partition type II and large vestibular aqueduct syndrome, have shown good speech performance with cochlear implant (CI) use, and they are now considered to be good candidates for CIs [3-6]. (
  • Vestibular problems after cochlear implantation (CI) were explored by categorizing them according to clinical course and changes in objective vestibular function. (
  • Careful review of vestibular status is an important step, especially when deciding implantation in the only vestibular functioning ear or bilateral implantation. (
  • Preoperative high-resolution computed tomography of the temporal bones showed bilateral inner ear malformations of both the cochlear and vestibular labyrinth, conditions consistent with bilateral Mondini deformity ( 5 ). (
  • The inner ear is completely encased in bone and consists of the cochlear-vestibular apparatus and its associated nerves. (
  • The cochlear-vestibular apparatus is a complex structure arranged in a complex yet elegant spatial orientation. (
  • however, a substantial number of treated patients were found to develop irreversible cochlear and vestibular dysfunction. (
  • Of all ototoxic drugs, the aminoglycosides are the most vestibulotoxic, although they vary greatly in their differential effects on the vestibular and cochlear systems. (
  • The ESPCI is one of the largest international events focusing on pediatric cochlear implantation that has gained reputation as a leading meeting in the field of auditory implants in children. (
  • Thirty children, who shifted immediately to cochlear implantation, and were enrolled in auditory training and language therapy for one year. (
  • Objective: To evaluate long-term auditory outcomes with the continuous use of cochlear implants (CIs) in pediatric patients with cochlear nerve deficiencies (CNDs). (
  • 2012) reported that only four of nine children with CND who underwent cochlear implantation showed significant improvements in pure-tone average (PTA) thresholds with CIs but none achieved sufficient speech or perception abilities for oral communication, suggesting that the auditory benefits of CIs for children with CND are limited [9]. (
  • Other studies, however, reported that children with CNDs showed exceptionally good auditory improvements after cochlear implantation [11, 12]. (
  • Cochlear implants are electronic devices that convert acoustic sounds into electrical pulses which stimulate the auditory nerve directly. (
  • All electrodes entered the cochlear with good freefield thresholds and auditory ability results. (
  • To demonstrate the efficacy of cochlear implants (CI) in post-lingual adults, including surgical and auditory outcomes based on a 25-year experience at a tertiary referral hospital. (
  • Cochlear implants performed, in our institute, on post-lingual adults resulted in significant improvements in auditory performance, including PTA, SRT, and WRS values with low complication rates. (
  • CONCLUSIONS: Cochlear impairment with preserved auditory pathways can be responsible for profound SNHL in HIV-infected patients. (
  • The various risk factors that affect the auditory gain and speech perception eitheracting singly or in combination and the statistical analysis of the present study showed are the age at implantation, duration ofauditory deprivation, and the residual hearing which have a direct impact on the outcome over a period of 1 year. (
  • The way a person is selected for cochlear implants is changing as the understanding of the brain's hearing (auditory) pathways improves and the technology changes. (
  • Unlike hearing aids, which amplify sound, a cochlear implant bypasses damaged portions of the ear to deliver sound signals to the hearing (auditory) nerve. (
  • Good auditory responses were obtained at 14 days after implantation. (
  • Methods and preliminary outcomes of pediatric auditory brainstem implantation. (
  • Anesthesia mumps resulting in temporary facial nerve paralysis after the auditory brainstem implantation in a 3-year-old child. (
  • One year after cochlear implantation, the patient was assessed by categories of auditory perception (CAP) and speech intelligibility rating (SIR) tests. (
  • One year after cochlear implant SIR and categories of auditory perception in these patients are significantly lower than children without dysmorphic feature, but cochlear implant will help these children. (
  • I invite you to take part in the Fifth St. Petersburg course on otosurgery and auditory implantation with expanded dissection of the temporal bone and lateral base of the skull. (
  • In 2017, the first practical course on surgery and auditory implantation with international participation was held here, and in 2019 the second St. Petersburg practical course on otosurgery and auditory implantation was held. (
  • 1. What are the binaural benefits of providing a cochlear implant for single-sided deafness? (
  • In order to preserve residual hearing in patients with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) who receive a cochlear implant (CI), insertion trauma to the delicate structures of the cochlea needs to be minimized. (
  • Cochlear implantation by way of a cochleostomy or round window approach, using different electrode array types, is the standard medical care for patients with severe to profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, as it is a relative simple and low-risk procedure that greatly benefits patients. (
  • In people with severe sensorineural hearing loss or deafness, hearing can be (partially) restored with a cochlear implant (CI). (
  • Consequently, speech production can improve over time and enters the normal rang when traditional amplification Devices (hearing aids) are unable to restore access to the full range of phonemic components of speech, a cochlear implant (CI) is a widely used treatment option for children with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). (
  • Cochlear implantation is an effective habilitative option for children with both pre- and post-lingual sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). (
  • A 63-year-old man, affected by bilateral Menière disease, with bilateral severe sensorineural hearing loss, high recruitment and speech discrimination score for bysillabic words under 40%, underwent cochlear implant candidacy evaluation protocol at our center. (
  • Background: Cochlear Implantation (CI) has become an important modality of treatment for children with severe to profoundpre-lingual sensorineural hearing loss who do not benefit from hearing aids (HAs). (
  • Cochlear implantation is the standard treatment for children and adults affected by severe and severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss. (
  • Recently, treatment of children with severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) has been influenced by diagnostic improvements and technological treatment advances, specifically new cochlear implant prospects. (
  • These aberrations can impede electrode implantation via a routine RW approach and increase the risk of iatrogenic FN injury [ 5 ]. (
  • Conclusion: MED-EL implantation can be performed using small incisions without suture fixation of the receiver and its electrode. (
  • Herein, we report a rare complication involving injury to the carotid canal that was caused by an electrode during cochlear implantation in a child. (
  • Most meningitis cases were associated with an implant with a positioner, a silastic wedge inserted next to the implanted electrode in the cochlea to position the electrode closer to the cochlear nerve endings and thus facilitate electrical signal transmission. (
  • Patients: One patient was a 3-year-old-girl who had cochlear and cochleovestibular nerve aplasia on the left side and incomplete partition on the other side. (
  • Conclusion: Except cochlear or cochleovestibular nerve agenesis, inner ear malformations cannot be accepted as a contraindication for cochlear implantation. (
  • However, cochlear implantation for children with cochlear nerve deficiencies (CNDs) remain controversial. (
  • in 1997 [7], is defined as either an absent or a small cochlear nerve (CN) according to radiographical findings, generally using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (
  • At this time, the speech processor is programmed and activated, which causes the internal device to stimulate the cochlear nerve in response to sounds. (
  • Cochlear implantation (CI) has emerged as a proper method of acoustic rehabilitation, provided that the cochlear nerve remains intact. (
  • Implantation might be difficult in patients with inner and middle ear anomalies, in some cases because of not achieving adequate exposure to the RW, with a related higher risk of complications such as facial nerve injury. (
  • This energy can then be used to stimulate the cochlear nerve (the nerve for hearing), sending "sound" signals to the brain. (
  • It is responsible for translating mechanical vibrations into electrical impulses and sending them to the brain through the cochlear nerve. (
  • Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device ( COCHLEAR IMPLANTS ) with electrodes to the COCHLEAR NERVE in the inner ear to create sound sensation in patients with residual nerve fibers. (
  • The absence of the CN has been assumed to be a contraindication for cochlear implantation because the connection between the cochlea and the brainstem nuclei is lacking in these cases. (
  • It takes time and training to learn to interpret the signals received from a cochlear implant. (
  • The answer to our prayers was early cochlear implantation, but we had to fight for it. (
  • Our early cochlear implantation journey began when Parker was a month old. (
  • I learned more than I could have ever imagined during this journey, and I'm excited to share these five steps that made early cochlear implantation possible. (
  • METHODS: A retrospective chart review of a HIV type 1-seropositive profoundly deafened patient who underwent cochlear implantation. (
  • abstract = "The aim of this study is to describe an alternative technique to secure the receiver-stimulator of the cochlear implant to the skull with a tailored flap of periosteum. (
  • There are many different types of cochlear implants. (
  • Some types of cochlear implants have one external unit that has a speech processor, microphone and transmitter combined (lower left), while others have these as separate external parts (upper left and on right). (
  • People with cochlear implants are more likely to get bacterial meningitis than people without cochlear implants. (
  • The bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) causes most cases of meningitis in people with cochlear implants. (
  • There is no evidence people with cochlear implants are more likely to get Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) meningitis or meningococcal meningitis than people who do not have cochlear implants. (
  • Within 3 to 6 months of use, most people with cochlear implants make considerable gains in understanding speech. (
  • child's audiologist must prove that they receive limited benefit from their hearing aids before referring them as a candidate for cochlear implants. (
  • Anyone who can hear well enough with hearing aids is not a good candidate for cochlear implants. (
  • In addition, some people who are candidates for cochlear implants have anatomic factors that may increase their risk for meningitis. (
  • Due to their increased risk, CDC recommends pneumococcal vaccination for people who have or are candidates for cochlear implants. (
  • CDC recommends a pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13 or PCV15 for children and PCV15 or PCV20 for adults) for people who have or are candidates for cochlear implants. (
  • CDC also recommends pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) for some people 2 years and older who have or are candidates for cochlear implants. (
