The objective of this study is to compare pure tone audiometry and auditory steady-state response (ASSR) thresholds in normal hearing (NH) subjects and subjects with hearing loss. This study involved 23 NH adults and 38 adults with hearing loss (HI). After detection of behavioral thresholds (BHT) with pure tone audiometry, each subject was tested for ASSR(More)
OBJECTIVE To define a technique for the practical use of a 16-gauge peripheral venous catheter as an insulated aspiration cautery in endoscopic ear surgery. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case review. SETTING Tertiary referral center. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 16-gauge intravenous catheter was prepared as a cauterization instrument with aspiration. After(More)
Vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP), short-latency electromyographic responses elicited by acoustic stimuli, evaluate the function of vestibulocollic reflex and may give information about brainstem function. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the potential contribution of VEMP to the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS). Fifty patients(More)
Pharyngeal and esophageal perforations are rare during cervical spine surgery but can cause significant morbidity. Pharyngeal or eosephageal perforations can occur by several mechanisms and the management of pharyngeal or eosephageal perforation's treatment may become difficult. We report a 41-year-old paraplegic man with an interscapular pharyngocutaneous(More)
The following study has been carried out to compare the effectiveness of logon and tone burst acoustic stimulation to elicit vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) responses. The methods and the subjects include 31 healthy adult volunteers (62 ears) who were enrolled in this study. Two different acoustic stimuli, logon (L-VEMP) and tone burst (T-VEMP),(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) between two different methods, head rotation (HR) with unilateral recording and head elevation (HE) with bilateral simultaneous recording. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-eight healthy children (56 ears) were involved in the study. The subjects were tested in two different positions: head(More)
