General and specific language growth was evaluated in 10 children who had received the CLARION Multi-Strategy Cochlear Implant during the clinical trial. The mean age at implantation was 37 months, and the children were followed for 18 months thereafter. Language comprehension and use were assessed with the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, the Reynell(More)
The electrical acoustic reflex threshold (EART) has been shown to be a reliable estimate of behavioral comfort levels in both child and adult cochlear implant patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential for using EARTs for programming the Nucleus cochlear implant. EARTs and behavioral comfort levels were obtained from 7 adult(More)
RATIONALE In the setting of open access endoscopy, the recognition of suggestive endoscopic features in the duodenum can select patients with probability of celiac disease (CD). This could add to the current efforts to increase the diagnostic rate of this disease. AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of these markers for CD in(More)
The paper integrates two important areas of literature, the Chandler model of corporate hierarchy and the discrete alternative models of small firm flexible specialization, in order to explore long-run processes of structural and strategic change. To achieve synthesis, resource based view (RBV) and resource dependency theories are combined to explain the(More)
This case study will review the performance of a 7-year-old female who was implanted at the age of 3 years 9 months with a Nucleus 22 channel device. This child was deafened from pneumococcal meningis at the age of 8 months and was placed in an early intervention program which uses simultaneous communication (i.e. speech with sign language). The teaching(More)
Marie represents a unique case in the population of cochlear implant users, in that she is from a family of deaf individuals. Her auditory perceptual performance after 2 years of implant use is commensurate with that of other children of similar ages and durations of deafness. Although her speech production performance is also not atypical, the special(More)
