AIMS The purpose of the study was to define boundaries between endocochlear hearing loss and auditory neuropathy in children with congenital profound hearing loss and positive otoacoustic emissions. PATIENT A child presented with bilateral profound hearing loss, which was confirmed by the absence of evoked auditory potentials at 110 dB and with conserved(More)
The effects of long-term antiepileptic combined therapy with phenobarbitone (PB) and carbamazepine (CBZ) on the major endocrine functions were evaluated in a selected group of 15 young males with partial epilepsy. The plasma basal levels of triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), free thyroxine (FT4), thyrotropin (TSH), cortisol (CO),(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to present the results of cochlear implantation in case of deafness involving mutations in the OTOF gene. This form of deafness is characterized by the presence of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAE). In cases of profound deafness with preserved TEOAE, two main etiologies should be considered: either an(More)
Serum calcitonin (CT) and prolactin (PRL) levels were determined in 21 heroin addicts in hospital treatment with methadone. After withdrawal of heroin the values of CT 112.4 +/- 62.9 pg/ml, and PRL 19.1 +/- 10.1 ng/ml were both significantly higher (P less than 0.001) than in normal controls (62.2 +/- 43.8 pg/ml and 9.1 +/- 3.5 ng/ml, respectively). After(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To assess the possibilities of restoring laryngeal sensation in an animal model by way of the internal branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (ibSLN) bilateral section and anastomosis to itself or to transposition nerves (i.e., lingual, glossopharyngeal, and great auricular nerves). STUDY DESIGN Prospective study using New Zealand(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the diagnostic approach to severe or profound bilateral postmeningitic deafness and to propose management guidelines. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective review of five patients (two adolescents and three infants) with rapidly progressive severe bilateral deafness following an episode of meningitis managed between 2004 and 2010.(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to review the different types of genetic deafness. METHODS We describe syndromic and isolated sensorineural deafness and transmission deafness. RESULTS Genetic sensorineural syndromic deafness represents 30% of cases of genetic deafness. A frequent cause is Pendred syndrome, which associates congenital sensorineural(More)
