This cadaver study assessed the value of navigation in cochlear implant surgery. Cochlear implantation was simulated on a cadaver using a Stryker-Leibinger navigation system and a Nucleus 24 Contour implant. A conventional surgical strategy consisting of mastoidectomy, posterior tympanotomy, and cochleostomy was performed. The navigated surgical procedure(More)
BACKGROUND Methods of minimally invasive computer-assisted otologic surgery lag behind other fields. The reason seems to be the extremely small dimensions of the corridors between important structures in the temporal bone and the fact that these structures are encased in bony frameworks, are obscured before drilling, and are not movable. The extended facial(More)
The subject of tinnitus in the population extremes-children and the elderly-is ignored by the literature, probably because children do not complain of tinnitus spontaneously, whereas it is only one challenge among other major health problems in the elderly. A short review of the literature on this subject is presented. Presby tinnitus, defined as tinnitus(More)
The investigation of stability under bilateral acoustic stimulation was undertaken in an attempt to mimic the real-life conditions of noisy environment (e.g., industry, aviation). The Tullio phenomenon evaluated by computed dynamic posturography (CDP) under acoustic stimulation is reflected in postural unsteadiness, rather than in the classic nystagmus.(More)
Owing to its subjective nature, behavioral pure-tone audiometry often is an unreliable testing method in uncooperative subjects, and assessing the true hearing threshold becomes difficult. In such cases, objective tests are used for hearing-threshold determination (i.e., auditory brainstem evoked potentials [ABEP] and frequency-specific auditory evoked(More)
