OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To describe the natural history of primary inner ear schwannomas (PIES) and evaluate management outcomes and relationship between PIES location, clinical presentation, and time to diagnosis. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review and systematic review of the literature. METHODS Vestibular schwannoma confined to or arising from the(More)
Many anatomic structures of the middle and inner ear are not optimally depicted at computed tomography (CT) with image reconstruction in the standard axial and coronal planes. Recent advances in multidetector CT, including the development of scanners with 32 detector rows, allow the acquisition of isotropic voxels that can be reconstructed in any plane of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the disease manifestations and clinical course of patients affected by Cogan syndrome (a syndrome of nonsyphilitic interstitial keratitis and vestibuloauditory symptoms) at a single institution during roughly a half century. PATIENTS AND METHODS Medical records of all patients diagnosed as having Cogan syndrome at the Mayo Clinic in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate hearing outcomes and effects of stimulation rate on performance with the Nucleus Freedom cochlear implant (Cochlear Americas, Denver, CO). STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING Randomized, controlled, prospective, single-blind clinical study using single-subject repeated measures (A-B-A-B) design at 14 academic centers in the United States and(More)
Ten children who were diagnosed with auditory neuropathy were matched with ten children who were diagnosed with other etiologies. All twenty children received cochlear implants at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Various measures were used to compare the outcomes for the two groups. We compared the children's unaided and aided audiograms, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare presentations of Ménière's disease (MD), vestibular migraine (VM), and Ménière's disease plus vestibular migraine (MDVM), with and without comorbid chronic subjective dizziness (CSD). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review with diagnosis confirmed by consensus conference of investigators using published criteria for MD, VM, and CSD. (More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the results of cochlear implantation in patients with neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) and bilateral vestibular schwannoma. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case review. SETTING Three academic tertiary referral centers. PATIENTS Seven patients with NF2 and bilateral vestibular schwannoma who lost hearing in at least one ear after(More)
OBJECTIVES To review our experiences with some of the preoperative and postoperative findings in five children who were diagnosed with auditory neuropathy and were provided with cochlear implants. We describe changes in auditory function, which enabled these children to have significant improvement in their hearing and communication skills. STUDY DESIGN(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the clinical presentation, management strategies, and outcomes of 14 endolymphatic sac tumors (EST). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series. SETTING Collective experience accrued from 2 tertiary referral centers. PATIENTS All patients with ESTs. INTERVENTION Microsurgery, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S)(More)
The frequency of cochlear implantation has increased tremendously over the past decade. Cochlear implantation is often performed as an outpatient procedure and is considered an acceptable treatment for severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss in patients who are refractory to conventional hearing augmentation. Imaging plays an important part in the(More)
