Clinical and audiological features in auditory neuropathy.
OBJECTIVE To medically and audiologically characterize a population of children diagnosed as having auditory neuropathy (AN). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective medical chart review. SETTING/SUBJECTS WeExpand
Mutational analysis of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene in Chinese pediatric subjects with aminoglycoside-induced and non-syndromic hearing loss
Mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have been found to be associated with sensorineural hearing loss. We report here a systematic mutational screening of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene in 128Expand
Molecular analysis of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA and tRNASer(UCN) genes in paediatric subjects with non-syndromic hearing loss
Hearing loss is a very common congenital disorder affecting one in 1000 newborns. More than 50% of deafness cases in the paediatric population have a genetic cause with autosomal dominant, autosomalExpand
Molecular mechanisms underlying inner ear patterning defects in kreisler mutants.
Prior studies have shown that kreisler mutants display early inner ear defects that are related to abnormal hindbrain development and signaling. These defects in kreisler mice have been linked toExpand
The large vestibular aqueduct: A new definition based on audiologic and computed tomography correlation
Objective The study goal was to determine the prevalence and clinical significance of a large vestibular aqueduct (LVA) in children with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Study Design and Setting WeExpand
Auditory Skills Development among Children with Developmental Delays and Cochlear Implants
Objectives: We sought to understand auditory skills outcomes in young children with cochlear implants and developmental delay. Methods: Children who received cochlear implants at less than 36 monthsExpand
Enlarged Vestibular Aqueduct Syndrome in the Pediatric Population
Objective To correlate clinical and audiometric findings with the radiologic appearance in patients with enlarged vestibular aqueduct. Design A retrospective review of data from enlarged vestibularExpand
Perceived qualitative benefits of cochlear implants in children with multi-handicaps.
OBJECTIVE To determine families' perceived benefits of cochlear implants in children with multiple-handicaps. METHODS Parents/guardians of a child with a cochlear implant for at least 3 months,Expand
Children with cochlear implants and developmental disabilities: a language skills study with developmentally matched hearing peers.
The number of children receiving cochlear implants (CIs) with significant disabilities in addition to their deafness has increased substantially. Unfortunately, children with additional disabilitiesExpand
Hearing Preservation Surgery for Small Endolymphatic Sac Tumors in Patients with von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome
Objective To determine the incidence of bilateral endolymphatic sac tumors in von Hippel-Lindau syndrome and to describe the technique and results of hearing preservation surgery for smallExpand
