The aim of the study was the objective evaluation of the hearing organ in children. Seven children aged 6-17 with end stage renal failure treated by haemodialysis were examined. Four- to five-hour dialyses were performed 2-3 times a week. Pure-tone audiometry was normal in five children. The reactions of brain stem responses (latency and interpeak latency)(More)
A number of papers present the research on hearing disturbances in the course of diabetes mellitus. Some authors report the damage of inner ear cells, whereas others maintain that it is located in the retrocochlear part of the hearing pathway. The objective of the paper was to find the location of the auditory pathway disturbances in children suffering from(More)

References data indicate the probability of inheritance of predisposition to post-streptomycin hearing loss. Ototoxicity after SM is transmitted by women. It is considered as autosomal dominant inheritance, but the transmission to the next generation is not explained by the Mendelian inheritance rule. The aim of our presentation is showing different kinds(More)
Otoacoustic emission is a noninvasive method of testing inner ear function. OAE is susceptible to the influence of many different factors of which the principal ones are the changes taking place in the middle ear. In transiently evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) we deal with double signal transmission through the middle ear. This means that the sound(More)
Alcohol has a local and general influence. A specially harmful effect is observed when it is abused--used frequently and in high concentrations. Chronic excessive drinking of alcohol results in sight deterioration, hearing loss and psychical disorders. The study aimed at evaluating the degree and place of the hearing organ damage in 30 alcoholics. They were(More)
