Although central nervous system abnormalities are incidentally detected in preoperative brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies in pediatric cochlear implant (CI) candidates, the clinical significance of the abnormalities remains unclear. We aimed to assess post-implantation auditory and speech performance in patients with brain lesions seen on MRI.(More)
CONCLUSION The Korean version of the Clinical Assessment of Music Perception (K-CAMP) test is an efficient, self-administrable test for discrimination of a wide range of music perception ability in adult Korean cochlear implant (CI) users. OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were the development of a clinically practical test of music perception for adult(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the auditory and speech outcome in deaf children with deaf parents (CDP) after cochlear implantation (CI), emphasizing both the presence of additional caregiver and patients' main communication mode. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case review. SETTING Cochlear implant center at a tertiary referral hospital. PATIENTS Fourteen CDP and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare binaural performance of auditory localization task and speech perception in babble measure between children who use a cochlear implant (CI) in one ear and a hearing aid (HA) in the other (bimodal fitting) and those who use bilateral CIs. DESIGN Thirteen children (mean age ± SD = 10 ± 2.9 years) with(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to compare the timbre recognition and preferences of young adolescents with cochlear implants (CIs) to that of adolescents with normal hearing (NH). METHODS Nine Korean adolescents with CIs and 25 adolescents with NH participated in this study. After listening to each of four Western instruments and five traditional Korean(More)
CONCLUSION The results revealed that children with intellectual disability (ID) who underwent cochlear implantation (CI) showed gradual progress in their auditory perception and speech development. ID in children should not be considered a contraindication for CI, because they are able to obtain a chance to develop oral communication skills following CI. (More)
OBJECTIVES Resonance problems in hearing impaired (HI) individuals have been described as aspects of nasality. However, there are limitations in being able to explain the range of resonance problems. Therefore, this study suggests a perceptual rating that will effectively explain the characteristics of resonance problems in HI individuals. METHODS(More)
A variety of internal and external factors influence speech perception performance following cochlear implantation (CI) in adult deaf patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the speech perception performance during repetition testing according to various factors and to identify the predictive factors associated with postoperative speech perception.(More)
