In patients with a cochlear implant (CI), the first critical point in processing auditory information from sound stimuli that leads to comprehension is the interface between the electrode and the cochlear nerve, which is dependent on providing appropriate current input. The purpose of this work was to evaluate the longitudinal differences in psychoacoustic(More)
Heat shock proteins 70 kDa (HSP70) and apoptosis were investigated in thymus of sea bass juveniles (Dicentrarchus labrax) subsequently to a vaccination against Listonella (syn. Vibrio) anguillarum. HSP70 expression was measured by immunohistochemistry and immunoenzymatic methods, resulting in increase in HSP70 after bath immunization and persistent in fish(More)
The aim of the present study is to measure the perceived pleasantness during the observation of a musical video clip in a group of cochlear implanted adult patients when compared to a group of normal hearing subjects. This comparison was performed by using the imbalance of the EEG power spectra in alpha band over frontal areas as a metric for the perceived(More)
Clinical pictures of laryngopharyngeal reflux, described in the literature, often differ considerably and are described with wide severity. Some classifications employ a total score i.e., addition of the assigned scores to single aspects of video-laryngoscopy. These classifications have the disadvantage of being complex, not reproducible and, in part,(More)
The Authors describe a new dynamic endonasal Teflon stent, nick-named "little gun", used after the surgical transnasal endoscopic treatment of bilateral choanal atresia in a 4-day-old male. This Teflon stent, conceived to perfectly fit the new naso-choanal openings and to achieve an "orthopaedic" tutorial function, is made of three portions: "A", the(More)
The study of some characteristics (clinical and sociodemographic) of a population of adolescent clients and the modes of reception and therapeutic modalities which have been proposed for them introduces a discussion on: the contributions and the limits of so-called informal modes of reception and assigning to treatment, as well as the value of taking into(More)
Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia (greater than 20 mg%) is an audiological risk factor. In order to check early detection of bilirubin-induced neurological damage in the brainstem, 19 newborns were enrolled in the present study. The criteria was a bilirubin level ranging from 12 to 20 mg%. A likely mechanism for bilirubin intoxication may be the slowing and(More)
The human food-borne pathogens Arcobacter butzleri and A. cryaerophilus have been frequently isolated from the intestinal tracts and fecal samples of different farm animals and, after excretion, these microorganisms can contaminate the environment, including the aquatic one. In this regard, A. butzleri and A. cryaerophilus have been detected in seawater and(More)
