OBJECT The aim of this study was to assess whether outcomes from excision of acoustic neuroma vary among patients and have a material impact on their quality of life (QOL). METHODS A questionnaire concerning postoperative symptoms and the Short Form 36 (SF-36) QOL instrument were mailed to 97 consecutive patients who had undergone acoustic neuroma surgery(More)
Real-ear to coupler differences (RECDs) are important for the selection of appropriate amplification characteristics for hearing impaired children. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of patent grommets on RECDs in children. Subjects were 32 children aged between 4 and 7 years, 16 had a patent grommet in one or both ears as confirmed by(More)
It is not always possible to undertake extensive real-ear measurements, especially in infants and young children. An alternative approach is to estimate the real-ear SPL by use of an acoustic transform function such as the real-ear-to-coupler difference (RECD). This may be used to estimate the real-ear sound pressure level (SPL) obtained from an insert(More)
The glycolytic enzyme glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) signals during cellular stress via several post-translational modifications that change its folding properties, protein-protein interactions and sub-cellular localization. We examined GAPDH properties in acute mouse liver injury due to ethanol and/or acetaminophen (APAP) treatment.(More)
