Without closure, morbidity may include hearing loss, chronic otorrhea and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to evaluate the long-term speech perception and speech intelligibility of congenitally and prelingually deaf children after cochlear implantation. It was a longitudinal study following 63 congenitally or prelingually deaf children up to 5 years after implantation. They each received a nucleus multichannel cochlear implant before(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the audiologic outcome and feasibility of bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) and external auditory canal reconstruction (EACR) surgeries in pediatric patients presenting a congenital aural atresia (CAA). METHODS A retrospective chart review of 40 patients operated in our tertiary pediatric care center between 2002 and 2010 was(More)
OBJECTIVE Langerhans' cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare pathology that implies an abnormal proliferation of these kinds of cells associated with a granular infiltration that affects different structures of the human body, including the temporal bone. The authors present their series of LCH of the temporal bone in children at the Sainte-Justine university(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the correlation between the enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) diameter and (1) the hearing loss level (mild, moderate, severe and profound and (2) the hearing evolution. The secondary objective was to obtain measurement limits on the coronal plane of the temporal bone CT scan for the diagnosis of EVA. METHODS Retrospective study in a(More)
The objective of this review is to compare the symptomatological evolution following conservative management (CM) or microsurgery (MS) in patients with intralabyrinthine schwannomas (ILS).

Patients with superior dehiscence (SCD) syndrome present with vertigo and oscillopsia evoked by loud sounds and changes in middle ear or intracranial pressure. The first objective of this retrospective cohort study is to demonstrate that thin-section computed tomography (CT) scans reformatted in the plane of the superior semicircular canal (SSC)(More)
OBJECTIVES The incidence of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is approximately 0.001%. Those involving intracranial nerves are even more exceptional. Little information is available concerning work up and management. Our objective is: (1) to review all cases of intracranial MPNST described in the literature, (2) to highlight the suspicion of(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify and to compare the protective effect of intratympanic injections of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) or methylprednisolone to prevent cisplatin-induced ototoxicity, to investigate inner ear protection using an electron microscope and to evaluate the effect of 4% NAC on the middle ear. DESIGN Experimental study. SETTING Basic ear research(More)
