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). A thorough systematic review of the English and French literature from 1948 to February 2014 was performed using Ovid Medline. An ancestor search was also completed. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Vertigo of vascular origin is usually limited to migraine, transient ischemic attacks, and ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Excluding migraines, focal neurologic deficits usually allow a fast identification of the impending neural damage and permit a rapid transfer to a stroke team. Few authors have considered that a vascular origin should be(More)
OBJECTIVE For some patients, conventional hearing aids might have disadvantages that clearly limit the benefit of using them. The middle ear implant, Vibrant Soundbridge hearing prosthesis offers an approach to help such patients. Our study's objective was to identify the binaurality in a well-fitted digital hearing aid worn in the contralateral ear in(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 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 benefits in terms of sound localization, to evaluate speech discrimination in noise, to appraise the prosthesis benefit and to identify outcome in right and left handed patients when BAHA are implanted on the right or on the left deaf side. METHODS Two years prospective study in a tertiary referral center. Tests consist on Hearing(More)

Translabyrin-thine approach to skull base tumors with hearing preservation. evoked myogenic potentials and distortion-product otoacoustic emissions combined with glycerol testing in endolymphatic hy-drops: their value in early diagnosis. Dear Editor, Tympanic membrane (TM) perforation is most commonly a result of infection, trauma, or the sequelae of(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 assess the diagnostic yield of audiograms associated to electronystagmography (ENG) for screening vestibular schwannomas (VSs), to determine what definition of asymmetric sensorineural hearing loss (ASNHL) fits best for the diagnosis of VS, and to determine if cochleovestibular symptoms and atherosclerotic potential risk factors play a role in(More)
