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)
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)
Cisplatin induces ototoxicity in adult and pediatric population. Our aim was (1) to assess the protective effect of intratympanic injections of erdosteine in the prevention of cisplatin-induced ototoxicity and (2) to investigate inner ear protection using a scanning electron microscope. Ears of 20 Hartley guinea pigs were assigned to four subgroups and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the utility of the paraclinical tests in patients presenting with clinical diagnosis of cervicogenic dizziness. STUDY DESIGN Case controlled. SETTING Otolaryngology clinic of a tertiary referral hospital center. PATIENTS Twenty-five subjects with cervicogenic dizziness and 25 subjects with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. (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)
OBJECTIVE Identify independent clinical and audiometric factors to predict a positive high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scan for superior canal dehiscence (SCD). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart review. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS Patients presenting SCD. INTERVENTION(S) Audiogram, VEMP, temporal bone HRCT, and SCD symptoms(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)
INTRODUCTION Middle ear glandular neoplasms are infrequent causes of a middle ear mass. They can have exocrine and/or neuroendocrine differentiation. It is currently thought that these tumors are indistinguishable each from another. Herein, we present a new case of a middle ear glandular neoplasm. Our objective is to review all cases described in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate audiometric and clinical results of children fitted with a bone-anchored hearing aid with specific emphasis on speech discrimination in different sound environments after one year of use. METHODS We performed a prospective longitudinal study. Seventeen patients between the ages of 5 and 18 years old were included. All patients(More)
