Hearing in the elderly: the Framingham cohort, 1983-1985. Part I. Basic audiometric test results.
This the first of a series of reports emanating from the auditory testing of the Framingham cohort during biennial exam 18 presents the results of the auditory questionnaire, hearing sensitivity, acoustic compliance measures, and word recognition tests obtained from 1662 men and women in their 60th through 90th decades.

Incidence of hearing decline in the elderly.
Although hearing loss increased with age, age alone accounted for less than 10% of the variance and factors that co-vary with age may be responsible, the difference in phenomena between the low frequencies and the highs suggests that two different processes are occurring. Expand
Effectiveness of adenoidectomy and tympanostomy tubes in the treatment of chronic otitis media with effusion.
Adenoidectomy should be considered when surgical therapy is indicated in children four to eight years old who are severely affected by chronic otitis media with effusion, and lowered the overall post-treatment morbidity. Expand
Hearing in the elderly--the Framingham cohort, 1983-1985: Part II. Prevalence of central auditory processing disorders.
It is concluded that the prevalence of CAPD in the elderly is less common than previous studies would suggest and its presence is dominated by factors other than chronological age. Expand
Chronic Secretory Otitis Media: Effects of Surgical Management
It is recommended that adenoidectomy be considered in the initial surgical management of 4- to 8-year-old children with hearing loss due to chronic secretory otitis media that is refractory to medical management and, further, that the size of theadenoid not be used as a criterion for adenoidsectomy.

Current status of laryngectomee rehabilitation: I. Results of therapy.
Data indicate that the rehabilitative needs of today's laryngectomee are not being met successfully with traditional methods. Expand

  • 1994
The Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of 1971-75 contains valuable information because it provides unbiased estimates of the state of hearing in the general population and there was no clear, consistent relationship between audiometric thresholds and measures of well-being. Expand
Predictive Value of Tympanometry in Middle Ear Effusion
The high incidence of effusion at surgery in the low risk group is far higher than expected and is presumably due to reinfection of these ears during the time between examination and operation. Expand
High-Frequency Electrostimulation Hearing after Mastoidectomy
Determinations of the highest measurable frequency may be the most sensitive measure of surgically-induced, high-frequency sensorineural hearing changes following mastoid surgery. Expand
Otologic complaints in temporomandibular joint syndrome.
The apparently significant reduction in symptoms experienced by some subjects in the absence of audiometric change suggests the operation of unmeasured factors in their response to treatment. Expand
