OBJECTIVE To evaluate listening habits and quality of musical sound after cochlear implantation. STUDY DESIGN A total of 89 consecutive, adult, postlingually deafened, cochlear implant recipients entered the study. Music questionnaire included questions about musical background, listening habits, and quality of musical sound through cochlear implants.(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate music perception and enjoyment following cochlear implantation and its impact on quality of life (QOL). MATERIAL AND METHOD Eighty-eight adult post-lingually deaf cochlear implant users entered the study. The music questionnaire analyzed musical background, listening habits, and quality of musical sound through the cochlear implant.(More)
The objective of this study was to compare telephone speech perception and subjective preferences in cochlear implant users with two different speech-processing strategies: high-definition continuous interleaved sampling (HDCIS) and fine structure processing (FSP). A randomized double-blind study was designed for intra-individual comparison of HDCIS and(More)
Cochlear implants are a new surgical option in the hearing rehabilitation of patients with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) and patients with vestibular schwannoma (VS) in the only hearing ear. Auditory brainstem implant (ABI) has been the standard surgical treatment for these patients. We performed a literature review of patients with NF2 and patients with(More)
To evaluate cochlear implant (CI) users' self-reported level of sound quality and quality of life (QoL). Sound quality was self-evaluated using the hearing implant sound quality index (HISQUI29). HISQUI29 scores were further examined in three subsets. QoL was self-evaluated using the glasgow benefit inventory (GBI). GBI scores were further examined in three(More)
Differential diagnosis of geniculate ganglion tumours includes chiefly schwannomas, haemangiomas and meningiomas. We report the case of a patient whose clinical and imaging findings mimicked the presentation of a facial nerve schwannoma.Pathological studies revealed a lesion with nerve bundles unstructured by intense collagenisation. Consequently, it was(More)
About 60 cases have been published since Pulec first described hemangiomas of the geniculate ganglion. They usually cause facial weakness even when they are very small. In cases of insidious evolution of facial paralysis, MRI, and CT are very helpful to rule out these tumors. The treatment is based on complete surgical removal, although it has to be(More)
Choristomas of the internal auditory meatus are very uncommon tumors. Because of their rarity and the lack of a consistent clinical and radiological pattern, they are usually misdiagnosed as vestibular schwannomas. Surgical exploration usually shows involvement of the vestibular, cochlear or facial nerve by the tumor, representing a diagnostic and(More)
Facial nerve schwannomas are rare lesions that may involve any segment of the facial nerve. Because of their rarity and the lack of a consistent clinical and radiological pattern, facial nerve schwannomas located at the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) and internal auditory canal (IAC) represent a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for clinicians. In this(More)
