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)
Electroneurography (ENoG) is one of the tests recently introduced for the clinical analysis of facial paralysis. Right-left facial differences, test-retest variability and differences between the first and the last CAPs after 25 consecutive stimuli were studied in 24 normal subjects. Significant inter-subject right-left differences were not found.(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)
The mean velocity of the eye during the execution of a voluntary saccade can reach levels close to 400 degrees/sec, for amplitudes of 40 degrees. However, during the execution of these saccades, there are moments in which the eye develops velocities superior to 500 degrees/sec. The latency of the saccades diminishes when the stimuli are periodic, though it(More)
The average velocity-amplitude characteristics of rapid eye movements (voluntary saccades, and fast phases of caloric and optokinetic [OKN] nystagmus) in normal humans were analyzed with an analogue-digital computer and compared among them. For the same amplitude of movement the velocity of the saccades is considerably greater than that of the fast phases(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)
