OBJECTIVE Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a commonly recognized viral cause of perinatal sensorineural hearing loss. CMV-infected infants are also at risk for developmental neurological deficits. This retrospective study assesses the impact of CMV-induced deafness on pediatric cochlear implant outcomes. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING Thirteen patients from the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy, risks, and indications of revision cochlear implantation (RCI) and to identify the clinical, audiologic, and device-related characteristics that predict outcome. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series. SETTING Academic tertiary referral center. PATIENTS Adults (> or = 18 yr) who underwent RCI at Johns Hopkins(More)
OBJECTIVE An aging American population carries a high prevalence of profound sensorineural hearing loss. We examined the performance of multichannel cochlear implant recipients in a large database of adult subjects. DESIGN Nonconcurrent prospective study of a national cohort with multivariate regression analysis of preoperative and postoperative(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of revision cochlear implantation (RCI) and to identify clinical and device-related factors predictive of RCI outcome. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series with attempted correlation to ex vivo device analysis. SETTING Academic tertiary referral center. PATIENTS Children (<18 yr) who underwent RCI in a tertiary-care(More)
BACKGROUND This study explored factors associated with speech recognition outcomes in postmeningitic deafness (PMD). The results of cochlear implantation may vary in children with PMD because of sequelae that extend beyond the auditory periphery. OBJECTIVE To determine which factors might be most determinative of outcome of cochlear implantation in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of GJB2 gene mutations in patients undergoing cochlear implantation (CI) and their impact on rehabilitative outcome following implantation. DESIGN Prospective determination of GJB2 mutation by sequence analysis by denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography and its correlation with outcome following CI. (More)
