CONCLUSIONS Our results indicated that electric acoustic stimulation (EAS) is beneficial for Japanese-speaking patients, including those with less residual hearing at lower frequencies. Comparable outcomes for the patients with less residual hearing indicated that current audiological criteria for EAS could be expanded. Successful hearing preservation(More)
CONCLUSIONS The patients who received electric acoustic stimulation (EAS) cochlear implantation had relatively good vestibular function compared with the patients who did not have residual hearing. The vestibular function was well preserved after atraumatic EAS surgery. The round window approach and soft electrode are preferred to decrease the risk of(More)
CONCLUSION 3 T MRI after intratympanic injection of gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA) is more useful for the diagnosis of endolymphatic hydrops compared with the glycerol test and electrocochleography (ECoG). OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between 3 T MRI after intratympanic injection of GBCA, the glycerol test, and ECoG in patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES Mutations in the GJB2 gene have been of particular interest as it is the most common causative gene for congenital deafness in all populations. Detailed audiological features, including genotype-phenotype correlations, have been well documented. However, in spite of abundant gene as well as protein expression in the vestibular end organs, neither(More)
CONCLUSION Bilateral electric acoustic stimulation (EAS) effectively improved speech perception in noise and sound localization in patients with high-frequency hearing loss. OBJECTIVE To evaluate bilateral EAS efficacy of sound localization detection and speech perception in noise in two cases of high-frequency hearing loss. METHODS Two female patients,(More)
CONCLUSION The surface template-assisted marker positioning (STAMP) method is useful for successful Bonebridge™ (BB) implantation on a planned site while avoiding dangerous positions. OBJECTIVES To confirm the usefulness of the STAMP method for the safe operation of BB. METHODS From a patient's temporal bone CT data, a guide plate and confirmation plate(More)
