OBJECTIVES To review the controversial aspects of the enlarged vestibular aqueduct syndrome. STUDY DESIGN Contemporary review. METHODS A literature search using the terms "enlarged vestibular aqueduct and large vestibular aqueduct" were used to generate the articles for review in this article. RESULTS The enlarged vestibular aqueduct is a condition(More)
The contribution of the middle ear air spaces to sound transmission through the middle ear in canal wall-up and canal wall-down mastoidectomy was studied in human temporal bones by measurements of middle ear input impedance and sound pressure difference across the tympanic membrane for the frequency range 50 Hz to 5 kHz. These measurements indicate that,(More)
This study compared calbindin D-28k immunoreactivity in the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body (MNTB) in young (3-4 month old) and old (24-26 month old) CBA/CaJ mice, and young (3-4 month old), middle-aged (6.5-8.5 month old), and old (24-29 month old) C57BL/6 mice. C57BL/6 mice exhibit progressively more severe peripheral (sensorineural) hearing loss(More)
Laser Doppler vibrometry was used to measure the sound-induced tympanic membrane (TM) velocity, assessed near the umbo, in 56 normal hearing human subjects at nine sound frequencies. A second series of measurements was made in 47 subjects with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Each set of measurements has features in common with previously published(More)
To demonstrate the feasibility and clinical significance of cervical vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (cVEMP) test in pediatric patients.Retrospective review study was conducted in a pediatric tertiary care facility. A total of 278 patients were identified with adequate data, including medical notes, results of cVEMP, and imaging studies.Among the total(More)
Acoustic vibrations in tissue are often difficult to image, requiring high-speed scanning, high sensitivity and nanometer-scale axial resolution. Here we use spectrally encoded interferometry to measure the vibration pattern of two-dimensional surfaces, including the skin of a volunteer, at nanometric resolution, without the need for rapid lateral scanning(More)
