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)
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)
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)
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)
Sir Decreasing healthcare budgets 1 are pressuring orthopaedic services to create efficient pathways of care such as the care of fractures referred from the A&E department. Since the referrals to these clinics are what determine a large proportion of the patient population, the clinical validity of these referrals contributes to the efficacy of these(More)
