The issue of whether an upper age limit should be set for cochlear implantation in congenitally deaf subjects has often been debated. To gain more insight, the speech perception abilities were analyzed of 12 congenitally deaf subjects whose age at the time of cochlear implantation ranged from 4 to 33 years. Subjects implanted during adulthood only showed(More)
Several electrophysiological techniques have been used to supplement behavioural measurements in the evaluation of the benefit of cochlear implantation, namely the electrically evoked auditory brainstem response (EABR), electrically evoked middle latency response (EMLR) and electrically evoked late latency response (EALR). To study the interdependence of(More)
The field of cochlear implantation is developing rapidly. In subjects with bilateral profound deafness who gain no benefit from conventional hearing aids the aim of cochlear implantation is to provide a means for them to receive auditory sensations. Throughout the world, most cochlear implant centres are still continuing their research efforts to improve(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was, first, to determine the effect of the concentrations of volatile anesthetics (halothane and isoflurane) on the intraoperative elicited electrical stapedius reflex threshold (ESRT) and, second, to evaluate the relation between the ESRTs and postoperative C-levels. STUDY DESIGN This was a prospective clinical study in a(More)
Electrically evoked brainstem responses (EABR) and event-related cortical potentials were recorded in seven postlingually deaf adults who were experienced users of a Nucleus multichannel cochlear implant. The patients were divided into two subgroups: good performers and moderate performers. Poor EABR were found in two of the moderate performers. The(More)
To investigate whether electrically evoked event-related responses (P300) could be elicited by extra-cochlear stimulation, measurements were performed on a group of adults fitted with the single-channel extra-cochlear implant. To optimize measurement conditions, and because of the low number of subjects still using an extra-cochlear device in our cochlear(More)
