Speech recognition abilities in noise for children with severe-to-profound unilateral hearing impairment.
The children with unilateral hearing impairment require a more advantageous listening condition to perform equally as well as their normally hearing counterparts. Expand
Ophthalmologic findings in children with sensorineural hearing loss.
Routine ophthalmologic examination can be beneficial in the evaluation of children with SNHL and was not significantly different between patients whose conditions were diagnosed on the basis of newborn screening and other patients. Expand
Validity, internal consistency, and test/retest reliability of a localization disabilities and handicaps questionnaire.
Comparisons of the responses of the subjects with normal hearing and those with UHI revealed significant differences among the groups for both disabilities and handicaps, establishing construct validity and establishing internal consistency. Expand
Sensorineural Hearing Impairment in Children with Chiari I Malformation
The prevalance of Chiari I malformation in children presenting to a pediatric tertiary care hearing loss clinic is described, the phenotype of hearing loss is characterized, and central nervous system imaging for the evaluation of children with SNHI may be indicated. Expand
Effect of interstimulus interval on subjective categorical loudness judgements.
The findings provide ISI recommendations for loudness judgment test administration, and indicate that judgments of a second stimulus are shifted in the direction of the intensity of the preceding stimulus and that this effect intensifies with shorter ISIs. Expand
The impact of directional listening on perceived localization ability
An important purpose of hearing is to aid communication. Because hearing-in-noise is of primary importance to individuals who seek remediation for hearing impairment, it has been the primaryExpand
The impact of listening with directional microphone technology on self-perceived localization disabilities and handicaps.
Objective measures of localization ability are warranted and if significance is noted, clinicians should caution patients when moving in their environment, but concern over decreases in quality of life and safety with directional microphones need not be considered. Expand
08:18: Pediatric Unilateral Sensorineural Hearing Loss
Diagnostic yield of genetic and radiographic testing is high in unilateral SNHI and the CT and MR are complementary studies in patients with unilateralSNHI. Expand
