OBJECTIVE The presence of disabilities in addition to deafness poses unique challenges for evaluating outcomes in young children who receive cochlear implants. We describe two cases in which measures of joint attention and symbolic play contributed to our understanding of progress in language acquisition following implantation for children with additional(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL)-induced abolition of potassium siphoning by the vitreal end feet of Miller cells. METHODS Porcine eyecups were filled with stained balanced salt solution and PFCLs (perfluorodecalin, perfluorooctane, perfluoroperhydrophenanthrene or the semifluorocarbon perfluorohexylhexane). With optical(More)
The plasma protein binding of phenytoin was studied in 40 adult patients with varying degrees of renal function impairment. The patients had stable renal function and no other condition known to alter phenytoin binding. Binding was measured by equilibrium dialysis, and the apparent affinity constant was calculated using the binding data and the measured(More)

STUDY DESIGN Phase I feasibility clinical trial of surgery in 10 children, ages 2 to 5 years, over a 3-year period. SETTING Tertiary children's hospital and university-based(More)
In an experimental study, we determined the physiological hearing threshold of the rabbit in order to use these data as normative values for further experimental investigations. The aim was to use different acoustic stimuli (click and tone-pip stimuli) with different frequency spectra for air and bone conduction (BC) in order to obtain further information(More)
