Cochlear implants (CIs) process sounds electronically and then transmit electric stimulation to the cochlea of individuals with sensorineural deafness, restoring some sensation of auditory perception. Many congenitally deaf CI recipients achieve a high degree of accuracy in speech perception and develop near-normal language skills. Post-lingually deafened(More)
Eulerian Video Magnification (EVM) can enhance subtle changes in videos to reveal what was once invisible to the naked eye. In this proof of concept study, we investigated using EVM as a novel form of free flap monitoring. Free flaps with skin paddles were filmed in the operating room with manipulation of their pedicles. In a representative 77-year-old(More)
OBJECTIVE This study describes a case of a successful free flap repair using argatroban for local intraluminal irrigation as a substitute to heparin in a patient with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. METHODS Case report and review of literature. RESULTS The patient had an uneventful postoperative course, and the free flap survived without(More)
Purpose: This study examined the benefit of bimodal hearing (i.e., one cochlear implant and a contralateral hearing aid) for listening to words and sentences in quiet and in noise, the identification of vowels and immediate phonological memory. Method: Two groups of twenty adult cochlear implant recipients, those who used bimodal hearing on a regular basis,(More)
PURPOSE In this study, the authors examined the effects of aging and residual hearing on the identification of acoustically similar and dissimilar vowels in adults with postlingual deafness who use hearing aids (HAs) and/or cochlear implants (CIs). METHOD The authors used two groups of acoustically similar and dissimilar vowels to assess vowel(More)
