The clinical utility of auditory evoked potentials for validation of the pure tone audiogram in adult compensation claimants and medicolegal patients is examined. Large sample comparisons of evoked potential and conventional pure tone thresholds showed that the slow vertex response can estimate true hearing levels within 10 dB in almost all patients. Given(More)
The use of brainstem electric response audiometry (BERA) for early detection of hearing loss is predicated upon large-sample normative data. Auditory brainstem response (ABR) thresholds for click and notch-masked tonepip stimuli were examined in 230 normal infants with no risk factors for hearing loss, tested under audiometrically ideal conditions at(More)
Offset auditory responses were investigated by electroencephalography mainly in the 1970s, but since then no particular attention has been paid to them. Among the studies using magnetoencephalography (MEG) devices there are, to our knowledge, only three studies of the auditory off-response, and no significant variance has ever been observed between the(More)
Trigeminal neurosensory impairment is frequently observed following orthognathic surgery. The purpose of the present study is to visualize the degree of trigeminal nerve impairment following bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO). Twenty patients who underwent BSSO were in the present study. To record the modified somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP),(More)
CONCLUSION The surface template-assisted marker positioning (STAMP) method is useful for successful Bonebridge™ (BB) implantation on a planned site while avoiding dangerous positions. OBJECTIVES To confirm the usefulness of the STAMP method for the safe operation of BB. METHODS From a patient's temporal bone CT data, a guide plate and confirmation plate(More)
PURPOSE    Most of the current Bonebridge surgeries undergo preoperative simulation planning in a computer. However, surgeons usually use the landmarks on the bone surface to determine the location where to implant the device, using the simulation image in the computer only as a reference (conventional method). We developed an image-guided method for(More)
