Bone-anchored hearing aid (Baha) in patients with Treacher Collins syndrome: tips and pitfalls.
TLDR
Baha can provide effective auditory rehabilitation for children with Treacher Collins syndrome, as long as it is performed in a tertiary care center where a multidisciplinary approach to the frequent comorbidities is possible. Expand
Unilateral sensorineural hearing loss in children.
TLDR
The authors present a report of 280 cases of unilateral sensorineural hearing loss in children, observed from 1979 to 1986 in the Bambino Gesu' Hospital in Rome, and discuss the methods for the etiological diagnosis and the possibility of prophylaxis both of U.H.L. and of communication difficulties.

Universal newborn hearing screening in the Lazio region, Italy
TLDR
The analysis of 2016 UNHS in the Lazio region allowed identification of several strengths and weaknesses of the initial phase of the program, including a correct spread and monitoring of UNHS among Level I facilities, with an adequate coverage rate, and the proper execution of audiological monitoring and diagnosis among Level III facilities.

Cervical chordoma in childhood: clinical statistical contribution.
TLDR
A case of a 4-year-old patient presenting with a retrostyloid mass, accompanied by nasal obstruction and some difficulty in swallowing at 12 months of age, which revealed a chordoma, which is rare in all age groups and it is of particular clinical and statistical interest in infancy. Expand
A Multicenter Clinical Evaluation of Data Logging in Cochlear Implant Recipients Using Automated Scene Classification Technologies
TLDR
Differences between age groups concerning device use and exposure to various noise environments, especially between the youngest and oldest age groups, are confirmed, while similar levels of loudness were observed. Expand
Sophono in Pediatric Patients
TLDR
Sophono implants can be a valuable alternative to percutaneous implants in patients with bilateral, conductive hearing loss, and several precautions should be taken, including a careful preoperative assessment of skull bone thickness and a close postoperative follow-up of the skin under the external processor, especially over the first months.

Music perception improves in children with bilateral cochlear implants or bimodal devices.
TLDR
Bilateral cochlear implant and bimodal users perceived musical characteristics less accurately and more slowly than children with normal hearing and children who had music training were faster and more accurate, regardless of their hearing status. Expand
Pediatric BAHA in Italy: the “Bambino Gesù” Children’s Hospital’s experience
TLDR
The study results suggest that children presenting an indication to auditory rehabilitation with BAHA should be referred to specialized tertiary care centers, and implantation of children at an age younger than five and one-stage surgery can be conducted safely and effectively. Expand
Safety and Functional Results of Early Cochlear Implant Switch-On in Children
TLDR
Impedance measurements suggest that the earlier switched-on subjects benefit of lower and more stable impedances than subjects undergoing 1-month switch-on, and ECAP thresholds showed a similar, nonsignificant decreasing trend over time in both groups. Expand
Alpha EEG Frontal Asymmetries during Audiovisual Perception in Cochlear Implant Users. A Study with Bilateral and Unilateral Young Users.
TLDR
The presented results suggest that the unilateral patients could not appreciate the difference in the audio format as well as bilaterally implanted and normal hearing subjects. Expand
