Most ad hoc and sensor network research assumes idealised radio propagation models without considering fading and shadowing effects. Experimental results have shown that many well-designed protocols will fail simply because of fading and shadowing experienced in a realistic wireless environment. While fading and shadowing for radio propagation are well(More)
Cochlear implantation has a limited but definite role in the rehabilitation of certain neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) patients. The presence of a dead ear either before, or after, tumour removal does not necessarily imply loss of function in the eighth nerve; in some instances the hearing loss will be cochlear. Promontory or round window electrical(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse the long-term outcome of translabyrinthine surgery for vestibular schwannoma (VS) in neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2). RESEARCH TYPE: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Two tertiary referral NF2 units. PATIENTS One hundred and forty eight translabyrinthine operations for patients with VS were performed. Preoperative stereotactic(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the reliability of the orthodromic facial nerve action potential (FNAP), recorded from the intratemporal portion of the facial nerve on stimulation within the cerebellopontine angle. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS Ten consecutive patients undergoing translabyrinthine resection of(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess facial nerve injury caused by vestibular Schwannoma compression and the adaptive ability of the nerve/muscle complex to maintain normal clinical facial function. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary referral centre. PATIENTS Thirty-four patients undergoing translabyrinthine resection of vestibular schwannoma. (More)
HYPOTHESIS This study aimed to assess the electrophysiologic parameters of near-field action potentials recorded from the intratemporal facial nerve. BACKGROUND Assessment of facial nerve function is limited because of the inaccessibility of the majority of its course deep in the temporal bone. Indirect measurements have therefore evolved in which(More)
