INTRODUCTION Long-term drug delivery to the inner ear may be achieved by functionalizing cochlear implant (CI) electrodes with cells providing neuroprotective factors. However, effective strategies in order to coat implant surfaces with cells need to be developed. Our vision is to make benefit of electromagnetic field attracting forces generated by CI(More)
A persistent colonization with Scedosporium apiospermum (S. apiospermum) often results in disseminated infection with a high mortality rate in immunosuppressed patients. We present the first case of successful prevention of scedosporiosis in an adolescent female cystic fibrosis patient post double lung transplant, with a combination of local and systemic(More)
In Germany, congenital hearing disorders are usually detected too late resulting in insufficient therapy of the disorder. To investigate these problems, the Federal Ministry of Health and the principal associations of statutory health insurance commissioned a pre-operative study. The study's aim is to verify whether introduction of a universal new-born(More)
Small differences in nitrate intake with the drinking water are not reflected in nitrate contents of saliva and urine of test persons. A correlation of nitrate concentration in body fluids and cancer incidence can be expected hardly. Inflammatory diseases of the gut are frequently accompanied by enhanced endogenous nitrate synthesis and have an essential(More)
BACKGROUND Complications in Children and Adults with Cochlear Implant Background: Cochlear Implants (CI) are developed in the last 20 years to a regular therapy in congenital deaf children/newborns and deafened teens and adults. The success of speech understanding with the CI in adults is so extraordinary that meanwhile also unilateral deaf, contralateral(More)
Concurrent hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and intratympanic steroid application (ITS) are beneficial as salvage therapy for therapy-refractory sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). The findings encourage further research on the treatment of noise-induced and idiopathic SSNHL with concurrent use of HBOT and ITS respecting also patients with long-term(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic sinus surgery usually requires a move of the middle nasal turbinate into the midline to achieve a better sight into the ethmoidal sinuses. In this procedure damages of the turbinate are possible, which later can lead to a scarred fixation of the turbinate. Fixing of the turbinate to the septum can avoid this effect, but could reduce(More)
