PURPOSE It is assumed that preoperative use of a bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) test-band will give a patient lower gain compared to real post-operative gain because of the reduction of energy through the scalp when using a test-band. Hearing gains using a BAHA test-band were analyzed in patients with unilateral hearing loss. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
CONCLUSION Our findings suggest that migrainous vertigo (MV) has a substantial vestibulo-spinal abnormality that can be uncovered by posturography. Patients with MV also showed a difficulty in using multisystem information, especially somatosensory information. Caloric and sensory organization tests (SOTs) have complementary roles in assessing(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine whether abnormalities in outer hair cell (OHC) function were related to tinnitus through interaural comparison of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs). STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Tertiary care university teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-seven patients with unilateral tinnitus and(More)
We evaluated the short-term efficacy of Epley, Semont, and sham maneuvers for resolving posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) in a prospective multicenter randomized double-blind controlled study. Subjects were randomly divided into three groups: Epley (36 patients), Semont (32 patients), and sham (Epley maneuver for the unaffected(More)
We report a 73-year-old woman with primary left atrial rhabdomyosarcoma and its 1H MR spectroscopy (MRS) findings. The tumor showed a 2.8 cm sized lesion in the posteroinferior atrial wall on MRI. 1H MR spectra were acquired using a point-resolved spectroscopy (PRESS) sequence with electrocardiographic (ECG) gating and respiratory motion. The use of 1H-MRS(More)
Cistanche tubulosa and Laminaria japonica have been reported to have anti-oxidative, anticoagulant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. They are expected to be a promising candidates for promoting hair growth and treating dandruff and scalp inflammation as a consequence. In this double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial, we investigated(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The major mechanism of inner ear cell damage is the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Korean red ginseng (KRG) has an anti-ROS effect; thus we hypothesized that KRG may be of use for the treatment of chronic idiopathic tinnitus. The aim of the study is to investigate clinical outcomes and health-related quality of life(More)
INTRODUCTION Although the effects of scanner background noise (SBN) during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have been extensively investigated for the brain regions involved in auditory processing, its impact on other types of intrinsic brain activity has largely been neglected. The present study evaluated the influence of SBN on a number of(More)
