Genetic testing has the potential to impact hearing preservation following cochlear implantation.

Acta Otolaryngol 2020 Jun 5;140(6):438-444. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Shinshu University School of Medicine, Matsumoto, Japan.

Recent advances in less-invasive surgery and electrode design allow for a high degree of hearing preservation (HP) after cochlear implantation (CI), although residual hearing still deteriorates in some patients. To date, the factors predictive of preserving residual hearing remain a controversial topic. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive factors, including the etiology of hearing loss (HL) as a patient-related factor, influencing residual HP after CI. Read More

There is debate over the applicability of bilateral same-day myringoplasty in patients with bilateral chronic tympanic membrane perforations (TMPs) requiring ear surgery on both sides. To evaluate the healing and hearing outcomes of bilateral endoscopic 'push-through' cartilage myringoplasty in patients with bilateral chronic TMPs with mucosal chronic otitis media (COM) on the same day. The medical records of 60 patients (120 ears) with bilateral chronic TMPs who underwent bilateral same-day or sequential endoscopic push-through cartilage myringoplasty between January 2014 and March 2019 were evaluated.

Lateralization of odor identification in right-handers.

Acta Otolaryngol 2020 Jun 3;140(6):509-513. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Interdisciplinary Center Smell and Taste, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Medical Faculty Carl Gustav Carus, Dresden, Germany.

Odor identification is related to odor naming, which is more of a verbal than an olfactory sensory task. Linguistic functions in right-handers are typically lateralized to the left hemisphere of the brain and the olfactory processing happens predominantly ipsilaterally to the stimulated side. Re-investigate side-related effect in healthy right-handed people with a larger sample size and investigate the influence of age or gender on the odor identification lateralization effect. Read More
