Effects of FM system fitted into the normal hearing ear orcartilage conduction hearing aid fitted into the affected ear on speech-in-noise recognition in Japanese children with unilateral congenital aural atresia.

J Med Invest 2020 ;67(1.2):131-138

Department of Otolaryngology, Tokushima University Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Tokushima, Japan.

The effects of FM system fitted into the normal hearing ear (NHE) or a cartilage conduction hearing aid (CCHA) fitted into the affected ear (AE) on the speech recognition ability in noise were examined in children with unilateral congenital aural atresia (UCAA). In children with bilateral normal hearing (BNH), speech recognition score (SRS) was significantly decreased in the noisy environment of -5 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), compared with those in quiet. In children with UCAA, SRS was significantly decreased in noisy environments of 0 and -5 dB SNR, compared with those in quiet. Read More

A new adhesive bone conduction hearing system effectively treats conductive hearing loss in children.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Jul 3;122:117-125. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, St. Elisabeth-Hospital, Ruhr University Bochum, Bochum, Germany.

Objectives: Bone conduction hearing devices integrated in softbands (BCDSs) are frequently not well accepted by children with conductive hearing loss due to pressure on the head, sweating, or cosmetic stigma. A non-surgical hearing system (ADHEAR) uses a new bone conduction concept consisting of an audio processor connected to an adhesive adapter fixed behind the ear. This study is the first to evaluate the audiological and clinical outcome of this novel system, comparing it with conventional BCDSs in a short- and mid-term follow-up in children under 10 years of age.

The study of individuals with autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease affords one of the best opportunities to characterize the biological and cognitive changes of Alzheimer's disease that occur over the course of the preclinical and symptomatic stages. Unifying the knowledge gained from the past three decades of research in the world's largest single-mutation autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease kindred - a family in Antioquia, Colombia with the E280A mutation in the Presenilin1 gene - will provide new directions for Alzheimer's research and a framework for generalizing the findings from this cohort to the more common sporadic form of Alzheimer's disease. As this specific mutation is virtually 100% penetrant for the development of the disease by midlife, we use a previously defined median age of onset for mild cognitive impairment for this cohort to examine the trajectory of the biological and cognitive markers of the disease as a function of the carriers' estimated years to clinical onset.

Cartilage conduction as the third pathway for sound transmission.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Apr 2;46(2):151-159. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Nara Medical University, Kashihara, Japan.

It has been long considered that air and bone are the two major mediators that conduct sounds to the inner ear. In 2004, Hosoi found that vibration of aural cartilage, generated by placing gently a transducer on it, could create audible sound with the same level of clarity as air- and bone-conduction sound. He thus proposed the term "cartilage conduction" for this concept. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgery, Nara Medical University, 840 Shijo-cho, Kashihara, Nara 634-8522, Japan.

Objective: Cartilage conduction (CC) is a new transduction form, and hearing devices that utilize CC present a new option for patients with aural atresia. However, in occluded ears, low-tone sounds are transmitted very effectively, resulting in excessive low-tone sound emphasis and speech recognition reduction. This study aimed to clarify low-tone speech recognition for CC in occluded ears, and determine if excessive low-tone sound emphasis decreases maximum speech recognition scores. Read More

Authors:
Mia E Miller

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2019 Apr 3;52(2):265-272. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

House Clinic, 2100 West 3rd Street, Suite 111, Los Angeles, CA 90057, USA. Electronic address:

Bonebridge is an active bone conduction device that consists of a bone conduction-floating mass transducer (BC-FMT) and magnet internally and an audio processor externally. Surgery for implantation can be performed under local anesthesia but requires surgical planning for adequate bone depth for the BC-FMT well. Bonebridge does not require osseointegration to function, so the device can be activated early. Read More

Brief Commentary on Gidley et al: "Contemporary Opinions on Intraoperative Facial Nerve Monitoring".

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 10 7;159(4):601-602. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

2 Department of Head and Neck Surgery, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA.

Intraoperative facial nerve monitoring (IOFNM) has evolved from requiring sophisticated electromyography equipment to a self-contained monitor with an auditory signal. Subspecialty ear surgeons currently use IOFNM in most otologic and temporal bone procedures as it improves facial nerve outcomes. Our competency and near-universal adoption of IOFNM notwithstanding, otolaryngologists are rarely reimbursed for this procedure. Read More
