Dosimetric parameters associated with conductive or sensorineural hearing loss 5 years after intensity-modulated radiation therapy in nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

Acta Otolaryngol 2019 Mar 14:1-6. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

a Department of Radiation Oncology , Eye and ENT Hospital of Fudan University , Xuhui District , Shanghai , China.

Background: Most previous studies are separate dosimetric analyses of conductive or sensorineural hearing loss, and they are not conducive to a comprehensive assessment of auditory radiation damage.

Aims/objectives: Our study aimed to evaluate the long-term incidence of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) or conductive hearing loss (CHL) in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) after intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), and to investigate the relationship between SNHL or CHL and patient factors, treatment-related factors, and radiation dose parameters.

Material And Methods: Seventy patients (117 ears) with NPC, who were also treated with IMRT in our hospital from 2006 to 2014, were retrospectively analyzed. Read More

Hearing Rehabilitation through Bone-Conducted Sound Stimulation: Preliminary Results.

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Jan 11;23(1):12-17. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Secretaria de Saúde do Distrito Federal, Brasília, DF, Brazil.

 The bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) is a bone conduction system that transmits the sound directly to the inner ear by surpassing the skin impedance and the subcutaneous tissue. It is indicated for patients with mixed, conductive and unilateral sensorineural hearing loss who did not benefit from conventional hearing aids (HAs). Although the benefits from BAHA are well demonstrated internationally, this field still lacks studies in Brazil. Read More

Otologic, audiometric and speech findings in patients undergoing surgery for cleft palate.

BMC Pediatr 2018 Nov 8;18(1):350. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Otolaryngology Department, Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, Passeig Vall d'Hebron 119-129, 08035, Barcelona, Spain.

Background: Although considerable progress has been made in the last 30 years in the treatment of cleft palate (CP), a multidisciplinary approach combining examinations by a paediatrician, maxillofacial surgeon, otolaryngologist and speech and language pathologist followed by surgical operation is still required. In this work, we performed an observational cross-sectional study to determine whether the CP grade or number of ventilation tubes received was associated with tympanic membrane abnormalities, hearing loss or speech outcomes.

Methods: Otologic, audiometric, tympanometric and speech evaluations were performed in a cohort of 121 patients (children > 6 years) who underwent an operation for CP at the Vall d'Hebron Hospital, Barcelona from 2000 to 2014. Read More

Click emission in Dall's porpoise Phocoenoides dalli, focusing on physical properties of tissues.

PLoS One 2018 14;13(9):e0202426. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Global Institution for Collaborative Research and Education, Faculty of Fisheries Sciences, Hokkaido University, Hakodate, Hokkaido, Japan.

Dall's porpoise (Phocoenoides dalli) is one of most common North Pacific porpoise species, for which information on sound-emitting processes is limited. To evaluate the mechanism of click emission in the head of this porpoise, the distribution of acoustic impedance in head tissues was calculated using density and Young's modulus'which is a measure of linear resistance to linear compression. Two Dall's porpoise heads were examined: one for macroscopic dissection, and one for investigating the distribution of acoustic impedance calculated from CT-measured density, and Young's modulus measured by creep meter.

Vestn Otorinolaringol 2018;83(3):29-32

Academician I.P. Pavlov, First Saint-Petersburg, State Medical University, Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Saint-Petersburg, Russia, 197022; I.I. Mechnikov North-Western State Medical University, Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Saint-Petersburg, Russia, 191015.

The objective of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of mono- and binaural hearing aids in the rehabilitation of the adult patients of different age presenting with chronic symmetric hearing loss (CSHL). A total of 263 subjects at the age from 50 to 88 years complaining of moderate to severe (grade I-IV) chronic symmetric hearing impairment were available for the examination. Following the ENT examination with the application of pure tone audiometry and impedancometry, the participants of the study were supplied with the individually fitted digital behind-the-ear hearing instruments and underwent speech audiometry in the free sound field.

Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Dorchester, United Kingdom.

The correct diagnosis of CPA tumours is a relatively common issue in both neurological and ENT practice, the omission of which can have serious consequences for the patient. Properly set clinical guidelines and diagnostic protocols are key aspects of good clinical practice. In the case of CPA tumours, two options are available: the first is diagnosis with the help of an ABR as the primary tool for determining the group of patients with a possible tumour; the second is an MRI scan of the posterior cranial fossa.

Comparison of the Reynell Developmental Language Scale II and the Galker test of word-recognition-in-noise in Danish day-care children.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Jun 3;109:104-111. Epub 2018 Apr 3.

Research Unit for General Practice in Copenhagen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Objective: To search for predictive factors for language development measured by two receptive language tests for children, the Galker test (a word-recognition-in-noise test) testing hearing and vocabulary, and the Danish version of Reynell Developmental Language Scale (2nd revision, RDLS II) test, a language comprehension test. The study analysed if information about background variables and parents and pre-school teachers was predictive for test scores; if earlier middle ear disease, actual hearing loss and tympanometry was important for language development; and if the two receptive tests differed in terms of the degree to which variables were able to predict test scores at the age of three to five years.

Methods: All children aged three and five years attending 20 day-care centres for children without cognitive development issues from the Municipality of Hillerød, Denmark, were invited to participate. Read More

Auditory function in Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease.

J Neurol 2018 Jul 3;265(7):1580-1589. Epub 2018 May 3.

Nemours Biomedical Research, Center for Applied Clinical Genomics, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, DE, USA.

Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD; MIM 312080), an inherited defect of central nervous system myelin formation, affects individuals in many ways, including their hearing and language abilities. The aim of this study was to assess the auditory abilities in 18 patients with PMD by examining the functional processes along the central auditory pathways using auditory brainstem responses (ABR) and cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEP) in response to speech sounds. The significant ABR anomalies confirm the existence of dyssynchrony previously described at the level of the brainstem in patients with PMD. Read More
