Authors:

Fed Regist 2018 Oct;83(208):54007-10

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is classifying the active implantable bone conduction hearing system into class II (special controls). The special controls that apply to the device type are identified in this order and will be part of the codified language for the active implantable bone conduction hearing system's classification. We are taking this action because we have determined that classifying the device into class II (special controls) will provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the device.

The Biaxial Double-Barrel Fibula Flap-A Simplified Technique for Fibula Maxillary Reconstruction.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 27;77(2):412-425. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Director, Head and Neck Cancer Program, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, Portland; Consultant, Head and Neck Institute, Portland, OR.

Purpose: Previously described techniques for microvascular fibula reconstruction of Brown Class II to IV maxillectomy defects are complex, require multiple osteotomies, result in a short pedicle, and inadequately reconstruct the dental alveolus in preparation for endosseous implants. This report describes a simplified technique for Brown Class II to IV defects that re-creates facial support, allows for dental reconstruction with appropriately positioned implants, and maintains adequate pedicle length.

Materials And Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed of all patients with Brown Class II to IV maxillectomy defects immediately reconstructed with a biaxial double-barrel fibula flap technique. Read More

Colonic Malignant Melanoma: F-FDG PET/CT Findings

Mol Imaging Radionucl Ther 2018 Oct;27(3):144-145

Acıbadem Mehmet Ali Aydınlar University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Nuclear Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey

Primary malignant melanoma occurs most often in the skin and much less frequently in the choroid layer of the eyes, in the leptomeninges, oral cavity, nasal mucosa, pharynx, esophagus, bronchus, under the nail and vaginal or anorectal mucosa. Primary melanoma of the gastrointestinal tract has been confirmed for lesions occurring in the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, and anorectum through several published reports, as these are the areas where melanocytes normally exist. The occurrence of primary malignant melanoma in the colon is relatively rare, because melanocytes are embryologically absent in the large bowel. Read More

Using Microphone Technology to Improve Speech Perception in Noise in Children with Cochlear Implants.

J Am Acad Audiol 2018 Oct;29(9):814-825

Children's Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists, Children's Hospital Medical Office Building, Knoxville, TN.

Background: Cochlear implant (CI) users are affected more than their normal hearing (NH) peers by the negative consequences of background noise on speech understanding. Research has shown that adult CI users can improve their speech recognition in challenging listening environments by using dual-microphone beamformers, such as adaptive directional microphones (ADMs) and wireless remote microphones (RMs). The suitability of these microphone technologies for use in children with CIs is not well-understood nor widely accepted. Read More

Cortical reorganization after cochlear implantation for adults with single-sided deafness.

PLoS One 2018 24;13(9):e0204402. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Université François-Rabelais de Tours, CHRU de Tours, UMR-S1253, Tours, France.

Background: Adults with single sided deafness (SSD) have lost binaural function, which limits sound source localization, speech understanding in noise, and quality of life. For SSD patients, restoration of bilateral auditory input is possible only with a cochlear implant (CI). In this study, cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEPs) and behavioral performance were measured in left-implanted (SSD-CI-L) and right-implanted (SSD-CI-R) patients before and after cochlear implantation.
