Two-stage hearing screening, with a first stage of automated otoacoustic emissions (AOAE) followed by automated auditory brainstem response (AABR), is the protocol of choice for the early detection of congenital and early-onset hearing loss (PCEHL) in a number of developed countries. However,...
We present monozygotic twin sisters with a non-syndromic enlargement of the endolymphatic duct and sac. The diagnosis was confirmed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and DNA typing. The twins were concordant for the inner ear malformation and subsequent confirmation of the hearing loss in...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of the application of newer generation cochlear implants on facial nerve stimulation. This was a retrospective case review in a tertiary referral centre. We report two patients implanted with a Nucleus 22 cochlear implant (Cochlear Corp.)...
The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the compatibility of the hearing screener with pure tone audiometry and its capacity to predict the need and benefit of HAs. The device is a low-cost, easy to handle and safe instrument. It screens at 1 and 3 kHz at three different intensity...
Sixty patients, 37 women and 23 men, aged 30-65 years, were included in the study. All had adult-onset hearing loss to an extent that necessitated hearing-aid fitting. The objective was to describe the audiometric features and extent of hearing loss, and to determine the aetiology of hearing...
Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) have attracted a great deal of interest from audiologists, biophysicists, cell biologists, and engineers worldwide. Despite great achievements having been made in recent years, many theoretical and practical aspects of OAE assessment still remain to be explored. One...
We investigated, in new hearing aid candidates, whether or not the use of coping strategies and the life situation, in terms of activity limitation, participation restriction and psychological well-being, were associated with the outcome of audiological counselling, i.e. the patients' acceptance...
The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of an individual pre-fitting intervention for first-time hearing aid users. Thirty-eight hearing impaired adults were randomly assigned to a sound awareness pre-fitting intervention ( n= 19) or to a control group ( n= 19). The purpose of the...
