Outcome of cochlear implantation in asymptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus deafened children.

Summary of "Outcome of cochlear implantation in asymptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus deafened children."

Congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infection is a common cause of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). The incidence of SNHL is higher in symptomatic cCMV infants and is usually identified early. By contrast, the incidence of SNHL is lower in children with asymptomatic cCMV, and the hearing loss can be delayed in onset and progressive. The objective was to compare the outcome of cochlear implantation in children deafened by cCMV with a control group of children with implants who do not have the condition.

Potential benefits from cochlear implantation of children with unilateral hearing loss.

Objectives/methods The aim of this discussion paper is to review several issues relevant to the viability of cochlear implantation (CI) of children with severe-profound unilateral hearing loss (UHL) a...

The Role of Preoperative Imaging for Cochlear Implantation in Postlingually Deafened Adults.

Preoperative imaging is standard practice for cochlear implant candidacy. Postlingually deafened adults rarely have temporal bone abnormalities that alter management.

Genotype Distribution, Viral Load and Clinical Characteristics of Infants with Postnatal or Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection.

Congenital cytomegalovirus infection is a leading cause of long-term sequelae. Cytomegalovirus is also frequently transmitted to preterm infants postnatally, but these infections are mostly asymptomat...

Abstract Aims: Neurological outcomes differ considerably between symptomatic and asymptomatic infants with congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. Our objective was to characterize laboratory mark...

Preoperative Imaging of Sensorineural Hearing Loss in Pediatric Candidates for Cochlear Implantation.

Cochlear implantation is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment for children with marked bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. It provides auditory benefits that range from simp...

Relationship Between Auto NRT and Behavioural T & C Levels With the Nucleus Freedom Cochlear Implant

Cochlear implants require programming on an individual basis to provide appropriate levels of electrical stimulation. This program, or "map", is placed in the speech processor of the cochl...

Does Normal Brain Imaging Predict Normal Neurodevelopmental Outcome in Fetuses With Proven Cytomegalovirus Infection?

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the largest member of the virus family Herpesviridae that infects almost all humans at some point in their lives (Ross, 2004). Congenital CMV infection is most lik...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (COCHLEAR IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the COCHLEAR NERVE in the inner ear to create sound sensation in patients with residual nerve fibers.

Infection with CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, characterized by enlarged cells bearing intranuclear inclusions. Infection may be in almost any organ, but the salivary glands are the most common site in children, as are the lungs in adults.

The cochlear part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The cochlear nerve fibers originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project peripherally to cochlear hair cells and centrally to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS) of the BRAIN STEM. They mediate the sense of hearing.

Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (AUDITORY BRAIN STEM IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than to the inner ear as in COCHLEAR IMPLANTATION.

Infection of the retina by cytomegalovirus characterized by retinal necrosis, hemorrhage, vessel sheathing, and retinal edema. Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a major opportunistic infection in AIDS patients and can cause blindness.
