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.

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...
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...
Preoperative imaging is standard practice for cochlear implant candidacy. Postlingually deafened adults rarely have temporal bone abnormalities that alter management.
Bilateral implant recipients theoretically have access to binaural cues. Research in postlingually deafened adults with cochlear implants (CIs) indicates minimal evidence for true binaural hearing. Co...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical significance of delayed-onset hearing loss in children. Seventy-three children who underwent cochlear implantation (CI) were included. They wer...
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...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate short and long term outcomes (benefits and side-effects) of bilateral cochlear implantation in Finnish children.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and document longitudinal efficacy in young children implanted bilaterally with MED-EL COMBI 40+ / PULSARCI100/SONATATI100 cochlear implant systems...
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...
The objective of the present study is to investigate the effect dexamethasone and hyaluronic acid have on hearing preservation
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.
