Patients with NF2 develop bilateral vestibular schwannomas with progressive hearing loss. Auditory brainstem implants (ABIs) stimulate hearing in the cochlear nuclei and show promise in improving hearing. Here, we assess the impact of ABI on hearing over time by systematically reviewing the literature and re-analyzed available individual patient data
A multidatabase search identified three studies with individual patient data of longitudinal hearing outcomes after ABI insertion in adults. Data was collected on hearing outcomes of different sound complexities from sound to speech using an ABI ± lip reading ability plus demographic data. Due to heterogeneity each study was analyzed separately using random effect multi-level mixed linear modelling.

Cochlear implantation leads to many structural changes within the cochlea which can impair residual hearing. In patients with preserved low-frequency hearing, a delayed hearing loss can occur weeks-to...
Cochlear implantation is an important method of hearing rehabilitation. Earlier studies have shown the influence of implantation on the vestibular system. However, until now, the effect of hearing reh...
Children with single sided deafness (SSD) show a poorer performance at school, which is attributable to reduced speech discrimination in noise, to reduced localization ability, and to a decreased powe...
Hearing loss is a common consequence of the strong acidosis induced by bromate poisoning. Partial hearing recovery has been achieved through medical or rehabilitative therapy but reports of surgical o...
In recent years, the preservation of residual hearing has become a major factor in patients undergoing cochlear implantation (CI). In studies attempting to pharmaceutically improve hearing preservatio...
This is a prospective, 1:1 randomized controlled trial of immediate versus delayed cochlear implantation (CI) on hearing handicap, communicative function, loneliness, mental wellbeing, and...
The cognitive profile of older adults with a severe to profound hearing impairment is determined by means of the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status, adjuste...
This longitudinal study evaluates the possible benefit of cochlear implantation in the poor ear of adults with asymmetric hearing loss who continue to use a hearing aid in the better heari...
Cochlear Implantation is a system developed to restore hearing in people with profound sensorineural hearing loss, whose classical hearing aids are ineffective. Surgery is necessary to ins...
This project aims to characterize the emergence of music appreciation in people who have suffered hearing loss and have been provided with partial restoration of hearing through cochlear i...
Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.
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.
Analyses for a specific enzyme activity, or of the level of a specific enzyme that is used to assess health and disease risk, for early detection of disease or disease prediction, diagnosis, and change in disease status.
Wearable sound-amplifying devices that are intended to compensate for impaired hearing. These generic devices include air-conduction hearing aids and bone-conduction hearing aids. (UMDNS, 1999)
Professionals skilled at diagnostic testing of hearing, HEARING IMPAIRMENT, and CORRECTION OF HEARING IMPAIRMENT by non-medical or non-surgical means.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
