Analyze reasons for unilateral conductive hearing loss (CHL) with unknown etiology in children.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: International journal of pediatric otorhinolaryngology
To evaluate the long-term audiometric outcomes, sound localization abilities, binaural benefits, and tinnitus assessment of subjects with cochlear implant (CI) after a diagnosis of unilateral severe-t...
Purpose This clinical focus article describes considerations for recommending assistive hearing technology to infants and young children who have mild bilateral or unilateral hearing loss. These condi...
Surgical treatment of sagittal synostosis involves various surgical modalities. Long-term follow-up issues include increased intracranial pressure, secondary sutural fusion, incomplete reossification,...
There are few studies reporting the use of atlantoaxial pedicle screws and the long-term effects of C1-C2 posterior fusion in children. Our study is to investigate the initial results of C1-C2 pedicle...
In the new era of minimally invasive surgery, recent studies encouraged the adoption of endoscopic approaches as the most effective way to treat (pilonidal sinus disease) PSD but little is known about...
This feasibility study evaluates whether children with unilateral, moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss experience an improvement in speech perception, hearing in noise, localiz...
The purpose of this 3-year prospective investigation is to examine the short-term and long-term (1 year)efficacy of the bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) in adults with single sided deafnes...
The majority of studies about bimodal hearing advantages have been conducted on adults but scant relevant studies into pediatric users, therefore more comparative studies are required to c...
Hearing aids are used to improve audibility for patients with hearing loss and improve speech perception. In addition to these immediate benefits, amplification has the potential to have l...
The long-term effect of general anesthesia on developing brain is the focus of clinicians when infants exposed to general anesthesia for a long time during operation. A retrospective study...
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
Partial or complete hearing loss in one ear.
Morphological findings useful in differentiation and classification of results in CYTODIAGNOSIS and related techniques.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)
Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
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...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
