Critical Factors for Binaural Hearing in Children with Bilateral Sequential Cochlear Implantation: First Implant Performance and Inter-Implant Interval.

This study evaluated the influence of the performance of the first cochlear implant (CI-1) on the second implant (CI-2) and the significance of inter-implant intervals in children with sequential cochlear implantation.


Bilateral bone conduction stimulation provides reliable binaural cues for localization.

This study aimed to characterize binaural hearing abilities with bone conduction stimulation in simulated conductive hearing loss. Bone conduction hearing devices (BCDs) are a common method of rehabilitating conductive hearing loss. However, little is known about the access these devices provide to binaural cues. To study the ability of BCDs to restore access to binaural cues in conductive loss, normal hearing listeners were plugged unilaterally and bilaterally and localization ability was assessed using a ...

Cost-effectiveness analysis of bilateral cochlear implants for children with severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears in Singapore.

A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that provides a sense of sound for the user, which can be used unilaterally or bilaterally. Although there is advocacy for the benefits of binaural hearing, the high cost of cochlear implant raises the question of whether its additional benefits over the use of an acoustic hearing aid in the contralateral ear outweigh its costs. This cost-effectiveness analysis aimed to separately assess the cost-effectiveness of simultaneous and sequential bilateral cochlear ...

Purpose This study investigated progressive hearing loss in a cohort of children who were identified with permanent mild bilateral hearing loss. Method This population-based study included 207 children with permanent mild bilateral hearing loss, diagnosed and followed from 2003 to 2016 in 1 region of Canada. Clinical characteristics and initial audiologic results were collected prospectively at diagnosis, and audiologic information was updated. Changes in hearing levels between the 1st and most recent asses...

Audiological Considerations for Managing Mild Bilateral or Unilateral Hearing Loss in Infants and Young Children.

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 conditions present special challenges compared to bilateral permanent hearing losses that are moderate to profound in their degree in that the recommendation to proceed with technology is not as clear. Conclusion Current clinical practice guidelines and protocols for pediatric hearing aid fitting recommend managing ...

Where Do We Go From Here? Some Messages to Take Forward Regarding Children With Mild Bilateral and Unilateral Hearing Loss.

Purpose This epilogue discusses messages that we can take forward from the articles in the forum. A common theme throughout the forum is the ongoing need for research. The forum begins with evidence of potential progressive hearing loss in infants with mild bilateral hearing loss, who may be missed by current newborn hearing screening protocols, and supports the need for consensus regarding early identification in this population. Consensus regarding management similarly is a continuing need. Three studies ...

Can Differences in Early Hearing Development Be Distinguished by the LittlEARs Auditory Questionnaire?

This study asks whether the LittlEARs Auditory Questionnaire (LEAQ), a caregiver measure, can differentiate between the early auditory development of children with bilateral cochlear implants (CIs), bilateral hearing aids (HAs), and children with Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD) who wear CIs or HAs. The LEAQ is sensitive to impaired auditory development but has not previously been used to distinguish developmental changes between groups of children using different hearing technologies or with di...

The Merits of Bilateral Application of Bone-Conduction Devices in Children With Bilateral Conductive Hearing Loss.

This study aims to characterize lateralization of sounds and localization of sounds in children with bilateral conductive hearing loss (BCHL) when listening with either one or two percutaneous bone conduction devices (BCDs).

Binaural processing and phonological awareness in Australian Indigenous children from the Northern Territory: A community based study.

Research has found that otitis media (OM) is highly prevalent in Australian Indigenous children, and repeated bouts of OM is often associated with minimal-to-moderate hearing loss. However, what is not yet clear is the extent to which OM with hearing loss impacts auditory signal processing specifically, but also binaural listening, listening in noise, and the potential impact on phonological awareness (PA) - an important, emergent literacy skill. The goal of this study was to determine whether auditory abil...

Effects of Simulated and Profound Unilateral Sensorineural Hearing Loss on Recognition of Speech in Competing Speech.

Unilateral hearing loss (UHL) is a condition as common as bilateral hearing loss in adults. Because of the unilaterally reduced audibility associated with UHL, binaural processing of sounds may be disrupted. As a consequence, daily tasks such as listening to speech in a background of spatially distinct competing sounds may be challenging. A growing body of subjective and objective data suggests that spatial hearing is negatively affected by UHL. However, the type and degree of UHL vary considerably in previ...

Acoustic Hearing Can Interfere With Single-Sided Deafness Cochlear-Implant Speech Perception.

Cochlear implants (CIs) restore some spatial advantages for speech understanding in noise to individuals with single-sided deafness (SSD). In addition to a head-shadow advantage when the CI ear has a better signal-to-noise ratio, a CI can also provide a binaural advantage in certain situations, facilitating the perceptual separation of spatially separated concurrent voices. While some bilateral-CI listeners show a similar binaural advantage, bilateral-CI listeners with relatively large asymmetries in monaur...

Interhemispheric auditory connectivity requires normal access to sound in both ears during development.

Despite early bilateral cochlear implantation, children with congenital deafness do not develop accurate spatial hearing; we thus asked whether auditory brain networks are disrupted in these children. EEG responses were evoked unilaterally and bilaterally in 13 children with normal hearing and 16 children receiving bilateral cochlear implants simultaneously. Active cortical areas were estimated by the Time Restricted Artifact and Coherent source Suppression (TRACS) beamformer and connected cortical areas we...

Listening-Related Fatigue in Children With Unilateral Hearing Loss.

Purpose Listening-related fatigue is an understudied construct that may contribute to the auditory, educational, and psychosocial problems experienced by children with unilateral hearing loss (UHL). Herein, we present an overview of listening-related fatigue in school-age children with hearing loss (CHL), with a focus on children with UHL. Method Following a review of research examining listening-related fatigue in adults and CHL, we present preliminary findings exploring the effects of unilateral and bilat...

Usefulness of cochlear implantation in children with single sided deafness.

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 power of concentration due to faster hearing exhaustion. Therefore, it is important to provide children with SSD with adequate hearing amplification to restore binaural hearing. This can only be achieved by provision with a cochlear implant (CI). But these treatment option in children with SSD is still under discus...

Audibility-Based Hearing Aid Fitting Criteria for Children With Mild Bilateral Hearing Loss.

Purpose Because of uncertainty about the level of hearing where hearing aids should be provided to children, the goal of the current study was to develop audibility-based hearing aid candidacy criteria based on the relationship between unaided hearing and language outcomes in a group of children with hearing loss who did not wear hearing aids. Method Unaided hearing and language outcomes were examined for 52 children with mild-to-severe hearing losses. A group of 52 children with typical hearing matched for...

Hearing in Noise With Unilateral Versus Bilateral Bone Conduction Hearing Aids in Adults With Pseudo-conductive Hearing Loss.

The role of bilateral bone conduction amplification in patients with bilateral conductive hearing loss is unclear because cranial attenuation is usually considered negligible, and both cochleae can be stimulated with similar efficacy by each device. The aim of the study was to determine if bilateral bone-conduction hearing aids can improve hearing in noise in a homogeneous group of normal-hearing subjects with bilateral pseudo-conductive hearing loss.

Performance of Children With Hearing Loss on an Audiovisual Version of a Nonword Repetition Task.

Purpose The aims of this study were to (a) determine if a high-quality adaptation of an audiovisual nonword repetition task can be completed by children with wide-ranging hearing abilities and to (b) examine whether performance on that task is sensitive to child demographics, hearing status, language, working memory, and executive function abilities. Method An audiovisual version of a nonword repetition task was adapted and administered to 100 school-aged children grouped by hearing status: 35 with normal h...

Sequential stream segregation with bilateral cochlear implants.

Sequential stream segregation on the basis of binaural 'ear-of-entry', modulation rate and electrode place-of-stimulation cues was investigated in bilateral cochlear implant (CI) listeners using a rhythm anisochrony detection task. Sequences of alternating 'A' and 'B' bursts were presented via direct electrical stimulation and comprised either an isochronous timing structure or an anisochronous structure that was generated by delaying just the 'B' bursts. 'B' delay thresholds that enabled rhythm anisochrony...

To that end, topics include (a...

Turkish adaptation of quality of life questionnaire for children with hearing loss and the assesment of the effects of hearing loss on quality of life among children aged 7-12.

Monitoring the effects of Hearing Loss on Quality of Life, which is frequently seen on children and causes inefficiency in speech, education, and social development, is not only important for listening skills, using hearing devices, and linguistic and speech skills but also important for the treatment. And, if no treatment possible, then it is also critical for rehabilitation with different equipment. By making use of the Quality of Life Questionnaire, developed by Streufert at University of Washington in 2...
