Evaluation of the Benefits for Overall Health Following Cochlear Implant Treatment in the Elderly Population

2017-03-07 19:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to show that cochlear implant treatment improves the overall health related quality of life and general well-being in elderly individuals.

Description

The study is designed as an observational prospective repeated measures study with each subject acting as his/her own control. Subjects are evaluated subjectively at pre- and post-operative intervals that coincide with their routine visits to the clinic. Outcomes from routine practice and application of cochlear implant intervention are recorded through observational measures using clinical standards scales used widely in geriatrics and audiology. The study is aimed at collection of data for patients who have already made the decision together with their implant centre clinician for an implant device from the company Cochlear. Patients are approached for study participation prior to surgery by the caring clinician on a consecutive and voluntary basis and on condition of signing the patient informed consent.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.

Gradual bilateral hearing loss associated with aging that is due to progressive degeneration of cochlear structures and central auditory pathways. Hearing loss usually begins with the high frequencies then progresses to sounds of middle and low frequencies.

The 8th cranial nerve. The vestibulocochlear nerve has a cochlear part (COCHLEAR NERVE) which is concerned with hearing and a vestibular part (VESTIBULAR NERVE) which mediates the sense of balance and head position. The fibers of the cochlear nerve originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS). The fibers of the vestibular nerve arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI.
