OBJECTIVE: A computed tomography (CT)-based morphological-investigation to describe temporal bone growth and to devise a predictive test of the likely success of Bonebridge implantation into the growing mastoid region of the temporal bone in young patients. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cross-sectional study. SETTING: University Hospital Halle (Saale), Germany. PATIENTS: Two cohorts participated. This first, of patients aged less than 21 years, comprised 42 men, and 33 women patients...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of combination therapy (combined intratympanic and systemic use of steroids, CT) with systemic steroid therapy (SST) as a primary treatment for sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). METHODS: An electronic database search (PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and CNKI databases) was performed. Review Manger 5.3 was used for data synthesis. Data were collected on the following outcomes of interest: the proportion of patients with hearing improvement, changes in pure tone averages (PTA), and speech discrimination score (SDS)...

OBJECTIVES: Bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHAs) have been known to partially restore some of the functions lost in subjects with single-sided deafness (SSD). Our aims in this systemic review were to analyze the present capabilities of BAHAs in the context of SSD, and to evaluate the efficacy of BAHAs in improving speech recognition in noisy conditions, sound localization, and subjective outcomes. DESIGN: A systematic search was undertaken until August 2015 by two independent reviewers, with disagreements resolved by consensus...

HYPOTHESIS: Descriptive statistics with respect to patient anatomy and image guidance accuracy can be used to assess the effectiveness of any system for minimally invasive cochlear implantation, on both an individual patient and wider population level. BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive cochlear implantation involves the drilling of a tunnel from the surface of the mastoid to cochlea, with the trajectory passing through the facial recess. The facial recess anatomy constrains the drilling path and places prohibitive accuracy requirements on the used system...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical significance of cardiovascular factors, including arterial stiffness and metabolic syndrome scores, in the development of vestibular neuritis. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective, case-control study. SETTING: Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS: Fifty-eight adult patients with vestibular neuritis (VN) and 58 age- and sex-matched controls were evaluated between January 2015 and January 2016...

Ravi K Lingam, Paul Bassett
OBJECTIVE: To describe via a meta-analysis of the published literature, the performance of non-echo-planar diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) in detecting middle ear cholesteatoma. METHODOLOGY: A systematic review of the published literature was performed to identify original studies evaluating the diagnostic performance of non-echo-planar DWI in detecting middle ear cholesteatoma. Only studies with surgical correlation were included. A bi-variate meta-analysis and hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic model was performed...

OBJECTIVE: We present a new instrument for evaluation of cochlear implant (CI) surgical skills and review its validation process. METHODS: An instrument to assess CI surgical competency incorporated results of structured surveys of comprehensiveness sent to 30 international CI experts and US trainees. One-hundred evaluations of 28 residents, fellows, and practicing CI surgeons were completed. Surgical skills were evaluated by four experienced neurotologists (two raters per subject) using two temporal bones per subject...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether wearing auditory assistive devices can improve gait and dynamic balance. PATIENTS: Three adult users of bilateral hearing assistive devices: one with cytomegalovirus exposure wearing cochlear implants, one with Ménière's disease wearing hearing aids, and one with presbystasis wearing hearing aids. INTERVENTION: Rehabilitative intervention involved participants performing gait and dynamic posture tasks with and without their hearing assistive devices...

INTRODUCTION: Optimal acoustic neuroma (AN) management involves choosing between three treatment modalities: microsurgical excision, radiation, or observation with serial imaging. The reported in-hospital mortality rate of surgery for AN in the United States is 0.5%. However, there has yet to be a nationwide examination of the AN surgery mortality rate encompassing the period beyond initial hospital discharge. METHODS: The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) from 2004 to 2013 identified AN patients receiving surgery...

Michael B Gluth, Erik G Nelson
HYPOTHESIS: We sought to establish that the decline of vestibular ganglion cell counts uniquely correlates with spiral ganglion cell counts, cochlear hair cell counts, and hearing phenotype in individuals with presbycusis. BACKGROUND: The relationship between aging in the vestibular system and aging in the cochlea is a topic of ongoing investigation. Histopathologic age-related changes the vestibular system may mirror what is seen in the cochlea, but correlations with hearing phenotype and the impact of presbycusis are not well understood...

OBJECTIVE: To present a child with cochlear nerve deficiency (CND) who received simultaneous bilateral simultaneous auditory brainstem implants (BS-ABI) and subsequently presented with bilateral cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks unresponsive to standard treatments. To propose a novel rigid retrosigmoid cranioplasty for treating and preventing CSF leaks in children at high risk for this complication. PATIENT: A 3.5-year-old child with CND, vertebral defects, anal atresia, cardiac defects, tracheo-esophageal fistula, renal anomalies, and limb abnormalities, coloboma, heart defect, atresia choanae, retarded growth and development, genital abnormality, and ear abnormality, Arnold Chiari malformation, previous treated tracheo-esophageal fistula underwent BS-ABI...

OBJECTIVE: Contemporary guidelines advise facial nerve (FN) decompression within 2 weeks of temporal bone trauma if a single electroneuronography (ENoG) demonstrates more than 90% degeneration of the FN. We report a case series demonstrating the potential of serial ENoG to guide FN management more than 2 weeks following injury. PATIENTS: Adults with traumatic temporal bone fractures and resultant ipsilateral FN paresis. INTERVENTION: Serial ENoG followed by observation or decompression of the FN...
