OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of cognition and noise reduction (NR) technology in cochlear implants (CIs) on speech perception and listening effort. METHODS: Thirteen adults fitted with unilateral CIs (Nucleus(®) 6, CP900) participated in this study. Participants performed: (I) cognitive tests of working memory and processing speed, (II) speech perception in noise tests, and (III) an auditory-visual dual-task paradigm to quantify listening effort, as a part of the three-phase experimental study...

OBJECTIVE: To study the aspects of the quality of life (QoL) on which music has an impact in adult cochlear implant (CI) users. METHODS: Thirty adult CI users aged between 18 and 81 years old with a wide range of patient characteristics and musical backgrounds participated in the study. Six focus group discussions about music in everyday life were conducted and data were analysed using template analysis based on the QoL model of the World Health Organisation Quality of Life BREF questionnaire...

OBJECTIVES: To analyse language development of children with a cochlear implant (CI) in relation to length of CI use and age at implantation and to examine the suitability of the TEDIL as an assessment tool for measuring early language development in Turkish children. METHODS: A total of 119 children implanted with a CI before 5 years of age were assessed acutely on sound field thresholds, speech recognition thresholds, open-set and closed-set monosyllabic word tests, the TEDIL, categories of auditory performance (CAP), and speech intelligibility rating (SIR)...

OBJECTIVES: Cochlear implantation (CI) under local anaesthetic (LA) has previously been shown to be a successful and safe option for a specific group of patients (e.g. elderly and significant co-morbidity). We aim to discuss our practice and obtain qualitative information about patient experience from our cohort of patients at the Yorkshire Auditory Implant Service (YAIS). METHODS: Retrospective chart review to include demographics, co-morbidities and physiological parameters were recorded and used to calculate P-POSSUM (Portsmouth Physiological and Operative Severity Score for the enumeration of Mortality and Morbidity) scores...

OBJECTIVE: To describe cases of complicated middle ear infections in children with cochlear implants (CI), i.e., episodes of acute otitis media (AOM) and acute mastoiditis (AM), resulting in hospitalization. METHODS: A total of 206 children under 16 years (300 implantations) were implanted between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2014 at the West Danish CI Center, Department of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Aarhus, Denmark. By means of two prospective local databases, episodes of AOM or AM and demographics were retrieved including biochemistry, microbiology, length of follow- up, and variable treatment modalities (intravenous (IV) antibiotics, revision mastoidectomy, and insertion of ventilation tubes)...

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the cochlea basal diameter (A value) measurement can be consistently and precisely obtained from high-resolution temporal bone imaging for use in cochlear length estimation. METHODS: A feasibility study at a tertiary referral center was performed using the temporal bone CTs of 40 consecutive patients. The distance from the round window to the lateral wall was measured for each cochlea by two independent reviewers, a neuroradiologist and an otolaryngologist...

OBJECTIVE: Review of cochlear implant (CI) outcomes in patients with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2), implanted in the presence of an ipsilateral vestibular schwannoma (VS). Hearing restoration was combined in some cases with a Bevacizumab regime. METHOD: Retrospective review of 12 patients, managed over the period 2009-2016, at a tertiary referral multidisciplinary NF2 clinic. The patients are grouped by hearing outcomes to explore likely protective factors, and to generate a proposed decision-making tool for the selection of either CI or Auditory Brainstem Implant (ABI)...

INTRODUCTION: The benefits of cochlear implantation extend beyond improved speech recognition and into overall health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Several measures of HRQoL, categorized as generic or disease specific, have been used in the cochlear implant literature. The clinical utility of generic HRQoL measures have been reported to be variable by previous investigators. The degree to which HRQoL correlates to speech perception is largely unknown. METHODS: A prospective single-subject design at a large tertiary care center...

OBJECTIVES: (1) To describe auditory performance and subjective benefits in adults with congenital or prelingual deafness who received a cochlear implant (CI) during adolescence or adulthood, and (2) to examine the benefits as experienced by these CI users. METHODS: Twenty-one adults aged 23-65 years participated in the study. All had a congenital or prelingual deafness (onset before age 3). They received a CI between the age of 16 and 61 years (mean age: 31). Speech recognition scores before and after implantation were computed and a questionnaire on subjective benefits (French adaptation of the Adult Cochlear Implant Questionnaire, designed by Zwolan and collaborators (1996, Self-report of CI use and satisfaction by prelingually deafened adults...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of a virtual reality (VR) temporal bone simulator in training cochlear implant surgery. METHODS: We compared the performance of 12 otolaryngology registrars conducting simulated cochlear implant surgery before (pre-test) and after (post-tests) receiving training on a VR temporal bone surgery simulator with automated performance feedback. The post-test tasks were two temporal bones, one that was a mirror image of the temporal bone used as a pre-test and the other, a novel temporal bone...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the validity of the Digit Triplet Test (DTT) in a simulated home environment for measuring speech recognition in adults with cochlear implants by comparing the result to clinic speech perception tests. To evaluate the acceptability of the DTT in adults using cochlear implants. METHODS: A prospective single-centre study with the following outcomes: • DTT Speech Reception Threshold • Clinic speech perception tests (BKB sentences in quiet and noise, City University of New York sentences with lip-reading) • A satisfaction questionnaire to assess patient perception of the DTT Sixteen people using cochlear implants aged from 43 to 83 years took part...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically review previous literature to determine to what extent hearing- impaired children with cognitive disabilities benefit from cochlear implantation (CI). Ultimately, to recommend guidelines for preoperative cognitive testing of hearing- impaired children and for the postoperative rehabilitation programs.

J C Cisneros, R de Brito, G S de Martins, N Candido, R Ferraz, R Bento
INTRODUCTION: The microgrinding technique is used to study cochlear implant electrode positioning and cochlear trauma. It may be argued that this technique might cause damage to inner cochlear structures even without a cochlear implant insertion and thus it should not be recommended. Most papers do not explain how microgrinding is performed, referring to older papers for its description. Properly describing the technique and re-evaluating its safety may reassure researchers of their findings when studying trauma after cochlear implant insertion...

OBJECTIVES: To report our institutional experience of the management of patients with enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) and compare it to the literature. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective review of patients' records from 1993 to 2015. The age, sex, associated malformations, relevant past medical history, genetic screening results, possible surgical incident, implant model and duration of follow- up, outcome in terms of Categories of Auditory Performance (CAP scores), and integration or resuming mainstream school or work were recorded...

OBJECTIVE: To report the preliminary outcomes of auditory brainstem implantation (ABI) under a compassionate use protocol for two ABI devices that are not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) patients who underwent microsurgery for vestibular schwannoma (VS) and placement of either the Cochlear ABI541 or Med-El Synchrony ABIs. Peri-operative and device- related complications were reviewed...
