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...

OBJECTIVE Patients with ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunts with programmable valves who would benefit from osseointegrated hearing devices (OIHDs) represent a unique population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the magnetic field strengths of 4 OIHDs and their interactions with 5 programmable VP shunt valves. METHODS Magnetic field strength was measured as a function of distance for each hearing device (Cochlear Baha 5, Cochlear Baha BP110, Oticon Ponto Plus Power, and Medtronic Sophono) in the following modes: inactive, active in quiet, and active in 60 decibels of background noise in the sound booth...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to review the outcomes of Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA(®)) Attract implantation in a cohort of paediatric patients. METHODS: Prospective data collection and case review were undertaken in a paediatric tertiary referral centre. We have included patients under the age of 16 years with unilateral or bilateral hearing loss that met the criteria for BAHA(®) Attract implantation. The main outcome measures were surgical complications and Patient Reported Outcomes including the 'Speech, Spatial and Qualities of Hearing scale' (SSQ-12) and 'Qualitative Feedback for BAHA(®) 5 Hearing Aids'...

Propolis has been used to treat several diseases since ancient times, and is an important source of bioactive natural compounds and drug derivatives. These properties have kept the interest of investigators around the world, leading to the investigation of the chemical and biological properties and application of propolis. In this report, the chemical constituents that are responsible for the anticancer activities of propolis were analyzed. The propolis was sourced from Al-Baha in the southern part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia...

We included 9 patients implanted with Baha(®) Attract. All our patients were evaluated by free field tonal audiometry, free field verbal audiometry and free field verbal audiometry with background noise, all the tests were performed with and without the device. To evaluate the subjective component of the implantation, we used the Glasgow Benefit Inventory (GBI) and Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit (APHAB). The auditive assessment with the device showed average auditive thresholds of 35.8dB with improvements of 25...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of the internal auditory canal (IAC) and cochlea is of central importance in neurotology. The artefacts and visibility of active auditory implants on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) vary because of their specific magnetic components. Knowledge of the size of MRI artefacts and the options for handling them is important for the auditory rehabilitation of specific diseases (e. g., vestibular schwannoma). METHODS: The current article is a literature review...

OBJECTIVE: Bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA) are bone conduction hearing aids commonly implantated by Ear, Nose, and Throat surgeons. We present the first documented case of a subdural hematoma secondary to primary fixation of a BAHA. PATIENT: We present a 65-year-old male patient undergoing a left sided BAHA for bilateral chronic ear infections and difficulty wearing conventional hearing aids. The procedure was uneventful, however, the patient developed a postoperative large acute left temporoparietal intracerebral hematoma associated with an ipsilateral acute subdural hematoma...

OBJECTIVES: In 2016 NHS England published the commissioning policy on Bone Conducting Hearing Devices (BCHDs). This policy was informed by updated evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of BCHDs as well as by the 2013 Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) policy. Commissioning policies set the criteria for service delivery and therefore have a major impact on the care received by patients. It is important that stakeholders have a good appreciation of the available evidence informing policy, since this will promote engagement both with the policy as well as with future research leading on from the policy...

OBJECTIVE: The bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) Attract is a transcutaneous bone conduction hearing aid that uses magnetic coupling to enable sound conduction. We report the first case of skin necrosis associated with the BAHA Attract and perform a literature review of soft tissue complications related to the device. PATIENT: A single patient who was found to develop skin necrosis 2 weeks after being fitted for the BAHA Attract speech processor. INTERVENTION: After the patient developed skin necrosis from the device, she was advised to immediately discontinue use of the Attract to allow complete wound healing, upon which the Attract was successfully converted to a percutaneous BAHA...

Amol K Malshe, Baha M Sibai
Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific hypertensive disorder with multisystem involvement and is a significant cause of obstetric morbidity and mortality worldwide. A major issue in the treatment of preeclampsia stems from its still significant rates of misclassification and misdiagnosis. Angiogenic factors have been speculated as a possible diagnostic modality due to a perceived imbalance in angiogenesis in preeclampsia. Factors currently studied include soluble fms-like protein kinase 1 and placental growth factor...

Preeclampsia with severe features (SPE) remote from term remains a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide. With increasing diagnosis of SPE remote from term and improved methods for monitoring maternal and fetal well-being, several challenges have been made regarding management of preeclampsia. We reviewed the scientific literature of the diagnosis and outcome of SPE before 28 weeks. On the basis of this review, we will present our recommendations on management of SPE before 28 weeks' gestation...

REVIEW
Hind N Moussa, Mesk A Alrais, Mateo G Leon, Elizabeth L Abbas, Baha M Sibai
The obesity epidemic is on the rise throughout the USA and the world. Not only does it affect the general population but it also specifically poses unique threats to a woman's life in the antepartum, peripartum and postpartum periods. An increased BMI is associated with worse perinatal outcomes, including higher rates of preeclampsia (and other hypertensive disorders), macrosomia, other neonatal morbidities and gestational diabetes. Isolated maternal obesity and additional maternal diabetes predispose the infant to potential adult disease through fetal programming...
