PURPOSE: Cross-cultural adaptation and translation of the Nijmegen Cochlear Implant Questionnaire (NCIQ) into Brazilian Portuguese and analysis of quality of life (QoL) results in adults with cochlear implant (CI). METHODS: The NCIQ instrument was translated into Brazilian Portuguese and culturally adapted. After that, a cross-sectional and clinical QoL evaluation was conducted with a group of 24 adults with CI. RESULTS: The questionnaire title in Brazilian Portuguese is 'Questionário Nijmegen de Implantes Cocleares' (NCIQ-P)...

OBJECTIVE: Identifying the main nursing diagnoses and interventions in children submitted to cochlear implant in the immediate postoperative period. METHOD: A cross-sectional study conducted between February and April 2016, considering nursing history (anamnesis and physical examination) and nursing diagnoses (NANDA - International) with their respective interventions (Nursing Intervention Classification - NIC). Descriptive statistical analysis was used to construct the results...

The aim of this study was to analyze the findings on Cortical Auditory Evoked Potentials in children with cochlear implant through a systematic literature review. After formulation of research question and search of studies in four data bases with the following descriptors: electrophysiology (eletrofisiologia), cochlear implantation (implante coclear), child (criança), neuronal plasticity (plasticidade neuronal) and audiology (audiologia), were selected articles (original and complete) published between 2002 and 2013 in Brazilian Portuguese or English...

PURPOSE: To identify and analyze factors that influence the participation of parents in the rehabilitation process of children with cochlear implants (CI). RESEARCH STRATEGY: Question formulation and articles selection in three databases using the following keywords: cochlear implant (implante coclear) and parents (pais). SELECTION CRITERIA: Complete original articles published in Brazilian Portuguese or English, with direct participation of parents of children with CI...

Pendred Syndrome (PS) is an autossomal recessive disorder characterized by sensorineural deafness, goiter and iodide organification defect. The hearing loss is associated with inner ear abnormalities, ranging from an isolated enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) to a typical coclear dysplasia. Mutations in the gene that encodes pendrin (SLC26A4), a chloride/iodide transporter, have been shown to be associated with PS. We describe the clinical and molecular characteristics of a large consanguineous family harboring a mutation in the SLC26A4 gene...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical approaches to petrous cholesteatomas are the translabyrinthine-transcochlear approach, partial labyrinthectomy, and the middle cranial fossa approach. Selection of surgical approach is determined by region of cholesteatoma in the petrous bone as well as preoperative status of hearing and facial nerve function. The middle cranial fossa approach is the best approach for patient having good preoperative hearing and facial nerve function. However, application of this approach is limited for patients having relatively small petrous cholesteatomas, and sometimes difficult for patients in whom inner ear function is preserved but a cholesteatoma surrounds whole cochlea and extends to lower part of the labyrinth...

The synthetic pentasaccharide Org 31540/SR 90107A represents the antithrombin III (ATIII) binding region of heparin and accelerates the ATIII-mediated inhibition of coagulation factor Xa. This compound and 15 structural analogues with ATIII binding constants (Kd) ranging from 2.7 to 2600 nmol/L were compared for their plasma elimination in rats as measured from their factor Xa inhibiting activity. After administration of a low dose (100 nmol/kg body wt IV), each pentasaccharide showed a characteristic plasma half-life varying from a minimum of 0...

We have correlated in 16 patients (32 ears), the modifications de EOEs before and after sound stimulation of the contralateral ear. The recording of the EOEs has been performed in a sound proof room with ILO 88 from Otodynamics Ltd., the analysis has been made with the ILO 88 V.3.5 software. We have tried to study the modulator rol of the medial efferent coclear system on the external ciliated cells. In the results we observe a decrease of the amplitude in the EOEs when the contralateralmears is stimulated a white noise, in relation with the nonstimulation situation...

The physiological formation of the action potentials is presumed to be well-known and a method of decoding these potential is therefore based on this knowledge. The method uses the reverse process, i.e. deconvolution of the recorded AP's with a unit response, and a subsequent nonlinear transformation of the obtained waveforms (sigma PST-compound PST) from the time- into the location domain (distance along the coclear partition). The transformed waveforms are called excitation patterns. Stimulus polarity seems to have only a minor influence on the excitaton patterns and it is possible to produce frquency-specific information of the coclear function...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)
