Abstract: This article presents an initial evaluation of a technique known as the Diary of Early Language (Di-EL), designed to obtain data about early lexical development in young children with profound hearing loss using cochlear implants, hearing aids, or both. The validity of the Di-EL, a parent report technique, was examined through comparisons with other measures of language development. Lexical data reported by parents using the Di-EL was found to agree with that reported by the same parents for the same children using the MacArthur Communicative Development Inventories (CDI), although some differences in the lexical items were noted. Rate of lexical acquisition on the Di-EL was found to correlate highly with that measured by the CDI and with expressive language skills as measured by the Rossetti Infant Toddler Language Scale, suggesting that the Di-EL is a valid measure of early lexical progress. These results are discussed with reference to other diary studies, along with research and clinical applications of the Di-EL. Subject Category: Hearing. Language. Speech.

Endolymphatic Sac-Vein Decompression for Intractable

Meniere's Disease: Long-Term Treatment Results.

Author(s): Ostrowski, V. B., Kartush, J. M. Source: Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. 128(4): 550-9. April, 2003. Availability: Available from American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. One Prince St., Alexandria, VA 22314-3357. (703) 836-4444. TTY: (703) 519-1585. Web site: www.entnet.org/. Language: English. Abstract: The authors report on a study designed to determine the long- term efficacy of endolymphatic sac-vein decompression surgery on patients with classic Meniere's disease. The study subjects included sixty- eight patients with classic Meniere's disease from a tertiary, private otology-neurotology practice. Patient data were gathered by retrospective chart review, questionnaire, and patient interview. All patients underwent endolymphatic sac-vein decompression with an average follow-up period of fifty-five months. The results showed median functional level at level before surgery improving to level 2 after surgery. Among the results reported eighty-one percent of patients showed improvement in functional level, 12 percent remained stable, and 7 percent declined. The authors conclude that endolymphatic sac-vein decompression surgery is a safe, nondestructive surgical option for Meniere's disease that offers durable control of vertigo and stabilization of hearing for the majority of symptomatic patients. According to the authors, the significance of the study is that the beneficial long-term outcome of the endolymphatic sac- vein decompression supports its continued use as a first-line treatment option in intractable Meniere's disease.
