Abstract: In this chapter of the book Otosclerosis and Stapedectomy: Diagnosis, Management, and Complications the authors discuss cochlear otosclerosis. According to the authors this disorder is known also as sensorineural hearing loss with otosclerosis, because the cause-and- effect relationship is unclear. The authors introduce the chapter with a definition of cochlear otosclerosis and follow up in the chapter with discussions about incidence, symptoms, specialized tests, characteristics, diagnosis, treatment and more. The authors conclude the chapter with a summary and references. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Otolaryngology. Otology. Audiology. Audiological Evaluation. Cochlear Otosclerosis.

Abstract: In this chapter of the book Otosclerosis and Stapedectomy: Diagnosis, Management, and Complications the authors discuss the role of laser revision stapedectomy. This approach, the authors say, has greatly improved results in terms of hearing and reduced the incidence of permanent sensorineural hearing loss (SHL). The pros and cons of types of lasers are discussed and compared. The chapter concludes with a summary and references. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Otolaryngology. Otology. Audiology.

Speech Perception Results for Children Using Cochlear

Implants Who Have Additional Special Needs.

Author(s): Dettman, S. J. Source: In: The Volta Review: Multiple Challenges-Multiple Solutions: Children with Hearing Loss and Special Needs. Perigoe, C.B.; Perigoe, R., Eds. Washington, DC. The Volta Review 104(4):361-392. 2004. Availability: Available from the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Publications Department, 3417 Volta Place, NW, Washington, DC 20007. (202) 337-5220 or (202) 337-5221 (TTY). Website: www.agbell.org. Language: English. Abstract: Speech perception outcomes in young children with cochlear implants are affected by numerous variables, including the age of implantation, duration of implantation, mode of communications, and the presence of a developmental delay or additional disability. This chapter describes a study that examined the association between degree of developmental delay and speech perception outcomes for a group of young children using cochlear implants. Forty-nine children who received cochlear implants at a hospital in Melbourne, Australia, between 1993 and 2001 were assessed by an educational psychologist. Children were grouped according to cognitive development level. Twenty-seven children in group one had normal cognitive development. Fourteen children, who were placed in group two, had mild cognitive developmental delay. The remaining eight children, who were placed in group three, had severe cognitive delay. Results suggest that there was a significant association between cognitive development and speech perception based on the categorical scale of outcomes. There was insufficient data available from the formal speech perception test scores for children with a range of cognitive delay to enable valid statistical analysis. However, clinical observations suggest that these children did benefit from the cochlear implant. Thus, the presence of cognitive delay should not preclude children from being considered for receiving cochlear implants. The degree of cognitive impairment should be evaluated carefully to assist the provision of counseling regarding expectations for language development. 2 figures, 1 table. 76 references. (AA-M).

Availability: Correspondence can be addressed to HR or William Dolphin, PhD, Sonamed Corp, 1250 Main St, Waltham, MA 02451. E- mail: wdolphin@SonaMed.com. Language: English. Abstract: The two-stage hearing screening approach, which utilizes both otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) and auditory brainstem response (ABR), allows the detection of those infants with auditory neuropathy and configured hearing loss. screening approach, recommended by the National Institutes of Health in the 1993 NIH Consensus Statement, has emerged as the preferred protocol and has been widely implemented with considerable success. This approach identifies the overwhelming majority
