HYPOTHESIS: Preimplantation word scores cannot reliably predict postimplantation outcomes. BACKGROUND: To date, there is no model based on preoperative data that can reliably predict the postoperative outcomes of cochlear implantation in the postlingually deafened adult patient. METHODS: In a group of 228 patients who received a cochlear implant between 2002 and 2021, we tested the predictive power of nine variables (age, etiology, sex, laterality of implantation, preimplantation thresholds and word scores, as well as the design, insertion approach, and angular insertion depth of the electrode array) on postimplantation outcomes...

HYPOTHESIS: Cyclodextrin (CDX)-induced serum prestin burst is not dependent on outer hair cell (OHC) loss. BACKGROUND: Serum prestin has been proposed as a biomarker for ototoxicity. We recently used an automated Western approach to quantify serum prestin changes in a newly introduced model of CDX ototoxicity. To gain insights into prestin as a biomarker, here we further characterize serum prestin in the CDX model. METHODS: Guinea pigs were treated with 750, 3,000, or 4,000 mg/kg CDX, and serum samples were obtained through up to 15 weeks after exposure...

OBJECTIVE: Severely asymmetrical hearing loss (SAHL) is characterized by a moderately severe or severe hearing loss in one side and normal or mildly impaired controlateral hearing in the other. The Active tri-CROS combines the Contralateral Routing-of-Signal System (CROS, or BiCROS if the best ear is stimulated) and the stimulation of the worst ear by an in-the-canal hearing aid. This study aims to evaluate the benefit of the Active tri-CROS for SAHL patients. STUDY DESIGN: This retrospective study was conducted from September 2019 to December 2020...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Burcu Deniz, Rışvan Deniz, Ahmet Ataş
HYPOTHESIS: The behaviorally based programming with loudness balancing (LB) would result in better speech understanding, spectral-temporal resolution, and music perception scores, and there would be a relationship between these scores. BACKGROUND: Loudness imbalances at upper stimulation levels may cause sounds to be perceived as irregular, gravelly, or overly echoed and may negatively affect the listening performance of the cochlear implant (CI) user. LB should be performed after fitting to overcome these problems...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to examine the influence of electrode array design on the position of the basal-most electrode in cochlear implant (CI) surgery and therefore the stimulability of the basal cochlea. Specifically, we evaluated the angular insertion depth of the basal-most electrode in perimodiolar and straight electrode arrays in relation to postoperative speech perception. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 495 patients between 2013 and 2018 using the Cochlear™ Contour Advance® (CA), Cochlear™ Slim Straight® (SSA), or Cochlear™ Slim Modiolar® (SMA) electrode arrays, as well as the MED-EL Flex24 (F24), MED-EL Flex28 (F28), and MED-EL FlexSoft (F31...

INTRODUCTION: For the diagnosis of Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD), clinical procedures such as tympanometry, micro-otoscopy, and maneuvers according to Toynbee and Valsalva only allow an indirect assessment for the moment. With a prevalence of up to 5%, the selection of patients with ETD and its subtypes is clinically relevant. Dynamic methods of Eustachian tube function assessment include a hypo/hyperbaric pressure chamber and Estève's tubomanometer (TMM). One method of assessing ETD is the evaluation of Eustachian tube opening pressure (ETOP)...
