Bauer P, Geers A, Brenner C, Moog J, Smith RJ: The effect of GJB2 Allele Variants on Performance after Cochlear Implantation
Auditory brainstem implant as a salvage treatment after unsuccessful cochlear implantation
in children under the age of two--what do the outcomes show us?
This edition includes a review of pediatric cochlear implantation
, updated coverage of genetic developments that impact congenital hearing loss, discussion of recent controversies regarding tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, and coverage of new subspecialties like airway reconstruction and voice.
These findings indicate that cochlear implantation
has a positive effect on certain psycho-social domains.
A three- to six-month trial with hearing aids is typically recommended with intensive auditory training therapy prior to approval for cochlear implantation
It is important to consider these findings and their relevance to individuals with prelingual severe-to-profound hearing loss who consider cochlear implantation
Mr Cooper, said: "This book will provide up-to-date facts and information on cochlear implantation
Forty-six chapters address such topics as imaging of the temporal bone, cochlear implantation
, and neurectomy procedures for vertigo.
Parental expectations relating to the success of cochlear implantation
are considered so important that decisions about postponement, rejection, and selection of children for implantation have been based on these expectations," said Thomas Nikolopoulos, MD of the University Hospital in Nottingham, UK.
The paper's first author, Efrat Schorr, who was earning her PhD from the University of Maryland when the study was done, emphasized that their findings demonstrate just one of the influences that early cochlear implantation
can have on children with hearing loss and it reinforces the importance of early detection and intervention for children with hearing loss.
Tenders are invited for purchase and supply of hearing aids (bte digital - lotus pro p 161 nos, lotus pro sp 168 nos and spare parts of cochlear implantation
for 2 children.
