A new treatment algorithm for advanced otosclerosis, based on the clinical experience of Dutch investigators and supported by a literature review they conducted, suggests that the window for successful cochlear implantation (CI) in patients with severe disease is narrower than some otolaryngologists may believe .
Is residual hearing preserved after cochlear implantation with the suprameatal approach (SMA) technique? And, is there an alternative analysis to document the conservation of hearing more accurately? Background: The SMA is […]
Are otolaryngologists underdiagnosing EVA? Background: Enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) is the most commonly identified CT scan anomaly found in children with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Current radiographic criteria for EVA […]
