Alport Syndrome Treatments and Outcomes Registry

Detailed Description: ASTOR is envisioned as a permanent organization sustained by private philanthropic and public funding sources. Recruitment of participants for the registry will consist of three approaches. First, pediatric nephrologists in the United States and Canada will be invited to participate in ASTOR. Activities of participating investigators will include ...

European Alport Therapy Registry - European Initiative Towards Delaying Renal Failure in Alport Syndrome

Early diagnosis in children with Alport syndrome (AS) with isolated hematuria opens a "window of opportunity" for early intervention. Currently there are no causal therapeutic options which are proven to delay renal failure in AS. ACE-inhibition (ACEi) has been shown to reduce proteinuria in Alport patients and to delay renal ...

Changes in the Threshold of Electrically Evoked Compound Action Potential in Children Following Cochlear Implantation

After cochlear implantation, cochlear nerve is stimulated by giving a current over the electrodes placed in the cochlea and the current is measured by electrically evoked Compound Action Potential (ECAP).This ECAP is measured intra operatively, 4 weeks(at switch on) and after 3months and 6 months following cochlear implantation. Neural Response ...

Cochlear Implantation in Pediatric Cases of Unilateral Hearing Loss

Unilateral hearing loss (UHL) is a term used to describe a substantial hearing loss in one ear and normal hearing in the contralateral ear. Despite normal hearing in one ear, these individuals experience reduced speech perception in noise, variable abilities on localization tasks, increased reports of hearing handicap, reduced quality ...

Clinical and Genetic Analysis of Enlarged Vestibular Aqueducts

Nonsyndromic hereditary hearing impairment is a genetically heterogeneous disorder that can be caused by mutations in any one of at least 60 different genes. Enlargement of the vestibular aqueduct (EVA) is a radiologic finding known to be associated with mutations in one of these genes, the Pendred syndrome gene (SLC26A4, ...

Genetic Studies of Strabismus Congenital Cranial Dysinnervation Disorders (CCDDs) and Their Associated Anomalies

If left untreated or unrecognized, strabismus or misalignment of the eyes, can impair the development of normal vision and is recognized to be an inherited trait in some families. The Engle Lab has investigated the genetics of complex and common strabismus and eyelid movement disorders for over 10 years and ...

Phase N/A

Use of Amplification in Children With Unilateral Hearing Loss

Unilateral hearing loss (UHL) is defined as decreased hearing in one ear, with normal hearing thresholds in the contralateral ear. Approximately 0.83/1000 newborn children are found to have UHL. It is estimated that about 3-5% of all children in the United States are eventually diagnosed with UHL. When the cutoff ...

Phase N/A

Cochlear Implantation for Treatment of Single-sided Deafness

The goal of this study is to further investigate the role of CI in treating unilateral hearing loss and associated tinnitus. Single-sided deafness (SSD) afflicts approximately 60,000 new patients per year in the United States. The most common causes of these single-sided losses are sudden sensorineural hearing loss, Meniere's disease, ...

Phase N/A

Aural Rehabilitation for Cochlear Implant Users Via Telerehab Technology

Aural rehabilitation training (AR) has been demonstrated to improve outcomes for adult cochlear implant users. There are both financial and non-financial barriers to AR service delivery including accessibility (mobility, distance and transportation problems), accommodation (time off work impossible, caring for family) and availability (limited providers in rural areas, financial constraints, ...

Phase N/A

Dental Malocclusion and Craniofacial Development in OI

Investigators will look at dental health in people with OI and will describe teeth misalignment and head and neck defects in individuals with moderate to severe Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). Investigators will look at results from the Longitudinal study of OI to complete the study evaluations. Several x-rays will be performed ...
