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, ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Analysis of Hereditary Disorders of Hearing and Balance

Hereditary hearing impairment is a genetically heterogeneous disorder that can be caused by mutations in any one of hundreds of different genes. Approximately 20 genes have now been identified in which mutations can cause nonsyndromic sensorineural hearing loss. The identification and analysis of these genes and their mutations are providing ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Anatomical Correlates of Speech Discrimination

Understanding speech is essential for good communication. Individuals with hearing loss and poor speech discrimination often have little success with hearing aids because amplifying sound improves audibility, but not clarity of the speech signal. The purpose of this study is to determine the relative importance of the sensory cells of ...

Phase N/A

Evaluating Hearing Aid Service Delivery Models

The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes for two different hearing-aid delivery models. In one model, the audiologist selects and fits the hearing aid and, in the other model, the consumer does this directly.

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...

Phase N/A

The Influence of The Ear Popper on Serous Otitis Media and on the Accompanying Conductive Hearing Loss in Children

This study is designed to check the effect of the use of the ear popper device on serous otitis media in children and on the conductive hearing loss accompanying the otitis. It is intended that 30 children aged 3-18 years will participate in the study. The inclusion criteria are : ...

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 ...

Carrier Frequency of a Recurring Mutation Causing Recessive Type VIII Osteogenesis Imperfecta in African-Americans and Contemporary West Africans

Classical osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), or brittle bone disease , is a well described autosomal dominant bone dysplasia caused by mutations in the genes encoding type I collagen, the major protein of bone matrix. However, genetic testing has shown that 10-15% of clinical OI is not caused by collagen defects. Furthermore, ...

Phase N/A

Risk Factors for Hearing Loss as a Result of Exposure to Noise During Military Training in the IDF

Auditory screening examination using an OAE (Oto Acoustic Emission) device during the first week of training in the unit and before starting to be exposed to noise . If the indication obtained by the OAE device is negative, the soldier will be transferred to perform an audiometer test by a ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Baha SoundArc in Pediatric Patients

Current Baha recipients that are using a Baha SoftBand will be recruited to be fitted with an alternative non-surgical option for using their Baha Sound Processor. The subjects will be tested with there existing Baha Sound Processor on the SoftBand and will then be fitted with the Baha SoundArc where ...
