The clinical investigation is designed as a prospective repeated measures longitudinal study with intra-subject controls, using a selection of subjective evaluation tools to assess patient related benefits from hearing implant treatment of permanent hearing loss. Clinically standard self-assessment scales, threshold measures and a general hearing history profile questionnaires for the ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

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 ...

Benefits of the HiResolutionTM Bionic Ear System in Adults With Low-Frequency Hearing

The goal of this investigation is to generate the needed PMCF data for the HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode. As a point of interest the investigators would like to evaluate the benefit to patients with low-frequency residual hearing implanted with the HiFocus Mid-Scala Electrode. The HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode array is designed to ...

Epidemiological Clinical and Etiological Features of SUSAC's Syndrome

SUSAC's Syndrome (SS) is characterized by the clinical triad of encephalopathy, hearing loss, and retinal artery branch occlusions. Since the first description of SS in 1979, hundreds of patients with SS, mostly young women, have been reported. However, comprehensive epidemiological, clinical and etiological features of SS have never been specifically ...

Evaluation of the Benefits for Overall Health Following Cochlear Implant Treatment in the Elderly Population

The study is designed as an observational prospective repeated measures study with each subject acting as his/her own control. Subjects are evaluated subjectively at pre- and post-operative intervals that coincide with their routine visits to the clinic. Outcomes from routine practice and application of cochlear implant intervention are recorded through ...

Designing a Trial of Bilateral Cochlear Implantation in Adults

The study design comprises focus groups, online surveys, a trial design workshop, a manufacturer's forum, and a care pathway working group. Focus groups Two focus groups will be conducted to explore issues around the acceptability of the two-arm trial recommended by NICE. The recruitment strategy will target both individuals who ...

Phase N/A

Outcome Prediction in Cochlear Implant Recipients

The ability to predict post-operative outcomes after implantation is important for a number of reasons, including being able to advise candidates of appropriate expectations using evidence based guidance. The approved study involves investigation of the ability to predict outcomes in the implanted ear alone and in the best-aided binaural listening ...
