Cochlear Implant Low Power Strategy

Reducing power consumption in the cochlear implant is crucial to the development of future smaller sound processors. The commercial MP3000 sound coding strategy has been shown to be more efficient in power consumption to the standard ACE strategy. However in order to develop smaller sound processors, further battery life power ...

Phase N/A

Wolfram Syndrome International Registry and Clinical Study

Background Wolfram syndrome (OMIM #222300) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (DM) in the first decade of life, followed by optic atrophy (OA), blindness, and deafness. Death from widespread neurodegeneration occurs in the third or fourth decades. Postmortem studies revealed a non-autoimmune loss of pancreatic ...

Phase N/A

Benefits of the HiResolution Bionic Ear System in Adults With Asymmetric Hearing Loss

The purpose of this feasibility study is to evaluate the benefit of unilateral implantation in adults who have severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss in one ear, and up to moderate sensorineural hearing loss in the other ear (asymmetric hearing loss).

Phase N/A

Auditive and Renal Long Term Outcomes - Risk After Aminoglycoside Therapy in Neonates (AURORA)

Gentamicin, in combination with a beta-lactam antibiotic, is commonly used for treatment of neonatal sepsis. Neonates have a high volume of distribution. It is a paradox that most neonatal dosing schedules still recommend lower gentamicin doses (4-5 mg/kg) than in older children ( 7 mg/kg). In the neonatal unit in ...

Phase N/A

Auditory Rehabilitation and Cognition in Alzheimer Patients

Alzheimer disease is a neurodegenerative disease. Recent studies suggest that subjects with hearing loss are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. Hearing loss can be consecutive to presbycusis and/or to central auditory dysfunction. Standard audiometric measures with pure tone and speech intelligibility allow the diagnosis of presbycusis. However, to demonstrate ...

Phase N/A

The Neuro Zti Cochlear Implant System Efficacy and Safety in Adults

The new cochlear implant system is indicated in individuals with serious hearing disabilities who do not obtain benefit from appropriately fitted hearing aid(s). Cochlear implant surgery is safe, but as with any surgery, possible issues or device related issues may occur. The risk benefit balance is well known in cochlear ...

Phase N/A

Enlarged Vestibular Aqueduct Registry

Study design The present study would employ a prospective questionnaire and retrospective chart review to develop a centralized registry of EVA patient information. The questionnaire would be administered using custom-designed software and an internet web site that uses secure information transfer protocol and encryption. Given authorization for the release of ...

Phase N/A

A Randomised Controlled Trial Comparing Bone Anchored Hearing Aid With Bonebridge

The new Bonebridge fully implanted, except for an external sound processor. It does not have any percutaneous parts like the Bone Anchored Hearing Aid. The investigators believe that this may improve wound healing and reduce problems with wound infection and skin overgrowth seen in Bone Anchored Hearing Aids. There may ...

Phase N/A

Auditory Midbrain Implant Study

Cochlear implants are used in the cochlea (part of the inner ear) where they send electrical signals for activation of the auditory nerve to restore hearing to deaf patients. For patients without a functioning auditory nerve, there is an auditory brainstem implant (ABI), which is placed on the surface of ...

Phase N/A

Cochlear Implant With Anti-Inflammatory Agent

In an effort to further preserve residual acoustic hearing after cochlear implantation, it may be beneficial to incorporate anti-inflammatory agents into the electrode array for passive elution over a time course after implantation. This study aims to assess the ease and effectiveness of such an electrode design, and to assess ...
