BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: It has been suggested that central auditory processing dysfunction might precede the development of cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease (AD). The Dichotic Digits Test (DDT) has been proposed as a test of central auditory function. Our objective was to evaluate the predictive capacity of the DDT in conversion from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to dementia. METHODS: A total of 57 participants (26 females) with MCI were tested at baseline with pure tone audiometry, spe...

OBJECTIVE: The present study investigated the characteristics of visual processing in the auditory-associated cortex in adults with hearing loss using event-related potentials. METHODS: Ten subjects with bilateral postlingual hearing loss were recruited. Ten age- and sex-matched normal-hearing subjects were included as controls. Visual ("sound" and "non-sound" photos)-evoked potentials were performed. The P170 response in the occipital area as well as N1 and N2 responses in FC3 and FC4 were anal...

INTRODUCTION: Noise-induced hearing loss is the most preventable cause of auditory impairment. Periodic audiometric evaluations are essential to monitor the hearing health of noise-exposed workers. OBJECTIVE: To compare the evolution of audiometric thresholds in the initial three evaluations at frequencies of 3, 4, and 6 kHz in groups of workers exposed or not to noise. METHODS: In this historical cohort study, audiometric evaluations were obtained from male workers between 18 and 40 years of ag...

OBJECTIVES: The contact miniTM (CM) is a nonimplantable, digital bone conduction device (BCD) consisting of 2 isolated units: an electronic housing, including the microphone, and a vibrator housing. The study investigated whether the CM can be used as an alternative test device for a BCD trial in single-sided deaf (SSD) adults with the microphone placed at the SSD ear and the vibrator at the normal-hearing (NH) ear (i.e., cross position). METHODS: Twenty SSD adults (mean age: 50 [+/-13.2] years)...

INTRODUCTION: Meniere's disease (MD) is a disease of the inner ear. In Asian countries, there is one previous epidemiologic study that used a retrospective survey of a specific district. Previous studies have demonstrated that weather variables are strongly associated with symptom aggravation in MD. However, no study has reported on seasonal variation of MD. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective population-based study using the Korean national health insurance claims database (NHICD). In the pre...

BACKGROUND: The bone conduction implant (BCI) is an active transcutaneous bone conduction device where the transducer has direct contact to the bone, and the skin is intact. Sixteen patients have been implanted with the BCI with a planned follow-up of 5 years. This study reports on hearing, quality of life, and objective measures up to 36 months of follow-up in 10 patients. METHOD: Repeated measures were performed at fitting and after 1, 3, 6, 12, and 36 months including sound field warble tone ...

PURPOSE: To determine the contributions to hearing aid benefit of patient-reported outcomes and audiologic measures. METHODS: Independent review was conducted on audiologic and patient-reported outcomes of hearing aid benefit collected in the course of a middle ear implant FDA clinical trial. Unaided and aided data were extracted from the preoperative profiles of 95 experienced hearing aid users, and the relationships between a patient-reported outcome and audiologic measures were assessed. The ...
