1. The ages of suspicion, diagnosis, amplification, and intervention in deaf children.
Match Strength: 4.990
OBJECTIVES: The present study sought to determine the average ages of suspicion, diagnosis, and amplification of profound hearing loss and intervention in deaf children and to compare at-risk and not-at-risk children based on the studied ages. METHODS: This study was conducted on 86 children under 6 years of age with profound bilateral hearing loss in Newsha Aural Rehabilitation Center in Tehran from July to December 2005. Data were gathered through the completion of a questionnaire by the children's parents, and the children's medical and rehabilitative records were utilized in order to ... Read More »

2. Mothers' stress and expectations as a function of time since child's cochlear implantation.
Match Strength: 3.963
This study examined stress, attitudes, and expectations among mothers of deaf children who underwent cochlear implantation (CI), as related to time elapsed since surgery. Participants were 64 mothers of such children at different points in the implantation process: candidates, 0-3 years postimplantation, and more than 3 years later. Expectations in communication and academic domains decreased as time since implantation passed. No differences emerged in stress levels between the 3 groups. Higher levels of mothers' and fathers' education correlated with lower stress levels. Older mothers ... Read More »

3. Experience with surgical management of cholesteatomas.
Match Strength: 3.582
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate long-term results after at least 10 years of follow-up for a common method of ear surgery for managing cholesteatomas. METHODS: This retrospective study was performed by assessing the medical records of adult patients who underwent canal-wall-down mastoidectomy for management of cholesteatomas. RESULTS: From January 1, 1989, through December 31, 1995, 148 patients underwent surgery for cholesteatoma. Of these, 72 (48%) were treated by using the canal-wall-down method. During follow-up (10-16 years), 5 (7%) patients underwent at least 1 revision operation. Ten years after ... Read More »

4. Cross-modal reorganization and speech perception in cochlear implant users.
Match Strength: 3.003
Recent work suggests that once the auditory cortex of deaf persons has been reorganized by cross-modal plasticity, it can no longer respond to signals from a cochlear implant (CI) installed subsequently. To further examine this issue, we compared the evoked potentials involved in the processing of visual stimuli between CI users and hearing controls. The stimuli were concentric circles replaced by a different overlapping shape, inducing a shape transformation, known to activate the ventral visual pathway in human adults. All CI users had their device implanted for >1 year, but obtained ... Read More »
