Audiological and clinical outcomes of a transcutaneous bone conduction hearing implant: Six ‐month results from a multicentre study

ConclusionsThe Baha Attract System provided a significant improvement in hearing performance and subjective benefit compared to the pre ‐operative unaided condition (with the non‐test ear blocked). Hearing performance of the Baha Attract was similar to a test situation with the same sound processor on a softband. A proportion of the patients reported numbness and pain/discomfort at the implant site during follow‐up, especially during the first post‐operative weeks. Based on the results of the current multicentre study, the Baha Attract can be considered as a treatment option for patients with the aforementioned hearing losses. Especially in the SSD patients, a careful selection procedure is warranted. Therefore, a pre‐ operative trial should be part of the decision‐making proce...

National estimations of airway foreign bodies in children in the United States, 2000 to 2009

ConclusionsOur findings confirm previous findings and identified that the diagnosis of airway foreign bodies in children were associated with male gender, age less than five years old, lack of private insurance, and geographic location in an urban setting. Further investigation may be warranted to provide clarity on other factors found to have increased association with mortality for quality improvement.This article is protected by copyright.

Laryngeal stroboscopy —Normative values for amplitude, open quotient, asymmetry and phase difference in young adults

ConclusionsThe study provides normative values for LS in young adults for the measurement of therapy outcomes in patients with voice disorders and realisation of evidence ‐based medicine. The LS parametrisation is easy to perform in clinical practice. (Source: Clinical Otolaryngology)
