Değerli Meslektaşlarım, Bilimsel topluluklar için bir buluşma noktası olan kongreler, bilgi alışverişinin yanı sıra mesleki gelişim için de önemli fırsatlar sunar. İstanbul Yeni Yüzyıl Üniversitesi olarak, bu yıl dördüncüsünü gerçekleştirdiğimiz Otoloji ve Odyoloji Kongresi'ne ev sahipliği yapmanın onurunu yaşamaktayız. COVID-19'un hala günlük yaşantımızda varlığını sürdürmesi nedeniyle, kongremizi sanal ortamda düzenlemenin sorumluluğunu üstlendik. 20-21 Mayıs 2023 tarihlerinde gerçekleşen kongremizde, Otoloji ve Odyoloji alanlarında uzman hocalarımız tarafından paneller ve sözlü sunumlar yapıldı.


Functional Head Impulse Test and Suppression Head Impulse Paradigm in Evaluation of the Vestibular System

The tasks of receiving, processing, and converting sensory data into motor outputs through the vestibular system, proprioceptive system, and visual system are balanced in the system performance. This study aims to present research on vestibular tests created recently to assess the vestibular system and its clinical applications. The differential diagnosis of vestibular diseases mostly relies on vestibular tests such as anamnesis and physical examination. The vestibular system can now be analyzed in more detail thanks to the vestibular test batteries created as a result of technological advancements. The Functional Head Impulse Test (fHIT) and the Suppression Head Impulse Paradigm (SHIMP) are both vestibular tests that have been developed and have begun to be used recently.

Prevention Strategies and Treatment Modalities of Presbycusis

Presbycusis, known as hearing loss associated with aging, reduces the quality of life significantly by affecting the social, psychological and behavioral conditions of people. The severity of presbycusis, which affects men more frequently, increases with the age. Noise exposure, genetic, ototoxic drugs and oxidative stress are the most emphasized etiological factors. The severity of hearing loss in presbycusis may vary depending on factors such as age, gender and genetic reasons. Since there is no definitive treatment for presbycusis, preventive precautions are the best strategies. Using personal protective equipments in noisy environments, controlling systemic diseases and avoiding ototoxic drugs are the some precautions to prevent presbycusis.

Founding A Cochlear Implant Program: Challenges And Solutions

Cochlear implantation (CI), the first choice for hearing recovery in patients with severe and profound sensorineural hearing loss, requires a team in multidisciplinary sciences with an unremitting process. Although the surgery is performed in specialized Otorhinolaryngology clinics, ongoing support from non-clinical disciplines is also received. Each of the preoperative and postoperative steps requires a unique care and scientific approach. This paper studies the requirements for setting up an adequate and ongoing cochlear implant program.

Assessment of Patients with Peripheral Facial Paralysis

Objective: We aim to systematically analyze the sociodemographic and medical records of patients presenting to our clinic diagnosed with peripheral facial palsy (PFP). Materials and Methods: Between January 2020 and December 2023, we retrospectively examined the sociodemographic and medical records of patients diagnosed with PFP and treated and followed up in our clinic. The study included fifty patients diagnosed with PFP and excluded those with central facial paralysis. Data obtained from patients' medical records included demographic information, habits, etiological factors, comorbid conditions, time of hospital admission, season of presentation, predominant symptom, paralysis degree expressed through House-Brackman scoring, affected area of the face, audiologic findings, recurrence situations, and hematological and blood glucose results at the time of admission.

Hearing Loss Risk Factors and AABR Test Results in National Newborn Hearing Screenings

Aim: Early hearing loss detection and intervention aim to enable children with hearing difficulties to complete their language development without falling behind their peers and to prevent their academic success from being negatively affected. For this reason, the Automated Auditory Brainstem Responses (AABR) test, which has been applied in recent years, is considered the gold standard for newborn hearing screening. This study aimed to determine the relationship between risk factors and infants who failed the screening ABR test in hearing screening of newborn infants.
