The Auditory steady state evoked response (ASSR)

The Auditory steady state evoked response (ASSR) is a brain response elicited by a continuous or steady state acoustic stimulus. ASSRs are evoked by modulated tonal stimuli and provide frequency – specific measures of hearing sensitivity across a wide rage of frequencies (250 to 8000 Hz). The primary clinical application for Auditory Steady-State Evoked Response is for detailed frequency-specific hearing assessment in babies. Since ASSR measures electrophysiological responses to sounds, it allows us to objectively assess how well a subject hears. This is especially useful in patients who are unable or unwilling to give reliable behavioral responses. ASSR can be reliably recorded in sleeping neonates and children.

They are evoked by frequency-specific tonal stimuli, can be detected objectively using statistical algorithms, have thresholds that are highly correlated with behavioral audiogram thresholds, and can be used to estimate the behavioral pure tone audiogram.  The estimated audiograms obtained from ASSR testing provide a basis for determining whether the child requires a cochlear implant or not.

 
 
Otology Master Class
From the Organizing desk

Dear friends,

MESIARC CME is here again. We have always strived to bring you the best in Otology, over the past 10 years, Our live surgery workshops, have focused on cutting edge surgery, detailed teaching, scientific deliberations of the highest order and top class video coverage from one of the most advanced otological theatre suites in the world this time, we are focusing on the enigma of budding otologists - cholesteatoma and Otosclerosis. Two very diverse conditions, but requiring surgical expertise of the highest order to deliver good results. The two-day surgical workshops will feature both myself and a luminary in Otology, Dr. Ashesh Bhumker from Thane, Mumbai and we would be demonstrating in detail the finer aspects of surgical techniques that can be adapted by a keen otologist to sustain good results over time.

We have lined up an array of diverse cases- and the techniques that we intend to demonstrate include minimal access stapedotomy, Laser stapes surgery, stapes surgery with stapes head amputation for tendon preservation, bone obliteration technique for cholesteatoma, a variety of grafting techniques, intact canal wall tympanoplasty for limited cholesteatoma and a series of revision surgeries.

Do send in your registrations early as we have to limit attendance to 70 seats. A smaller crowd is ideal for active discussions which is something so characteristic of MESIARC CME programs and we do not want to deviate from that agenda.


Yours truly,

Manoj MP

Otology in Perspective Live Surgery 2015
From the Organizing desk

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

Otologic surgery is special for its intricate anatomy, extreme precision and attention to detail. Traditionally done with the operating microscope, and now in some centers across the world with the endoscope, the repetoire of the art is widening.

Confusion persists. Advocates of endoscopic work claim that the microscope is passe, and traditional surgeons laugh off the ability of the one handed

The truth lies somewhere in between; there are specific conditions that require either of both of the techniques. Dogmatism, they say, is the end of science.

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

MESIARC has always stood for dissipation of knowledge and the live surgical workshops are not pubilicity events, nor are they grandiose. We have just one agenda- to educate.

This workshop with a difference aims to demonstrate both endoscopic and microsopic skills in otologic surgery, while attempting to define which is more suitable for what. Do come and enjoy!


Yours truly,

Manoj MP  
Organizing chairman
