Systematic Review of Pathogenic GJB2 Variants in the Latino Population
Conclusion: Variation in the prevalence of pathogenic GJB2 variants by country likely reflect the heterogeneous nature of ethnic ancestral contributions to the Latino population. Additional research utilizing next generation sequencing might aid in the development of assays for high throughput diagnosis of inherited hearing loss in the multitude of ethnic sub-groups that comprise this and other traditionally marginalized populations.

Authors: Crincoli V, Piancino MG, Iannone F, Errede M, Di Comite M Abstract Aims: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a connective tissue disease characterized by a wide range of pleomorphic pictures, including mucocutaneous, renal, musculoskeletal and neurological symptoms. It involves oral tissues, with hyposalivation, tooth decay, gingivitis, angular cheilitis, ulcers and glossitis. Temporomandibular disorders represent a heterogeneous group of inflammatory or degenerative diseases of the stomatognatic system, with algic and/or dysfunctional clinical features involving temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and related...
Conclusion: The endoscope offers an additional viable approach to the otic capsule for the removal of intracochlear schwannoma and good audiologic outcomes can be achieved with simultaneous cochlear implantation even after partial cochlectomy.
Conclusions: Rhythmic APT wave patterns are common and may be associated with numerous temporal bone pathologies that may present with objective tinnitus. APT is a simple, rapid, and widely available tool that warrants further study to determine its value in screening of these otologic conditions.
Conclusions and significance: The results of this study confirmed that the cochlear nucleus of the brainstem and above part of the brainstem may play an important role in the maintenance of tinnitus. PMID: 32049565 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions and significance: Two cases showed worse THI in both mixed hearing loss cases with a small hearing improvement. The mechanism of improvement is similar to tinnitus retraining therapy including hearing aid because the increase in external sound input through hearing restoration after surgery to avoid silence.

This is a very common condition that is thought to occur in up to 15% of people. It can occur in one or both ears, and often people will describe the sound as “coming from their head.” There are a variety of descriptions that people use for their tinnitus such as whooshing, ringing, pulsing, and/or buzzing, and the quality of the sound varies by individual.
