  • Title : Hallym, Columbia, UCLA, Nagasaki and Uppsala experts discuss issues on Cochlear Implantation

content



  • Under the theme of 쏞ochlear Implantation and Related Technologies, the 14th Hallym-Columbia-Weill Cornell-NYP International Symposium was successfully held at Hallym University Dongtan Sacred Heart Hospital on March 17, 2017.


    The symposium attracted nearly 130 participants, including 12 speakers from 4 different countries, who joined the meeting to share expert knowledge on cochlear implantation.


    At the opening ceremony, Dr. Kyung-Soon Hong, Dean for Hallym University College of Medicine welcomed all participants and said, 쏻ith the arrival of a new era of the fourth industrial revolution, innovative technological advances are being made in the field of medicine as well. At this moment, it should be very meaningful to share knowledge and experience on cochlear implantation together with experts around the world.


    Prominent scholars in this field including Prof. Lawrence R. Lustig from Columbia University, Prof. Helge Rask-Andersen from Uppsala University, Prof. Akira Ishiyama and Prof. Sung K. Moon from UCLA, and Prof. Haruo Takahashi from Nagasaki University gave presentations and led discussions which covered various topics, both basic and clinical ones.






    The symposium was comprised of three sessions and 15 lectures. The topics of the first session were 쁂ochlear implantation for single sided deafness, 쁂ortical plasticity and cochlear implant potentialities in single side deafness, 쁁ilateral cochlear implantation for children – Nagasaki experience, 쁓urgical considerations for cochlear implantation, and 쁂ochlear implantation in children with cochlear nerve deficiency and/or inner ear malformations.


    In Session 2, participants discussed on 쁇earing loss and rehabilitation – from the perspective of deaf brain, 쁃amage of inner ear hair cells and its prevention – auditory cell line culture, 쁈mmunological role of cochlear fibrocytes, 쁁imodal fitting of hearing devices – Candidacy & Method, and 쁔he human cochlear including surgical aspects – fine structure and immunohistochemistry with super-resolution structured-illumination microscopy (SR-SIM).




    The last session covered some topics of related technologies, which were 쁔he role of cochlear implantation as a solution for intractable tinnitus, 쁂ochlear implantation in chronic otitis media cases, 쁇uman temporal bone histopathology in hearing preservation for cochlear implantation, 쁇earing preservation CI, and 쁂ochlear implants – Can we do better?.




    Dr. Hae-Ran Lee, President of Hallym University Medical Center said, 쏶ince the invention of cochlear implant, there has been remarkable development in this technology as well as the expansion of surgical targets and treatment field. She added, 쏷hrough the academic collaboration like this, we will be able to improve the quality of life in patients with hearing loss.
