1 Review Aberrant internal carotid artery causing objective pulsatile tinnitus and conductive hearing loss. 2012

Song, Yue-Shuai / Yuan, Yong-Yi / Wang, Guo-Jian / Dai, Pu / Han, Dong-Yi. ·Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China. ·Acta Otolaryngol · Pubmed #22779753.

ABSTRACT: Aberrant internal carotid artery (ICA) in the middle ear is a rare, dangerous vascular anomaly and conservative follow-up was usually adopted in most reported cases. Here we report the case of an 8-year-old girl with symptoms of objective pulsatile tinnitus and conductive hearing loss in the right ear. Otoscopic examination, computed tomography, and conventional angiography were performed. An aberrant ICA combined with a 'third mobile window' was suspected preoperatively and confirmed at exploratory surgery of the middle ear. The aberrant ICA was treated, and the pulsatile tinnitus disappeared and hearing recovered after the surgery. This case suggests that surgery is practical to relieve troublesome tinnitus and hearing loss in appropriate cases with aberrant ICA.

2 Article Congenital middle ear abnormalities with absence of the oval window: diagnosis, surgery, and audiometric outcomes. 2014

Su, Yu / Yuan, Hu / Song, Yue-shuai / Shen, Wei-dong / Han, Wei-ju / Liu, Jun / Han, Dong-yi / Dai, Pu. ·Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, The PLA General Hospital, Beijing, People's Republic of China. ·Otol Neurotol · Pubmed #24662631.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE: Congenital absence of the oval window (CAOW) is a rare condition in which the stapes footplate fails to develop, resulting in a significant conductive hearing loss in the affected ear. The purpose of this study was to describe the surgical management and outcomes of patients with CAOW undergoing the oval window drill-out (OWD) procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review of patients with CAOW between 1996 and 2011 was performed. Clinical data of patients who underwent OWD were collected. Seventy-nine patients (103 ears) were confirmed using exploratory tympanotomy as having congenital stapes anomalies and CAOW without any anomalies of the tympanic membrane and external auditory canal. Demographic data, CT findings, operative findings, complications, and preoperative/postoperative audiometry data of patients who underwent OWD were collected. The preoperative and postoperative audiologic findings were analyzed in 42 patients (56 ears) with complete data. RESULTS: Hearing restoration surgery was aborted for various reasons in 14 cases. Six patients underwent revision operations for worsening hearing after their first surgery. The average preoperative 4 tone air conduction threshold was 67 dB; the average 6-month postoperative four tone air conduction threshold was 49 dB, and the average postoperative hearing gain was 18 dB. For the 56 ears, the average 4 tone air conduction threshold 6 months after surgery was significantly lower than the preoperative threshold. CONCLUSION: The oval window drill-out procedure is a viable operation for patients with congenital absence of the oval window, and it is important for surgeons to develop personalized treatment programs to improve patients' hearing with minimal complications.

ABSTRACT: TECTA-related deafness can be inherited as autosomal-dominant nonsyndromic deafness (designated DFNA) or as the autosomal-recessive version. The α-tectorin protein, which is encoded by the TECTA gene, is one of the major components of the tectorial membrane in the inner ear. Using targeted DNA capture and massively parallel sequencing (MPS), we screened 42 genes known to be responsible for human deafness in a Chinese family (Family 3187) in which common deafness mutations had been ruled out as the cause, and identified a novel mutation, c.257-262CCTTTC>GCT (p. Ser86Cys; p. Pro88del) in exon 3 of the TECTA gene in the proband and his extended family. All affected individuals in this family had moderate down-sloping hearing loss across all frequencies. To our knowledge, this is the second TECTA mutation identified in Chinese population. This study demonstrates that targeted genomic capture, MPS, and barcode technology might broaden the availability of genetic testing for individuals with undiagnosed DFNA.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Inherited genetic defects play an important role in congenital hearing loss, contributing to about 60% of deafness occurring in infants. Hereditary nonsyndromic hearing loss is highly heterogeneous, and most patients with a presumed genetic etiology lack a specific molecular diagnosis. METHODS: By whole exome sequencing, we identified responsible gene of family 4794 with autosomal recessively nonsyndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL). We also used DNA from 56 Chinese familial patients with ARNSHL (autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss) and 108 ethnicity-matched negative samples to perform extended variants analysis. RESULTS: We identified MYO15A c.IVS25+3G>A and c.8375 T>C (p.V2792A) as the disease-causing mutations. Both mutations co-segregated with hearing loss in family 4794, but were absent in the 56 index patients and 108 ethnicity-matched controls. CONCLUSIONS: Our results demonstrated that the hearing loss of family 4794 was caused by novel compound heterozygous mutations in MYO15A.

5 Article Novel compound heterozygous TMC1 mutations associated with autosomal recessive hearing loss in a Chinese family. 2013

Gao, Xue / Su, Yu / Guan, Li-Ping / Yuan, Yong-Yi / Huang, Sha-Sha / Lu, Yu / Wang, Guo-Jian / Han, Ming-Yu / Yu, Fei / Song, Yue-Shuai / Zhu, Qing-Yan / Wu, Jing / Dai, Pu. ·Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, PLA General Hospital, Beijing, PR China. ·PLoS One · Pubmed #23690975.

ABSTRACT: Hereditary nonsyndromic hearing loss is highly heterogeneous and most patients with a presumed genetic etiology lack a specific diagnosis. It has been estimated that several hundred genes may be associated with this sensory deficit in humans. Here, we identified compound heterozygous mutations in the TMC1 gene as the cause of recessively inherited sensorineural hearing loss by using whole-exome sequencing in a family with two deaf siblings. Sanger sequencing confirmed that both siblings inherited a missense mutation, c.589G>A p.G197R (maternal allele), and a nonsense mutation, c.1171C>T p.Q391X (paternal allele), in TMC1. We also used DNA from 50 Chinese familial patients with ARNSHL and 208 ethnicity-matched negative samples to perform extended variants analysis. Both variants co-segregated in family 1953, which had the hearing loss phenotype, but were absent in 50 patients and 208 ethnicity-matched controls. Therefore, we concluded that the hearing loss in this family was caused by novel compound heterozygous mutations in TMC1.

6 Article Phenotype and genotype of deaf patients with combined genomic and mitochondrial inheritance models. 2013

Huang, Shasha / Wang, Guojian / Jiang, Yi / Yuan, Yongyi / Han, Dongyi / Song, Yueshuai / Dai, Pu. ·Department of Otolaryngology, PLA General Hospital, Beijing 100853, People's Republic of China; Department of Otolaryngology, Hainan Branch of PLA General Hospital, Haitang Bay, Sanya 572000, People's Republic of China. ·Mitochondrion · Pubmed #23688906.

ABSTRACT: In most studies, sensorineural hearing loss is reported as a single-gene disease with autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive or with X-linked or maternal inheritance. It is uncommon that the hearing impairment is caused by a combined inheritance model including genomic and mitochondrial models. Here, we report six patients with sensorineural hearing loss caused by co-existing mutations in GJB2 or SLC26A4 and the mitochondrial gene. And there was no significant difference in hearing phenotypes between the six patients and the controls. The results indicate the complicated genetic etiology of, and may impact the diagnostic strategy for, hereditary hearing impairment. All patient siblings will carry mitochondrial DNA A1555G or C1494T mutations, and 25% of siblings may carry the same homozygous or compound heterozygote mutations in GJB2 or SLC26A4. Although this combined inheritance is not common in the Chinese deaf population (0.10%), our findings will have great impact in genetic counseling and risk prediction for deafness.

7 Article Sensorineural hearing loss caused by mutations in two alleles of both GJB2 and SLC26A4 genes. 2013

Huang, Shasha / Han, Dongyi / Wang, Guojian / Yuan, Yongyi / Song, Yueshuai / Han, Mingyu / Chen, Zhengyi / Dai, Pu. ·Department of Otolaryngology, PLA General Hospital, Beijing, PR China. ·Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol · Pubmed #23266159.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Most studies of the molecular etiology of sensorineural hearing loss have described deafness as a monogenic disease encompassing double-allele mutations for patients with autosomal recessive deafness. Here, we report the first case of autosomal recessive genetic deafness in an enlarged vestibular aqueduct syndrome (EVAS) patient with biallelic mutations in two deafness genes. METHODS: Temporal computed tomography (CT), complete physical and otoscopic examinations, and an audiological study, including tympanometry, pure-tone audiometry or auditory steady-state response (ASSR), were carried out. Exon 2 of GJB2 and the coding exons of SLC26A4 were sequenced. RESULTS: A patient with an enlarged vestibular aqueduct was found to carry c.1229C>T/c.1079C>T compound heterozygous mutations in SLC26A4.This individual also carried c.257C>G/c.299-300delAT compound heterozygous mutations in GJB2. As a result, the recurrent risk of the patient's siblings increased significantly from 25% for typical autosomal recessive deafness to 43.75%. CONCLUSIONS: The findings of the present study challenge the traditional diagnostic strategy in which testing is generally considered complete upon identification of a double-allele mutation within one gene, with significant implications for genetic counseling and risk prediction. Our results suggest that, with advances in sequencing technology, it will be possible and necessary to test all known deafness genes in the near future, as this will likely allow more accurate genetic counseling of patients.

8 Article Intraoperative CT-guided cochlear implantation in congenital ear deformity. 2012

Yuan, Yong-Yi / Song, Yue-Shuai / Chai, Ci-Man / Shen, Wei-Dong / Han, Wei-Ju / Liu, Jun / Wang, Guo-Jian / Dong, Tian-Xiang / Han, Dong-Yi / Dai, Pu. ·Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China. ·Acta Otolaryngol · Pubmed #22668345.

ABSTRACT: CONCLUSIONS: Intraoperative computed tomography (iCT)-guided cochlear implantation is practical and effective for correct electrode placement in the cochlea of patients with congenital inner ear and/or complex middle ear malformation. OBJECTIVES: The operation in patients with inner ear and/or complex middle ear malformation including abnormal facial nerve course is difficult. This study evaluated the efficacy of cochlear implantation under the guidance of iCT to insure correct electrode placement. METHODS: This was a prospective interventional case series. Ten patients with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss due to ear malformations were enrolled, and iCT was used to confirm the right placement of electrodes. RESULTS: Intraoperative CT was performed three times in one patient, twice in two, and once in the others. Interruption of the surgical process for each iCT until resumption of surgery was 9.64 ± 0.63 min. iCT revealed incorrectly positioned cochlear implants in two patients, which were immediately corrected. There were no reoperations due to misplacement of electrodes. iCT helped locate the cochlea in the middle ear of one patient with an abnormal facial nerve course. The overall intervention rate based on iCT findings was 30%. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: level 4.

9 Article Common molecular etiologies are rare in nonsyndromic Tibetan Chinese patients with hearing impairment. 2012

Yuan, Yongyi / Zhang, Xun / Huang, Shasha / Zuo, Lujie / Zhang, Guozheng / Song, Yueshuai / Wang, Guojian / Wang, Hongtian / Huang, Deliang / Han, Dongyi / Dai, Pu. ·Department of Otolaryngology, PLA General Hospital, Beijing, People's Republic of China. ·PLoS One · Pubmed #22389666.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Thirty thousand infants are born every year with congenital hearing impairment in mainland China. Racial and regional factors are important in clinical diagnosis of genetic deafness. However, molecular etiology of hearing impairment in the Tibetan Chinese population living in the Tibetan Plateau has not been investigated. To provide appropriate genetic testing and counseling to Tibetan families, we investigated molecular etiology of nonsyndromic deafness in this population. METHODS: A total of 114 unrelated deaf Tibetan children from the Tibet Autonomous Region were enrolled. Five prominent deafness-related genes, GJB2, SLC26A4, GJB6, POU3F4, and mtDNA 12S rRNA, were analyzed. Inner ear development was evaluated by temporal CT. A total of 106 Tibetan hearing normal individuals were included as genetic controls. For radiological comparison, 120 patients, mainly of Han ethnicity, with sensorineural hearing loss were analyzed by temporal CT. RESULTS: None of the Tibetan patients carried diallelic GJB2 or SLC26A4 mutations. Two patients with a history of aminoglycoside usage carried homogeneous mtDNA 12S rRNA A1555G mutation. Two controls were homozygous for 12S rRNA A1555G. There were no mutations in GJB6 or POU3F4. A diagnosis of inner ear malformation was made in 20.18% of the Tibetan patients and 21.67% of the Han deaf group. Enlarged vestibular aqueduct, the most common inner ear deformity, was not found in theTibetan patients, but was seen in 18.33% of the Han patients. Common molecular etiologies, GJB2 and SLC26A4 mutations, were rare in the Tibetan Chinese deaf population. CONCLUSION: The mutation spectrum of hearing loss differs significantly between Chinese Tibetan patients and Han patients. The incidence of inner ear malformation in Tibetans is almost as high as that in Han deaf patients, but the types of malformation vary greatly. Hypoxia and special environment in plateau may be one cause of developmental inner ear deformity in this population.
