Sam half sings, half speaks in a gently sand-blasted drawl, and it took until 2006 for people to start taking notice. In 1986, a friend asked Sam, then 32, if he wanted to join him on a trip to the mountains of Peru.
Part of Sama€™s ability to focus on the drama within the lives of ordinary people is his small-town upbringing. During that time, Sam played guitar (right-handed, then) in bars for fun and to meet people, particularly pretty girls. Still in a panic mode, he felt driven, in a nebulous way, needing to recover what he had lost.
He suffered phobias, always seeking to keep objects between himself and large store windows, fearing shards of glass that might be hurled by an explosion.
Looking back, he realizes that he was suffering from a form of post-traumatic stress disorder. In 1998, his sister, musician Chris Baker-Davies, made a record, Southern Wind, and included some of Sama€™s early songs. As one reviewer put it so aptly: a€?Therea€™s a conspiracy between Sam Baker and his studio production team to break your heart. If those of us living in the New York metropolitan area are lucky, more venue operators here will put this brilliant songwriter to work and wea€™ll see a lot more of him. Sam Bakera€™s awareness and appreciation of the beauty and detail in lifea€™s moments extend to his photography skills. Clad in a black turtleneck, Sam Baker peers out from the cover of his debut album Mercy, released in 2004. Somewhere in the almost three decades since his near-destruction, in order to move forward, he managed to find some forgiveness for the Shining Path.

We think, like Shulman and others,12,13 that the cochleovestibular system should be considered as a whole and studied as such. The aim of this study is to evaluate the changes in the neurootological evaluation of the patients suffering from tinnitus.
We investigated 44 patients, 19 men and 25 women, with a mean age of 48-years (standard deviation being 12). 2) When specifically asked 18% of our sample mentioned unsteadiness or other equilibrium disturbance.
Pure Tone Audiometry - The values for the mean and standard deviation of the hearing loss in dB are shown in Table 2. We found that 58% of the patients in our sample had a normal auditory level, considered a hearing level, which is equal or better than 20 dB HL for all frequencies. Caloric Tests - For statistical purposes the caloric response is quantified by using the central frequency of the nystagmus - defined as the number of nystagmus beats during the period of 30 seconds of maximal response.
Considering the two subgroups A and B representing the existence or absence of vestibular symptoms, the results are shown in Table 9.
Rotatory tests - The values for the mean and standard deviation of the number of nystagmus beats in the rotatory test are shown in Table 10. Even though a small percentage of patients complain about disequilibrium (less than 20% in our study), many of them have abnormal vestibular responses (more or less 60%). In conclusion, we would like to strongly recommend that any tinnitus patient, whether or not he or she has any vestibular symptoms, to be completely evaluated, in terms of auditory and vestibular functions. July 1, 2009The aim of this presentation is to demonstrate imaging findings of common diseases of the temporal bone. CT is the imaging modality of choice for most of the pathologic conditions of the temporal bone, especially for those of the middle ear. Disease processes in the pontine angle and in the internal acoustic meatus are not discussed. There are several normal variants which may simulate disease or should be reported because they can endanger the surgical approach. A cochlear cleft is a narrow curved lucency extending from the cochlea towards the promontory. On the left an example of bilateral cochlear cleft in a one-year old boy with congenital hearing loss.
The petromastoid canal or subarcuate canal connects the mastoid antrum with the cranial cavity and houses the subarcuate artery and vein. If this patient would be a trauma victim, the canal could easily be confused with a fracture line (arrow).
The cochlear aqueduct is a narrow canal which runs towards the cochlea in almost the same direction as the inner auditory canal, but situated more caudally. The jugular bulb is often asymmetric, with the right jugular bulb usually being larger than the left. It can be accidentally lacerated during a mastoidectomy and therefore should be mentioned in the radiological report when present. The vestibular aqueduct is a narrow bony canal (aqueduct) that connects the endolymphatic sac with the inner ear (vestibule).
This progression is reportedly associated with minor head trauma, which exposes the inner ear to pressure waves via the large vestibular aqueduct. The large vestibular aqueduct is associated with an absence of the bony modiolus in more than 90% of patients. In external ear atresia the external auditory canal is not developed and sound cannot reach the tympanic membrane. The extent of ossicular chain malformation can vary from a fusion of the mallear head and incudal body to a small clump of malformed ossicles, which is often fused to the wall of the tympanic cavity. The mastoid portion of the facial nerve canal can be located more anteriorly than normal and this is important to report to the ENT surgeon in order to avoid iatrogenic injury to the nerve during surgery.
Early developmental arrest leads to an inner ear that consists of a small cyst, the so-called Michel deformity. Developmental arrest at a later stage leads to more or less severe deformities of the cochlea and of the vestibular apparatus. Instead of the normal two-and-one-half turns, there is only a normal basal turn and a cystic apex. A minor deformity of the cochlear apex is visible – there is no separation of the second and third turn and the bony modiolus is absent.
Malformations of the vestibule and semicircular canals vary from a common cavity to all these structures to a hypoplastic lateral semicircular canal. During embryogenesis the lateral semicircular canal is the last structure to form, thus in malformations of the semicircular canals the lateral canal is most commonly affected. On the left a 16-year old boy, examined preoperatively for a cholesteatoma of the right ear.
As a coincidental finding, there is a plump lateral semicircular canal (yellow arrow) and an absence of the superior canal (blue arrow).
For the ENT-surgeon the differentiation between chronic otitis media and cholesteatoma is important.
Erosion of the lateral wall of the epitympanum and of the ossicular chain is common in cholesteatoma (around 75%). Cholesteatoma can present with a non-dependent mass while chronic otitis shows thickened mucosal lining.
However, in both diseases the middle ear cavity can be completely opacified, obscuring a cholesteatoma. A small amount of soft tissue (arrow) is visible between the scutum and the ossicular chain but no erosion is present. There is calcification of the eardrum (white arrow) and calcific deposits on the stapes and the tendon of the stapedius muscle (black arrow). CT shows a tympanostomy tube (yellow arrow) and almost opacification of the tympanic cavity and mastoid air cells with soft tissue. CT shows the tympanostomy tube (yellow arrow) and complete opacification of the tympanic cavity and mastoid air cells with soft tissue. Large cholesteatomas can erode the auditory ossicles and the walls of the antrum and extend into the middle cranial fossa. CT demonstrates a soft tissue mass between the ossicular chain and the lateral tympanic wall, which is eroded. Pars flaccida cholesteatomaThe lesion starts anterosuperiorly in 'Prussaks space', the area just below the scutum, which is limited by the tympanic membrane, the malleus, and the lateral ligament of the malleus.
A cholesteatoma will then extend laterally towards the ossicular chain and into the epitympanum. The cholesteatoma begins posterosuperiorly and extends posteriorly towards the facial recess and tympanic sinus, and medially towards the ossicular chain.
On the left a large cholesteatoma in the right middle ear with destruction of the lateral wall of the tympanic cavity. On the left images of a cholesteatoma, which has eroded the ossicular chain and the wall of the lateral semicircular canal (arrows). A large cholesteatoma has resulted in a so called 'automastoidectomy', with severe erosion of the lateral tympanic cavity wall and destruction of the ossicular chain.


On the left images of a 50-year old man who presented with a left- sided retraction pocket and otorrhoea. All these findings favor the diagnosis of a cholesteatoma, but at surgery, chronic mastoiditis was found and no cholesteatoma was identified.
The CT shows erosion of the wall of the lateral semicircular canal (arrow) due to cholesteatoma.
The right ear shows a soft tissue mass medial to the ossicular chain with lateral displacement of the incus with erosion of its lenticular process and of the stapes, compatible with a pars tensa cholesteatoma (arrow).
Cholesteatomas are of mixed intensity on T1-weighted pulse sequences and of high intensity on T2-weighted pulse sequences.
After intravenous contrast MRI can distinguish granulation tissue from effusions.Diffusion weighted MR can differentiate between a cholesteatoma, which has a restricted diffusion, and other abnormalities - especially granulation tissue - which have normal diffusion characteristics (figure). It is sometimes called otospongiosis because the disease begins with an otospongiotic phase, which is followed by an otosclerotic phase when osteoclasts are replaced by osteoblasts and dense sclerotic bone is deposited in areas of previous bone resorption. When this process involves the oval window in the region of the footplate, the footplate becomes fixed, resulting in conductive hearing loss.
Conductive hearing loss develops early in the third decade and is considered to be the hallmark of the disease.
However, involvement of other portions of the otic capsule can result in mixed sensorineural hearing loss. The process starts in the region of the oval window, classically at the fissula ante fenestram, i.e. There is a subtle otosclerotic focus in the characteristic site: the fissula ante fenestram (arrows). On CT the detection of otosclerosis can be difficult to the inexperienced eye because the spread of the disease is often symmetrical.
Sometimes the whole otic capsule is surrounded by these 'otospongiotic' foci, forming the so-called fourth ring of Valvassori.
There is a lucency anterior to the oval window (arrow) and between the cochlea and the internal auditory canal.
On the left a patient with a well-positioned metallic stapedial prosthesis: medially it touches the oval window and laterally it connects with the long process of the incus. Notice the lucency between vestibule and cochlea as a manifestation of otosclerosis (arrow). On the left images of a 68-year old woman who experienced a traumatic head injury 50 years ago.
The consequences of the intracranial injuries dominate in the early period after the trauma. A temporal bone fracture can manifest itself with acute signs like bleeding from the ear or acute facial paralysis. Longitudinal fractures generally spare the inner ear, which is more often breached by transverse fractures. However, many temporal bone fractures are neither longitudinal nor transverse and a comprehensive description of the structures which are crossed by the fracture is needed. A longitudinal fracture is visible, which courses anteriorly to the cochlea through the region of the geniculate ganglion (arrows). Posttraumatic conductive hearing loss can be caused by a hematotympanum or a tear of the tympanic membrane. In persistent conductive hearing loss there is usually a disruption of the ossicular chain. The most common disruption is a dislocation of the incudostapedial joint which is often a subtle finding. Fractures of the long process of the incus or the crura of the stapes are difficult to diagnose. Longitudinal fracture (yellow arrow) coursing through the mastoid towards the region of the geniculate ganglion.
On the left images of a man who had suffered a traumatic head injury two months previously. There is a longitudinal fracture (yellow arrow) coursing through the mastoid towards the region of the geniculate ganglion. There is a dislocation of the incus with luxation of the incudo-mallear and incudo-stapedial joint (blue arrow).
On the left images of a 54-year old male several years after head trauma, followed by left-sided hearing loss.
The lateral semicircular canal is partially filled with dense material, compatible with labyrinthitis ossificans. In acute posttraumatic paralysis a fracture line through the facial nerve canal - usually in the tympanic part - can be observed, sometimes with a bony fragment impinging on the canal. In delayed facial paralysis the nerve is probably edematous and fracture lines can be absent. On the other hand, a fracture line may be seen to cross the facial nerve canal without any associated nerve dysfunction. A vascular anomaly can be suspected if the patient complains of pulsatile tinnitus or when there is a reddish or bluish mass behind the eardrum. In patients with an aberrant internal carotid artery the cervical part of the internal carotid artery is absent. It is replaced by the ascending pharyngeal artery which connects with the horizontal part of the internal carotid artery.
On the right side the internal carotid artery is separated from the middle ear (blue arrow). Exostoses of the external auditory canal are usually multiple, sessile, and bilateral and can cause severe narrowing of the external auditory canal. On the left images of a 57-year old male with a slowly progressive glomus jugulotympanicum tumor, visible as a mass on the floor of the tympanic cavity (arrow). At CT, the glomus jugulotympanic tumor manifests as a destructive lesion at the jugular foramen, often spreading into the hypotympanum. Large tumors have a 'salt and pepper' appearance at MRI due to their rich vascularity with flow voids.
On the left angiographic images of the left external carotid artery before embolisation and the common carotid artery after embolisation (blue arrow).
Glomus tumors arise from paraganglion cells which are present in the jugular foramen and on the promontory of the cochlea around the tympanic branch of the glossopharyngeal nerve.
EndoLymphatic Sac Tumor: destructive process of the dorsal temporal bone, with some calcification (arrow).
At CT a destructive process is seen on the dorsal surface of the petrosal part of the temporal bone with punctate calcifications.
The MM6 is available in three output levels, and comes in two variations to fit either the left or right ear. The MM6 fits comfortably within the helix of the ear, giving a completely open ear for maximum sound collection and ease of use. Sam, an outdoor-loving, whitewater river guide, said a€?Sure.a€? After hiking ice-capped peaks for six days, they wanted to see Machu Picchu, so they went to Cuzco and got on the tourist train to get there. In the wake of the explosion, he couldna€™t walk, and the back of his left hand had a channel-like hollow blown out of it. Hearing his songs played by others made him want to push further, to really learn the craft of songwriting. Wilkins told Sam he knew how he should sound and arranged for Sam to visit Nashville, his recording base.
I saw him perform the song a€?Mennonitea€? from that album in 2013 at a house concert at Kathryn_space in Manhattana€™s East Village. In a€?Ditch,a€? wea€™re treated to a peek inside the mind of a man who lays pipe and is grateful for the work. He felt driven (and still does) to make sense of why his life was spared and why the boy he was talking with died in the blast.

Therefore, in order for the investigation of tinnitus to be complete, one must include the evaluation of the vestibular function of the ear, as well as the auditory.
The patient's head and body movements are recorded by a camera, as he performs the classical Unterberger-Fukuda's stepping test and Romberg's standing test.
The main changes were found to be a deterioration in the high frequency range (> 2 kHz) and a flat neurosensorial hearing loss, Table 3.
The standing test (Romberg test) showed two cases of discrete to moderate ataxia, all the others being normal.
The data are registered using the Claussen's butterfly.3,4 The values for the mean and standard deviation of the central frequency of the nystagmus in the caloric tests are shown in Table 8. Considering the classification into two subgroups, as for the other parameters, we found no significative differences between the group which related equilibrium disorders and the group with no symptoms of disequilibrium, as one can easily see in Table 11.
The supraliminal audiometry is, in our opinion, extremely important in the study of these patients.
These findings show that the vestibular system of tinnitus patients is not normal, even though they feel no equilibrium related symptom. Of these, roughly half of them have a peripheral pattern of lesion, and the others, a central pattern.


Ifthis proves to be true, we should expect these patients to progressively develop other symptoms of endolymphatic hydrops such as, sensorineural hearing loss and clinical vestibular dysfunction. Indeed, the cochleovestibular system must always be considered as a whole and studied as such.

Sitting in a small compartment, two abreast, a German couple opposite him and their teenaged son next to him, Sam took no notice of the red rucksack on the shelf above the head of the boya€™s mother seated diagonally across from him. A pilot rest stop was scheduled on the way, but a young girla€™s mortal injuries caused the flight to proceed directly to San Antonio so her family could see her and she could have her last rites. He also wrote a few love songs, but, as with many a budding songwriter, these were mundane, a€?I love you, you love me, you dona€™t love mea€? affairs. He told one interviewer: a€?The big things in my life have encouraged me to look at the small things. It was real loud a€” there were trucks going by, people were eating and they were dropping plates and stuff. Wilkins and co-producer Tim Lorsch recorded Sama€™s voice, guitar and harmonica on a dozen originals, then layered background instruments and vocals to create Sama€™s brilliant 2004 debut, Mercy. However, the most affecting of these, from Pretty World, may be a€?Broken Fingers,a€? which he performed live on Harrisa€™s show, a song in memory of that German boy: Forget his face?
His cracked, raspy vocal rides the scalpel-sharp quicksilver combination of pedal steel and fiddle. Larger, more viewable versions of these photographs (and many more, plus his paintings) can be found on the blog page of his website. You should not use the information on this site for diagnosis or treatment of any health problem or for prescription of any medication or other treatment. This approach is justified in a tinnitus patient because the cochleovestibular system is a unit and acts as a whole.
We excluded from this study, those patients who had an identifiable middle ear disease, such as chronic otitis, tympanic perforations, or tympanosclerosis.
For this study we only considered the measurements made with the higher intensity (120 dB SPL).
The patient is asked to use a hard hat with two small electrical bulbs in the saggital plain; one above the forehead and the other above the occiput.
We use an Electronystagmograph with three channels recording the vertical and horizonal movements of the eye.
These abnormalities in the graphic elements are very important and should always be looked for very carefully. Therefore, the great majority of them (70%) had at least one abnormality in the vestibular testing.
Therefore, we think that these patients should be periodically re-evaluated in order to determine any development of the disease or diseases. It has a high intensity on diffusion weighted images, which indicates restricted diffusion. I felt every room I walked in, every car I rode in, every plane I flew in, was going to blow up.
The biggest push came from Morlixa€™s leverage with influential British disc jockey Bob Harris, who played it on his national radio show. You should consult with a healthcare professional before starting any diet, exercise or supplementation program, before taking any medication, or if you have or suspect you might have a health problem. The lateral sway is assumed to be related with central disorders and the angular deviation with peripheral lesions. We found a pathological unilateral weakness in 30% of the cases, and a pathological directional preponderance in 14% of cases. These abnormalities were classified as a peripheral lesion in 32% of cases and for a central lesion in 38%. Suddenly, a bomb planted in the rucksack by Shining Path guerrillas went off with the train still in the station, sending shrapnel outward, killing the German family and four others immediately.
There was time to travel in those days, so when his friend suggested that fateful trip, Sam eagerly agreed. When his survival was assured, they finally did tendon implants and Sam began rehabilitation. I would write long pieces, word after word after word.a€? His writing kept improving, but it just wasna€™t good enough. The profile of these patients is then analysed by our neurootological routine evaluation, which comprises the history taking and audiometric as well as equilibriometric investigations. The nystagmus may be elicited by a variety of stimuli, either vestibular, optokinetics or others.
We would like to emphasise the fact that we found abnormal vestibular tests in tinnitus patients with no vestibular complaints.
Sam was still alive, but the explosion severed the main artery and vein in his left thigh and he almost bled to death.
We routinely use the calorics with an air stimulator, irrigating the ear during 30 seconds, at a rate of approximately 5-6 Iitres per minute at the temperature of 45 and 27 degrees Celsius.
It would take 17 reconstructive surgeries and a long time for the gestation to finish and fully emerge, but it did, from a life totally redirected. His left hand was still a mess and there was a cut tendon and a knuckle blown off the right. We concluded that many tinnitus patients, even those who had no vestibular symptoms, showed some disturbances in the vestibular tests.
The recording camera picks up the patients light tracings as reflected through a convex mirror, which is attached to the ceiling above the camera.
We usually perform the rotatory tests with an acceleration of three degrees per second square during 30 seconds and then there is a relapsing time of three minutes with constant velocity, therefore, with no vestibular stimulation.
An unexpectedly low discrimination score is, in our experience, highly suspicious of a retrocochlear lesion, namely an acoustic neurinoma. An operation in a local hospital saved his life, but he developed gangrene and was dying from the damage to his brain and kidneys. When Sam toured Britain in support of Pretty World, he did a live slot on Harrisa€™ radio show, and told Harris how grateful he was for sending his career to a brand new level.
While I was doing that, melodies would come and they would be like a cardinal, a very bright red bird that flies against the window, saying, a€?Pay attention to me.
This fact highlights the need for a complete cochleovestibular investigation in all patients complaining about tinnitus.
Therefore, the craniocorpogram looks like a radar image of the head and shoulder movements. The optokinetics are made in this period by asking the patient to open hislher eye and look forward. In fact, we have in our sample, two cases of neurinomas that presented with tinnitus as the first and only symptom.
We also found some cases where in one ear we have a normal response with the warm stimulation and an inhibited response with the cold stimulation.
He said: a€?I dona€™t know that you know how instrumental you are in my being here, not just in London, but wherever I am as a writer or a player.
He laughed and said, a€?That hand just went up all by itself, didna€™t it?a€? Sama€™s warmth and humor made it a special night. We think, after Claussen, that this pattern is highly suggestive of an irritative state of the peripheral organ, as for instance, in endolymphatic hydrops.
It would be left-handed picking this time, since those fingers would never again finger frets. So, we would like to emphasize the fact that, in our sample, while only 18% of the patients related an equilibrium problem, 66% of the patients had an abnormal vestibulometric evaluation. By the late a€™80s he had gotten a guitar, strung it upside down and learned to fret with his right hand. Sam added, a€?Not only that, ita€™s killing your favorite children.a€? Knowing what to take out is important. I was shocked.a€? Harris acknowledged how eager he was to hear someone Morlix had rhapsodized over, and subsequently, how much he loved Sama€™s work. The power of a€?noa€? when I leave stuff out makes the power of a€?yesa€? much more compelling.
