About The Book

Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Clinical Diagnosis and Management is a quick reference manual for pediatricians, residents, audiologists, and others who work with pediatric patients. This text distills the breadth of knowledge on this topic into one that is manageable and easily comprehensible.

Pediatric hearing loss is an incredibly complex topic replete with controversies, evolving research findings, and subtle differences in management and diagnosis with different types of hearing loss. Currently, there is no such manual for pediatric hearing loss and the literature that is available can be overwhelming and difficult to read as a quick reference. This text provides practical content for daily clinical use alongside CT and MRI images, audiograms, and algorithms.

The chapters distill this complex topic into distinct subsets such as unilateral hearing loss, congenital hearing loss, and sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss addresses clinical questions that arise in daily practice by pediatricians and otolaryngologists and can be used by residents for preparation for in-service training exams or as a teaching tool.

Dr. Lieu graduated from the Washington University School of Medicine and completed her otolaryngology training at the BJH/Washington University/SLCH consortium program. She obtained clinical research training at the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at Yale University, then returned to St. Louis Children’s Hospital for a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship.

Dr. Lieu is currently an Associate Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, a practicing pediatric otolaryngologist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the Program Director for the Otolaryngology residency program, and Vice-Chair for Education. Her research interests include hearing loss, otitis media, quality of life in children with otolaryngologic disorders, and improving the level of evidence in the otolaryngology literature.

Dr. Kenna received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and her MD from Boston University School of Medicine. She completed a residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and did her Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship training at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh (University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine).
