Cochlear Implants, Third Edition

Cochlear Implants is now in its third edition with the last addition being published in 2006. With the third edition being published in 2014 there have been eight years of development and research to take in to account and as...

Damage to the cochlear nucleus with electrocautery to the cochlear nerve

This study is of importance to neurotologists and neurosurgeons. It is unclear why patients with NF2 have poorer outcomes with an auditory brainstem implant compared to non-tumour patients. This effect is postulated to be due to damage to certain cells...

Cochlear implants with an absent or hypoplastic cochlear nerve?

The cornerstone of successful cochlear implantation has been the presence of a population of cochlear nerve endings which are able to mount a neural response to electrical stimulation. The authors of this paper present their experience of five children with...

The HEARO Procedure for cochlear implantation

Cochlear implants have become the state-of-the-art treatment for profound to severe sensorineural hearing loss. Since its popularisation, many aspects of this technology have constantly been optimised. Processors have become smaller, are worn behind the ear and are even water resistant....

Mondini dysplasia and cochlear implantation

Approximately 20-28% of sensorineural hearing loss in children arises due to a cochlear malformation. Mondini dysplasia includes a cochlear with one and a half turns and an incomplete interscalar septum. Cochlear implantation is a common treatment protocol for children with...

Objective Measures in Cochlear Implants

‘Objective Measures in Cochlear Implants’ is likely to appeal to audiologists working with cochlear implant recipients. However, the author has also included two introductory chapters covering the basics of a cochlear implant and signal delivery for those with less experience....

Cochlear Implants: Principles & Practices

Cochlear implants: Principles & Practices describes the scientific foundations and the practices that underlie cochlear implants. This second edition has an expanded list of contributors and addresses the broad range of related topics that impact the field. The book addresses...

Cochlear implants for children

The field of cochlear implants in children has expanded remarkably over 40 years. Elizabeth Tyszkiewicz reflects on success and current challenges and calls for a national review of outcomes for young adults who received their implants in childhood. Aleena is...

Cochlear implants and speech perception

Cochlear implants can be an effective treatment for specific hearing losses. They may often be the only way to restore hearing for profoundly deaf people. Therefore, it is very important to understand all processes that may influence effective fitting of...

Review: Cochlear Implantation in SSD?

Contra lateral routing of signals (CROS) using hearing aids and bone conduction devices has been the conventionally accepted modality for the treatment of single sided hearing impairment. The CROS hearing aid has been found to improve speech understanding in noise,...

Leading in cochlear implant reliability

All MED-EL’S titanium cochlear implants since 2006 have an overall cumulative survival rate of over 99%.

Better Hearing with Cochlear Implants

This soft cover book of 453 pages describes in detail the work undertaken at the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) in North Carolina which has led to many of the designs and theories of speech processing in cochlear implantation. It is...
