Explore the latest in cochlear implantation, including recent advances in technologies, techniques, and indications for the procedure.
This cohort study describes the rates of major surgical site infection for patients undergoing cochlear implantation who receive prolonged antibiotic treatment compared with those who receive a single perioperative dose of antibiotic prophylaxis.
This narrative review describes the various aspects of common cavity deformity and examines cochlear implant, the first-line option for achieving hearing function in patients with common cavity deformity.
This cohort study evaluates the association between image-based place-pitch mapping using flat-panel computed tomography with speech and pitch perception in individuals with cochlear implants.
This Viewpoint cites several examples of how brain-derived neurotrophic factor therapy affects outcomes of cochlear implantation.
This study used focus groups consisting of adult cochlear implant users to identify content areas and domains for developing the item bank for a cochlear implant–specific quality-of-life instrument.
This randomized clinical trial investigates the hearing capabilities and the self-reported benefits of simultaneous bilateral cochlear implants compared with sequential bilateral cochlear implants.
This Viewpoint summarizes the origins, challenges, and future of the cochlear implant center.
This study reviews the achievement of fundamental auditory recognition and sound imitation in children with cochlear implants and investigates whether underinsured patients would achieve these goals in a delayed manner.
This observational study investigates the association of treatment with a hearing aid or cochlear implant with depressive symptoms in older adults.
This clinical trial examines the benefits of simultaneous bilateral cochlear implantation compared with unilateral cochlear implantation in adults with postlingual deafness.
This systematic review describes the reported rates and types of delayed complications after cochlear implantation in adults and children.
This longitudinal study evaluates the changes in speech perception and cognitive abilities in elderly patients who receive cochlear implants.
This retrospective analysis finds that age at revision cochlear implantation is not related to postrevision speech perception performance.
Eskander et al assess speech and articulation in deaf, long-term cochlear implant users who had undergone early unilateral implantation as compared with their normal-hearing peers.
Kronenberger and coauthors compare executive functioning deficits in children with cochlear implants and those with normal hearing.
Roy et al evaluate the Music in Children With Cochlear Implants (MCCI) test as a tool to measure music perception. Performance of children with cochlear implants was compared with that of children with normal hearing.
Fife and colleagues determine whether cochlear implantation (CI) in patients with Ménière’s disease improves hearing performance as measured by standard post-CI audiometric testing and describe the impact of CI on subjective auditory and vestibular quality-of-life measures.
Liu et al perform a cadaveric feasibility study of a master-slave–assisted cochlear implant procedure using the da Vinci Si Surgical System.
