OBJECTIVES To review our experiences with some of the preoperative and postoperative findings in five children who were diagnosed with auditory neuropathy and were provided with cochlear implants. We describe changes in auditory function, which enabled these children to have significant improvement in their hearing and communication skills. STUDY DESIGN(More)
Cochlear implant recipients have demonstrated remarkable increases in speech perception since US FDA approval was granted in 1984. Improved performance is due to a number of factors including improved cochlear implant technology, evolving speech coding strategies, and individuals with increasingly more residual hearing receiving implants. Despite this(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies have shown that cochlear implant outcomes with respect to surgical morbidity and speech perception may be poorer in elderly patients as compared with younger adults. However, recent anecdotal reports suggest that elderly cochlear implant recipients are achieving increasingly higher speech perception performance and fewer surgical(More)
We present the case of an adult male whose internal cochlear implant unit failed. Several months elapsed following initial stimulation with the implant before the problem was identified and corrected. The sequence of the failure and its detection are detailed. Following reimplantation, the patient did not initially report improved sound quality. However,(More)
