UNLABELLED Cochlear implantation has been recommended for children under 24 months of age. The use of objective measures is needed to help speech processor programming. The electrically evoked compound potential (EAP), which can be assessed by neural response telemetry (NRT), is one of those objective measures. AIM to determine how often the EAP can be(More)
UNLABELLED Electrically Evoked Compound Action Potential is a measure of synchronous cochlear nerve fibers activity elicited by electrical stimulation of the cochlear implant. The electrophysiological nerve responses may contribute to explain the variability in individual performance of cochlear implant recipients. AIM To compare speech perception tests(More)
BACKGROUND Cochlear implant speech processors compress a wide acoustical dynamic range of sounds into a smaller electrical dynamic range. Some patients show wider electrical dynamic ranges than others and most of them have good speech perception performance. The knowledge of the average psycho-acoustical dynamic range in adults will help the audiologist(More)
CONCLUSION The study shows that there are differences in the measurement of the action potentials with and without the stylet in the Nucleus Freedom Contour Advance that are higher in the apex than in the base of the cochlea. OBJECTIVES To determine if there are differences in the intraoperative impedances and in the neural response telemetry threshold(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the neural response in double-array cochlear implant as well as to describe the refractory recovery and the spread of excitation functions. In a prospective study 11 patients were implanted with the double-array cochlear implant. Neural response telemetry (NRT) was performed intra-operatively. NRT threshold could be registered(More)
