OBJECTIVES To evaluate sound localization ability in totally deaf patients with unilateral cochlear implants and to estimate the ability to improve this function by training. DESIGN A controlled case series. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine patients with monaural cochlear implants were asked to identify the source of 50 randomly distributed sound stimuli(More)
CONCLUSION The benefit obtained with a contralateral hearing aid (HA) in unilateral cochlear implantees improves over time, at least during the first year after implantation. OBJECTIVE To evaluate binaural-bimodal auditory ability and its early changes over time after unilateral cochlear implantation in patients with residual hearing in the non-implanted(More)
Cochlear implants and conventional hearing aids use different stimulating signals. The beneficial effect of contralateral hearing aids in cochlear implantees, in terms of added speech perception, is still a matter of debate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible enhancement in speech perception in unilateral cochlear implantees who wear a(More)
