OBJECTIVE To describe the surgical technique under local or general anesthesia of 5 cases that have undergone this procedure and the audiologic results obtained with this new device. PATIENTS Four patients with mixed hearing loss and 1 patient with single-sided deafness. INTERVENTION Therapeutic. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES The surgery was planned(More)
CONCLUSION The effect of visual condition is more intense in the first trial response in normal subjects and patients and in last trial response only in patients. The first trial effect is more evident in compensated patients in the eyes open condition with any type of perturbation, and in non-compensated patients with the angular displacements in either(More)

HYPOTHESIS Evaluate, based on morphologic and histologic parameters, the atraumaticity of 2 electrode arrays implanted in 10 human temporal bones. BACKGROUND Atraumatic surgery and electrode arrays are current topics in otologic surgery. The preservation of cochlear anatomy and its functions is a priority and morphologic evaluation of the surgical trauma(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of reimplanting a cochlear implant electrode in animal normal-hearing cochlea to propose measures that may prevent cochlear injury and, given its close phylogenetic proximity to humans, to evaluate the macaque as a model for electroacoustic stimulation. DESIGN Simultaneous, bilateral(More)
