The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of bilateral cochlear implants (CIs) use on speech perception in quiet and noise. The eleven children included in our study were prelingually deaf. With the two-stage technique, the two CIs were performed in all children. They underwent testing from four to 28 months after activation of bilateral hearing.(More)
