Computer-assisted navigation systems can now potentially guide the surgeon to the cochlea with a trajectory avoiding the facial nerve through a keyhole approach. Five temporal bone specimens, with 4 titanium screws placed in the mastoid cortex, were studied. Preoperative computed tomographic scan images were loaded on an electromagnetic computer-assisted(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the surgical feasibility of a transmodiolar approach via the middle ear cavity for an auditory nerve implantation in humans. In the first part of the study, 6 adult human temporal bones underwent a navigator-guided transmodiolar implantation via the middle ear space after a radical mastoidectomy. In the second part, 122(More)
