HYPOTHESIS Auditory perception and speech discrimination among pediatric cochlear implantees may vary because of underlying deafness etiology, including connexin 26 (GJB2) gene-related deafness. BACKGROUND Preliminary data suggest pathologic changes due to GJB2 mutations do not affect the spiral ganglion cells, which are stimulated by the cochlear implant. The survival of the spiral ganglion cells is believed to be an important determinant of outcome after surgery. Patients with GJB2-related… CONTINUE READING
