OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the insertion depth of a cochlear implant array affects postoperative speech perception. DESIGN The subjects were 48 postlingually deaf adults who received either the Nucleus 22 or the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant with a straight array. A postoperative radiograph of the cochlear electrode was used to estimate insertion depth, as either the angle of the electrode tip (angle) or the intracochlear length of the electrode (length). Other estimates of insertion… CONTINUE READING
