CONCLUSION Candidates for hearing preservation cochlear implant (CI) surgery can be divided into: those who benefit from electrical complement (EC) to remaining hearing and don't require additional amplification, those using a combined electric-acoustic stimulation (EAS) and those with the least amount of residual hearing who benefit from electric-only stimulation (ES) provided via medium length electrode. OBJECTIVES Patients with a borderline level of residual hearing may benefit from a… CONTINUE READING
