INTRODUCTION The increased understanding on the impact of partial deafness (PD) with residual low-frequency hearing has led to new hearing rehabilitation strategies using hearing preservation techniques during cochlear implantation with the aim to make use of the combined electric acoustic stimulation (EAS) in the affected ear. As a first report, we describe minor forms of the incomplete cochlear partition type II (IP- II) involving the apical 1.5 turns, which were found in the majority of our… CONTINUE READING
