Intracochlear Pressure Changes due to 2 Electrode Types: An Artificial Model Experiment.

Objective To preserve residual hearing in cochlear implant surgery, the electrode design has been refined, and an atraumatic insertion has become one aspect of cochlear implant research. Previous studies have described the effect of insertion speed and opening of the round window membrane on intracochlear pressure changes. The aim of our current study was… CONTINUE READING
