Electronic stimulation of hearing sensation has been achieved and tested in one patient over a period of three years. The results are encouraging and warrant more widespread testing and development of this method of rehabilitation of totally deaf patients.

Cochlear Implants

The treatment of bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss has been revolutionized over the past few decades by the development of cochlear implant technology. This review discusses the history,

The Mayo Clinic Experience with the Cochlear Implant

The implantati on of a cochlear electronic prosthetic device is an accept able means of improving the communication ability of pre- and postlinguaIIy deafened children and adults. A significant

Experiences from Cochlear Implantation and Auditory Brainstem Implantation in Adults and Children : Electrophysiological Measurements, Hearing Outcomes and Patient Satisfaction

Two new types of cochlear implants for auditory brainstem implants are reported to be effective in patients with profound hearing impairment and a third type of implant is in development for patients with hearing loss.

Long‐term audiologic outcomes after cochlear implantation for single‐sided deafness

To evaluate the long‐term audiometric outcomes, sound localization abilities, binaural benefits, and tinnitus assessment of subjects with cochlear implant (CI) after a diagnosis of unilateral

An Eight Channel Scala Tympani Electrode for Auditory Prostheses

An eight channel stimulation electrode has been developed which can be inserted into the human scala tympani via the round window. This electrode is part of a neuroprosthesis aiming at the

Auditory Prostheses in Perspective

The role of single-channel prostheses as a treatment for acquired deafness is discussed in terms of the auditory expectation for a single channel and of subject selection.

Vestibular Effects of Cochlear Implantation

Cochlear implantation carries with it the potential risk for vestibular system insult or stimulation with resultant dysfunction, and understanding the significance of this risk takes on an increasing importance.

The round window is an important portal for the application of active hearing aids and cochlear implants. The anatomical and topographical knowledge about the round window region is a prerequisite

Present audiologic status of subjects implanted with auditory prostheses.

Audiological testing indicated that all of the subjects had profound sensorineural hearing losses, andTympanometric testing gave no evidence that implant surgery had disrupted middle ear function.

First results of chronic electrical stimulation with a round-window electrode in totally deaf patients

A few patients who had become totally deaf in adulthood were chronically implanted with an electrode on the round window and a small portable stimulator was suggested for everyday use, appearing safe and patients have become attached to its use.



Electrical stimulation of the human cochlea. A preliminary report.

Two patients were tested with electrodes placed temporarily in the lower scala and both patients were able to perform certain speech recognition tasks with results above the chance level.

Auditory Nerve: Electrical Stimulation in Man

Auditory perceptions produced in a person deaf to acoustic stimulation were studied by electrically exciting the auditory nerve through permanently implanted electrodes to produce a number of complex effects.
