HYPOTHESIS Trauma caused by cochlear implant electrode insertion is attributable to the combination of direct physical trauma and the delayed cell death of oxidative stress-injured auditory sensory cells. BACKGROUND Histologic evaluation of cochlear implant electrode trauma has demonstrated that the extent of sensory cell losses is proportional to the degree of injury. However, the impact of delayed oxidative stress within injured cochlear tissues and the progressive loss of injured hair… CONTINUE READING
