OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS It has been hypothesized that etiology of hearing loss may serve as an independent variable in performance after cochlear implantation. To test this hypothesis, the authors identified pediatric cochlear implant recipients with gap junction protein beta2 (GJB2)-related deafness. The study examines performance outcomes associated with GJB2 deafness-causing allele variants. STUDY DESIGN Pediatric cochlear implant patients were screened for GJB2 allele variants; statistical… CONTINUE READING
