Cochlear implantation in adults with asymmetric hearing loss. Patients with asymmetric hearing loss who are not typical cochlear implant candidates can benefit from using a cochlear implant in the poorer ear with continued use of a hearing aid in the better ear.

Although the impact for prelingually deaf, early-implanted pediatric cochlear implant users is still unclear, in postlingually deafened adults, the positioning and depth of insertion of the electrode array inside the cochlea has been shown to reliably predict some portion of the variability among adult patients in word recognition scores attained postimplantation.

A detailed account of Cochlear Implant Connections is provided, including the individual components of this innovative program. A wide range of hearing abilities is obtained with a cochlear implant, with most cochlear implant listeners able to obtain good open-set speech recognition in quiet.

For adults, performance with a cochlear implant generally improves rapidly over a few months and then more slowly over several years. The outcome of cochlear implantation in patients with deafness of prelingual onset is largely unpredictable due to high individual variability.

This study evaluated speech perception performances in a group of 18 prelingually deafened subjects (aged 13–30 years) which was homogeneous with respect to duration of deafness, hearing aid use before cochCited by: A group of 10 children, adolescents, and prelinguistically deafened adults were implanted with the electrode cochlear implant (Cochlear Pty Ltd) at the University of Melbourne Cochlear Implant Clinic and have used the prosthesis for periods from 12 to 65 months.
