What are the long-term benefits of cochlear implantation in patients with high-frequency (HF) sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL)?
Results demonstrate long-term success of patients with HF hearing loss following Hybrid L24 (Cochlear) implantation, including benefits in speech perception abilities significantly better than those in the preoperative best-aided condition.

Background: Although CIs can provide audibility and improved speech understanding, those with significant residual low-frequency (LF) hearing and a precipitously sloping HF hearing loss have previously been left untreated. In 2007, Cochlear Americas initiated a six-month multicenter clinical trial to study the Nucleus Hybrid L24 Implant System in adults with LF hearing and severe/profound HF SNHL.
Study design: Five-year follow-up on a group of implant recipients who were subjects of the CochlearTM NucleusVR HybridTM L24 Implant System clinical study.| | | Next → | Single Page
