Preserving the natural function of the cochlea is especially important for patients with residual hearing. If an array deviates into the scala vestibuli or substantially damages important surrounding structures within the scala tympani, all residual hearing would likely be permanently lost. This SurgeryONLINE will explore the key surgical steps to achieving hearing preservation with long electrodes and which candidates are suitable to benefit from long electrode arrays.
