Difficult Inner Ear Anatomical Types and Optimal Electrode Choices


20 April 2022, 14:00 - 14:40, (UTC +2:00)

A cochlear implant (CI) electrode is intended to provide electrical stimulation to the auditory neuronal elements. This webinar will address various inner ear anatomical types as reported in the literature, how to identify it from pre-operative images, and the electrode choices which MED-EL offers to each of the anatomical types.

Learning Objectives:
  • Introduction to various inner ear anatomical types.
  • How to identify it from the pre-operative images.
  • What electrode choices MED-EL offer in each of the inner ear anatomical types.
  • Hearing outcomes with CI in different inner ear anatomies, as reported in the literature.
