Thoroughly updated for its Second Edition, this book provides an in-depth discussion on prosthetic restoration of hearing via implantation. The text succinctly discusses the scientific principles behind cochlear implants, examines the latest technology, and offers practical advice on how to assess candidates, how to implant the devices, and what rehabilitation is most effective. The authors thoroughly examine the outcomes of cochlear implantation, the impact on the patient's quality of life, the benefits in relation to the costs, and the implications of cochlear implants for language and speech acquisition and childhood education.

Introduction On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Third Congress of Asia Pacific Symposium on Cochlear Implant and Related Sciences (3rd APSCI), I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all the attendants at the meeting, as well as to the contributors to these Proceedings. As most of you will have realized, the meeting was a great success both from a scientific as well as a social point of view. Almost four hundred attendants from 25 countries gathered in the Osaka Convention Hall. The program consisted of three parallel workshops spanning one and a half days, and three full days of scientific sessions. The weather was ideal, and our guests were able to see the cherry trees in full blossom and to enjoy their fill of Japanese culture. We have great pleasure in sending you your copy of the Proceedings of the 3rd APSCI, which contains all the updated information and state-of-the-art knowledge on cochlear implants and implantable hearing devices. As is indicated in the title of the meeting, this book covers many areas that are of scientific interest to us. The articles cover subjects ranging from surgical issues with regard to cochlear implantation, to basic studies on the auditory system, developmental studies in children, communication skills, speech, and education, etc. In addition, the reader will observe that some of the articles are related to implantable middle ear devices, a subject which was not covered in the proceedings of the 1st and 2nd APSCI meetings. The editors sincerely hope that this book will contribute to the development of cochlear implants and middle ear devices. Takeshi Kubo, MD President, 3rd APSCI

Cochlear Implants: Audiologic Management and Considerations for Implantable Hearing Devices provides comprehensive coverage of the audiological principles and practices pertaining to cochlear implants and other implantable hearing technologies. This is the first and only book that is written specifically for audiologists and that exhaustively addresses the details involved with the assessment and management of cochlear implant technology. Additionally, this book provides a through overview of hybrid cochlear implants, implantable bone conduction hearing technology, middle ear implantable devices, and auditory brainstem implants. Key Features: Each chapter features an abundance of figures supporting the clinical practices and principles discussed in the text and enabling students and clinicians to more easily understand and apply the material to clinical practice.The information is evidence based and whenever possible is supported by up-to-date peer-reviewed research.Provides comprehensive coverage of complex information and sophisticated technology in a manner that is student-friendly and in an easily understandable narrative form.Concepts covered in the narrative text are presented clearly and then reinforced through additional learning aids including case studies and video examples.Full color design with numerous figures and illustrations. Cochlear Implants is the perfect choice for graduate-level courses covering implantable hearing technologies because the book provides a widespread yet intricate description of every implantable hearing technology available for clinical use today. This textbook is an invaluable resource and reference for both audiology graduate students and clinical audiologists who work with implantable hearing devices. Furthermore, this book supplements the evidence-based clinical information provided for a variety of implantable hearing devices with clinical videos demonstrating basic management procedures and practices.

A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who has a severe or profound hearing loss. A cochlear implant does not cure deafness or hearing impairment, but is a prosthetic substitute which directly stimulates the cochlea. There are over 250,000 users worldwide with 12,000 in the UK. This book is a multidisciplinary guide to cochlear implantation in children and adults with sensorineural hearing loss (where the root cause lies in the inner ear or sensory organ, ie the cochlear and associated organs). Beginning with discussion on the aetiology of hearing loss and assessment of cochlear implant candidacy, the next chapter discusses preoperative cochlear implant imaging. Each of the following sections provides in depth coverage of different types of cochlear implantation and their potential outcomes. The final sections examine miscellaneous topics such as music perception in cochlear implantation, drug eluting electrodes, cost effectiveness, and reliability reporting. Authored by internationally recognised, US-based specialists, the text is further enhanced by clinical and surgical photographs and illustrations.

This book is a comprehensive illustration of content covering cochlear implants' past, present, and future perspectives. It delves into history, about how the first implant was conceived around 50 years ago and how modern cochlear implants provide better hearing and speech discrimination with the evolution of technology. This book discusses the basic working principles of cochlear implants, along with a review of their clinical use. The book also elaborates upon the various surgical techniques authored by clinicians who are pioneers. This book covers various important topics such as implantation in abnormal cochleas, bilateral implantation, implanting with acoustic and electric stimulation, and re-implantation. The book guides selecting the suitable candidates, describing preoperative evaluation and imaging techniques. This book will be an invaluable source of guidance for ENT surgeons, Audiologists, and Neurologists, along with undergraduate and postgraduate students in Audiology and ENT.
