Special Issue "Cochlear Implantation and Hearing Rehabilitation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 January 2022.
Interests: hearing rehabilitation; cochlear implantation; ear and skull base surgery; vestibular schwannoma; middle and inner ear
The cochlear implant constitutes the first and only restitution of a human sense—hearing. The number of patients implanted worldwide is approaching one million, including newborns with congenital profound hearing loss or deafness, and children and adults with progressive hearing loss too severe to be treated with conventional hearing aids. The average benefit for patients is remarkable, and as an example, a vast majority of deafborn children will develop normal language before school age, provided that the implantation is performed at an early stage and that rehabilitation is designed appropriately. Recent developments have refined the technology behind and within the implant itself, including, for example, the wireless streaming of telephone calls and music directly to the implant, which has improved versatility and user satisfaction considerably. Indications for implantation are broadening, as for example, patients with residual hearing or single-sided deafness experience significant improvement of their hearing and social abilities. This Special Issue is relaying contemporary pediatric and adult outcomes and other contemporary aspects of cochlear implantation.
