Cochlear implantation in children with labyrinthine anomalies and cochlear nerve deficiency: Implications for auditory brainstem implantation

Conclusions:
Children with IP-EVA malformations have an excellent prognosis for developing open-set speech perception and using oral communication modes following CI. On the contrary, children with severe malformations o CND may have elevated charge requirements for attaining sound detection alone. These children’s prognosis for obtaining open-set speech understanding, using exclusive oral communication, and participating in mainstream education is more limited. These findings have important implications for considering alternative forms of intervention such as auditory brainstem implantation and/or supplementation with visually based communication strategies.
