This issue of Perspectives focused on the current cochlear implant candidacy for adults with hearing impairment. We reviewed factors such as bilateral implantation, bimodal stimulation, surgical improvements, MRI compatibility, insurance coverage, and cosmetic considerations. We discussed the benefit of preserving low-frequency hearing loss with the hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implant. Moreover, we examined potential contributors for loss of residual acoustic hearing with hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implantation in a subset of patients. Etiologies such as mechanical damage to cochlear structures, inflammation and apoptosis of hair cells, and alterations to blood flow were discussed. Audiologists should stay informed on implantable solutions to hearing loss and should recommend cochlear implant evaluation for patients that fit the expanded candidacy criteria.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • explain the difference between the traditional cochlear implant and the hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implant
  • describe current candidacy for traditional and hybrid/electro-acoustic cochlear implants for adults
