What is a cochlear Implant?
Cochlear Implant is a small complex device that improves the hearing ability of individuals who are profoundly deaf or those who find it very difficult to hear. A cochlear implant bypasses the part of the ear that is damaged to send the voice, unlike hearing aids which amplify the sound. A cochlear implant consists of an external piece consisting of a microphone, sound processor and transmitter that are placed behind the ear and an internal piece consisting of electrodes that are accommodated within the ear.
Preparation of procedure
Before the surgery, your doctor will examine your external, middle and internal ear for any abnormality.
The doctor may advise certain tests such as audiograms, CT scans, and MRI.
The surgeon makes an incision to expose the mastoid bone.
The surgeon then makes an incision in the cochlea (spiral bone in the inner ear) to insert an electrode array into the cochlea.
The receiver is placed behind the ear, and the incision is closed.
The patient needs to visit the hospital after 1 week for the removal of the external bandage. The follow-up appointment is meant to check the functioning of the cochlear implant and to evaluate the frequency of future appointments.
