Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report the speech perception progress and programming procedures of a case of congenital profound deafness and bilateral Mondini dysplasia implanted with a Nucleus 20 + 2 cochlear implant at the age of six. Unclear relations between electrodes array and cochlear partition made implant programming difficult and nun-standard procedures were set. Cochlear implantation may give excellent rehabilitative results also in cochleae with malformation.
