Abstract
Cochlear implantation provides auditory stimulation for children who are deafened beyond the aid of traditional amplification. While cochlear implantation has been available for nearly twenty years, improvements in surgical technique and device design, and growing evidence regarding the communication and social benefits ofimplantation, have all contributed to wider application and acceptance of this technology. This paper is intended to update a multi-disciplinary audience on (1) the basic science behind auditory stimulation using cochlear implants and (2) technical challenges. Specific technical challenges include implantation of dysplastic cochleas and minimally invasive techniques for implantation.
