Cochlear implants in children: medical and surgical considerations.


The surgical procedure for placement of a single-electrode cochlear implant in children is described in detail. This is essentially the same procedure that has been successfully used in adults. Medical, radiological, and surgical data are also presented. The majority of the children were deafened by meningitis. Preoperative X-rays indicated ossification of scala tympani was present in 34% of the cases and ossification of the round window in more than 50%. Surgical and postoperative complications have been minimal.
