Abstract

A case is reported in which a Nucleus 22 channel cochlear implant was inserted into the basal turn of the cochlea of a patient with advanced otosclerosis. It then passed out of the anterior end of the basal turn into an otospongiotic cavity related to the cochlea. Seven electrodes were located in the basal turn and it was possible to map them sufficiently well for the patient to derive considerable benefit from the implant. The problem of implant induced facial nerve stimulation in otospongiosis is also discussed.
