Summary "We have built on the previous edition by adding new chapters relating to genetics, neuroplasticity, expanding criteria for implantation, the application of implant technology to tinnitus and vestibular issues, music perception, intraoperative monitoring, device reliability and reimplantation, and the use of quality-of-life and outcome measures--areas that occupy the forefront of cochlear implantation. Other chapters have been revised to reflect current research and clinical applications and provide the most recent information related to the clinical and translational sciences that continue to advance this exciting technology and its implementation. Patient outcomes, candidacy criteria, technical design, surgical technique, and programming and processing concepts are constantly progressing, and increasing numbers of individuals are gaining significant benefit. Our goal was to create a book that will provide both experienced and new and budding otolaryngologists-head and neck surgeons, neurotologists, audiologists, neuroscientists, neurophysiologists, speech pathologists, teachers of the deaf, psychologists, and others interested in cochlear implants with an extraordinary resource for years to come"--Provided by publisher
