Single Sided Deafness and Cochlear Implantation
Share |

Single Sided Deafness and Cochlear Implantation:  Single-Sided Deafness (having a hearing loss in only one ear) can make it hard to understand speech, especially in noisy environments, and difficult to localize sounds. Cochlear implantation for individuals with single-sided deafness (SSD) may provide improvement in speech comprehension in noise as well as improvements in localization ability.

The following presentations were given during CI2016, Toronto and include the following topics: implantation in children, bone-conduction, tinnitus relief, quality-of-life outcomes, long and short term outcomes. 

The mission of the American Cochlear Implant (ACI) Alliance is to advance access to the gift of hearing provided by cochlear implantation through research, advocacy and awareness.
