This podcast highlights original research published in the March 2022 issue of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery, the official journal of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) Foundation.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the hearing outcome of cochlear implantation in patients deafened by Ménière’s disease.
In conclusion, cochlear implant in patients deafened by Ménière’s disease significantly improves word recognition scores regardless of whether medical or surgical treatment is used prior to implantation. The potential improvement in word recognition scores decreases after age 70 years.
