Abstract

Cochlear implantation is a relatively new method that revolutionised the therapy of bilateral deafness and profound hearing loss of inner ear origin which could not be treated with surgery before. The function of the inner ear that is irreversibly damaged either because of congenital causes, trauma, infection or unknown origin is substituted by cochlear implant. In implanted patients the device fixed in the middle ear transmits the previously transformed electrical stimuli directly to the cochlear nerve via the electrodes inserted in the inner ear. Prior to implantation there is a detailed selection process and also a lengthy, followed by a several-year-long rehabilitation period, resulting in nearly perfect speech discrimination without lipreading in most cases. Cochlear implantation is indicated in the first place in case of prelingual deafs under 5 and postlingual deaf patients of any age. In the article authors discuss the theoretical basis, technical background and indications of cochlear implantation, while also providing an overview of the whole procedure from the preoperative examinations to postoperative rehabilitation.
