Eligible patients can get cochlear implants free of charge through a national program. The program is led by the Viani National Research Center on hearing implants %26.Cochlear offers a wide range of implants and electrodes to treat your type of hearing loss, the anatomy of the cochlea and the surgeon's preferences. Cochlear implants are increasingly being used to treat sensorineural hearing disorders in children and adults. Preoperative computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging play a fundamental role in the selection of patients, since they make it possible to rule out findings that prevent surgery or identify conditions that may affect the surgical procedure.
The postoperative position of the electrode array within the cochlea can be reliably identified by cone beam computed tomography. Recognizing scalar dislocation, cochlear dislocation, electrode creasing and poor position of the electrode array can have important consequences for the patient, such as revision surgery or adapted adjustment.
