Positioning of the receiver-stimulator for the CI–24M cochlear implant in infants

  • T. E. Mitchell (a1) and W. P. R. Gibson (a2)
Abstract

A new cochlear implant (CI–24M) has recently been released by Cochlear Ltd. The shape and size of the receiver-stimulator differs from that of the CI–22M. Infants as young as one year of age are now receiving cochlear implants. We have examined the likely effect of skull growth following the implantation of a CI-24M cochlear implant in an infant of this age.
