- Public TitleBilateral Cochlear Implantation in Adults (RCT).
- Scientific TitleBilateral Cochlear Implantation Benefits in Adult Users of the HiRes(R) 90K Bionic Ear System.
- hypothesisNormal-hearing listeners gain important benefits from having two ears. Users of a Bionic Ear achieve high levels of spoken word recognition when speech is presented in quiet. However they experience difficulty in the presence of competing sounds and are poor at identifying where sounds come from. These limitations may be overcome, to some degree, by providing an implant to both ears. This study will investigate bilateral versus unilateral benefit in adults who are implanted with two Bionic Ears either simultaneously or sequentially.

- Brief summaryBrief summary:
This study will investigate bilateral versus unilateral benefit in adults who are implanted with two Bionic Ears either simultaneously or sequentially. The objective is to evaluate the degree of bilateral benefit gained from having a second implant. 48 Adult subjects with severe sensorineural hearing loss will be included in this Randomised Controlled Trial. Half of the group shall receive one implant at the beginning of the study and a second implant after a period of two years. The other half shall receive two cochlear implants simultaneously during one operation. Objective and subjective parameters will be measured during evaluation sessions pre-operatively, and 1 and 2 years after cochlear implantation.
