Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This paper describes a technique for implantation of the CLARION Multi-Strategy Cochlear Implant based upon the authors' surgical experience with the device. Although much of the procedure is similar to many commonly performed otologic operations, including implantation of other cochlear prostheses, several device-specific modifications are highlighted. Those modifications include a substantial bony seat, facial recess, and cochleostomy, and the use of an electrode insertion tool.
