KEY POINTS: Cochlear implant device fixation is an important aspect of the surgical procedure to ensure successful long-term outcomes. Inadequate device fixation may lead to constant shear stress, electrode fatigue and device extrusion or migration. Traditional fixation techniques involve bone-anchoring by drilling channels in the skull, which may lead to inadvertent injuries. More recent techniques use subperiosteal pockets but soft-tissue sutures are usually placed over the device. A straightforward none-bone anchored musculo-periosteal flap cochlear implant device fixation technique is described. Long-term results in 179 patients demonstrated low complication rates with no cases of device extrusion or migration. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
