What is cochlear implant and how it works?

Cochlear implant is an electronic device which is used in an effort to restore hearing sense to people with low or average hearing ability whose problem derives from the impairment of internal ear. Unlike conventional hearing assistance devices like hearing aid which merely strengthen the sounds, cochlear prosthesis receives and processes sound signals, and then it delivers them to hearing nerves to be interpreted by patient brain.

The ear cochlear prosthesis is made up of two main components:

Its external part includes a microphone for ushering in the sound signals from the environment and a processor for turning the sound energy to electronic signals. This part is installed behind the ear and some of its types are hid beneath the hair.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

What is a cochlear implant?

A cochlear implant is a small, surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing. It consists of an external portion that sits behind the ear, like a hearing aid, and a second portion that is surgically placed under the skin. External components of the cochlear implant include a microphone, speech processor and a radio frequency transmitter.

How many years do cochlear implants last?

The surgically implanted device is meant to last a lifetime. However, there have been some cases in which there has been equipment failure and the device was surgically replaced.

How painful is cochlear implant surgery?

The implant may make a small bump under the skin behind your ear. Your hair may cover the scar, the bump, and the device worn outside your ear. You may have mild to moderate pain in and around your ear and have a headache for a few days. You may have some popping or clicking in your ear and feel dizzy.

Can you hear normally after a cochlear implant?

The implant doesn’t make you hear normally again, but it can help you with sounds. Most people with severe to profound hearing loss can understand speech in person or over the phone better than they did with a hearing aid. It can usually help you know sounds around you, including telephones, doorbells, and alarms.

What is cochlear implant and how it works?

Cochlear implant is an electronic device which is used in an effort to restore hearing sense to people with low or average hearing ability whose problem derives from the impairment of internal ear. Unlike conventional hearing assistance devices like hearing aid which merely strengthen the sounds, cochlear prothesis receives and processes sound signals, and then it delivers them to hearing nerves to be interpreted by patient brain.

The ear cochlear prosthesis is made up of two main components:

Its external part includes a microphone for ushering in the sound signals from the environment and a processor for turning the sound energy to electronic signals. This part is installed behind the ear and some of its types are hid beneath the hair.
The benefits of cochlear implant
Ear cochlear implant is one of the greatest breakthroughs of medical world. Cochlear implant breathes life into quality of social communication and consequently the quality of life of those with hearing impairment. Specially for children within language acquisition age, cochlear implant grease the wheel of language acquisition and speech understanding. Cochlear implant is also common among adults especially those who lost their hearing after the period of learning language.

Generally, cochlear implant is of following benefits:

  • Restoring the ability to hear the speech voices without any need to sign language and lip reading
  • Improvement in recognizing environmental voices
  • Improving in understanding the others people talk in noisy environment
  • Increase in sound direction recognition
    Facilitating using of audio communicative devices like television and telephone

Cochlear implant in children

It is worldwide to implant cochlear prothesis in the children with intense hearing impairment. Although some doctors consider suitable age of cochlear implant in the children from 2 to 6. However, the various investigation show that children before age of 18 months who undergo the cochlear implant surgery can understand the sound and music better than those who receive this device in higher age. However, it is important to not forget that for reaching the ideal outcome, the children should undergo the speech therapy and rehabilitation of hearing after cochlear implant.
Today the infants born with hearing impairment usually undergo other treatments until age of 6 months and then in the case of failure of those treatments they put in an application for cochlear implant.

Cochlear implantation in children

Children who undergo cochlear implant surgery before the age of 18 months have a better understanding of sound and music in adulthood.

In general, children with the following conditions are good candidates for cochlear implants:

They have deep hearing impairment in both ears;
Other hearing aids have done little to improve their hearing;
They are in good health for surgery and do not have a specific disease that makes it difficult for cochlear implant surgery;
Their parents and themselves (after reaching an older age) are aware of their role in the proper use of cochlear implants;
They can participate in a training program to strengthen their listening skills.

Cochlear implantation in adults

Adults can also be candidates for cochlear implant surgery, both those who have a hearing loss after learning a language and those who have a hearing loss before learning a language, although the success rate in the first group is usually higher than in the second group.

In general, cochlear implantation is recommended in adults with the following conditions:

Adults with severe hearing loss in both ears;
Adults whose hearing aids have not helped much to improve their hearing;
Adults who are physically fit for surgery and do not have a specific disease that makes cochlear implant surgery difficult;
Adults have a strong will to enter the world of listening and communicating through listening, speaking and lip-reading.

Cochlear implantation in adults

The success of the operation is greater in those who have hearing problems after learning the language.
Complications of cochlear implantation
Cochlear implantation is usually a low-risk surgery. However, like any other surgery, cochlear implantation may be associated with risks and complications in a low percentage of cases, the most important of which are:

Loss of residual normal hearing due to prosthesis placement;
Prosthesis inefficiency and need for re-surgery to replace or repair it;
In rare cases, complications such as bleeding, infection, imbalance, tinnitus, facial nerve palsy, changes in the sense of taste, and cerebro-spinal fluid leakage.
Pre-cochlear implant preparation

Before cochlear implant surgery, the doctor thoroughly examines the patient for the condition of the ear and auditory nerve. The doctor will also order a series of tests to test the patient’s hearing and speech and possibly balance. To check the condition of the cochlea and the health of the inner ear, the patient should have a CT scan and MRI of the skull.

Usually, a few days or weeks before the operation, it is necessary to follow some instructions that your doctor will explain to you. These include the rules of taking medications as well as the things that should be done before surgery. If you do not have enough information about this, you should contact an ear, nose and throat specialist to find out how to prepare yourself or your child for a cochlear implant.

How is a cochlear implant performed?

Cochlear implant surgery is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is completely unconscious during the operation and does not feel anything. This usually takes between 3 and 4 hours. In cochlear implant surgery, the surgeon makes a slit in the back of the ear and then inserts the mastoid into the middle ear by shaving the air cells and enters the cochlea through the round valve of the electrode. After implanting the various parts of the device, the surgeon sutures the incision.
Cochlear implant recovery period

People who have undergone cochlear implants usually need to be cared for in the hospital for one or two days after the operation. In the early days, due to the placement of the prosthesis in the inner ear, the patient may feel a tingling, imbalance or tinnitus, which resolves after a few days with medication. About a week after the operation, the patient needs to see a doctor for sutures and checkups.
Activate the cochlear device

Activation of the cochlear implant is not performed immediately after the operation. This is usually done 2 to 6 weeks after the operation and after the surgical area is completely healed. To do this, an audiologist will adjust the various parts of the device and teach you how to use it.
Hearing rehabilitation after cochlear implantation

Because the sounds heard by cochlear implants are not normal, the brain needs training to better understand them. Therefore, auditory rehabilitation after cochlear implant surgery has a great effect on the final result. Of course, hearing rehabilitation is different for children and infants. Children who have cochlear implants before learning the language usually need to participate in a hearing rehabilitation program for one to two sessions a week for a year, and sometimes for several years as needed so that patients can understand the meaning of the sounds they hear.

Cochlear implant in Iran: Auditory rehabilitation

The brain needs training to better understand the sounds heard by a cochlear prosthesis.

The purpose of hearing rehabilitation for adults who do cochlear implantation after learning the language is to adapt new sounds to different language meanings and help them understand music. The hearing rehabilitation program for adults is tailored to the results of the counseling sessions and varies from person to person.
