Abstract

This study compares speech recognition outcomes before and after cochlear reimplantation surgery, in relation to clinical factors known before and at time of surgery. Between 2006 and 2015, 2,055 adult cochlear implant surgeries were conducted at this center, of which 87 were reimplantation surgeries (4.2%). Speech recognition scores (SRS) assessed before and after reimplantation were available for 54 adults. Overall, SRS measured after reimplantation were similar to the best SRS obtained by the patient and greater than the last SRS measured before surgery. Additional complications were noted in the clinical files of all patients for which reimplantation was considered unsuccessful (16%).
