Implant Center Freiburg (ICF) CI, ABI, implantable hearing devices Re-habilitation and long-term-care > 2500 CI patients > 250 CI surgeries /y. Adults + children Center of competence Baden- Württemberg Interdisciplinary team: ENT, audiology, speech and language therapy, linguistics, psychology, music therapy, technicians… (n=44) certified rehabilitation center (BAR)
Age at surgery NHS, diagnostics and HA experience for 4 m., decision at 8 m. Surgical point of view: ideal at/around 10 m. Surgical technique: atraumatic Specialized centers for surgery in the very young? Data on even earlier surgery? (Colletti et al. 2012…
Fact and fiction? – Age at surgery (Germany) Significant increase for surgeries <24 m. to 2006: 25,2% <2 y., ,3% < 2 y. still, 53,7% of children are older than 24 m. Reason? Late provision with HA, reservations against early surgery, add. med. factors, progressive hearing loss! (Fitzpatrick et al. 2011) 2012 %

Bilateral CI Schafer et al (Int J Audiol) "A meta-analysis to compare speech recognition in noise with bilateral cochlear implants and bimodal stimulation" (42 studies analysed): binaural advantages in bilaterale CI`s: squelch (central noise reduction), summation, head-shadow effect advantage compared to bimodal stimulation German "Guideline CI": bilateral CI whenever possible German health insurance: bilateral CI in cases at risk of or with obliteration/meningitis all others: single-case decision, sequentially or simultaneously All centers: increasing number of bilaterals, no combined approach UK: National Paediatric Bilateral Cochlear Implant Audit
Bilateral situation in Freiburg N= 2234 (Stand ) Mean intervall 1st to 2nd implant (all p. up to 18 y.): 5.9 years! Since 2006: significant reduction to 1.7 y. improved counseling Aim: 2nd CI within 12 m. Bilaterale n=446 Kinder n=281 Sequentiell Kinder n=229 Intervall in Jahren, Alter bis 12 J.
Late sequential BCI: Results OLSA at 70 dB in quiet, *progressive HL, n=15, mean interval between 1st and 2nd CI: 8 y., (r: 4-12 y.) Delay: necessary time to reach results of 1st ear or stable longterm result Not all will acchieve identical results, chance of drop out and, finally, rejection of 2 nd implant * numbers * develop Delay: <1y. 1y. 2y. 3y. 4y.
The sequential problem Late sequential BCI: negative effect visible at time interval of >12 M, Gordon et al Bilateral advantage correlated to time between surgeries, interval >8 y. seems critical Steffens et al (H, RB, FR) Exemption: progressive hearing loss!
…and… where´s the beef? New field: auditory rehabilitation in single-sided deafness and asymmetric hearing loss Similar considerations, similar factors to influence results
Why bother? 70-93% report difficulties for speech comprehension in noise, independent of age (Coletti et al. 1988; Ruscetta et al. 2005; Priwin et al. 2007; Wie et al. 2009) 12-41% of children require additional support in school (Bess & Tharpe 1986; Bovo et al. 1988) 22-35% of children have to repeat classes (Bess and Tharpe 1986; Brockhauser et al. 1991; Cho Lieu et al. 2004) Misinterpretation hyperactivity Results in adults are encouraging therapy in children as well
Etiology children (n=16) n=11 congenital, n=4 erworben, n=1 non organic Etiology (incl. 1 CHARGE) Freiburg: only n=8 qualified for a CI! Kutz et al. 2011: deficient nerve: limited results, absent nerve: poor results

Etiology children SSD II HRCT: IAM normal, MRI: CND/aplasia of VIIIth nerve, n=5 CHARGE, N VII aplasia R, N VIII aplasia L

Rehabilitation in patients with unilateral deafness Study design primary objective: audiometric test results (speech discrimination in noise, localisation) unaided, Baha, CROS-HA trial period for each device 3 weeks (Baha BP100 headband/CROS-HA; Phonak Una M) CI recommended, if patients fitted the inclusion criteria (duration of deafness 10 years, intact auditory nerve) secondary objective: results after 12 months with chosen device (CROS; Baha; CI) comparison between the devices subjective evaluation with SSQ scale

Conclusion after 12 months device experience: superior results with CI in speech discrimination in all conditions significant improvement in localisation with CI outcome/ rehabilitation time may be correlated to duration of deafness, training necessary patients with long duration of deafness rather benefit from Baha or CROS device CI with long duration of deafness: more data necessary critical question: duration of deafness to still recommend CI If patients are within inclusion criteria for CI: first choice CI second choice Baha or CROS (better results with Baha) Baha and CROS cannot prevent deprivation of the auditory pathway
