Alexandria, Egypt, ORL, Alexandria, Egypt
During the period of twenty years, we have performed over one hundred single channel implants. The models
used included 3M-House, All-Hear, and MED-EL. The results will be discussed in answering the following
questions: is speech understanding possible and predictable, electrical versus acoustic hearing, effect on tinnitus
and residual hearing, hardware vs software differences, breakdowns and battery consumption, programming and
follow-ups, surgical issues, and possible new indications in the future.
