I have bilateral CI. My first implant (Mi1000 MED_EL CONCERT, Flex 28 on left ear) was successful but the second implant is not working from day one. It has sound but little speech recognition (about 11%). The sound is very high pitched as test shows that electrode number 11 and 12 are drawing high current and had to be disabled for mapping. In addition, CT scan showed that the bad ear has the electrode array inserted to the middle of the cochlear not at the apical area. Not sure if this is electrode migration. I am looking into redoing the implant. Do anyone have the same problem and share th
As I am doing my research into this wonderful world of cochlear implantation, I am focusing on what I believe is the single most important piece of the puzzle - the internal electrode array. That is what causes an implantee to marry a specific brand for life. I've learned about Med El's electrode arrays, and like their features such as electrode positioning and the wavy wiring versus straight wiring to be more flexible within the cochlea itself. Now, I am curious as to the technology of the little "black box" which I presume is like a graphic equalizer which takes the input from the
