Triphasic Pulses in Maestro 7

I have been reading about the ability to use triphasic pulses in Maestro 7 and how it is especially useful with people who have otosclerosis to avoid facial stim.

I have a few questions.

Which processors are able to use triphasic pulses?

Which internal implants are needed to use triphasic pulses?

If triphasic pulses are required due to facial stim, must all of the electrodes for that side use triphasic pulses or can you choose triphasic pulses on targeted electrodes?

Thank you.

Hi @Mary Beth

there are many different capabilities of MAESTRO 7, including triphasic pulses, and yes, there have been examples of it being useful for people in avoiding facial stimulation. There are various implants and audio processors that are compatible with MAESTRO 7 and can use triphasic pulses, including SYNCHRONY.

However, please be aware that the availability of the full range of MAESTRO 7 software capabilities, including triphasic pulses, depends on the country that you are using it in.

Kind regards,

Barbara

Nick from Med-El responded on their blog regarding if triphasic pulses had to be used on all electrodes or could be used just on certain electrodes that are causing facial stim issues.  Here is what he said:

Hello Mary Beth,
That's a great question. Currently, fitting with triphasic pulses would be implemented on all channels. However, this generally hasn’t been an issue for our triphasic users—performance on the other channels is not reduced.

Which processors can use triphasic pulses?

Can Rondo? OPUS 2?  Sonnet?

Hi @Mary Beth,

All of our current CI audio processors (OPUS 2, SONNET, RONDO and RONDO 2) which can be fitted by using MAESTRO  7 software, are capable to use triphasic pulses. But, as mentioned before, the availability of the full range of MAESTRO 7 software capabilities, including triphasic pulses, depends on the country that you are using it in.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Leigh
