HearPeers Heroes Mary Beth Posted May 15, 2020 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted May 15, 2020 I am glad this is getting attention. There are too many of us (me included) that end up performing way better than the patient related factors would suggest prior to surgery. It is time to stop using patient factors that no longer are indicative of CI success. It is time to identify patient factors that are indicative. Many people do not seek CIs because of... -number of years the ear was not processing sound etc. Best quote I have seen from a CI surgeon in a PPT professional presentation (sorry I do not recall his name).... ”The only way we know we have implanted the better ear, is to implant both ears.” https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaotolaryngology/fullarticle/2765789?guestAccessKey=5a717407-1528-4571-9279-a02eb69b48fe&utm_source=silverchair&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=article_alert-jamaotolaryngology&utm_content=olf&utm_term=051420 Kylie 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
