Abstract

This retrospective study is based on the assessment of outcomes of Cochlear Implantation taking into account various scoring systems like Category of Auditory Performance (CAP) and Speech Intelligibility Rating (SIR). 100 candidates who were implanted between June 1997- June 2005 at Madras ENT Research Foundation (MERF), a tertiary referral center for cochlear implantation were included in the study. The results were analyzed using the above scoring systems to assess the performance levels of each implantee and to arrive at a cumulative result on the outcome of the implantation. Practical issues of concern to Cochlear Implantation in the Indian subcontinent were also analyzed
