... Abstract Cochlear implantation (CI) has proven to be an effective treatment for severe bilateral sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Inner ear malformation is a rare anomaly and occurs in approximately 20% of cases with congenital SNHL. In cases with cochlear malformation, CI can be successfully...

... Abstract The functional changes that occur in the brain due to deafness may affect the way the auditory system processes sound after cochlear implantation. Brain plasticity plays a crucial role in the success of cochlear implantation to facilitate or develop spoken language in profoundly deaf...

... Abstract More than 20 years have passed since cochlear implantation (CI) was first introduced in Japan. We began CI at the Sapporo Medical University Hospital in 1988; since then, up to the first half of 2015, we have performed CI on 280 ears. In patients aged less than and those aged over 18...

... Abstract In the sensory hair cells of the mammalian cochlea, the primary cilia in the planar cell polarity as well as the tight junctions in the epithelial cell polarity and the barrier are important to maintain normal hearing. Temperature-sensitive mouse cochlear precursor hair cells were used...
