Material type: materialTypeLabelArticleSubject(s): Cochlear implantation | Deaf adults | Hearing loss | TinnitusOnline resources: Click here to access online In: Otology & Neurotology 2015Abstract: This study aimed to determine the impact of cochlear implantation on speech understanding in noise, subjective perception of hearing, and tinnitus perception of adult patients with unilateral severe to profound hearing loss and to investigate whether duration of deafness and age at implantation would influence the outcomes. In addition, this article describes the auditory training protocol used for unilaterally deaf patients. Design: This is a prospective study of subjects undergoing cochlear implantation for unilateral deafnesswith orwithout associated tinnitus. Methods: Speech perception in noise was tested using the Bamford-Kowal-Bench speech-in-noise test presented at 65 dB SPL. The Speech, Spatial, and Qualities of Hearing Scale and the Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit were used to evaluate the subjective perception of hearing with a cochlear implant and quality of life. Tinnitus disturbance wasmeasured using the Tinnitus Reaction Questionnaire. Data were collected before cochlear implantation and 3, 6, 12, and 24 months after implantation.
