Unilateral Hearing Loss, Tinnitus and...a Cochlear Implant?

Posted Sep 13 2010 9:50am
I asked a question during the conference I attended this past weekend, because a gentleman on the Italian forum asked whether or not the Cochlear Implant provoked tinnitus or could worsen tinnitus. My surgeon responded that in 70% of the cases, the tinnitus improved, and that there are ongoing trials where adults with really bad tinnitus and unilateral hearing loss are receiving cochlear implants to relieve the tinnitus.

I found that fascinating so I began to surf.
The only article touching on this that I almost found is available here.
It mentions the idea, but the site was not available, so I haven't read the article.
Just throwing it out there because it's the first time I've ever heard of cochlear implants being okayed in unilateral hearing loss.
