Abstract

The primary objective of this study was to document the benefits and possible detriments of combining ipsilateral acoustic hearing in the cochlear implant ear of a patient with preserved low frequency residual hearing post cochlear implantation. The secondary aim was to examine the efficacy of various cochlear implant mapping and hearing aid fitting strategies in relation to electro-acoustic benefits.
