OBJECTIVES: To evaluate speech recognition performances in post-lingually deaf adult cochlear implant recipients using two different stimulation rates (260 pps/e and 600 pps/e) in the setting of the MPIS strategy combined with the MXM-Neurelec Digisonic SP cochlear implant system. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ten post-lingually deaf adults who consecutively received a Neurelec-MXM Digisonic SP device at the CI Center of the University of Parma participated in the study. The study was conducted prospectively as a within-subject repeated measures (ABA protocol) between January 2007 and January 2008. Each subject was exposed to and sequentially tested with two different rates of stimulation (260 pps/e and 600 pps/e), in quiet and in a noisy environment. Statistical analysis was performed on the data obtained. RESULTS: Subjects using the MPIS strategy with a stimulation rate of 600 pps/e performed significantly better in words and phrases recognition tests in both a noisy and a quiet environment.
