The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcomes of patients with Cogan syndrome (CS) who have undergone cochlear implantation. Subjects consisted of 12 cochlear implant users with a typical form of CS. Measures included word and sentence recognition scores. The speech recognition performance was rated before cochlear implantation and at 1 and 5 years after implantation. The speech materials were presented in quiet only condition. The mean 12-month post-operative word and sentence recognition scores were 91.4 and 93.1 %, respectively. Five years after implantation, the group means for word and sentence recognition tests were 94 and 96.3 %, respectively. No patients in this series experienced flap complication or other local or systemic complications. This long-term study on 12 subjects with CS over 5 years of cochlear implant use reveals that cochlear implantation is safe in the long term and provides excellent and stable hearing results.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcomes of patients with Cogan syndrome (CS) who have undergone cochlear implantation. Subjects consisted of 12 cochlear implant users with a typical form of CS. Measures included word and sentence recognition scores. The speech recognition performance was rated before cochlear implantation and at 1 and 5 years after implantation. The speech materials were presented in quiet only condition. The mean 12-month post-operative word and sentence recognition scores were 91.4 and 93.1 %, respectively. Five years after implantation, the group means for word and sentence recognition tests were 94 and 96.3 %, respectively. No patients in this series experienced flap complication or other local or systemic complications. This long-term study on 12 subjects with CS over 5 years of cochlear implant use reveals that cochlear implantation is safe in the long term and provides excellent and stable hearing results.
