There is an important need to fix the cochlear implant electrode array at a site close to the cochlea, so that the electrode will not slide out, or be subject to differential movement with growth changes. Fixation sites have been in the region of the posterior root of the zygoma and the floor of the antrum. Fixation has been by Dacron mesh ties platinum wire ties, or clips inserted with-special instruments. Biological cements have previously been tried but found to be toxic. The most ideal site is in the region of the cochleostomy.
