While it has been shown that the straight but flexible banded electrode array can be safely inserted into the scala tympani of the human cochlea, histological studies have revealed that the array lies along the outer walll.2. Since a profound total hearing loss is generally associated with a moderate to complete degeneration of the spiral ganglion peripheral process, these electrodes lie some distance from their target neural population -the spiral ganglion soma -located within Rosenthal's canal.
