This paper describes a radiologic evaluation of three types of peri-modiolar arrays, comparing their trajectory within the scala tympani with a standard Mini-22 electrode. All peri-modiolar arrays were found to lie closer to the modiolus for much of their insertion length compared with the standard array. While one design showed evidence for the potential of increased insertion trauma, two designs produced satisfactory results. Although further electrode development, temporal bone and histopathologic studies arE required, it would appear that the benefits of peri-modiolar electrode arrays will be realised clinically.
