The value of cochlear implants as an established clinical option for profoundly hearing-impaired adults and children has been supported by significant research results over a number of years (U.S. National Institutes of Health Consensus Statement 1995). As a direct consequence of the level of benefits shown for cochlear implant users on measures of speech perception, research has focused on investigating whether severely hearing impaired adults and children would be suitable candidates for cochlear implantation. I n considering the candidature of any individual, both medical and audiological suitability are investigated. The primary concern is to establish to what degree the patient would benefit from use of the cochlear implant.
