One of the major problems facing otologists today is the treatment of perceptive deafness. The results of treating patients with deafness due to middle-ear disease are now good, but this is not the case when there is damage to the inner ear or central auditory pathways. A hearing aid will assist a great many people, but there are a number of patients with very severe or total deafness who cannot be helped in this way. Consequently, a different approach to the problem must be made, and for this reason, electrical stimulation of the cochlea or auditory pathways to reproduce the natural stimulus may provide a solution.
