If cochlear implants are to be used on patients, it is important that experimental studies should be carried out on animals so that tissue tolerance and other long term effects of electrode implantations can be assessed. Consequently, an experimental study by Simmons (1967) is of interest, as it has shown that a stainless steel electrode inserted into the basal turn of the cochlea through the round window can be tolerated, and not lead to permanent damage unless infection supervenes. Furthermore, in a study by Axelsson and Hallen (1973) it has been demonstrated that drilling an opening in the cochlea will usually only lead to localized damage of the cochlear structures, and that the opening in the bone normally heals.
