The benefits of the multiple-channel cochlear implant have now been established in a series of studies presented to scientific journals and in an NIH Consensus report. There are, however, still many patients in need of the procedure who are not receiving help. In many cases these adults and parents of deaf children are unaware of the benefits of the device. There is, therefore, a great need to provide up to date information through a number of channels. These should be through the medical/ scientific community, and in particular professional associations in Otolaryngology, Audiology, Speech Pathology and Education of the Deaf. It would be helpful too if there was an official association concerned with cochlear implantation. As the procedure, one might say, has come of age, it is now timely to think of perhaps even a journal where publications of significance can be dispersed. The importance of cochlear implantation has been emphasised at the forthcoming XVI World Congress of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery in Sydney 2-7 March, 1997 where the invited and free papers in this sub-specialty account for approximately 10% of the total number of presentations at the Congress.
