    Abstract

    We describe the word recognition ability of 50 patients who use the multichannel cochlear implant manufactured by Symbion, Inc. The median scores for open set tests involving auditory stimulation alone were: 14% correct (range 0 to 60) for monosyllabic words, 44% correct (range 0 to 100) for spondees, and 45% correct (range 0 to 100) for words in the Everyday CID Sentences. In the visual stimulation condition of the Everyday CID Sentences, the median score was 64% correct (range 0 to 100). In the visual plus auditory stimulation condition, the median score was 99% correct (range 46 to 100). These results demonstrate that relatively good speech understanding can be achieved using a cochlear implant which employs only a few channels of stimulation adn which simultaneously activates monopolar electrodes.
