Özet

Recent reports indicate that the cochlear nerve may be absent in some cases of congenital sensorineural hearing loss. The aim of this prospective study was to determine the incidence of cochlear nerve anomaly in cochlear implant candidates with congenital hearing loss using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Twenty-seven patients with congenital profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss who were being evaluated for the cochlear implant procedure were studied.
