Auditory Brainstem Implants
« on: March 24, 2010, 09:30:59 am »
There is an article today about auditory brainstem implants. I thought it was a good description of what it is all about.

Maybe, it will interest somebody.

Right side AN (6x3x3 cm) removed in 1988 by Drs. Benjamin & Cohen at NYU (16 hrs); nerves involved III - XII.
Regrowth at the brainstem 2.5 cm removed by Dr.Shahinian in 4 hrs at SBI (hopefully, this time forever); nerves involved IV - X with VIII missing. No facial or swallowing issues.
