Article about auditory brainstem implant
« on: January 31, 2008, 08:28:44 pm »
In today medical news there is an article about ABI. I thought only HEI does it but this article talks about Ohio.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/01/080130175721.htm

Hope somebody will find it helpful.

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.

Nice article. Thanks for sharing. And you are right: the ABI was pioneered at House, but there are now many other places that do them.
Have a great day,
