Paper Abstract

Advancements in implantable auditory prostheses now demand preservation of residual auditory function following the surgery. Atraumatic cochleostomy formation is essential to this goal. Clinically reported hearing outcomes in human implantation are still quite variable in this regard. The objective of the manuscript is to report on clinical indications and supportive laboratory evidence that the handheld CO2 laser fiber (BeamPath® OTO-S, OmniGuide® Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA) is an effective tool for creating a soft cochleostomy.
