Utilization of SmartNav technology in cochlear implantation: optimizing efficiency in assessment of electrode placement


Proper electrode placement is essential for favorable hearing outcomes following cochlear implantation. Though often used, traditional intraoperative X-ray imaging is time consuming, exposes patients and staff to radiation, and poses interpretational challenges. The Nucleus® SmartNav System, utilizes electrode voltage telemetry (EVT) to analyze the positioning of the electrode array intraoperatively. This study investigates the efficacy of SmartNav in optimizing the efficiency and accuracy of assessing electrode placement.
