雙側人工耳蝸植入

雙側人工耳蝸植入是在兩邊耳朵植入裝置,或使用兩部人工耳蝸植入體。 雙側聽力植入在失聰兒童發育方面的優點已經在多項臨床研究獲得證實。1,2,3這些研究顯示特別是在語言學習的重要期間,一些兒童從雙側植入獲得有可能有助於他們發展聽力技能的獨特好處,包括聲源定位等。
 

許多家長報稱接受了第二部植入裝置後,他們的孩子更能夠在學校專心學習。 另一些則報稱他們的孩子更能夠定位聲音的來源。臨床研究結果也支持這些結論。 例如,接受第二植入裝置的兒童已證實有較好的溝通行為。 這些兒童展示出對言語較佳的理解能力,在使用兩部植入裝置時可大幅增加嘈雜環境內對語音的理解度。4 此外,雙側植入的兒童在具挑戰性環境中展示出更好的聽力技能。5
