MAESTRO CI System Candidacy

The MAESTRO™ Cochlear Implant System is intended to evoke auditory sensations via electrical stimulation of the auditory pathways in severely to profoundly hearing impaired individuals. These individuals obtain little or no benefit from acoustic amplification in the best aided condition. The following criteria may help to determine candidacy:

  • To be eligible for cochlear implantation, candidates must have a functional auditory nerve and must be preoperatively assessed
  • MED-EL strongly recommends using optimally fitted hearing aids for a minimum of three months before deciding whether a cochlear implant is the best option
  • Candidates should be sufficiently motivated, realistic about the benefits of cochlear implantation, and educated about participation in regular audio processor programming, assessment and training
