Cochlear Implants and Other Implantable Hearing Devices, Second Edition remains a fundamental text for hearing professionals. Cochlear implants and other implantable hearing mechanisms have become increasingly prevalent solutions to modern-day hearing trauma, making it imperative for clinicians to gain expertise on the subject. This text provides hearing professionals with the knowledge necessary to wholly understand these implantable mechanisms so that they can incorporate them into their practices.

Review

"Cochlear Implants and Other Implantable Hearing Devices edited by Michael J. Ruckenstein (2020) is a comprehensive guide to implantable Otologic devices. The authorship team is comprised of numerous leaders in their respective fields of Audiology, Auditory/Communication sciences, and Otology/Neurotology. Their unique perspectives collectively shape one of the more well-rounded texts on cochlear and otologic implants.

The guide’s first several chapters form foundational knowledge that leads to higher level topics encountered later. Each is accompanied by sub-headings, which provide quick reference points and carefully selected figures complement the text. Every facet of cochlear implantation is examined including device technology (Ch. 3), candidate selection (Ch. 5), diagnostic imaging considerations (Ch. 6), surgical techniques (Ch. 8), programming in adult and pediatric patients (Ch.’s 11-12), and audiometric outcomes (Ch. 13-14). Later chapters focus on more nuanced topics of revision cochlear implantation (Ch. 18), auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (Ch. 17), and music appreciation in CI patients (Ch. 16). Furthermore, less commonly employed technologies such as auditory brainstem implantation and middle ear implants are reviewed (Ch.’s 19-21).

Each chapter does an effective job in referencing primary literature while providing pertinent applications to the real-world patient. For example, the unique challenges of preoperative counselling around bone conduction devices in single-sided deafness are highlighted in Chapter 20. Another prime example of how this textbook has shaped my learning as a Fellow is a list of succinct, critical points for assessing preoperative imaging in preparation for a patient’s cochlear implantation.

This text serves as a valuable reference for Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgeons, Speech Language Pathologists, Audiologists, Nurse Practitioners and Neuroscientists. It provides detailed insights into understanding the historical context, current landscape, and future direction of this unique field. I’ve had the unique opportunity of referencing this textbook on countless occasions and would encourage anyone involved in this field to consider acquiring it."
