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.

"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."

"The second edition of Cochlear Implant Patient Assessment aims to become a point of reference for all professionals involved in assessing cochlear implant candidacy and interested in broadening their knowledge to maximise the hearing capabilities of their patients.
This book offers the reader a chance to explore Gifford’s reflections and recommendations onto an often-overlooked topic. The strength of this book is its focus on everyday clinical practice and guided advice for local clinics to derive their own science-based protocols to suit their clinical needs. Professor Rene Gifford is the current Director of the Cochlear Implant Program at the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center. She has published extensive peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and her special interests are in hearing preservation, electro-acoustic stimulation, preoperative prediction of postoperative outcomes and image guided programming.
This resource encompasses all aspects of candidacy, from funding and regulation to the different roles of the multidisciplinary team, including surgery and insights on new research. Included in the book is a companion website with access to sample protocols and test batteries. I particularly enjoyed reading about electrode array positioning and the consequences of mapping blindly without postoperative imaging, with advice on how to navigate this dilemma using new tools. The holistic vision to include input from a wider range of professionals such as clinical psychologist and imaging experts to drive the field of cochlear implantation forward was compelling. The degree of visual takeover of auditory cortical areas as a predictor of outcomes as part of cross-modal plasticity experiments was thought provoking. [...]
This book is a must-have resource for inquisitive clinicians and serves as a repository for concise summaries of up to date scientific publications."
