Abstract

Over the past two decades, cochlear implantation has become a widely accepted treatment of deafness in children. Over 20,000 children have received cochlear implants worldwide. Hearing, language and social development outcomes have been positive. We review current issues in cochlear implantation, candidacy, evaluation, surgery, habilitation, ethics and outcomes.
