ABSTRACT
High-frequency deafness in children requires different surgical approaches in order to preserve the intracochlear structure for future therapies. This investigation proved that the residual hearing could be preserved and that the auditory development of the younger children is comparable to the profound deaf children with conventional CI implanted children.
