HEARRING Network Meeting in Wiesbaden took place on 24-26 of October 2022 and it was spectacular! We were beyond excited to see our members reconnect in person after three years, exchange their profound experience and share thoughts on the hottest topics in cochlear implantation. We believe such events are key to pushing the limits and raising the standards of quality all over the world!

The presentations of our experts touched upon a wide range of highly important topics, such as access to hearing technologies in different countries, global quality standards, artificial intelligence in medicine and anatomy-based fitting. The recordings of several sessions will be soon available on our Learning Platform HEARRING Boost, so stay tuned for updates!

We are truly grateful to everyone who participated and are already looking forward to our next Network Meeting in 2023.

Audiological outcomes of robot-assisted cochlear implant surgery

Audiological outcomes
of robot-assisted
cochlear implant surgery

Today we have a very special state-of-the-art paper to share with you! It’s titled “Audiological outcomes of robot-assisted cochlear implant surgery”. It was co-authored by our renowned experts from Antwerp Prof. Paul Van de Heyning. Prof.  Vincent Van Rompaey, Prof. Griet Mertens and Prof. Vedat Topsakal.

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the short-term and long-term audiological outcomes in patients who underwent cochlear implantation with a robot-assisted system to enable access to the cochlea, and to compare outcomes with a matched control group of patients who underwent cochlear implantation with conventional access to the cochlea.
