ABSTRACT
During the last several decades, cochlear implant has been fully recognized in treatment of severe hearing loss. Development of modern technology enabled inconceivable possibilities of technical qualities of the device as well as development of usable coding strategies, which led to extraordinary results in patient rehabilitation. Although cochlear implantation has become one of the routine operative procedures throughout the world nowadays, it gives rise to certain complications.
