Abstract

Since its inception in 1988 the Cochlear Implant Programme in Manchester has successfully implanted 69 adults and 23 children. Of these 92 procedures, three patients have undergone revision surgery with the insertion of either a new implant or re-positioning of the existing device. We examine the circumstances that lead to the need for reimplantation in these patients, discuss the technical aspects of revision surgery together with the functional results of such procedures.
