5 tools to expand your knowledge on the Slim Modiolar Electrode


1. Cochlear NEXT Video Series

In Spring 2019, sixty-five of your peers came together to discuss Cochlear’s CI532 Clinical Study and the implications of this emerging and impactful data.

The Cochlear NEXT video series captures the highlights of the day’s presentations with a focus on the surgical and clinical outcomes of the CI532 Clinical Study. It also discusses opportunities for hearing preservation with the Slim Modiolar electrode.

2. Audiology Online Course: Setting a New Benchmark with the Slim Modiolar Electrode

Did you miss Audiology Online’s webinar on the recent clinical evidence surrounding the Slim Modiolar electrode and its impact on performance? Watch the course now!

After attending this course you’ll be able to:

  • Explain the clinical evidence supporting the use and performance of perimodiolar electrode arrays
  • List audiological considerations with the Slim Modiolar array
  • Understand the outcomes of the new multicenter trial and bimodal benefits of the Nucleus® 7 system with Slim Modiolar

3. Educational Webinar: CI532 Best Practices – A Surgeon’s Perspective

Join NYU’s Dr. Thomas Roland in his March 2019 webinar as he discusses his experiences and best practices with the CI532 Slim Modiolar Electrode.

Topics include:

  • NYU surgical and speech performance outcomes
  • Surgical best practices
  • Case management
  • When to use CI532

4. TECH TALK: The CI532 Slim Modiolar Electrode Advantage

Dr. Anil Lalwani, Vice Chair of Research in Otolaryngology, Head, Neck and Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center, prefers the Slim Modiolar electrode above the rest.

In this TECH Talk, he outlines the many advantages to the Slim Modiolar Electrode including its small size, proximity to the modiolus and atraumatic properties. Further, his experience demonstrates that the Slim Modiolar electrode may preserve hearing and protects the electrode through the sheath function, preventing chances of getting stuck. Because the Slim Modiolar minimizes variation in surgical technique and chances of intracochlear trauma, it takes the lead as the safer option with a focus on patient outcomes.1

5. Journal Club: Speech recognition as a function of the number of channels in perimodiolar electrode recipients

This Journal Club explores a recent study by the team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in a March 2019 publication, Speech recognition as a function of the number of channels in perimodiolar electrode recipients. This study revealed that increasing the number of electrodes resulted in improved performance and sound quality. Findings were statistically significant in demonstrating that the subjects with the electrodes closest to the modiolus had the best performance.
