This prosthesis replaces the function of the damaged portions of the middle ear (cochlea). It consists of two parts: an internal that is placed in the skull by surgery and external that sits behind the ear. Implants are indicated for people who have damaged hair cells in the cochlea and, while not re-establish normal hearing can help deaf or severely hard of hearing people to understand speech. Both children and adults can benefit from cochlear implants. In any case, the patient should follow a rehabilitation speech therapy after placement of the device. ...
Deafness is hard of hearing or total inability to use this. If the loss is partial hearing loss is called if the total deafness.

There are two main groups of surgical procedures: Tympanoplasty and mastoidectomy. Tympanoplasty encompasses ossiculoplasty (repair of bones) and myringoplasty (closing holes in the eardrum). To perform this type of surgery, you enter the middle ear through a cut behind the ear or inside the ear canal and the relevant procedures are performed, depending on the injury presented by the patient. Intervention may include removing any infection or dead tissue in the eardrum to place a graft to repair a perforation in the tympanic membrane or put a prosthesis to replace a damaged bone. Tympanoplasty is indicated in cases of large perforations of the eardrum or middle ear infections, including chronic or acute otitis media, which can not be cured with antibiotics. The masteidoctomía is an operation to remove the air-filled cavities of the skull located behind the ear (temporal bone), performed to treat infections of the mastoid portion of the skull that complications of otitis media, abnormal bone growths, cholesteatoma ( cyst skin cells in the middle ear) or to place cochlear implants. ...
