Best Auditory Brainstem Implant Package in New Delhi, India

Breaking the sound Barrier.........

What is an Auditory Brainstem Implant ?
An auditory brainstem implant (ABI) provides a sensation of hearing to deaf people by directly stimulating the cochlear nucleus in the brain. This implant uses similar technology as the cochlear implant, but instead of electrical stimulation being used to stimulate the cochlea, it is used to directly stimulate the cochlear nucleus in the brain stem of the recipient. Because it bypasses the cochlear nerves, the device is most useful for people who have an absence or damage to the cochlea or cochlear nerves (which precludes the use of a cochlear implant).

Auditory Brainstem Implant Surgery
This operation is done along with an experienced neurosurgeon. Hospital stay is likely to be a week.
ABI surgery may last for 6 to 8 hours and is performed while the patient is under general anaesthesia. The electrode array is inserted into the brainstem. The receiver/stimulator is secured to the skull. Typically, patients remain in the ICU for a night before being shifted to their room. They have a bandage on their head which is removed after a week.

How does an ABI work ?
The device comprises a processor positioned by the ear, a receiver/stimulator and an array of electrodes. The electrode array of the ABI connects directly to the brainstem, bypassing the damaged cochlea and cochlear nerves. The microphone in the processor picks up sounds from the environment and digitally transmits them to the receiver stimulator placed under the skin. The receiver/stimulator stimulates the brainstem electrodes, allowing the patient to hear a variety of sounds.

Who can benefit from an ABI ?
Any adult or child with bilateral (both ears) severe to profound sensorineural (nerve) hearing loss who might have been candidates for a cochlear implant but cannot receive a cochlear implant due to absence or damage to the cochlea or cochlear nerves would be a candidate for an ABI. Such situations may occur due to trauma, illness(such as meningitis), tumours of the hearing nerve(acoustic neuromas as in NF2) or may be a birth anomaly.

Postoperative (Re)Habilitation
(Re)Habilitation is an essential part for those who have undergone ABI and may be carried out at the hospital or at a centre close to the patients home. All patients need Auditory Verbal Therapy (AVT). The range of sound will not be to the level provided by cochlear implants, but it provides increased environmental sound awareness. Most patients are able to hear sounds and the degree of hearing usefulness can vary greatly. Some people get good word recognition, while others get more general sound cues. In combination with lipreading, the cues help improve communication with others. Our hope is that this can give patients a much improved quality of life.

  • Hospital Stay: 2 days.
  • Stay in India- 3-4 weeks.
  • All pre-op investigations.
