Purpose: The purpose of this study is 1) to evaluate the safety and efficacy of currently available multichannel cochlear implant systems for newly implanted adults with an indication based on open-set sentence recognition that expand criteria currently used by Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and 2) to assess the correlation between measures of speech recognition in candidates for cochlear implants and their utility in predicting audiologic and quality of life outcomes after implantation.
