The Auditory Nerve Test System (ANTS) is a novel device that stimulates the auditory nerve much like a cochlear implant. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate feasibility of the ANTS during translabyrinthine surgery for vestibular schwannoma resection. If the auditory nerve is kept intact, then the patients will also receive a cochlear implant at the same time potentially alleviating the morbidities caused by a vestibular schwannoma and asymmetric sensorineural hearing loss.

This longitudinal study evaluates the possible benefit of cochlear implantation in the poor ear of adults with asymmetric hearing loss who continue to use a hearing aid in the better hearing ear.

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.
