Abstract: 

APPLICATION OF THE RECENTLY INTRODUCED SOFTWARE (SOUNDWAVE) IN 2004 FOR PROGRAMMING OF SOUND PROCESSORS OF CLARION COCHLEAR IMPLANT SYSTEMS CAN BE CONSIDERED A BENEFICIAL METHOD FOR PREVENTING COCHLEAR RE-IMPLANTATION IN SOME SPECIAL IMPLANTS. A PRE-LINGUALLY DEAF GIRL WAS IMPLANTED ON A 1.8-YEAR-OLD INDIVIDUAL WITH CLARION 1.2 IN THE AMIR AALAM HOSPITAL IN FEBRUARY 1998, AND PROGRAMMED WITH SCLIN 2000 SOFTWARE. SHE WAS RE-IMPLANTED IN OCTOBER 2004 WITH CLARION CII AFTER HAVING THE IMPLANT CRASHED IN AN ACCIDENT. ONE YEAR LATER, THE PATIENT WAS REFERRED TO THE CLINIC WITH A SUDDEN INAUDIBILITY SOUND COMPLAINT, WITH THE DEVICE UNABLE TO BE DETECTED BY SCLIN 2000 SOFTWARE. THEREFORE, SHE WAS A CANDIDATE FOR ANOTHER RE-IMPLANTATION. IN AN ATTEMPT TO DO TWO SESSIONS OF PROGRAMMING, WE CHANGED THE SCENARIO THROUGH THE SOFTWARE MANEUVERING. TO DO THIS, WE USED SOUNDWAVE SOFTWARE INSTEAD OF SCLIN 2000. INTERESTINGLY, THE IMPLANT WAS DETECTED WITH SOUNDWAVE SOFTWARE, AND THAT CAUSED A DEFENSE AGAINST THE PATIENT’S RE-IMPLANTATION. MAYBE THE SPECIFIC RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) OF THIS NEW SOFTWARE INVOLVED FOR DETECTING OF IMPLANT.
