The diagnosis of Auditory Neuropathy/Dys-synchrony in a child with a sensorineural hearing loss will quickly raise the possibility of cochlear implantation in some of these children. Our experience to date has resulted in providing cochlear implants to 35 children with this diagnosis. This presentation will review our diagnostic procedures, medical/surgical considerations and the outcomes that we have documented in this population of pediatric patients.
