The CI532 Profile Series Cochlear Implant, featuring the new Slim Modiolar electrode, is the newest addition to Cochlear’s electrode portfolio and is now available for clinical use. The Slim Modiolar electrode combines the advantages of perimodiolar stimulation, as demonstrated by the Contour Advance electrode, with the thin, flexible physical properties of the Slim Straight electrode. Perimodiolar positioning has been previously associated with improved psychophysical and hearing performance outcomes. Rocky Mountain Ear Center (RMEC) in Denver, Colorado (USA) incorporated the CI532 Slim Modiolar electrode (CI532) implant into our clinical practice April of 2016. Since introduction, 72 patients have received the device. The information contained herein details clinical experience to date.
