He and his team expect to perform their first auditory brainstem implant later this spring at University Hospital.

Candidates for auditory brainstem implants have suffered injury to both cochlear nerves, were born without a cochlear nerve, or suffer from neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF-2), a genetic condition that frequently causes tumors (acoustic neuromas) to form on the 8th cranial nerve near the ear on both sides of the head.

Although the tumors are benign, they are disruptive and must be removed. Removal, unfortunately, can result in permanent hearing loss.

Cincinnati's multi-site team in cochlear implantation includes the UC Neuroscience Institute, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Samy studied auditory brainstem implants while he was a fellow at the University of Iowa.

"Clinical management of patients with neurofibromatosis 2 is challenging, and the successful application of Auditory Brainstem Implant (ABI) technology in this population can be complex," says Christine Menapace, vice president of clinical studies, education and training at Cochlear Americas. "It requires an experienced, multi-disciplinary team that includes otology, neurosurgery, electrophysiology and audiology."

Samy's continuing work with cochlear and auditory brainstem implants will include education of the community.

"Many people are misinformed about the implants," he says. "They assume that because it doesn't return hearing to normal we shouldn't be using it. My thinking is that as we gain experience with this devi
