Cochlear Americas Receives FDA Approval of the World's Thinnest, Full Length Electrode for Cochlear Implantation
Date:6/12/2012

CENTENNIAL, Colo., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cochlear Americas announced today that the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Nucleus CI422 with Slim Straight Electrode, the newest electrode in its broad portfolio of implantable hearing solutions. The Slim Straight, along with other Cochlear electrodes, is uniquely designed for preservation of delicate cochlear structures, to deliver the best possible hearing performance and to accommodate specific preferences with anatomy and technique in the widest range of patient conditions.

"This approval underscores Cochlear's design philosophy, which is to take the very best of what we've learned from each generation of electrode and apply it to improve the next," said Chris Smith, President of Cochlear Americas. "The addition of the Nucleus CI422, the world's thinnest, full length electrode, to our comprehensive portfolio is a strong testament to our ongoing collaboration with surgeons and clinicians to help meet the individual needs of patients."

Cochlear continues to empower surgeons with electrodes that accommodate elements of preservation, insertion, stimulation and performance.  Within the portfolio, there are distinct categories of high performance electrodes, each with 22 active contacts, designed for insertions into scala tympani to maximize hearing performance. All Cochlear Nucleus electrodes contain a unique balance of features intended to preserve the delicate structures of the inner ear. The new Slim Straight takes this to the next level with its patented unique design combination of apical flexibility and basal support to allow for a smooth single motion insertion and minimal trauma. In addition, the electrode features a patented Softip and half banded contacts for a smooth silicone lateral wall surface.

"Different patients, surgical preferences and audiological conditions require unique solutions," said Dr. P
