Abstract
Objective To discuss the clinical approach in managing patients with large vestibular aqueduct syndrome. Methods Over the period from November 1997 to March 2005, 106 children have been fitted with cochlear implants in Antwerp University Hospital (UZA). The Hospital University of Maastricht (azM) had implanted 36 children since 1999 to March 2005. The present study focuses on nine children and one adult patient with large vestibular aqueduct syndrome (LVAS). The medical, report and radiology report were retrospectively analysed. Results Eight out of nine children with LVAS had been implanted and one child was on the waiting list. One adult patient was implanted with Nucleus 24 M at the age of 22 years old. Nine out of 10 patients had bilateral large vestibular aqueduct. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications encountered. Conclusion Cochlear implantation is a safe operation for patients with LVAS.
