Cochlear Implantation after Kidney Transplantation

B Hasehmi, H Bahrani Fard, Z Zandifar


Patients with chronic renal failure may develop sensorineural hearing loss. Cochlear implantation has rarely done after organ transplantation. Herein, we report on a 33-year-old kidney transplantation recipient who underwent cochlear implantation for her progressive sensorineural hearing loss in Khalili Hospital Cochlear Implant Center, affiliated to Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. The implantation was done successfully with no complications. Cochlear implantation may be an appropriate therapeutic option for sensorineural hearing loss caused by chronic renal failure.
