Croatia 12th in world in cochlear implant surgeries

 As many as 700 cochlear implants (CI) have been implanted in Croatia in the past 20 years, which puts Croatia in the 12th place in the world.

Last week, a congress was held in Split to mark the 14th anniversary of the first surgery in Croatia, when this device was implanted in a child patient.

A cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device that provides a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of hearing in both ears.

Over the past 20 years, 456 cochlear implantation procedures have been conducted at the Zagreb hospital "Sisters of Mercy"  and the rest in other hospitals in the country, Robert Trotic said at the congress.
