Electrode insertion is the most important step in cochlear implant (CI) surgery. Optimal electrode placement is a prerequisite for maximizing CI success. This article describes CI electrode insertion in the normal and abnormal cochlea, including technical considerations unique to cochlear malformations, dysplasia, ossification, and revision implantation. Currently available electrodes and device specific operative techniques are reviewed.
