Brief Summary:
An evaluation of Cochlear's cochlear implant electrode array which passively elutes dexamethasone for a defined period of time to help reduce inflammatory responses.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sensorineural Hearing Loss Bilateral Hearing Loss Device: CI632D Device: CI632 Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The primary objectives of the pivotal evaluation is to show the efficacy of the dexamethasone eluting electrode through reduction in electrode impedances as compared to a standard electrode and the improvement of speech recognition from preoperative baseline. The secondary objectives are to assess the benefit-risk balance of a dexamethasone eluting electrode as similar to a standard electrode by comparison of adverse events and speech outcomes.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of Monopolar (MP1+2) impedance measurement (kOhms) between randomisation groups measured through Custom Sound software during clinical visits. [ Time Frame: Six months ]
  2. Change in speech perception performance (pre-recorded CNC words in quiet in sound booth testing) compared to pre-operative baseline measured during clinical visits. [ Time Frame: Six months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of rate and type of device related adverse events between randomisation groups. [ Time Frame: Six months and twelve months ]
  2. Comparison of speech perception performance (pre-recorded CNC words in quiet and AzBio sentences in quiet in sound booth testing) between randomisation groups measured during clinical visit. [ Time Frame: Six months ]
