Title:
Assessment of the Subjective Benefit of Electric Acoustic Stimulation with the Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit 
Abstract:
Conclusion: This study demonstrates that electric-acoustic stimulation (EAS) significantly decreases the subjective impairment in speech perception. Objectives: To assess the subjective benefit of EAS over the first 12 months after EAS fitting using the Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit (APHAB). Method: Twenty-three EAS users, implanted with either the PULSARCI100 FLEXEAS provided with the DUET EAS processor or the COMBI40+ Medium provided with the TEMPO+ speech processor, were included...    »
