Élaboration d'un protocole neurocognitif prédictif des résultats de l'implant cochléaire chez l'adulte

Abstract : Despite the benefits brought by cochlear implants (CI) in deafened adults, interindividual variability of the results after implantation is observed. Our purpose was to design a neurocognitive protocol for the prediction of post-CI outcomes. 51 patients and 34 control subjects participated in the study. Their cognitive skills were tested, especially with a double task paradigm including walking and cognitive tasks. The patients' results were then linked to their post-CI evolution in order to determine the predictive value of the cognitive assessment. We observed that only Beck depression inventory was able to predict an improvement in results after cochlear implantation. None of gait parameters are linked to the CI outcomes. Such results can be explained by the fact that our subjects had good post-CI scores and no cognitive disorders. Our interpretation is that our tests may be not sharp enough to be predictive. It would be interesting to pursue this research with other cognitive tasks.
