A CI can improve a 120 db loss up to 20 db. That is a gain of 100db.
There is already information on clinical trials using cord blood stem cells for young children under 18 months. For adults who want stem cells today, they can go to China or Costa Rica. I discussed this with dad and when I get more information/facts and see more results, we will travel there(to Costa Rica) Phi4sius is still trying to get audiograms of this guy who experienced a 25db improvement. I would love a 25db improvement because this will mean ill hear better than 20db with HAs in most frequencies plus all the other advantages.
20db with CI is unusual, I would not expect 20db as realistic, most people do not get to 20db, try 30-40db. But regardless, a 120db loss is useless for HAs and is probably just cochlear dead region. So yea, CI is of course great for 100+ db losses, no arguments there
. For lesser degees of losses, you can get to 20db or better already with HAs. Yea CI can give you as much as 100db improvement if you happen to have a 120db loss but for an 80db loss, the improvement is only 60db with CI, but with HA you can attain the same improvement! HA's have their limitations for very profoundly deep losses of 100+ db but are great for losses below 100db.
for choosing stem cells over CI are numerous. Many thousands have gotten stem cells for all conditions with 90% success rate. I have emailed/contacted stem cell centers, read articles, did my research and know the facts. Chloe
got such good results she can hear well without HAs! My hearing loss is the same in both ears. Recent audiogram: 125Hz=55db, 250Hz=70db, 500Hz=90db, 750Hz=110db, 1000Hz-8000Hz=NR at 110db. I discuss my deafness and stem cells in my blog
