Cochlear implants case resurfaces in Spain

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Spain's National Confederation for the Deaf (CNSE) has begun a series of meetings with the Health Ministry in order for it to be "urgently updated" on the extent of the risks posed by cochlear implants. Its action in seeking the talks followed it "hearing by chance" about Ministry warnings issued six months ago regarding this type of device. The CNSE has expressed its indignation at the lack of information provided to the wider public about the risks associated with the Clarion and other implants, to which four deaths and six cases of meningitis had been linked in Spain.
