Caption: Close-up of an auditory implant worn by a 20 year old male patient with neurofibromatosis following surgery for vestibular Schwannoma (acoustic neuroma). Acoustic neuroma is a benign tumour that develops from the balance and hearing nerves supplying the inner ear and which causes hearing loss. This auditory brainstem implant (ABI) transmits sound to electrodes in the inner ear that enables the patient to hear.
