Cochlear implantation has established itself as a cost-effective intervention for many patients with hearing loss. Electrode design has evolved in an attempt to preserve the fine structures of the cochlea with many contributions in the literature on this topic. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the alterations that occur and those factors influencing the vestibular function. More research is needed to address these issues.

The aim of this Research Topic is to investigate how the vestibular function is altered in cochlear implantation. The aim is to invite any scientific contribution where the vestibular function is investigated in cochlear implantation.

Therefore, for this Research Topic, we welcome contributions on, but not limited to:

• How is the vestibular function altered in cochlear implantation?
• Are there any factors influencing the vestibular function alteration?
• Measuring the vestibular function in cochlear implantation
• Preserving vestibular function in cochlear implantation
• Counselling of patients regarding vestibular function alteration
• Surgical techniques to control postoperative vertigo
• Treating of deafness and Meniere's disease by means of cochlear implantation
• Stimulation of vestibular receptors by the cochlear implant electrode
• What is the role of vestibular co-stimulation?
• How is vestibular function altered in patients with inner-ear malformations?
• Are there any relationship with electrode type (pre curved vs straight) position (perimodiolar, mid scala or lateral) electrode length, design, translocation to scala vestibuli or whether a round window or cochleostomy approach is performed?
• Are there any predisposing factors that can lead to postoperative vertigo?
• What is the effect on Meniere's disease in cochlear implantees?
