Objective: To evaluate cochlear implant complications and failures to determine possible causes and discuss medical and surgical management. Method: Retrospective study of 1000 cochlear implants for a period of 1994-2016 in a tertiary care center was done. The sample consisted of 930 pre-lingual and 70 post lingual patients, 593 male and 407 female, 920 children below 18 years and 80 adults above 18 years, 916 unilateral and 42 bilateral subjects, 764 normal anatomy and 246 abnormal ears were taken. Results: The overall rate of complications was 6.0% (60 of 1000), with 43 (4.53%) minor complications and 17 (1.78%) major complications; all were treated medically and surgically. Conclusions: Cochlear implantation is a safe technique with a relatively low complication rate; however, certain complications may require specific attention to prevent or correct them. It is important to keep studying the causes of such complications and find possible solutions that can lead to minimizing them.
