Abstract A sample of 64 postlinguistically profoundly to totally deaf adult cochlear implant patients were tested without lipreading by means of the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID) sentence test 3 months postoperatively. Preoperative promontory stimulation results (thresholds, gap detection, and frequency discrimination), age, duration of profound deafness, cause of deafness, lipreading ability, postoperative intracochlear thresholds and dynamic ranges for electrical stimulation, depth of insertion of the electrode array into the scala tympani, and number of electrodes in use were considered as possible factors that might be related to the postoperative sentence scores. A multiple regression analysis with stepwise inclusion of independent variables indicated that good gap detection and frequency discrimination during preoperative promontory testing, larger numbers of electrodes in use, and greater dynamic ranges for intracochlear electrical stimulation were associated with better CID scores. The CID scores tended to decrease with longer periods of profound deafness.
