Of the two studies that analyzed the techniques used in the CI surgical procedure, one showed that the insertion approach did not influence the postural control after the CI surgery 13, since the patients already had vestibular dysfunction prior to surgery and another study found that the speed of insertion of the electrode interferes in the preservation of the vestibular and auditory function [21].
