Objective: Cochlear nerve size is a prognostic factor for successful cochlear implantation. Reports about the cochlear nerve size in normal-hearing patients and differences among societies in the cochlear nerve size are not satisfactory. The purpose of this study was to determine the average cochlear nerve size in normal-hearing adults and to investigate whether there is a difference among societies on the basis of literature data.
