Someone heard me! 🙂
And I got hold of what I needed! A 5 pages long list of research that supports the notion that everybody who needs it should have bilateral CI!
I got in contact with Amy Brown from the Let Them Hear Foundation Advocacy program. She provided me with a huge list called “Research Supporting Bilateral Cochlear Implantation“. It is updated and very much valid for the ongoing battle we have these days in Norway for allowing adults get their CI number two on an as needed basis.
Amy wrote me the following, which I happily honor, given the fact that she gave me the precious list in the first place 🙂
Thanks to Amy and Sheri Byrne from the Let Them Hear Foundation.
Thank you for your question. This is a proprietary LTHF Advocacy Program work document. We use it specifically to support our appeals. I am happy to share it with individuals such as yourself as needed, but it is not intended for public consumption. We continually update and revise this list to include the latest most compelling peer reviewed medical literature. It is meant always to be a work in transition. If you know of anyone who needs access to this information, you are welcome to share my contact information with them. I will follow-up immediately.

If anyone need this information, I’d be happy to provide her e-mail address. All you have to do is ask. I won’t publish it here because that could lead to her getting more e-mail spam. Better to keep it personal.
