Poster presentation at this year’s annual Spring Meeting of the Swiss ENT Society
This year’s annual Spring meeting of the Swiss ENT Society took place in Davos from 28/06 to 29/06/2019.
We presented a poster with our most recent research results, which were published in Otology & Neurotology this May. We calculated the cost-effectiveness of cochlear implantation in relation to specific age and gender combinations in a Swiss setting. Cochlear implants are highly effective and improve the quality of life significantly. We were able to show that advanced age alone is virtually never a reason to decide against cochlear implantation. The project was a collaboration of the University Hospital of Zurich / University of Zurich and the Jerusalem College of Technology.

Age Dependent Cost-Effectiveness of Cochlear Implantation in Adults. Is There an Age Related Cut-off?

Zurich und Zürich (Zuerich) Wiedikon
There are 12 districts in Zurich (Zuerich). The district 3, 8003 Wiedikon, is one of the larger and centrally located districts. While the whole population of the city of Zurich is over 400’000, around 40’000 people live in Wiedikon. Further the districts are divided into neighbourhoods. The 3 neighbourhoods of Zurich Wiedikon are Alt-Wiedikon, Friesenberg and Sihlfeld. As the borders of these areas are mostly historically defined, they are not that apparent nowadays anymore. By the way.. a spectacular part of Zurich’s history took place in the area of todays Wiedikon.. In contrast, nowadays urban landmarks represent Zurich Wiedikon. For example the residential area Lochergut and Kalkbreite. Also the Wiedikon train station and Schmiede Wiedikon, the Triemli city hospital, the local museum Ortsmuseum Wiedikon, the Agudas-Achim-Synagogue and Stauffacher.
The city center of Zurich, the district 1 (8001) with the Zurich main station HB, the Bahnhofstrasse and the Paradeplatz are close. Also the neighbourhoods Enge in the district 2 (8002) and Langstrasse, stretching over district 4 (8004) and district 5 (8005) are nearby.
