Audiometric comparison between Bone Anchored Hearing Aid and Bone Conduction Implant
Poster (konferens), 2016

Patients suffering from conductive or mixed hearing losses can often be successfully rehabilitated using bone conduction devices (BCDs). Percutaneous BCDs are widely used today, but the trend is to develop transcutaneous solutions able to providing equally good rehabilitation and less complications. Here, the transcutaneous Bone Conduction Implant was compared with percutaneous BCDs under the hypothesis that they are equally effective. Tone and speech audiometry and questionnaires were utilized to assess the overall performance. The outcome confirmed the initial hypothesis.
