New developments in bone-conduction hearing implants: a review

The active transcutaneous direct-drive BCDs appear to be the most promising systems, but to establish more detailed inclusion criteria, and potential benefits and drawbacks, more extensive clinical studies are needed.

The “Sheffield” incision offers simplicity, speed, and aesthetically pleasing results with minimal postoperative management and compares well with other similar case series and with the authors' own results from using the alternative inferior flap technique.



Five-year experience with skin-penetrating bone-anchored implants in the temporal bone.

A method for stable integration of titanium-implants in bone tissue has been developed at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and the possibilities of this new method in the treatment of patients with e.g. certain hearing disorders or facial defects after tumour surgery are shown.

Current status of theories of hearing.

Each of the vibration patterns of the basilar membrane postulated by the four major theories of hearing can be obtained by varying two elastic properties of the membrane-namely, the coupling between adjacent parts and the absolute value of the elasticity.

Does the Bone-Anchored Hearing Aid Have a Complementary Effect on Audiological and Subjective Outcomes in Patients with Unilateral Conductive Hearing Loss?

The BAHA proved to be a beneficial means to optimize binaural hearing in patients with severe (40–60 dB) unilateral conductive hearing loss according to audiometric data and patient outcome measures.

Intra-osseous anchorage of dental prostheses. I. Experimental studies.

An investigation of factors controlling healing and long term stability of intra-osseous titanium implants to restore masticatory function in dogs revealed that an integrity of the good anchorage of

A one-stage surgical procedure for placement of percutaneous implants for the bone-anchored hearing aid

The preliminary clinical results of 33 one-stage implants in 33 patients are presented, and it is found that after a follow-up which varied from nine to 25 months, 31 out of the 33 fixtures were anchored firmly in the skull.

Clinical Outcome of the Simplified Surgical Technique for BAHA Implantation

The modified Nijmegen surgical technique is a simple straightforward surgical procedure without the use of a pedicled skin flap and proved to be a good alternative to other techniques in terms of the low rates of implant failure and adverse tissue reactions.

Removal of titanium implants from the temporal bone: histologic findings.

Direct bone-to-metal contact and the bone volume between the threads increased as the implantation time increased and no explanation was found for the longstanding pain in the implant area and the relief of pain after removal of the percutaneous implant.

Soft tissue reactions around percutaneous implants: a clinical study of soft tissue conditions around skin-penetrating titanium implants for bone-anchored hearing aids.

This report is focused on the clinical status of the soft tissue adjacent to the 67 skin-penetrating devices in 60 patients and the procedure to furnish edentulous patients with fixed bridges using titanium implants.
