OBJECTIVES Treacher Collins syndrome, also known as mandibulofacial dysostosis, is an autosomal dominant disorder of the cranio-facial morphogenesis affecting 1 of 50,000 live newborns. [...] Key MethodMETHODS The clinical charts were reviewed of all children with a Treacher Collins syndrome diagnosis receiving a Baha in the "Bambino Gesù" Children's Hospital from January 1995 to January 2010. Data were collected concerning patients' anagraphics and medical history, comorbidities, surgical technique…Expand
Ear malformations, hearing loss and hearing rehabilitation in children with Treacher Collins syndrome.
TLDR
This study showed a high incidence of malformations of the outer and middle ear, such as microtia, atresia or stenosis of the external auditory canal, hypoplastic middle ear cavity, dysmorphic or missing ossicular chain. Expand
Hearing rehabilitation in Treacher Collins Syndrome with bone anchored hearing aid
TLDR
The patient had a higher acceptance of the bone-anchored hearing aid compared to the traditional bone vibration arch, and Audiological tests and the speech and auditory skills assessments showed better communication and hearing outcomes. Expand
Hearing Outcomes of Atresia Surgery Versus Osseointegrated Bone Conduction Device in Patients With Congenital Aural Atresia: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The OBCD has better hearing outcomes compared with atresiaplasty in patients with CAA, and hearing outcomes deteriorated with time. Expand
Bilateral implant-retained auricular prosthesis in a patient with Treacher Collins syndrome: a case report
TLDR
Reconstruction of the bilateral congenitally missing ears of a patient resulting from TCS with implant-retained facial prosthesis with deterioration of the prosthesis was observed and replacement prostheses were provided. Expand
Computed tomography–fusion image guidance for children with thin calvaria undergoing bone‐anchored hearing aid placement
TLDR
Preoperative CT-fusion protocol imaging of three patients with thin calvaria in addition to conductive hearing loss was obtained, and intraoperative image guidance was used to select implant sites of appropriate thickness, and avoided dural entry and multiple drill sites during BAHA placement. Expand
Application of the Vibrant Soundbridge middle-ear implant for aural atresia in patients with Treacher Collins syndrome.
TLDR
Vibrant Soundbridge implantation is an effective hearing rehabilitation procedure in patients with Treacher Collins syndrome with bilateral osseous atresia, which is a versatile implant which can achieve coupling even in cases of severe middle-ear malformation. Expand
Speech language pathology findings in a Treacher Collins syndrome patient.
TLDR
It was possible to perceive that the patient presents moderate hearing loss, inadequacy of phonoarticulatory organs, base of the tongue going backwards and epiglottis collapse over the larynx, and an interdisciplinary follow-up is indispensable for this patient suffering from Treacher Collins syndrome. Expand
A functional and anatomical comparison between two passive transcutaneous bone conduction implants in children.
TLDR
Given the lower thickness of the internal magnet, the Sophono™ system might be more suitable for younger children, whereas BAHA offered better functional results, the BAHA having better functional outcomes. Expand
A meta-analysis of the long-term hearing outcomes and complications associated with atresiaplasty.
TLDR
Based on available data, which shows a lack of major complications, such as facial nerve palsy, atresiaplasty is a safe procedure, and the meta-analysis indicated that there was a degradation of hearing outcomes with prolonged follow-up. Expand
Image-guided surgical navigation for bone-conduction hearing device implant placement.
TLDR
Intraoperative IGSN can be a beneficial adjunct to BCHD implant placement surgeries for pediatric patients with abnormal temporal bone anatomy and can help identify the optimal surgical implantation sites, thereby reducing the risk for major morbidities associated with B CHD implantations. Expand

TLDR
The results show that a single-stage technique for BAHA implantation in children is associated with a low rate of early complications, with no reports of fixture loss due to osseointegration failure. Expand

TLDR
The results of the Baha system to treat patients with bilateral aural atresia were extremely satisfactory compared both with those of surgical reconstruction of the auditory canal and those of traditional bone-conduction hearing aids, and great improvement was noted in quality of life, while the rate of complications was very low.

TLDR
Two broad pedicled, local epidermal envelopes/flaps are associated with significantly fewer major complications and have one of the shortest times between surgery and use of the BAHA. Expand

TLDR
Two-stage BAHA implantation with a prolonged interval between stages yields surgical success in younger children comparable to that routinely observed in older children. Expand
Arkansas BAHA Experience: Transcalvarial Fixture Placement Using Osseointegration Surgical Hardware
TLDR
This clinical case report encourages transcalvarial fixture insertion when using 3-mm fixtures during placement of osseointegration surgical hardware for BAHAs, in cases where skull thickness provides an inadequate amount of bone for 4-mm fixture placement requiring placement of a 3- mm fixture instead.
