OBJECTIVES Objectives were, first, to estimate the additional number of quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) gained by deaf children from bilateral compared with unilateral implantation (DeltaQ); second, to estimate the additional cost to the healthcare system in the United Kingdom for providing bilateral compared with unilateral implantation (DeltaC); and, third, to compare the values of incremental net benefit (INB), rDeltaQ - DeltaC, with criteria used by policy makers in deciding whether to… CONTINUE READING
