TLDR
Under specific clinical circumstances, temporary removal of the transcutaneous bone conduction hearing implant described, is technically accomplishable.
Medical, Technical and Audiological Outcomes of Hearing Rehabilitation with the Bonebridge Transcutaneous Bone-Conduction Implant: A Single-Center Experience
TLDR
This single-center follow-up reveals the medical and technical reliability of a transcutaneous bone-conduction implant for hearing rehabilitation because complication and revision rates were low and the majority of patients still used the device at the end of the observation period.
Bone-Anchored and Closed Skin Bonebridge Implant in Adults: Hearing Performances and Quality of Life
TLDR
BoneBridge® implant provides reproducible results for the rehabilitation of mixed hearing losses and unilateral hearing loss and APHAB scores improved in all categories except aversiveness.
Bonebridge transcutaneous bone conduction implant in children with congenital aural atresia: surgical and audiological outcomes.
TLDR
Bonebridge transcutaneous bone conduction implant surgery is safe and effective among children with congenital aural atresia with conductive hearing loss.
Paediatric Bonebridge: bilateral simultaneous asymmetrical implantation
TLDR
The simultaneous implantation of bilateral Bonebridge devices was well tolerated in this paediatric patient, with significant improvement in her hearing, and the middle cranial fossa is a viable option for housing the transducer.
Clinical and functional results after implantation of the bonebridge, a semi-implantable, active transcutaneous bone conduction device, in children and adults
TLDR
To overcome anatomical challenges, the Bonebridge is recommended for preoperative 3D planning in small and hypoplastic mastoids, children, ear malformation, and simultaneous implantation of ear prosthesis anchors and after multiple ear surgery.

TLDR
In 2011 a bone conduction implant that utilizes electromagnetic signals transmitted through the skin instead of vibrations was introduced onto the market and it is often not possible to place the relatively large BC-FMT exclusively in the bone of the mastoid.
Safety and effectiveness of the Bonebridge transcutaneous active direct-drive bone-conduction hearing implant at 1-year device use
TLDR
The transcutaneous BCI is very well tolerated at 1-year follow up, improves audiometric thresholds and intelligibility for speech in quiet and noise, and gives satisfaction to both patients with mixed and conductive hearing loss and patients with SSD.

TLDR
The BCI can be implanted by a safe and easy surgical procedure and is a realistic alternative to the BAHA, and 3D preoperative planning can be helpful to optimize the BCI position.
Outcome of bone-anchored hearing aids for single-sided deafness: A prospective study
TLDR
There was a statistically significant improvement in the average SSQ score in all three sections of the questionnaire with the use of the BAHA, and patients experienced most marked benefits in speech hearing in challenging listening situations.

TLDR
Overall, the quality of large scale and/or prospective studies reporting the incidence of complications after osseointegrated hearing aid surgery is poor and lacks uniformity, but based on available data, which shows a lack of major complications, osseointedegrated implantation is a safe procedure in both adult and pediatric populations.

TLDR
The OBCD is an effective way of rehabilitation for SSD and the BAHA improves the speech perception in noise but provided no significant improvement in sound localization as revealed in the postoperative test.

TLDR
Preliminary data in subjects with normal monaural hearing indicate that vibromechanical stimulation with the bone anchored hearing aid overcomes some of the negative head shadow effects in unilateral deafness.
Grading system for the selection of patients with congenital aural atresia for active middle ear implants
TLDR
A new grading system that could describe the extent of the malformation and predict the viability and challenges of implanting an aMEI is created and allows more precise risk stratification and decision making regarding the implantation.
