Abstract


Implantable hearing aids are currently used in management of hearing loss. For patients with conductive component of hearing loss, bone conduction hearing aids are used.
In these implantable hearing devices sound pressure is transmitted directly to the inner ear through an implant placed behind the ear bypassing the affected external and middle ear.
Biomaterials used for these implantable hearing aids proved their safety and long-term stability due to good osseointegration and stabilising tissue-implant interaction.
