Bone conductive hearing aid implantation.

Basic Information

Recruitment status Recruiting
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedConductive hearing loss or Mixed hearing loss (bilateral or unilateral).
Date of first enrollment11/07/2018
Target sample size5
Countries of recruitmentJapan
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)The bone conductive hearing implantation is performed under general anesthesia. For the bone conductive implantation, a bed for FMT (Floating Mass Transducer) is drilled in the sinodural angle and fixed with two cortical screws. The receiver coil of the BCI is placed on the bone under the periosteum. The implant system can be activated, after the swelling of the skin flap above the implant has reduced.

Outcome(s)

Primary OutcomeThe therapeutic effects are evaluated at 6 month after the BONEBRIDGE operation, using free field audiometry. In this test, marked recovery is defined as any recovery in the mean hearing level at the 500, 1000, 2000 and 4000Hz .
Secondary OutcomeThe therapeutic effects are also evaluated at 12 month after the BONEBRIDGE operation, using Japanese speech discrimination test. In this test, marked recovery is defined as any increase than pre-ope discrimination score.
