A bone conduction-based hearing aid is known as a bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA). It is primarily appropriate for those who cannot wear “in the ear” or “behind the ear” hearing aids due to conductive hearing loss, unilateral hearing loss, single-sided deafness, or persons with mixed hearing deficits.
They cost more than standard hearing aids and need invasive surgery, which increases the chance of complications.Patients with auditory atresia or chronic ear drainage who cannot wear air-conduction hearing aids benefit from the performance and advantages of bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA).
The BAHA is growing in popularity since it outperforms most traditional hearing aids in terms of both aesthetics and acoustics. Additionally, BAHA enhances quality of life and has dramatically decreased ear discharge.
The history, indications, benefits, result prediction, complications, and comparison of the BAHA to conventional hearing aids are all covered in this thorough overview of the literature on BAHA.
When compared to those who wear hearing aids, those with untreated hearing loss are more likely to report experiencing despair, anxiety, and paranoia. They are also less likely to engage in planned social activities.
The global bone anchored hearing aids market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The first bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) in India was recently introduced in Bangalore. The Basavanagudi ENT Care Center in the city introduced the new hearing aid, which is an alternate technique of treatment for hearing impairment and is worn behind the ear.
The BAHA is produced by Entific Medical Systems in Sweden and has a three-year warranty. There was no chance that surgical error would cause the patient to become deaf. Additionally, it enables children who were born deaf to overcome their disability and attend regular schools.
An ENT physician from the United Kingdom who has anchored the device on patients back in the UK, explained that BAHA is anchored into the bone under local anaesthetic.
