[An update on bone anchored hearing aids].

[Article in French]

Abstract

Hearing loss represents a hidden handicapwith various repercussions on development and social life. In the majority of cases, classical hearing aids address most hearing losses. However, the enhancement required for severe deafness frequently involves sound distortions which are very uncomfortable for patients. With the advent of bone anchored hearing aids, conductive hearing losses as well as mixed hearing losses are now better rehabilitated. Recently their indications have been expanded to profound to severe sensorineural hearing loss. The emergence of new materials as well as subcutaneous implants has lead to lessen skin complications and has diminished the aesthetic discomfort of this type of hearing devices.
