Bone Conduction Implants
Who can benefit from the BONEBRIDGE?
The BONEBRIDGE is designed for:
- Persons 5 years of age or older.
- The physician must fully assess the potential risks and benefits for the patient and his/her realistic expectations with the device prior to the decision to implant the BONEBRIDGE. The physician must exercise medical judgment and consider the patient’s complete medical history.
- Individuals with conductive or mixed hearing loss as indicated by audiometric testing with bone conduction thresholds better than or equal to 45 dB HL at 500 Hz, 1 KHz, 2 KHz and 3 KHz.
- Individuals with single-sided sensorineural deafness, that is severe-to-profound sensorineural deafness in one ear while the other ear has normal hearing (air conduction should be equal to or better than 20 dB HL measured at 500 Hz, 1 KHz, 2 KHz and 3 KHz).
