Washington: A new study has found that bone-anchored hearing aids appear helpful in improving hearing and quality of life in children with hearing loss in one or both ears."Since its introduction more than 30 years ago, the bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) has become an established treatment option for auditory rehabilitation in patients with chronic conductive or mixed hearing loss," the authors write as background information in the article.
"Overall, BAHA fitting can be considered effective and beneficial in children with bilateral or unilateral hearing loss," the authors concluded. The report has been published in the Archives of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. ANI
