US Market Report for Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids 2017 - MedCore

A few BAHA manufacturers now use a snap-lock mechanism where the BAHA unit can be clipped onto the implanted abutment; the mechanism serves as a safety feature which helps prevent damage to the surrounding tissue or the bone. Bone-anchored hearing aids were approved for treating unilateral sensorineural hearing loss by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 2002. The titanium implant component of the device is screwed into the bone through the skin. This creates an open wound, which is a constant risk for infection. Mitigating this risk requires daily care and the use of a topical antibiotic. A prospective patient can test the BAHA device prior to undergoing surgery by wearing a steel band over their ear, which presses against the side of the patient’s skull. Growth in unit sales has been adjusted down significantly compared to past estimates as the market had not expanded at a rate competitors had previously hoped for. Nevertheless, the market has seen considerable sales growth in recent years, a trend that is expected to continue into the forecast period.

A bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) is a surgically implanted device designed to treat hearing loss by transmitting the sounds it receives through direct bone conduction to the nerve fibers of the inner ear. The device consists of an externally worn receiver and sound processor, which resembles a standard behind-the-ear hearing aid, and an external abutment that vibrates a titanium implant. The hearing aid is operational once the titanium fixture bonds with the surrounding tissue (osseointegration). This process usually takes two to six months from when the device has been implanted. Patients with conductive and mixed hearing loss are the primary candidates for bone-anchored hearing aids; this includes patients with chronic inflammation or infection of the ear canal which prevents the use of standard hearing aids, patients with conditions which have led to malformation of the ear canal, patients with single-sided deafness, patients with a bilateral conductive loss due to ossicular disease and patients who have malformed or absent outer ear and ear canals.
