In this course, we will outline the two main bone conduction stimulation systems: direct transmission of the sound signal in the percutaneous system, and the skin drive system. Clinical evidence of patients’ listening effort with the two systems will be presented, and the result put in perspective of treating children with skin drive solutions. Surgical techniques to this approach will also be discussed, specifically the Minimally Invasive Ponto Surgery (MIPS).
This course is open captioned.
