View Course Details Please note: exam questions are subject to change.

1.  Holmes et al. (2021) conducted a retrospective cohort study of adult and pediatric patients who underwent bone conduction surgery to compare the outcomes between the MIPS and LT techniques. Which of the following did they NOT find?
  1. Significantly lower rate of localized skin reactions in the MIPS group.
  2. Pediatric patients overall had a higher rate of localized skin reactions than the adult patients.
  3. Significantly lower rate of revision surgeries for the MIPS group
  4. Overall higher rates of device (i.e., sound processor) usage in the MIPS group.
2.  According to the Holger’s scale, what is the minimum score considered an abnormal localized tissue reaction?
  1. Zero - 0
  2. One - 1
  3. Two - 2

  1. Pediatrics
  2. Veterans
  3. Adults over the age of 65
  4. Adults with congenital SSD hearing loss
5.  Recent comparisons of the MIPS technique have found, on average, a surgical time of approximately how many minutes?
