Abutment-Free Sophono Systems Produce Comparable Study Results to Cochlear’s Baha Products, With Fewer Complications
Date:5/21/2013

y conducted a review of patient benefit at one year of use with both systems. Results showed these findings.
1.    The children experienced the same improvement in hearing levels, from severe conductive loss to nearly normal hearing.
2.    The children experienced the same statistical and clinical improvement in speech understanding.
3.    The children with the Sophono Alpha device experienced fewer complications than the Baha device.

The only notable difference between the groups, explains Kasic, was that the study found 17 percent of those implanted with the Baha device had complications that required them to return to the operating room for additional surgery (to replace the device which had fallen out of their heads).

“Audiologists and otolaryngologists now can be even more confident that young patients can realize hearing improvement without the cosmetic and hygienic problems of an abutment,” says Kasic. Parents’ requests for the Sophono technology are becoming more frequent as well, he adds. “Thanks to Sophono’s use of magnets, Sophono Alpha users can obtain better hearing without the skin-protruding screws of the Baha device.”
