Objective

To describe our first 2 years’ experience following implementation of the BAHA program at our hospitals with special emphasis on the benefits and complications of use in each patient.

Material and Method

Retrospective review since the beginning of the programme at 2 Teaching Hospitals in 2004. Twelve patients were implanted with BAHA, and their complications are described, along with hearing loss and their audiological gain with the hearing aid.

Results

Eleven patients with BAHA completed the followup. The average age was 31.6 (18.9) years, and their average conductive hearing loss of was 45.5dB with an audiological gain of 33.6dB. We had one patient with a minor complication (mild infection of the skin flap) and another with a major one (loss of the titanium implant).

Conclusions

The BAHA programme started in 2004 has generated good results in terms of positive audiological data, patient acceptance and low complication rates.

Key words:
BAHA
Titanium implants
Skin flap
Objetivo

Describir la experiencia durante los primeros 2 años de implementación del programa de BAHA en nuestras instituciones, puntualizando los beneficios en cada paciente y las complicaciones con su uso.

Material y método

Estudio retrospectivo desde el inicio del programa en el 2004 en 2 hospitales universitarios sobre 12 pacientes implantados con BAHA; se describe las complicaciones, su déficit auditivo y su ganancia audiológica con el audífono.

Resultados

Once pacientes con BAHA completaron el seguimiento, con un promedio de edad de 31,6±18,9 años, con un déficit auditivo conductivo de 45,5dB en promedio y una ganancia de 33,6dB, una complicación menor (infección menor del colgajo) y una mayor (pérdida del implante de titanio).

Conclusiones

Adelantamos un programa de BAHA con buenos resultados audiológicos, buena aceptación de los pacientes y baja tasa de complicaciones.
