Middle ear implants are surgically implanted devices. The FDA has approved specific middle ear implants and the FDA is still reviewing others. The middle ear implant is a useful hearing instrument and is quite different from traditional hearing aids. Generally speaking, hearing aids reproduce sounds and make them louder than the original sound. When a hearing aid is placed in the ear canal, the loud sound is perceived by the hearing impaired ear. Middle ear implants work by vibrating the middle ear bones, rather than by producing audible sound ...

Information for individuals with hearing loss considering a cochlear implant, middle ear implant or combined electric acoustic stimulation from the innovative cochlear implant company
A totally implantable hearing system having a sound processing device, a coil assembly, and a magnet assembly. The magnet assembly is implanted in the middle ear of a user and is in contact with at least a portion of an ossicle of the middle ear. The sound processing device receives and converts sound into an electrical signal. The coil assembly receives and converts the electrical signal from the sound processing device into an electromagnetic signal, and transmits the electromagnetic signal into the middle ear of the user such that the electromagnet signals interact with the magnet assembly, thereby causing the magnet assembly and the ossicle to vibrate thereby creating the perception of sound in the user. The coil assembly is preferably implanted within the bony canal wall adjacent the outer ear canal of the user such that at least a portion of the coil assembly extends into the middle ear space of the user. The system preferably has a spacer connected to the magnet assembly and/or the coil assembly
An implantable hearing assistance system has a subcranially implantable electronics unit that is remotely situated from the ear, such as implanted in the pectoral region, rather than in the mastoid portion of the temporal bone. The increased volume available in the remote electronics unit allows it to carry a power source of increased energy capacity. This improves longevity, allows higher power consumption signal processing capability, and simplifies battery replacement. The hearing assistance system is coupled to a middle ear input transducer and a middle or inner ear output stimulator. The hearing assistance system is capable of use in a partial middle ear implantable (P-MEI), total middle ear implantable (T-MEI), or cochlear implant hearing assistance system.

In this report, results of the applications of titanium-gold total ossicular replacement prosthesis are presented and they are compared with other types of prosthesis used in clinical practice. Material & Method This study was performed on 24 patients, 14 male and 10 female, aged between 13 to 67. In all patients, primary pathology was chronic cholesteatomatous otitis media, and none of them were revision cases. In all cases, canal wall down technique tympanoplasty type 3 was performed with titanium-gold prosthesis. A thin block of conchal cartilage was put over the plate of the prosthesis and ear drum was reconstructed with autograft temporalis muscle fascia in all cases. The control group consisted of 30 patients operated for same middle ear pathology. In these cases, surgeries were similar except the prostheses that have been used. In this group, in seven of patients pure hydroxyapatite TORP`s were used; in the rest, the choice was a hydroxyapatite polyethilen hybrid prosthesis. An average ...

Provided is an implanted hearing instrument having reduced sensitivity to vibration. In this regard, the instrument differentiates between the desirable and undesirable signals within an implanted microphone response. In one arrangement, an observer identifies a current operating state of the implanted hearing instrument and one or more cancellation filters are adjusted based on the current operating state. The cancellation filter(s) are used to reduce undesired signals form the implanted microphone response. In a first arrangement, the output of the implanted hearing instrument may be filtered and removed from the implanted microphone response to reduce or substantially eliminate feedback in the microphone signal provided to an implanted signal processor.

Dr. Djalilians research is focused on 4 primary areas. The first is the development of devices for the treatment of diseases of the ear. The primary device is a novel hearing device that directly vibrates the tympanic membrane. This device (Direct Hearing Device) would theoretically have a sound quality that would be similar to an implantable hearing aid without the need for surgery. The second device is a balance augmentation device which combines sensors and gaming technology to assess and rehabilitate imbalance. The third and fourth devices are focused on the development of devices for diagnosis and treatment of otitis media. Other devices of interest include a novel combined vestibular and cochlear implant and a free standing vestibular implant ...

J. Douglas Green Jr., MD, FACS, presented a program to the members of Northside Rotary on his mission work with Hearing Help For Africa, a nonprofit based in Jacksonville, FL. Dr. Green has visited the 150-bed Evangel Hospital in Jos, Nigeria, multiple times throughout the past decade to provide medical and surgical care of patients with ear, nose and throat problems. Through this initial work, it was determined that special ear care was needed, as well as an upgrade to the existing medical facilities and more specialized equipment for the treatment of hearing loss. In fact, companies donate cochlear implants to be surgically inserted in patients at the Nigerian hospital. Subsequently, these implants can be programmed, along with hearing aids and implantable hearing devices, from Dr. Greens Jacksonville office more than 5,900 miles away from Nigeria!. Hearing loss is extremely common in Africa and the developing world, with roughly double the incidence present in the United States. Patients ...
