To the aid of those suffering from mixed or conductive hearing loss as well as single sided deafness – Single Sided Deafness (SSD) comes the new Baha system. This brand new hearing prosthetic aid differs from the others currently on the market because, instead of using sound amplification through normal air conduction, it directly stimulates the cochlea using bone conduction , thus avoiding the problems deriving from a damaged or occluded external and middle ear . The device consists of two parts: a sound processor that picks up vibrations and a titanium implant inserted into the skull behind the ear, which transfers these vibrations directly to the functioning cochlea. The device has obtained CE certification and FDA approval. [photo cochlearamericas ]

Some researchers will have the opportunity to publish a study on dental coatings in the next issue of the International Journal of Nanomanufacturing. Titanium is the most used material in many dental implants, however its surface is typically inert: this makes it biocompatible and favored to avoid adverse reactions of the immune system, but it… Continua a leggere Dental implants covered with synthetic bone


Cemented total hip prosthesis

Over the years, but not only, the joints lose elasticity and arthrosis phenomena can occur which cause pain, up to a poor mobility of the patient. In these cases, a hip prosthesis similar to the one visible in the radiograph to the side is used. The procedure itself is quite simple and takes about an… Continua a leggere Cemented total hip prosthesis
