          Abstract

          Aural atresia is a congenital disease constituted by partial or complete lack of development of the external auditory canal, which is generally associated with malformations of the auricle and middle ear. Reconstruction of the auditory canal and correction of any deformities of the middle ear have yielded unpredictable results and variable functional outcomes, and there is a high rate of complications. Therefore, the use of bone-conduction hearing aids, such as the Baha, may represent a valid alternative for subjects who have conductive hearing loss with cochlear reserve that, as a rule, is fully conserved. The aim of this work is to reexamine our experience with the management of conductive and mixed hearing loss using the Baha system in children with bilateral aural atresia.
