Abstract

We present a case of a 50-year patient with a severe form of otosclerosis (double ring) that was successfully implanted. We used a bone-anchored hearing implant for restoring the hearing in the right side and a cochlear implant in the left side; both surgeries did not show any complications. For reducing the risk of a secondary bone ossification related to the trauma of cochleostomy for electrode's insertion, we used a round window approach. The patient recovered a normal auditory threshold and normal speech perception capacity both in silence and noise conditions 1 year after surgery.
