This trial is evaluating whether Osia 2 System will improve 2 primary outcomes and 4 secondary outcomes in patients with Mixed Hearing Loss. Measurement will happen over the course of Baseline before surgery, 4 weeks post-surgery.
This trial requires 50 total participants across 1 different treatment group
This trial involves a single treatment. Osia 2 System is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Approximately 1.8 million people a year who have conductive hearing loss in the United States. There are about 2.1 million people with hearing loss due to occupational noise." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Conductive hearing loss in children is usually related to certain infectious, genetic and obstetric conditions. The most common cause of congenital hearing loss is fetal infection of ear canal. It is the most common cause of otitis media in child and is therefore an important clinical problem. Otitis media is also the most common cause of hearing loss in adults." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The use of a hearing aid may increase the difficulty of hearing in noise conditions, especially in environments with excessive background noise. The use of a hearing aid may increase the difficulty in understanding spoken words or music, especially in noise (but may decrease the perceived severity of noise-induced hearing loss)." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"For many patients, hearing loss, conductive, and normal hearing are equally important factors at the clinic regarding the subjective assessment of the patient's hearing. Hearing aid amplification should be based on the need rather than the patient's age." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The hearing loss and conductive hearing loss are associated, but hearing loss, conductive can be cured in some cases. In some cases there are associated hearing disturbances. However, when combined, they are less common." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Treatment for unilateral conductive losses generally includes a combination of hearing aids and medication. Hearing aids can help improve speech in noise, and medication, whether antibiotics, anticoagulants and/or antiepileptics may be prescribed depending on the cause and severity of conductive hearing loss. Otolaryngologists should be consulted for diagnosis or treatment of hearing loss in children and adolescents." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is evidence of an increased risk of hearing loss and conductive hearing loss in individuals with conductive hearing loss, family history of diabetes mellitus and in individuals with parental diabetes mellitus." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Hearing loss, conductive, is the most common presentation of hearing loss. If conductive hearing loss is suspected, a brief hearing history is the appropriate way to screen in the primary care setting. The main cause of conductive hearing loss is acoustic trauma, especially from industrial noise exposures." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Osia 2 systems help patients with hearing loss maintain the ability to understand speech and communicate with others despite their hearing loss. However, in some situations they are less effective at achieving these communications goals than patients with normal hearing. Further research on the speech processor and speech communication mode is needed to understand the factors that decrease the effectiveness for certain hearing profiles or acoustic environments." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Patients with cochlear implants and those eligible for clinical trials have varying levels of knowledge about clinical trials and are less likely to participate in such trials compared with those who have normal hearing levels." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There have been several other clinical trials involving osia 2 system; however, there is no existing evidence that this treatment has been effective in this type of hearing loss. There have been no studies to support any conclusions about this system using a large sample of subjects. In fact, there has never been any meta-analysis of the effectiveness of osia 2 system. There is also not, there is a lack of any evidence to support this system to patients, physicians, and policymakers. A lack of evidence isn't necessarily a lack of evidence; it a lack of knowledge." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The average age people get hearing loss, conductive, is 57 years old. Hearing loss, conductive, is mostly [related to] lifestyle choices, age-related diseases, occupational factors, and [or is] noise exposure. However, hearing loss, conductive, is more common in men than in women. There is a link between age-related diseases and hearing loss, conductive. There is a higher prevalence of hearing loss, conductive, in African American children [compared to Caucasian children] and American Indian children." - Anonymous Online Contributor
