ABSTRACT
Bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) is a hearing aid that takes advantage of bone conduction. One of the indication of Baha prosthetics is mixed hearing loss, in case of which conventional hearing aid or the operation of the ear will not give wishful result. For patients with mixed hearing loss, the Baha must not only bypass the conductive element to the hearing loss it must also compensate for the sensorineural part of the hearing loss.
