Patients with conductive and mixed hearing loss are the primary candidates for bone-anchored hearing aids; this includes patients with chronic inflammation or infection of the ear canal which prevents the use of standard hearing aids, patients with conditions which have led to malformation of the ear canal, patients with single-sided deafness, patients with a bilateral conductive loss due to ossicular disease and patients who have malformed or absent outer ear and ear canals. A few BAHA manufacturers now use a snap-lock mechanism where the BAHA unit can be clipped onto the implanted abutment; the mechanism serves as a safety feature which helps prevent damage to the surrounding tissue or the bone. The titanium implant component of the device is screwed into the bone through the skin. This creates an open wound, which is a constant risk for infection. Mitigating this risk requires daily care and the use of a topical antibiotic. A prospective patient can test the BAHA device prior to undergoing surgery by wearing a steel band over their ear, which presses against the side of the patients skull.
