Published: 11 July 2011
Hearing loss

A systematic review and economic evaluation of the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of BAHAs for people who are bilaterally deaf, is now available.

The report, funded by the NIHR Health Technology Assessment programme, is a systematic review and economic evaluation of BAHAs for people who have hearing loss in both ears. The study found improved hearing with BAHAs compared with bone conduction hearing aids or no aiding, however, exploratory analysis suggested that their cost-effectiveness was less clear. Further research on the benefits of BAHAs is required to improve the poor-quality evidence available and to clarify uncertainties. The report is published in the Health Technology Assessment series.
