Audiological and clinical outcomes of a transcutaneous bone conduction hearing implant: Six ‐month results from a multicentre study

ConclusionsThe Baha Attract System provided a significant improvement in hearing performance and subjective benefit compared to the pre ‐operative unaided condition (with the non‐test ear blocked).
