The benefits of binaural hearing are well known, and in air conduction hearing amplification patients with bilateral hearing loss have been fitted with bilateral hearing amplification as the standard of care for decades.1 However, the benefits of fitting bilateral conductive or mixed hearing loss with bilateral bone conduction solutions have been debated. The guidance statements and clinical recommendations presented in this paper provide a viewpoint from experts on when bilateral fitting should be performed and considerations for a successful outcome.
For results found during this consensus meeting, please see the entire Clinical guidance on bilateral fitting of bone conduction solutions in children and adults white paper.
