Official Title

C51 - Clinical Survey of Oticon Medical Healing Cap

Brief Summary

      This study investigates the use of a new healing cap which, through altered design and choice
      of material, has been improved when it comes to minimizing the risk of it falling off as well
      as increasing patient comfort.

Detailed Description

      This study will primarily investigate the use of a new healing cap, Healing cap II. The new
      healing cap has the same function as previous healing caps, but it soft instead of hard. Due
      to this, the healing cap is anticipated to not fall off as easily, but at the same time does
      not risk transferring larger forces than previously to the implant. Secondly, the patients
      will start using the sound processor 1-2 weeks after surgery. The implant stability will be
      monitored before and after loading by the use of resonance frequency analysis, an established
      method to evaluate and monitor osseointegrated implants.
