ACTIVE MIDDLE EAR VIBRANT SOUNDBRIDGE SOUND IMPLANT. Acta Clin Croat. 2019 Jun;58(2):348-353 Authors: Pegan A, Ries M, Ajduk J, Bedeković V, Ivkić M, Trotić R Abstract The Vibrant Soundbridge represents a new approach to hearing improvement in the form of active implantable middle ear hearing device. Unlike conventional acoustic hearing aids, which increase the volume of sound that goes to the eardrum, the Vibrant Soundbridge bypasses the ear canal and eardrum by directly vibrating the small bones in the middle ear. Because of its design, no portion of the device is placed in the ear canal itself. T...
