    Removal of Titanium Implants from the Temporal Bone: Histologic Findings. 



    Am J Otol 19:46-51, 1998.


      

    Titanium bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA) were implanted into the temporal bone of 189 patients. Only 3 of them had intolerance requiring removal of the implant.

        


    Though bony integration increased with duration of implantation, there was no explanation for the acellular structure at the bottom of the implant, the long-standing pain, or the resolution of pain after implant removal.

        


    The studies provide an opportunity to study the details of osseo integration.
