The disadvantages of conventional hearing aids have prompted research by several investigators that ultimately led to the development of implantable hearing devices. This paper was aimed to review the history, indications, and surgical aspects of the implantable middle ear hearing devices. Available implantable hearing aids are partially implantable, or totally implantable, and have piezoelastic system or electromagnetic system. Their own peculiarities on candidacy and surgical procedure of the devices, including the Vibrant Soundbridge system, the Maxum system, the fourth-generation of Carina prosthesis, and the Esteem device, were reviewed. Implantable hearing aids, currently in the early stages of development, will be the major drivers of advancement in otologic practice in the 21st century, improving the quality of life of an increasingly aged population, who requires hearing rehabilitation.
Key Words: Middle ear implantable device, Electromagnetic, Piezoelastic, Partially implantable, Totally implantable.
