Comparison between incus short process and long process coupling of the vibrant soundbridge in human temporal bones

Lukas Graf, Jonas Lochner, Hamidreza Mojallal, Andreas Arnold, Flurin Honegger & Christof Stieger
The Vibrant Soundbridge (VSB) is one of the most widely used implantable hearing devices. It consists of a vibrating floating mass transducer (FMT) that is connected to a middle ear structure. The standard coupling devices for sensorineural hearing loss are short process (SP) or long process (LP) couplers. This study directly compared the electro-mechanical performance of the SP- and LP-coupled FMT of the VSB in the same temporal bone specimen (n = 10). We measured...
