Inadvertent insertion of hearing aid impression material into the middle ear: Case report and implications for future community hearing services.

Algudkar A, Maden B, Singh A, Tatla T - Int J Surg Case Rep (2013)

Bottom Line: We discuss how many aspects of the British Society of Audiology guidelines were not followed during this procedure and make recommendations as to how independent community practitioners need to be closely supervised with regular review to minimise the risks of such complications.The reporting of such complications is rare but the incidence is likely to be much higher than the literature would suggest.We recommend and advise how these adverse incidents may be minimised and managed through competency reviews and formal referral links from community centres to hospital otolaryngology/audiology departments.
