  • Once the hearing problems have been addressed however, language therapy is extremely important in treating the effects of the hearing problems such as deficient phonological awareness and its consequences on comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, language[soundskills.co.nz]
  • With the help of audio therapy and psychological support, patients with hearing loss and deafness can develop new communication methods and mechanisms for overcoming hearing problems in order to better cope with their hearing impairments and auditory[bookinghealth.com]
  • In cases where the site of the hearing problem actually involves the auditory nerve, outcomes with the implant may be more limited.[babyhearing.org]
Sudden Hearing Loss

  • Sudden hearing loss Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is a rapid loss of hearing (at least 30 decibels at three or more contiguous frequencies) that can happen all at once or over a period of up to three days 12 .[cochlear.com]
  • The extent to which individuals with sudden hearing loss actually have AN, is uncertain. Of course, this could be diagnosed by OAE testing. It is our general experience that patients with SHL have absent OAE's as well.[dizziness-and-balance.com]
  • Symptoms often progress over weeks to months although sudden hearing loss has been reported.67 Occasionally, the patient may have a systemic immune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis.64,65,66 Hughes65 examined 52 patients suspected of having autoimmune[michiganear.com]

  • Treatment and prognosis Hearing can be improved by implantation of a multichannel cochlear implant 6 .[radiopaedia.org]
  • When preoperative magnetic resonance imaging reveals central nervous system pathology, this portends a poor prognosis for the development of open-set speech perception, particularly when CND is evident.[journals.lww.com]
  • We can only make these recordings after implantation, but the value may be that it can give us a prognosis for what to expect for these children, and, furthermore, if it is necessary to emphasize visual communication early on either through speech or[audiologyonline.com]


  • Etiology B. Mutation Cochlear implantation is widely accepted for the treatment of severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss since its approval in 1990 by the Food and Drug Administration.[atlasofscience.org]
  • Interestingly, there was no significant association between outcome and the etiology of deafness per se.[academic.oup.com]
  • The etiology of BPV has been a source of controversy.[michiganear.com]
  • Clinicians must bear in mind the fact that ANSD encompasses a heterogeneous population with varying etiologies and sites of lesion despite the fact that patients present with a similar constellation of testing findings.[asha.org]
  • Although the exact mechanisms underlying these associations are not entirely known, alterations in the normal interactions between the developing inner ears, cochlear nerves, and rhombencephalon during early fetal life likely play major roles in the etiology[ajnr.org]

  • Arguably, any increased access to auditory information is of benefit, and research has suggested that this can sometimes be a reasonably expected outcome even in cases where the pathophysiology is linked to the auditory nerve.[asha.org]
