We chose stapes surgery because in patients suffering from otosclerosis there are no pathological changes in middle ear anatomy, that might be present in cholesteatomas or chronic middle ear infections.
The aim of this study was to compare the success results and complications of both these procedures in the management of otosclerosis.
DISCUSSION Otosclerosis is the most common cause of conductive hearing loss in young adults.
Pathology states were divided into acoustic neuroma, chronic otitis media, otosclerosis, and psychosocial problems, either detected or undetected.
Otosclerosis is a spongifying disease of the labyrinthine capsule of unknown aetiology that occurs only in humans.
Chronic ear infections, otosclerosis (hardening of the bones), genetics, aging and exposure to toxic drugs also play a role in hearing loss.
Every time Glyn performs a hearing test he is also screening the ear for signs of any other problems that may need referring to a GP such as Otosclerosis - an abnormal growth of bone of the middle ear.
These range from wax blocking the ear canal, causing a temporary problem, to age-related changes to the sensory cells of the cochlea (presbyacusis), or otosclerosis - a condition in which the ossicles of the middle ear harden and become less mobile, through to head injury or brain damage.
Changes in otosclerosis, Meniere's disease, and acoustic neuroma.
Otosclerosis usually occurs when the last bone in the middle ear, the stapes, can't vibrate because the abnormal bone growth makes it stick fast in the so-called window to the inner ear.
