However, Saeed and Ghadami in a series of 183 patients (1987-92) found 122 patients having large perforation with average conductive hearing loss of 25.3 dB, 21 medium sized perforation with hearing loss of 19.2 dB and 40 small perforations with 11.35 dB hearing loss.
"Another condition that may cause conductive hearing loss is called otosclerosis, which is a hardening of the stapes bone (the smallest bone in the human body).
The ears were infection free in 44 cases (91.7%) and single perforation was commonest observation (45, 93.8%), that is in accordance with result of Wani who found single perforation in tympanic membrane in 92.3% patients while multiple perforations were found in 7.7% patients.4 Similarly in Park study the commonest finding was single perforation in TM.7 Majority of patients consulted ENT OPD after receiving trauma to ear except in cases where trauma was not resulting into any significant symptom or patient belonged to a far flung area On performing pure tone audiometry conductive hearing loss was the most common finding (38, 79.2%), while mild degree hearing loss was commonest (24, 50%) finding.
