Long-Term Results of the Cochlear Implant in Patients with Otosclerosis

Dec 2017 MedCrave

Otosclerosis is a bone dysplasia of the optic capsule that promotes progressive metabolic derangement, and can lead to profound hearing loss. This study aimed to compare the postoperative results in patients undergoing cochlear implant with otosclerosis compared with patients with other causes of deafness in a matched pair control group within five years with cochlear implant program. Comfort and Threshold, speech test sentences, monosyllabic and disyllabic, audiometry were measured vs gender, age at implantation, duration of deafness. The conclusion was that otosclerosis patients’ implanted showed good surgical results, despite the greater number of complications presented the stimulation of the facial nerve. These results are comparable to the study of patients in the control group with statistical difference between them, despite the progressive feature of otosclerosis disease.
