Conductive Hearing Loss - How It Can Be Treated?

ENT Specialist, Guwahati
Conductive Hearing Loss - How It Can Be Treated?

The ear has three parts – outer, middle, and inner – through which sounds waves pass through. On reaching the inner ear, the sound waves are transmitted through a fluid medium which is carried through to the brain to produce “sound.” Hearing loss can be due to problems anywhere in this circuit – from the outer ear to nerve issues in the middle ear.

There are two main types of hearing loss
Conductive hearing loss, where problems in the outer or middle ear cause problem conducting sound waves into the inner ear
Sensorineural hearing loss, where there is a problem in the nervous portion of the hearing process

Causes

Conductive hearing loss occurs due to poor conduction of sound waves to the middle ear, where it is processed to perceive the sound. Conductive hearing loss can happen due to the following reasons:

  1. Wax: Excessive wax accumulated in the outer ear can prevent passage of sound into the middle ear
  2. Infection: The outer or middle ear could be infected, affecting passage of sound waves
  3. Tear in the eardrum: The eardrum is a membrane through which sound waves pass. A tear due to trauma or injury can hamper this process, leading to hearing loss.
  4. Impact: When there is a bang on the head, there could be temporary hearing loss due to disruption of the hearing system
  5. Hereditary: A lot of times, hearing loss is hereditary and an exact cause may not be traceable
  6. Ear tumor: Middle ear tumors can also cause conductive hearing loss
  7. Abnormal growth: Abnormal bone growth in the middle ear can cause blockage, leading to hearing loss
  8. Post-surgical: The ear is a highly complex structure, and while surgical corrections are being done to treat a condition, it is very likely that other parts can be damaged

Symptoms

In most of the conditions mentioned above, there are some sound waves which pass through, so conductive hearing loss is often partial, wherein the person can hear but it is faint. Very rarely, it is complete where the person goes completely deaf.

Management

This would depend on the cause of the hearing loss.

  1. Clearing up the wax can lead to improved hearing
  2. A tear in the eardrum or fluid buildup would need surgical repair to restore hearing
  3. Infections might require treatment with antibiotics and pain killers
  4. Tumors or bone growths would also require surgical correction for restoring hearing
  5. For outer ear blocks, audiometry is done only after the blocks are cleared
  6. If post correction, the hearing is not completely restored, hearing aids can be used, which often results in complete restoration. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

Kindly get your hearing test done asap along with speech audiometry, oaes and impedance audiometry. Non-veg food doesn't affect our hearing nor it help to save hearing but chronic alcoholism does. All the best.

My bro has duff (46%) from child hood. When we consult to a doctor at his childhood. Doctor says, he was very weak so it happened. He will recover when he grow up. And also he can not talk normally. Some words are cannot spoke by him. He can not hear from some far also. But he understands by lip reading. We already tried hearing machine at cost 30000. Is there any cure of that duff and talking clearly by any operation. My bro age is now 17 running. please doctor give any suggestion. We are suffering for him very much.

Hope while he was fitted with hearing aids, you have done the speech therapy. If not then you can try it now. But best results. Only obtained during the crucial age of speech language development.(3-5 years). Start speech therapy soon. This will help a bit.

Is there a medicine to improve hearing? or what are the ways to improve hearing longevity?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Hearing loss may be conductive (due to ear drum perforation/ ear ossicle damage) or neural deafness. It can be diagnosed by audiometry ( hearing test). If it comes out as conductive deafness, can be corrected by surgery or if it comes out neural then hearing aid is only treatment.

I'm a 14 year old female who was diagnosed with Otosclerosis. If I have mild hearing loss in my left ear how long do you think it will take for me to go completely deaf in one ear? And also a stapedectomy was recommend as a surgical treatment if I wanted it by my ENT specialist. She told me that it.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User....before Stapedectomy you can try Homoepathic THIOSINAMAN 200, 5 drops in a cup of water early morning before brushing your teeth along with Homoeopathic FERRUM PIC 6X tablets, 4 tablets, thrice daily for at least 1 month....this combination has effectively increased the level of hearing in some cases of deafness due to otosclerosis in my experience

Hearing loss can be conductive due to problem in sound conduction pathway by ear drum or ear ossicles(bones) or neural deafness that can be diagnosed by an audiometry.If it comes out to be conductive, can be treated by surgery and if neural then it will require hearing aid.

Yes. You can purchase it post consultation with Audiologist. You should take hearing instrument from a qualified audiologist only as they are trained to assess his loss, impairments in daily functioning and his needs and suggest you the best possible model as per suitability. Hearing instrument is just not an amplifier. It does a lot more function than that which ear does.

If you have uncontrolled diabetes it affects the nerves and may cause hearing loss. Your hearing loss may be due to other causes also for that you should consult an ent doctor. Nothing can assure you 100 % cure at the age of 62 yrs but keeping your blood sugar within target level makes you healthy in every ways. So, check your fbs, ppbs, hba1c, urea, creatinine, urine acr to know your current level of diabetes control and inform me. Dr. S. Modak
