Conductive Hearing Loss


Some of the Causes of Conductive Hearing Loss:

Conductive Hearing Loss
  • To Illustrate, Malformation of the shaping of the outer ear, the internal ear canal as well as the middle structures inside the ear
  • Liquid buildup and retention from colds
  • Ear infection (otitis media which is  an infection that causes fluid to impede eardrum movement
  • Allergies
  • Bad Eustachian tube functionality
  • Perforated or pierced eardrum
  • Tumors
  • Impacted wax inside the ear
  • Infections
  • Foreign object
  • Otosclerosis

Treatments for being Hearing Impaired:

Hearing loss may come having no ear canal as well as the failure of one’s own ear canal to be open after being born.  The fact that a list of dysfunction of the middle ear can be surgically fixed in all honesty is exciting.

If these are fixable with surgery,  an amplification with a bone conduction surgical  hearing aid is very helpful.  For this reason, the Hearing Impaired can have a surgically implanted, osseointegrated device (Ponto System) that will be permanent.  A daily removable hearing aid is helpful for many depending on the status of the hearing impairment.

Conductive Hearing Loss Causes

  • Infection
  • Tumors
  • Fluid from infection
  •  Eustachian tube dysfunction
  • Foreign body
  • Trauma (like a ruptured eardrum)

People with infections are given antibiotics as well as antifungal medications.  

T tell the truth, for these medications to work, the must be taken properly.  That means at the right times in the right amounts.  Proper dosing will help with the best outcomes.    More serious ear infections such as chronic middle fluid as well as small tumors often require surgery to repair.  When there is no improvement over time, the infectious ear fluids are treated with prescription antibiotics.  On the other hand non-infectious middle ear fluid is fixed by implanting pressure equalizing tubes


Hearing Impaired from Otosclerosis

Otosclerosis is when the 3rd tiny bone of hearing in the middle ear gets obstructed or the movement is limited.   Otosclerosis usually presents with hearing loss in the eary 20’s. That being the case, conductive hearing loss effects men and women from about 15 years old , all the way up to about 40.  Otosclerosis can be fixed with surgery that will remove the immobile stapes (bone) and replace it with a mobile stapes (bone) prosthesis or with a tiny hearing aid.  Even more, new Conductive Hearing Loss data has shown a correlation between measles and a genetic predisposition to otosclerosis.  In fact otosclerosis likelihood dose decrease with a measles vaccination.   In fact Hearing Impaired very fixable.
