Sequencing of the other mitochondrial tRNA genes from this family did not show any other changes except for a homoplasmic A to G base change at bp 4336 in the tRNAGln gene. This base change is present in about 1% of the white population and although it has been reported in patients with Alzheimers or Parkinsons disease in some studies,7 any specific disease association remains uncertain.11 Hearing loss has not been reported in any of these persons, although such information was not actively sought. The A4336G mutation is therefore unlikely to be the primary cause of hearing loss in this family although it may contribute to the high penetrance of the T7510C mutation in this family.. Several mtDNA point mutations have been associated with non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Generally these mutations are homoplasmic or present at very high levels (,95%) and presumably exert only very mildly deleterious effects which are sufficient to affect the inner ear but with no noticeable effect on ...

Transplantation of exogenous stem cells has been proposed as a treatment to prevent or reverse sensorineural hearing loss. Here, we investigate the effects of transplantation of adult human olfactory mucosa-derived stem cells on auditory function in A/J mice, a strain exhibiting early-onset progressive sensorineural hearing loss. Recent evidence indicates that these stem cells exhibit multipotency in transplantation settings and may represent a subtype of mesenchymal stem cell. Olfactory stem cells were injected into the cochleae of A/J mice via a lateral wall cochleostomy during the time period in which hearing loss first becomes apparent. Changes in auditory function were assessed 1 month after transplantation and compared against animals that received sham injections. Hearing threshold levels in stem cell-transplanted mice were found to be significantly lower than those of sham-injected mice (p | .05) for both click and pure tone stimuli. Transplanted cells survived within the perilymphatic
OBJECTIVE: The immunosuppressive agent cyclosporin A (CsA) has contributed to the success of organ and bone marrow transplantation. CsA-related neurotoxicity is a well-known occurrence. Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) due to initiation of CsA treatment is an extremely rare finding. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 32-year-old man who had undergone technically uneventful cadaveric renal transplantation for focal glomerulosclerosis when 25 years old was evaluated as the result of a 10-month history of bilateral hearing loss. The patient had been taking only CsA (150 mg twice daily) and methylprednisolone. RESULTS: Progressive bilateral SNHL was confirmed by an audiological examination. Eight months after dose reduction of CsA, pure-tone audiometry excluded progression of hearing loss. CONCLUSIONS: To the best of our knowledge, only rare cases of CsA-related hearing loss have been reported, and none after long-term CsA treatment. Audiological findings confirmed the cochlear origin of SNHL in our patient. ...
Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. More than 90 percent of all hearing aid wearers have sensorineural hearing loss. The most common causes of sensorineural hearing loss are age related changes and noise exposure. A sensorineural hearing loss may also result from disturbance of inner ear circulation, increased inner fluid pressure or from disturbances of nerve transmission. Sensorineural hearing loss is also called "cochlear loss," an "inner ear loss" and is also commonly called "nerve loss." Years ago, many professionals said there was nothing that could be done for sensorineural hearing loss that is totally incorrect today. There are many excellent options for the patient with sensorineural hearing loss ...
The inner part of the ear contains tiny hair cells (nerve endings), which change sounds into electric signals. The nerves then carry these signals to the brain. Damage can occur in either or both of those locations resulting in a sensorineural hearing loss. The loss can be present at birth (congenital), or acquired (occurring after birth). Some possible causes of a sensorineural hearing loss can include:. ...
SSHL (Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss) is a form of sensorineural acoustic loss that is rapid and usually unexplainable. The loss of hearing from SSHL may happen in a singular moment or occur over several days and generally affects only 1 ear, with 9 out of 10 people presenting unilaterally. SSHL should be treated as an aural emergency, and with treatment, most cases recover either completely or partially.. PBHL (Progressive Bilateral Hearing Loss) is a form of sensorineural loss that affects both ears and progresses over time, either rapidly over several months or slowly over years. Presbycusis is an example of PBHL that progresses slowly, while autoimmune disorders that attack the inner ear structures are examples of more rapidly progressing PBHL.. ...
Alport syndrome (AS) is characterized by renal, cochlear, and ocular involvement. In the absence of treatment, renal disease progresses from microscopic hematuria to proteinuria, progressive renal insufficiency, and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in all males with X-linked (XL) AS, and in all males and females with autosomal recessive (AR) AS. Progressive sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is usually present by late childhood or early adolescence. Ocular findings include anterior lenticonus (which is virtually pathognomonic), maculopathy (whitish or yellowish flecks or granulations in the perimacular region), corneal endothelial vesicles (posterior polymorphous dystrophy), and recurrent corneal erosion. In individuals with autosomal dominant (AD) AS, ESRD is frequently delayed until later adulthood, SNHL is also relatively late in onset and ocular involvement is rare. Thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN) is characterized by persistent microscopic hematuria often first observed in childhood; ...
The main features of the disease are linked to the deposit of glycolipids (Gb3) in the vascular endothelium, smooth muscle cells, renal epithelium, myocardium, dorsal root ganglia, autonomic nervous system, and the brain. Clinically, it is associated with cerebral strokes, progressive renal failure with proteinuria, cardiac hypertrophy, arrhythmias, valvular insufficiency, and myocardial infarction. Other manifestations of the disease are progressive sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo, postprandial abdominal cramps, and achalasia. Pain is frequent in both hands and feet as a result of progressive neuropathy. Skeletal involvement causes arthralgia, articular erosion, avascular necrosis, and limitation of the temporomandibular joint. As the disease evolves, the lungs become involved and pulmonary function tests confirm the presence of an obstructive ventilator disease. Finally, the characteristic presence of angiokeratomas on the skin, mucous membranes, corneal abnormalities, as well as the ...
A 24-year-old man presented to the emergency department following an assault where he was punched in the face and fell backwards hitting his head onto concrete. Upon arrival, he was intoxicated with a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) of 12/15. Due to his agitation, he was sedated and intubated to allow formal assessment of his injuries including CT imaging. Upon withdrawal of sedation and extubation, the patient presented with complete deafness, tinnitus and dizziness on mobilisation. Ear, nose and throat examination revealed a right haemotympanum. There was no obvious facial nerve palsy or other neurological deficits, and clinical balance tests, including Rombergs, Unterbergers and head impulse tests, were normal. Further audiological assessment … ...
Oral corticosteroids are routinely used for primary treatment of sudden sensorineural hearing loss, once primary causes are ruled out, although data are limited to support their use; there are also limited data to support the use of intratympanic corticosteroids for primary therapy or for treatment of those whose hearing did not improve with initial therapy. A clinical trail sponsored by the National Institutes of Health that compares oral with intratympanic corticosteroid treatment for primary therapy is under way ...

Congenital Hearing Loss - the child is born with the hearing loss). Prenatal damage to the cochlear may be due to the partial or lack of cochlear development (inner ear), viral or parasitical invasion, spontaneous malformations or inherited syndromes. The most common syndromes are Ushers syndrome and Pendreds syndrome. Ushers syndrome results in a hearing loss that ranges from moderate to profound and a degenerative visual loss. Any child with a profound hearing loss should be evaluated for eye disorders. Pendreds syndrome is a recessive endocrine-metabolic disorder characterized by goiter formation and results in a moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss that is usually progressive in nature. ...

Hamzeh et al (2016) reported a family with two brothers affected with Chudley McCullough Syndrome. The two children were born to healthy consanguineous Yemeni parents. Both had bilateral severe sensorineural hearing loss and had cochlear implants placed in their right ears. Both had moderate speech delay and mild developmental delay. They had hyperextensible elbow and knee joints. Brain CT in the older brother revealed posterior third ventricular cystic lesion, suggestive of an arachnoid cyst, along with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. In the younger brother, CT brain showed the presence of a large posterior third ventricular arachnoid cyst extending to the left of the midline, compressing the left hemisphere and lateral ventricles. Partial agenesis of the corpus callosum was also seen. There was a positive family history of hearing loss and speech delay in the family, with the two of the parents maternal cousins being affected. Molecular analysis identified a novel homozygous mutation ...
Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear structures such as the cochlea or the cochlear nerve. This often occurs due to aging and is called presbyacusis. It can also occur due to infection or less commonly tumours. If a patient has one-sided sensorineural hearing loss, an assessment by the ENT surgeon is necessary to exclude brain tumour (cerebellopontine angle). Sensorineural hearing loss can also be congenital; present since birth. And it is important to detect this early because it can affect the speech development of the child ...
Splitting of speech into two signals by comb filters having complementary magnitude response and presenting these signals to the two ears has helped in improving the perception for persons with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Investigation is carried out to improve the comb filters based on auditory critical bands, with the objective of minimizing the perceived spectral distortion. Listening tests were conducted to find the difference in intensity with monaural and binaural presentations for equal loudness perception. Based on the results obtained, 256-coefficient linear phase FIR comb filters were designed using frequency sampling technique, to obtain magnitude response with pass band ripple of 1 dB, stop band attenuation of 30 dB, and crossovers adjusted to lie between −4 dB and −6 dB with respect to pass band response. Listening tests involving closed set identification of 12 vowel-consonant-vowel syllables were conducted, to compare the performance of the new comb filter with the filter

Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. Inside our inner ears are tiny detects sound and the cochlear nerve that transmits it to the brain. It often caused by noise, disease and the natural process of ageing. Throughout our lives, we gradually lose our vital hair cells and this form of hearing loss can vary from mild to profound, temporary or permanent. Treatment for sensorineural hearing loss tends to be either a hearing aid or a cochlear implant, but we will consider all options to find you the solution that best suits your lifestyle.. ...
Alexia, a 5-year-old girl, was born with profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. In August 2008, she received amplification for the first time. Initially she seemed very serious, almost bewildered, by the sounds she was hearing and the faces she saw via the Internet, yet she actively participated in every session with complete focus. It soon became apparent that, despite her profound hearing loss, she has a great deal of potential to function in the hearing world. In just one 20-minute session, she progressed through two stages of aural habilitation: detection of nonverbal and verbal (animal) sounds, and identification of animal sounds. We put pictures of two animals on the screen and she could identify with 100% accuracy the animal that made the sound we were making off-camera. Since then she has moved to minimal pairs, which she identifies with 80% accuracy. She has begun to hear and produce Spanish morphemes indicating plurality and verb tenses. Even after 10 weeks of individual ...
Usher syndrome (USH) describes a group of autosomal recessive diseases with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss and visual impairment phenotypically similar to retinitis pigmentosa (RP) [1-4]. Prevalence of USH in different populations is estimated to range from 3.5 to 6.2 per 100,000, thus making it the most frequent cause of combined deaf-blindness worldwide [5]. The condition has been classified into three clinical subtypes (USH1, USH2, and USH3), based on the severity and progression of the hearing impairment, presence or absence of vestibular dysfunction, and the age of onset of RP [1]. This classification remains in clinical use, although recent progress on the molecular genetics and clinical research of USH has revealed broad genetic and clinical heterogeneity [3,6]. Atypical forms of USH have been identified within all three clinical types, and there is considerable overlap of symptoms among the subtypes. A distinguishing feature of USH3 is the wide spectrum of nonlinear progressive ...
Mitochondrial: Mitochondria are small organelles in our cells that have their own DNA, known as mtDNA. The number of mtDNA base pairs is only about 16,000, but there are many copies of mtDNA in each cell. We inherit all of our mtDNA from our mothers, so if the hearing loss is caused by a mutation in mtDNA, all the children of affected mothers (but none of the children of affected fathers) would be expected to have hearing loss. An mtDNA mutation, in which a G instead of an A is found at position 1555 (called A1555G), causes severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. However, in some individuals with the A1555G mutation, the hearing loss does not occur until after exposure to aminoglycoside antibiotics. Thus, knowing this mutation is in the family can help to prevent aminoglycoside-induced deafness. ...
... is a multisystemic disorder characterized by cone-rod dystrophy, hearing loss, obesity, insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), and progressive hepatic and renal dysfunction. Approximately 450 cases have been identified worldwide. The clinical features, age of onset, and severity can vary greatly among and within families. The cone-rod retinal dystrophy usually develops within a few weeks after birth, the first symptoms are nystagmus and extreme photodysphoria or light sensitivity. It is progressive and leads to blindness, usually by the second decade of life. Most patients develop mild-to-moderate slowly progressive bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Dilated cardiomyopathy manifests in approximately two-thirds of patients, either as infants or as adolescents. Patients are at risk of sudden congestive heart failure at any age. Obesity, insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia are early and consistent features. Patients have
Auditory evoked potentials (AEP) are highly demanded during the whole process of equipping patients with cochlear implants (CI). They play an essential role in preoperative diagnostics, intraoperative testing, and postoperative monitoring of auditory performance and success. The versatility of AEPs is essentially enhanced by their property to be evokable by acoustic as well as electric stimuli. Thus, the electric responses of the auditory system following acoustic stimulation and recorded by the conventional surface technique as well as by transtympanic derivation from the promontory (Electrocochleography [ECochG]) are used for the quantitative determination of hearing loss and, additionally, electrically evoked compound actions potentials (ECAP) can be recorded with the intracochlear electrodes of the implant just adjacent to the stimulation electrode to check the functional integrity of the device and its coupling to the auditory system ...
Hearing loss or hearing impairment can be categorized as either conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss or a mixed type that exhibits underlying symptoms of both conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.
Acquired sensorineural hearing loss is characterized by a loss of functioning hair cells in the Organ of Corti, with greater hair cell loss correlating with more severe hearing impairment. Children with sensorineural hearing loss experience difficulty developing normal language which usually leads to poor academic and social development. Currently, there are no reparative therapeutic options available, and treatments are designed to augment the diminished function of the injured Organ of Corti.. Pre-clinical data suggest progenitor cell infusions may enhance intrinsic repair mechanisms in the Organ of Corti which may restore hair cells. This treatment could ultimately lead to hearing improvement. Human umbilical cord blood (hUCB) is an available, autologous, stored progenitor cell population available for potential therapeutic use. The primary objective of this study is to determine the safety of autologous hUCB infusion in children with acquired hearing loss. The secondary objective is to ...

Pendred syndrome (PDS) and DFNB4 comprise a phenotypic spectrum of sensorineural hearing loss disorders that typically result from biallelic mutations of the SLC26A4 gene. Although PDS and DFNB4 are recessively inherited, sequencing of the coding regions and splice sites of SLC26A4 in individuals suspected to be affected with these conditions often fails to identify two mutations. We investigated the potential contribution of large SLC26A4 deletions and duplications to sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) by screening 107 probands with one known SLC26A4 mutation by Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA). A heterozygous deletion, spanning exons 4-6, was detected in only one individual, accounting for approximately 1% of the missing mutations in our cohort. This low frequency is consistent with previously published MLPA results. We also examined the potential involvement of digenic inheritance in PDS/DFNB4 by sequencing the coding regions of FOXI1 and KCNJ10. Of the 29 probands who were

This gene encodes a member of the eyes absent (EYA) family of proteins. The encoded protein may act as a transcriptional activator through its protein phosphatase activity, and it may be important for eye development, and for continued function of the mature organ of Corti. Mutations in this gene are associated with postlingual, progressive, autosomal dominant hearing loss at the deafness, autosomal dominant nonsyndromic sensorineural 10 locus. Defects in this gene are also associated with dilated cardiomyopathy 1J. Three transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene ...
