Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is any problem delivering sound energy to your cochlea (the hearing part of your inner ear). Common causes of conductive hearing loss include a blocked ear canal, a perforated ear drum, a problem with the three small bones in the ear, or fluid in the space between the ear drum and the cochlea. Fortunately, most cases of conductive hearing loss can be improved.
Symptoms of conductive hearing loss may vary by exact cause and severity, but may include or be related to: dull hearing; sudden or persistent hearing loss; feeling full or "stuffy" in the ear; dizziness; ear drainage; Ear pain or tenderness.
If you are experiencing hearing loss, you should see an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist or an otolaryngologist who can make a specific diagnosis for you and discuss treatment options with you, including surgery. A key part of the evaluation is a hearing test performed by an audiologist (a professional who tests hearing function) to determine the severity of the hearing loss and to determine whether the hearing loss is conductive, sensorineural, or mixed.
Based on the results of your hearing test and examination by an ENT specialist, as well as results from other potential tests, such as imaging your ear with CT or MRI, the specialist will make various recommendations for treatment options.
Treatment options can include:
1. Observed by repeated hearing tests at subsequent follow-up visits;
2. Evaluation and installation of hearing aids and other hearing aids;
3. Priority seats for school children;
4. Surgery to address the cause of hearing loss;
5. Surgery to implant hearing aids.
These conditions may not be necessary, but are likely to require surgery:
2. Bone disease;
3. Hearing blocking;
4. Otitis media (if chronic or recurrent);
5. The tympanic membrane is severely retracted;
6. There is a hole in the ear drum;
7. Middle ear bone injury;
Many types of conductive hearing loss can also be treated using traditional hearing or implanted hearing devices. Likewise, your ENT specialist and/or audiologist can help you decide which device is best for you and your lifestyle.
