About 20,000 people in the United States suffer from hearing loss, most common and prevalent among persons fifty years and older. Approximately 3,000 new cases per year are reported and these losses are expected to increase as the number of older Americans who may acquire hearing loss continues to increase.
hearing loss, cochlear, is a loss of hearing and can occur in many ways. Losses can cause difficulty interacting with friends and the family. If the cause is found it can be treated and the damage corrected.
Hearing loss cannot be cured. However, with appropriate treatment, the symptoms can be effectively controlled to the point where the patient no longer perceives hearing loss as a problem. Although hearing is a handicap, most hearing aids do offer an opportunity for recovery.
Hearing impairment is most common among all age groups. Nearly 40% report hearing loss, which is likely underestimated owing to reluctance to seek help, uncertainty about the cause, or the need for protection against further damage. Although some treatments are available, their application requires more than an average degree of education, knowledge, skill, or experience. Hearing rehabilitation and education should be part of routine medical training. Patients can benefit from multidisciplinary evaluation through the use of a comprehensive otologic consultation, hearing aid counseling, follow-up appointments and audiometrics/cochlear implants.
Hearing loss may have several causes, but a significant portion is not due to noise exposure; instead, genes contribute to susceptibility, lifestyle choices contribute to hearing loss, and some hearing loss may occur at any age.
The presence of one or two signs, a history of noise exposure and a history of head injury are good predictors of hearing loss. Hearing loss can be categorized as high frequency or low frequency. Hearing aids can be prescribed to those who loss is mainly in the high frequency range.
Results from a recent clinical trial of the current study are encouraging. Results from a recent clinical trial for patients receiving NU-HIL24 implantation show very good subjective and objective hearing outcomes. Despite the potential for a lower complication rate, this study demonstrated that NUHIL24 could be utilized for patients with mild-to-severe noise-induced hearing loss. NUHIL24 can serve to assist with both hearing recovery and prevention of hearing loss from an earlier stage.
Inadequate or absent post electrode responses due to preactivated bipolar stimulation are the usual cause of delayed postoperative recovery. The electrode impedances appear to be similar to those of a normal cochlea and thus appear to be sufficient for stimulating the auditory ganglion cells. Post electrode thresholds vary considerably, both between and within patients; they may fluctuate due to changes in central or peripheral stimulation caused by, for example, mood swings, physical activities, or sleep deprivation. Post electrode responses appear to be dependent on the nature of bipolar cochlear stimulation and on the stimulation rate.
This is the first study to compare the effects of a second implant in the same chamber. The second implant did not provide any beneficial effects in cochlear implant recipients.
The most common cause of hearing loss is noise. This is why there are many preventive measures that you can take to decrease this disease. For example, the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders"

The new treatments of hearing loss reported in this article are from small studies on small number of patients; hence they should be confirmed in larger studies on larger number of patients. But it is expected that many new treatments of hearing loss will be discovered in the future. One possible solution could be for surgeons to use hearing aid devices through [in-ear monitors] (IEM) to treat a patient with hearing loss before surgery. This way it could protect the inner ear part of the patients from the harmful effects of surgery and reduce complications.
Based on these data, the efficacy of L24 cochlear implantation may be the result of two factors: (1) the stimulating capabilities of the implantable component, and (2) the ability of the electrical signal to enter into the cortex.
