What is conductive hearing loss and its treatment

There are two fundamental sorts of hearing loss: conductive hearing loss (where the issue lies in the center ear – ear drum or ossicles) and sensorineural hearing loss (where there is harm in the inward ear – cochlea or hearing nerve).


A conductive hearing loss influences the section of sound between the ear drum and the inward ear. Sound goes down the ear channel to the ear drum and through the center ear, where the sound is transmitted over the center ear by the three bones called the ossicles to the internal ear.


Causes of Conductive hearing loss:

Infection : Infection and inflammation in the outer ear (otitis externa) or middle ear

Wax (cerumen) : A build-up of wax in the outer ear may stop sound from reaching the ear drum

Hole in the eardrum (perforation)  : A hole in the ear drum may be caused by several things including trauma (damage), pressure, ear surgery and infection

Glue ear : Irritation in the center ear with related liquid filling the center ear space around the ossicles. The liquid stops the ossicles and ear drum from moving viably and prevents sound from going effortlessly through to the inward ear.

Problem with the small bones (ossicles) : Stiffening of the chain of small bones in the middle ear prevents sound from passing easily through to the inner ear.


Conductive hearing loss can be treated via Microscopic Ear Surgery that is performed by ENT specialist. You can contact Dr Ruchika, Medicaid hospital Amritsar for this treatment.
