Medical, surgical and surgical treatment of external, middle and inner ear and hearing nerve diseases are performed in Liv Hospital Otoneurology.
Middle Ear Effusion: Middle ear fluid problems are common in childhood. They usually develop following recurrent upper respiratory tract infections. Although a significant proportion of the patients respond to medication, in patients who do not respond, it may be necessary to insert a tube.
The eardrum is a mechanical barrier that protects the middle ear from the external environment. Ear inflammation is common when there is a hole. The hole in the eardrum also causes hearing loss. For this reason, it is recommended to repair the eardrum by surgery.
Kulesteatoma:The external auditory tract is caused by the skin to pass behind the eardrum and proceed in an uncontrolled manner. Continuous and bad smelling ear discharge and hearing loss is seen. If it is not treated surgically, it may cause fatal consequences such as meningitis and brain abscess as inflammation reaches the surrounding organs.
Otosclerosis (calcification of the stirrup): It is more common in middle age, women and in families with a history of otosclerosis. Hearing loss can be surgically removed with the help of a prosthesis placed between the anvil bone and the inner ear.
Hearing loss from the inner ear: Hearing loss from the inner ear may be caused by genetic or acquired causes. In mild to moderate hearing loss, conventional hearing aids may be sufficient, while severe loss of active ear ear implants or a cochlear implant or a brain stem implant may be required.
