a pathologic condition in which spongy bone grows around the footplate of the stapes (stirrup bone in the middle ear connected to the inner ear fluid) producing conductive hearing loss.
sclerosis of stapedial foot process in the oval window of the cochlea X Y Z
a hereditary condition of unknown cause in which irregular ossification (development of bone) occurs in the ossicles (small bones in the ear) of the middle ear causing hearing loss
A condition in which the bones of the middle ear become immobile because of bony growth.
Progressive hearing loss caused by immobility of the stapes bone.
a condition that often runs in families and often begins around the age of 30. It tends to affect more women than men. It is caused by a bony overgrowth of the stapes, one of the chain of ossicles in the middle ear. This link in the chain becomes more rigid and sound vibrations can't pass through it and hearing will gradually become worse. Hearing aids can be useful for people with otosclerosis unless hearing loss is severe. Often, an operation called a stapesectomy can be performed, where a tiny â€˜pegâ€™ replaces the stapes.
a conductive hearing loss caused when the middle ear no longer transmits sound properly from the eardrum to the inner ear.
A condition where the ossicles (see above) become immobile because of deformed growth.
A disease condition in the middle ear whereby the bone of the base of the stapes overgrown, thus preventing the smooth movement in the oval window of the inner ear. This solidification causes hearing loss, but can be alleviated successfully by surgery, or a hearing aid.
hereditary disorder in which ossification of the labyrinth of the inner ear causes tinnitus and eventual deafness
Abnormal bone formation in the middle ear that may cause a conductive hearing loss.
a formation of spongy bone about the stpaes and the oval window of the ear, causing progressive dearness.Otosclerosis
The abnormal growth or hardening of the bones of the middle ear. Otosclerosis prevents the transmission of sound to the hearing nerve in the inner ear, resulting in hearing loss. (Ear, Nose & Throat)
Progressive deafness caused by bone formation around structures in the middle ear.
A condition causing fixation of the ear bones in the middle ear typically involving the stapes or "stirrup" bone. This condition may involve the cochlea causing nerve hearing loss.
abnormal growth of bone of the inner ear. This bone prevents structures within the ear from working properly and causes hearing loss. For some people with otosclerosis, the hearing loss may become severe.
an arthritic condition of the ear bones
An abnormal condition of the middle ear in which there is a formation of spongy bone onto the footplate of the stapes, resulting in a conductive hearing loss.
An abnormal growth of bone in the middle ear, which prevents structures within the ear from working properly, causing hearing loss.
abnormal growth of bone in the inner ear, which prevents structures within the ear from working properly, resulting in a gradual loss of hearing.
Otosclerosis is a progressive degenerative condition of the temporal bone which can result in hearing loss.
