Pathology of Presbycusis

Dr Sampurna Roy MD

 

                                                                                                                      

 

High-tone bilateral perception deafness gradually affects lower tones with advancing years.

It is often associated with atherosclerosis. 

It has been reported that individuals with downward-sloping audiometric patterns of presbycusis exhibit degeneration of the stria vascularis, spiral ganglion cells, inner hair cells, and outer hair cells that is associated with the severity of hearing loss.

Treatment is by hearing aid.
