Many patients think that neurological deafness is conductive deafness, but this is not the case. There is a big difference between these two deafness diseases.

What is the difference between neural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss?

The lesions of neurological deafness are mainly located in the auditory nerve and its short-circuit conduction. It is characterized by a significant decrease in speech recognition rate. The main causes include acute and chronic infectious diseases, Meniere's syndrome, acoustic neuroma, and labyrinthitis. wait.


Conductive deafness refers to deafness caused by lesions in the outer and middle ears that cause obstacles in the conduction of sound. Common causes of conductive hearing loss include cerumen, foreign bodies, inflammation in the external auditory canal, as well as congenital atresia of the ear canal, acute and chronic suppurative otitis media, acute and chronic non-suppurative otitis media, and acute and chronic non-suppurative otitis media, also known as Catarrhal otitis media or secretory otitis media, effusion otitis media, congenital auricle, external auditory canal deformity, tumors, bullous myringitis, early otosclerosis, etc.


The difference between conductive deafness and neurological deafness is generally different causes of disease, different clinical symptoms, different treatment methods, etc. Reasonable treatment methods can be selected according to the individual situation. Promote the rapid disappearance of the disease and achieve therapeutic effects.
1. Different causes of disease: There are many causes of neurological deafness, which may be developmental defects, drug poisoning, excessive mental stress, etc., which are prone to neurological deafness. Conductive hearing loss may be caused by atresia of the external auditory canal, hypoplasia of the vestibular window, hypoplasia of the tympanum, etc.
2. Different clinical symptoms: Sensorineural deafness is prone to hearing abnormalities, hyperacusis, and dizziness, while conductive deafness is prone to lead to various adverse reactions such as deafness, tinnitus, dizziness, and headaches. Generally, conductive deafness may Symptoms will become more obvious and may recur.
3. Different treatment methods: Nervous deafness can generally be treated with nerve-trophic drugs according to the doctor's advice, such as methylcobalamin tablets, vitamin B1 tablets, vitamin B6 tablets, etc. Conductive deafness may require the use of glucocorticoid drugs. For treatment, you can use prednisone acetate tablets, dexamethasone acetate tablets, hydrocortisone acetate tablets, etc. under the guidance of a doctor. Generally, the treatment effect is more obvious after taking the medication and can promote recovery.


Nerve deafness and conductive deafness are two different deafness diseases. They must be accurately distinguished and treated scientifically. In addition, patients should be reminded that these two deafness diseases are poorly cured and cannot be completely and effectively cured. In order to improve the curability of this disease, it is also necessary to provide relevant care after treatment, such as strengthening nutrition, protecting the ear canal from water, and staying away from various noisy environments. Doing these can assist scientific methods in rapid treatment and achieve the best results. Good recovery.
