Posturographic Analysis in the Elderly with and without sensorineural Hearing Loss

Abstract: Introduction Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is a serious public health problem. Some evidence suggests a significant relationship between SNHL and balance disorders. The inability to maintain balance associated with SNHL while standing further increases the risk of falls among older people. Objective To investigate the association between SNHL on the postural balance in elderly individuals of both genders. Methods The sample consisted of 247 (166 women) physically independent elderly ind… Show more

“…Nevertheless, the children with severe and profound SNHL manifested more static equilibrium instabilities than the children with intact hearing [ 31 , 32 ]. Though SNHL prevalence increases with aging [ 33 ], few studies have observed the balance in older adults with permanent hearing impairment [ 34 37 ]. Considering these studies, significant alterations in postural balance were also found in this population because of impaired processing of visual and vestibular information, which requires greater assistance from the auditory system to maintain postural balance [ 38 40 ].…”

“…Common differential diagnoses include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Ménière'sdisease, and vestibular neuropathy. These can be readily differentiated by applying a systematic approach, and usually respond to treatment [16]. Related studies were reviewed [17][18][19][20][21].…”

“…Such proximity increases the probability of an impairment in one system affecting the other system (e.g., Meniere's disease, acoustic neuromas, and vestibular labyrinthitis). Indirect factors include processes that can simultaneously affect both balance and hearing such as the non-pathological process of ageing (Agmon et al, 2017; de Almeida Ciquinato et al, 2020) or pathological processes such as diabetes (Frisina et al, 2006), thyroid problems (Bellman et al, 1996), and oto-vestibulotoxic medication (Chen et al, 2007).…”
