Bone-Conduction Threshold Sensitivity in Relation to Mastoid Sclerosis The effect of mastoid sclerosis on bone-conduction threshold sensitivity was assessed by retrospective comparison of audiologic data from 14 persons with unilateral mastoid sclerosis and 13 persons with normally pneumatized mastoids. All subjects with normal mastoids had unilateral sensorineural loss; most sclerotic mastoid subjects had normal hearing in the ear ... Research Article

The effect of mastoid sclerosis on bone-conduction threshold sensitivity was assessed by retrospective comparison of audiologic data from 14 persons with unilateral mastoid sclerosis and 13 persons with normally pneumatized mastoids. All subjects with normal mastoids had unilateral sensorineural loss; most sclerotic mastoid subjects had normal hearing in the ear associated with a normally pneumatized mastoid and mixed or pure sensorineural loss on the sclerotic side. Mean interaural threshold differences and distributions of differences were similar for both groups. Sclerotic mastoids do not appear to have a significant effect on bone-conduction thresholds.
