Cochlear anomalies are a variety of congenital anomalies which, depending on the exact time at which an insult occurs during embryogenesis, may have different manifestations. Terminology is often used imprecisely leading to confusion not only among clinicians, but also in the literature. Classification. As the cochlear loss increases to greater than 60 dB HL, however, the chance of observing an acoustic reflex threshold decreases. 23 In most cases of retrocochlear pathology, the acoustic reflexes are absent when the involved ear is stimulated. If acoustic reflexes are present, an ear with a retrocochlear disease frequently is unable to sustain.
A complete audiologic test includes pure-tone audiometry, acoustic reflex testing with a measurement of reflex decay and speech reception audiometry. Prior to the availability of ABR testing, several additional tests were used to distinguish between cochlear and retrocochlear lesions. Objectives/Hypothesis: Auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are compared for the evaluation of patients with asymmetric sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). MRI with gadolinium administration is the current gold standard for identifying retrocochlear lesions causing asymmetric SNHL.
In patients with unilateral ear symptoms, it is important to approach these patients with a high index of suspicion for cochlear or retrocochlear lesions such as an inner ear anomaly, tumor, vascular or inflammatory lesion. With conventional audiologic testing, retrocochlear lesions can be suspected by a relatively low speech discrimination.

If a retrocochlear pathology is suspected, a comprehensive audiologic evaluation should be performed, to include acoustic reflex testing, otoacoustic emissions (OAE), and an auditory brainstem response (ABR) test.
Depending on the results of these audiologic tests, further testing may be recommended. Get this from a library. Audiologic evaluation in cochlear versus retrocochlear lesions. [Elmer Owens]. Acta Otolaryngol Suppl. ; Audiologic evaluation in cochlear versus retrocochlear lesions.

Perhaps one of the oldest tests was developed by Fowler (), and it was designed to establish cochlear versus retrocochlear hearing loss. Fowler had noticed that some patients with unilateral hearing losses needed higher sensation level sounds in the poorer ear to 4/5(35).
The facility for multiple frequency tympanometry helps in evaluation of neonates and infants. An estimation of acoustic reflex thresholds provides objective means of differentially diagnosing cochlear versus retrocochlear pathology (up to caudal brainstem).
ARLT and ARD are additional confirmatory tools for retrocochlear lesion. Reflex decay is typically measured contralaterally. Reflex decay is abnormal if the reflex is reduced more than 50% over the first 10 seconds. Abnormal reflex decay is associated with retrocochlear pathologies.
Otoacoustic Emmissions. Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are used to assess cochlear function and are useful in differential diagnosis. LESION TEST “Cochlear and Retrocochlear The audiologic test battery was developed to differentiate between cochlear and Retro-cochlear (8th nerve and extra-axial brain stem) Maximum decay seen in retro-cochlear loss (8th nerve lesion), it is about 30 to SD is reduced in sensori neural loss cases and much more in cases with retro-cochlear lesions (SD score is.

He has made numerous presentations in the areas of pediatric audiology, site of lesion evaluation, auditory evoked potentials and vestibular evaluation and treatment. In He moved to Salt Lake City where he has built a nationally recognized Center for Hearing and Balance Disorders.
He has been author and co author of a number of publications. These results are characteristic of retrocochlear hearing loss. She showed neurologic abnormalities 2 days later and was diagnosed with a left thalamic hemorrhage on an imaging study.
The central auditory pathway consists of the cochlear nucleus, superior olivary complex, inferior colliculus, medial geniculate body, and auditory cortex. Audiologic evaluation in patients with acquired hypothyroidism emissions study is a fast and reliable electrophysiological method which has proven useful in the investigation of cochlear diseases, as well as in assessing hearing in patients with metabolic disorders.
The diagnosis of retrocochlear lesions in hypothyroidism had been. Thomas O. Willcox, Gregory J. Artz, in Neurology and Clinical Neuroscience, CENTRAL HEARING LOSS. Central hearing loss is caused by a lesion in the central auditory pathway or in the auditory cortex. The auditory cortex processes and interprets the sounds amplified and received by the ossicles and cochlear hair cells.
The patient responses to audiologic testing for all cases were grouped together and analyzed for purposes of this study. The description of the auditory tests important to the differential diagnosis of retrocochlear lesions has been adequately reported in previous publications.

This article describes the results of otoacoustic emissions testing in five patients with sensorineural hearing loss. We conducted an audiologic evaluation and performed image and cerebral function studies on each patient.
Our investigation revealed that all five had spontaneous otoacoustic emissions and/or distortion product otoacoustic emissions. 9 Standard audiologic techniques have been developed to avoid potential pitfalls in testing patients with retrocochlear lesions that exhibit rollover.
