Results: At the pretreatment of deaf guinea pigs, the threshold of ABR was 55 .30±6.73 in control group,50.20±7.32 in treatment group 1 and 47.60±8.10 in treatment group 2. After two months, the threshold of ABR was 64.60±6.63,38.10± 9.70 ,and 46.50±7.40 respectively.
groupof profound hearing loss:7.7±5.7、7.1±5.5、5.6±5.6and5.1±5.5dB.Conclusion Using MFSSR data topredict the deaf children’s, hearing threshold and can help us to fit hearing aids for the deaf children whofailed in behavior audiometry.
Connexins are translated by the gap junction protein genes that belong to one gene family. GJB2 (Cx26), GJB3 (Cx31), GJB6(Cx30), GJA1 (Cx43), and GJB1 (Cx32) are responsible for hereditary hearing loss.
Inherited LQTS is represented by the autosomal dominant Romano-ward syndrome (RWS), which is not accompanied by congenital deafness, and the autosomal recessive Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome (JLNS), which is accompanied by congenital deafness.

Prevalence and Molecular Genetic Typing of Nonsyndromic Sensorineural Deafness in Chuvash Republic
Summarized genetic epidemiological characteristics of nonsyndromic sensorineural deafness in six raions of Chuvash Republic (Cheboksary, Kanash, Morgaushi, Tsivil'sk, Mariinski Posad, and Alatyr') are presented.
Forty-five families (60 affected individuals) with autosomal recessive (AR) and 8 families (18 affected individuals) with autosomal dominant (AD) nonsyndromic sensorineural deafness (NSSD) were identified.
Background: Prelingually deaf persons usually gain only a rudimentary command of speech and prefer sign language to communicate within the deaf community without the handicap they experience in the hearing world.
Method: Data were collected with the help of semi-structured interviews; with the deaf patients these were conducted in German sign language.
Comparison of the verbal and visual language skills of the two deaf groups revealed a substantial deficit among the deaf schizophrenics.
An innovative and reliable way of measuring health-related quality of life and mental distress in the deaf community
Mental distress and quality of life in a deaf population
In addition to congenital ichthyosis he had also strabismus, horizantal nystagmus, bilateral neurosensory hearing loss, hepatomegaly and splenomegaly.
Hearing loss up to 30 dB (preserved socially adequate hearing) was found in 25 workers.
Some measures for preventing occupational noise-induced hearing loss were suggested.
Conclusion: The primary symptom of the patient was unilateral hearing loss.
In 73% of the cases the EAEP indicated the retrocochlear site of the lesion; in 27%, however, the results did not localize the exact site of the lesion owing to a lack of waves I, II and III due to a pronounced hearing loss.
