Presbyacusis

Sensorineural hearing loss is an affliction that affects all people to a greater or lesser degree over the age of 60 years. The greatest losses are sustained in the higher frequencies, but there is a moderate degree of loss of hearing throughout the whole range of audible frequencies. It has been shown that the pathological basis of this condition is a complete degeneration of the organ of Corti and associated nerve supply at the end of the basal coil of the cochlea and moderate outer hair cell loss throughout the whole of the rest of the cochlea. An illustrated account of this condition will be found in Michaels and Hellquist [68].
