Bilateral tinnitus is reported in about 3% of those with better hearing thresholds than 25 dB HL in the worse ear at high frequencies, with unilateral tinnitus reported in about 2%. These tinnitus prevalences increase in line with severity of impairment to 10% (bilateral) and 15% (unilateral) for those with 85 dB HL or more in the worse ear, averaged over the high frequencies (5% of the population). The prevalence of tinnitus is very susceptible to small changes in the protocol that define the precise condition of concern, and in any tinnitus study this has to be well controlled.

At least half of all cases of permanent childhood hearing impairment are known to have a genetic cause (Reardon, 1992a, 1992b; Morton and Nance, 2006). Mutations in around 120 genes have been identified as contributing to PCHI – around 80 causing syndromes that include hearing loss and over 40 responsible for ‘non-syndromic’ hearing loss. 5% of total) made up 58% of children who would go on to be diagnosed with PCHI by the age of 5 years. Risk factors remain important because the high risk may extend beyond the neonatal period, indicating the need for further observation of children as they develop.

Just below the oval window is another small hole into the inner ear called the round window (fenestra rotunda). This is closed by a thin membrane, and when the footplate of the stapes moves ‘in and out’, then the round window membrane moves ‘out and in’ because the fluid in the inner ear transmits the pressure changes. The malleus and incus are supported in the middle ear by several membranes and ligaments, which minimise their weight, allow them to move easily and bring them a blood supply. Unfortu- nately, this leaves only a little space for the passage of air from the middle ear to the attic.
