Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) results from changes in the inner ear (cochlea) and/or the auditory nerve (pathway) from the inner ear to the auditory cortex of the brain. More often than not, these changes cause permanent hearing loss that is not treatable with medicine or surgery. Some of the known causes of SNHL include the following: age, noise exposure, genetics, malformations of the inner ear, benign tumor, illnesses, medications known to be toxic to the ear, and injury/trauma. Hearing aids are a common solution used to assist with this type of hearing loss.
