Cochlear implantation of a deaf blind patient with mitochondrial cytopathy

Cochlear implantation of a deaf blind patient with mitochondrial cytopathy
Cochlear implantation of a deaf blind patient with mitochondrial cytopathy
Genetic defects of the mitochondrial DNA often cause sensorineural hearing impairment, accompaniment by disorders of organs within the body. This case report describes cochlear implantation of a 33-year-old deaf blind female with mitochondrial cytopathy. The outcome was very successful, and vastly improved quality of life for this patient. Many cases of mitochondrial cytopathy cause progressive deafness; it is, therefore, likely that other patients with this unusual disorder will present for cochlear implant assessment.

Abstract

Genetic defects of the mitochondrial DNA often cause sensorineural hearing impairment, accompaniment by disorders of organs within the body. This case report describes cochlear implantation of a 33-year-old deaf blind female with mitochondrial cytopathy. The outcome was very successful, and vastly improved quality of life for this patient. Many cases of mitochondrial cytopathy cause progressive deafness; it is, therefore, likely that other patients with this unusual disorder will present for cochlear implant assessment.
