Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is hearing loss that results from damage to either the cochlea or the cochlear nerve.

Complications for Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Many patients learn to cope with loss of hearing from one ear. They learn how to position themselves in a conference room or a restaurant, for example, to maximize hearing. Unfortunately, these patients have an inability to localize the direction a sound is coming from.
