BACKGROUND Nonsyndromic enlargement of vestibular aqueduct (NSEVA) is an autosomal recessive hearing loss disorder that is associated with mutations in SLC26A4. However, not all patients with NSEVA carry biallelic mutations in SLC26A4. A recent study proposed that single mutations in both SLC26A4 and KCNJ10 lead to digenic NSEVA. We examined whether KCNJ10(More)
Genetic factors play an important role in hearing loss, contributing to approximately 60 % of cases of congenital hearing loss. Autosomal dominant deafness accounts for approximately 20 % of cases of hereditary hearing loss. Diseases with autosomal dominant inheritance often show pleiotropy, different degrees of penetrance, and variable expressivity. A(More)
The most common cause of nonsyndromic autosomal recessive hearing loss is mutations in GJB2. The mutation spectrum and prevalence of mutations vary significantly among ethnic groups, and the relationship between p.V37I mutation in GJB2 and the hearing phenotype is controversial. Among the 3,864 patients in this study, 106 (2.74%) had a homozygous p.V37I(More)
OBJECTIVE Mutations in the GJB2 are the most common cause of nonsyndromic autosomal recessive sensorineural hearing loss. A few mutations in GJB2 have also been reported to cause dominant nonsyndromic or syndromic hearing loss. This study analysised the GJB2 dominant mutation in Chinese deafness. METHOD 1641 patients as GJB2-related hearing loss were(More)
Hereditary non-syndromic hearing loss is the most common inherited sensory defect in humans. The KCNQ4 channel belongs to a family of potassium ion channels that play crucial roles in physiology and disease. Mutations in KCNQ4 underlie deafness non-syndromic autosomal dominant 2, a subtype of autosomal dominant, progressive, high-frequency hearing loss. A(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the curative effect of CI in children with GJB2-associated NSSNHL. METHOD The evaluations of curative effect with CI include auditory threshold, IT-MAIS/MAIS, CAP, SIR. MESP. The outcomes of 40 cases with GJB2-associated NSSNHI, were compared 80 patients with negative results of screening of gene mutation (control group). RESULT In(More)
