Objective: To evaluate the effect of pregnancy on the hearing of women with otosclerosis. 
Phenotype of the first otosclerosis family linked to OTSC10
TLDR
To report on the audiometric findings in the first otosclerosis family linked to OTSC10, researchers used a state-of-the-art machine to assess the response of the central nervous system to Tournaisian tremor. Expand
Otosclerosis 1: the aetiopathogenesis of otosclerosis
TLDR
The majority of studies on families with otosclerosis suggest an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance with incomplete penetrance, which is characterised by alternating phases of bone resorption and formation. Expand

TLDR
Social, rather than biological, factors surrounding parenthood such as increased overall health care utilization may explain prior associations between pregnancy and otosclerosis. Expand
The pathophysiology of otosclerosis: Review of current research
TLDR
Different etiological factors studied so far in otosclerosis pathophysiology are analyzed and most recent findings and possible new research pathways are discussed. Expand
Research Article Otorhinolaryngological complaints in pregnancy: a prospective study in a tertiary care centre
TLDR
This study design consists of pregnant women coming with various ENT complaints to outpatient department and recognizing and compartmentalizing such complaints; and additionally gaining figures reflecting the frequency of such complaints. Expand
Diagnostik und operative Therapie der Otosklerose
TLDR
Die Otosklerose ist eine für den HNO-Arzt/Ärztin wichtige, oft in (Differenzial-)Diagnostik und Therapie anspruchsvolle Erkrankung wichtigen wichtiges wichtiger Institutionen. Expand
Otorhinolaryngological complaints in pregnancy: a prospective study in a tertiary care centre
TLDR
Pregnant women coming with various ENT complaints to outpatient department are recognized and compartmentalized, and practitioners should have general idea of the etiology, clinical severity and most favorable treatment of these conditions. Expand
Familial Otosclerosis Associated with Osteogenesis Imperfecta: A Case Report
TLDR
Two cases of familial otosclerosis with different clinical features are discussed, and it is hypothesize that the difference in hearing level correlates with the different in computed tomography findings. Expand
The Genetics of otosclerosis
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to review the genetics of otosclerosis and to provide insight into studies that could be performed to elucidate disease pathogenesis. Expand
Otosclerosis: An update on diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
The traditional treatment of otosclerosis, stapes surgery, is now being augmented or replaced by innovations in hearing aid technology and cochlear implants. Expand

Otosclerosis and pregnancy: a study of the influence of pregnancy on the hearing threshold before and after stapedectomy.
In a retrospective study of 144 fertile women subjected to operation for otosclerosis by the method of Shea or House, we found a fall in the hearing threshold in the operated ear which seemed to be aExpand
Pregnancy and otosclerosis.
TLDR
It is confirmed that pregnancy does involve a risk of aggravating deafness in clinical otosclerosis and there is no strong evidence that pregnancies cause any alteration to the actual footplate pathology of female patients. Expand

TLDR
The incidence of clinical otosclerosis among nulliparous women, who used a variety of OCs for 12–36 months, is equal to that of the population as a whole, but lower than the incidence found in previously parous women. Expand

TLDR
Calcium and vitamin D replacement therapy resulted in significant hearing improvement in 3 of 16 patients; these data support a causal correlation and are important, since the deafness resulting from cochlear involvement may be reversible. Expand
No Evidence of Measles Virus in Stapes Samples from Patients with Otosclerosis
TLDR
These highly sensitive methods could not evidence the presence of the measles virus in any of the bone samples or primary bone cell cultures, and the hypothesis of persistent measles virus infection in otosclerosis is not confirmed. Expand
Otosclerosis: a genetically heterogeneous disease involving at least three different genes.
TLDR
Nine additional families were recruited and analyzed to investigate the importance of microsatellite markers of chromosome 15 and 5q and the results indicate that, besides OTSC1 and OtsC2, there must be at least one additional otosclerosis locus. Expand
