Abstract

Presbycusis is a histologically and genetically heterogenous group of disorders, which lead to progressive, primarily sensorineural hearing loss with aging. Acquired mitochondrial DNA defects have been proposed as important determinants of aging, particularly in neuro-muscular tissues. The spiral ganglion and membranous labyrinth from archival temporal… (More)
