Abstract

This study is dedicated to identifying the complications of sensorineural hearing loss (SHL) after bacterial meningitis (BM) in children to optimize diagnosis and timely treatment. Complications of sensorineural hearing loss (SHL) after bacterial meningitis (BM) in children were studied using screening observation of patients who had BM from 2015 to 2018. A cohort study was conducted to detect CHT in patients with meningitis after discharge with the mandatory audiological examination. Out of all 167 treated children, 103 children underwent an audiological examination, with a diagnosis of “Bacterial meningitis” - 60.7% (n = 65) and “Enterovirus meningitis” - 73.3% (n = 52). Patients were monitored for 1 year, the corresponding clinical history data, a diagnostic procedure, preoperative imaging data, the time interval between the diagnosis of bilateral deafness and cochlear implantation, computed tomography data with fibrosis or ossification were taken. Evaluation of hearing was evaluated based on the latest available results of pure tone and speech audiometry for children.
