There can be various causes for perceptive hearing loss, such as presbycusis (aging of the inner ear), loud noise, brain trauma or certain illnesses (such as meningitis).
Perceptive hearing loss can be progressive and is generally permanent. A traditional hearing aid is indicated for a number of people who suffer from mild perceptive hearing loss. A cochlear implant is recommended for individuals with severe perceptive hearing loss (type II) who are unable to communicate effectively with a hearing aid.
If the cochlea is severely ossified, or if the auditory nerve is not functioning at all, a cochlear implant will not help. Alternatives to a cochlear implant can then be considered, such as a double electrode-array implant or even implantation into the brainstem in certain cases.
