Özet

OBJECTIVE. Hearing loss (HL) is common in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF), but its cause is controversial. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of CRF on the bone density of the otic capsule using densitometric measurements with MDCT and to evaluate the relationship between changes in the otic capsule density and HL in patients with CRF.
