Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI
What sort of management for hearing problems is available for people with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI?
Some of the hearing problems associated with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI are made worse by frequent ear infections. There are medications people can take to prevent and treat these types of infections. For people with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI that have conductive hearing loss, there are a few types of ear tubes that can be inserted surgically to remove fluid and improve hearing. For people with this condition that have sensorineural, or nerve, hearing loss, hearing aids can be used to improve hearing.
