Systematic Review of Pathogenic GJB2 Variants in the Latino Population

Conclusion: Variation in the prevalence of pathogenic GJB2 variants by country likely reflect the heterogeneous nature of ethnic ancestral contributions to the Latino population. Additional research utilizing next generation sequencing might aid in the development of assays for high throughput diagnosis of inherited hearing loss in the multitude of ethnic sub-groups that comprise this and other traditionally marginalized populations.

Conclusions and significance: Two cases showed worse THI in both mixed hearing loss cases with a small hearing improvement. The mechanism of improvement is similar to tinnitus retraining therapy including hearing aid because the increase in external sound input through hearing restoration after surgery to avoid silence.
