AbstractOrthognathic surgery, which is performed to correct dentofacial abnormalities, has been associated with postoperative reduction in hearing sensitivity and middle ear dysfunction. In this study, the pre- and postoperative hearing status and middle ear function of 37 Chinese subjects who underwent orthognathic surgery, as well as subjective reports of aural symptoms, particularly hearing loss, tinnitus, fullness and otalgia, were investigated. There was a significant increase in the number of subjects with measured loss, perceived loss and aural fullness from pre-surgery to 1 week post surgery. However, the percentage of increase was small compared with previous findings. This difference in findings was attributed to the type of surgical techniques used, and to the fact that the Chinese population appears to be less susceptible to middle ear effusion. Subjective complaints of aural symptoms may not be accompanied by measured loss.
