Ear, Nose, and Throat

The ear is essential for many of our most basic functions. It is crucial to distinguish between genetic disorders and those caused by environmental factors as early as possible. Rapid and informative postnatal testing for genetic disorders of the ear, nose, and throat allow for genetic counseling and may facilitate early interventions to significantly improve prognoses. We have identified genetic variants associated with diseases related to hearing -loss in over 190 different genes. Our testing options can help pinpoint the exact cause of inherited deafness and related syndromes.

Hearing loss is a common condition in children, affecting 1 in 100 live births. In more than 50.0 % of cases, there is a genetic cause for this disorder, of which 70.0 % experience non-syndromic hearing loss. CentoHear includes genes associated with syndromic and non-syndromic hearing loss. Both autosomal recessive and dominant genes are included in the panel. In addition, CentoHear includes several other syndromes, such as Alport, Pendred, Waardenburg, Usher, and branchio-oto-renal, among others.
