Tests cognitifs de dépistage CODEX et MoCA chez l’adulte présentant une surdité évolutive

Abstract : BACKGROUND: A link was shown between age-related hearing loss and age-related cognition.AIM: The purpose of this paper is to determine whether the cognitive abilities of patients with presbycusis, evaluated by CODEX and MoCA cognitive tests, differed from those of healthy age-matched controls. METHOD: 40 adult patients with deep and progressive hearing loss were tested prior to implantation on lists of syllables, words and sentences presented in the auditory mode and with 2 cognitive tests CODEX and MoCA presented in the visual mode. RESULTS: The cognitive profile of deaf adults is different from that of hearing subjects since the items testing executive functions and episodic memory seem to discriminate deaf adults. CONCLUSIONS: The easy and rapid to use cognitive screening tests CODEX and MoCA can be used for longitudinal follow-up of cochlear implanted subjects so as to confirm the improvement of cognitive functions after hearing rehabilitation.
