Objective: To assess the accuracy of threshold using the multiple auditory steady state responses (MASSR) to bone conduction stimuli in a group of patients with conductive hearing loss.

Method: Thirty patients with conductive hearing loss were assessed by MASSR and by pure-tone audiometry, and compared the results of these two methods.

Result: The thresholds of MASSR and those of PTA were significantly correlated, and the accuracy of MASSR were similar to PTA for the patients with conductive hearing loss.

Conclusion: MASSR can be used to assess the hearing thresholds of patients with conductive hearing loss.
