Does Osteogenesis imperfecta lead to a Hearing loss?

According to a survey on the hearing loss in osteogenesis imperfecta, more than 50 percent of people who have osteogenesis imperfecta have hearing loss. Osteogenesis imperfecta(OI), most common heritable disorder of the bone associated with increased joint bone mobility, minor injury, and deafness.
Yes, osteogenesis imperfecta lead to hearing impairment but not every person who has OI develops a loss of hearing. The incidence of OI is much higher than in the general population.
In OI sometimes the cause is unknown. Sometimes is due to visible deformities in inner ear and ossicles may lead to deafness. It is important to how osteogenesis imperfecta leads to hearing loss.

Why hearing loss causes due to Osteogenesis
Imperfecta?
The reason why the hearing causes due to osteogenesis imperfecta is not definitely known. Patients suffering from OI have a greater chance of skull fracture which is associated with the hearing loss. Footplate fixation is one of the reasons for the conductive hearing loss in the OI.
