Researchers have evaluated the associations between mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) 4977 bp deletion and presbycusis. This study aimed to assess the differences of mtDNA 4977 bp deletion between presbycusis patients and controls by conducting a meta-analysis of published studies. Databases, including PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), and Wanfang Data were searched to collect case-control studies on the correlation between mitochondrial DNA 4977 bp deletion and presbycusis. The research findings of related articles were collected according to the inclusion criteria. Pooled odds ratios (ORs) and corresponding confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated. Meanwhile, subgroup analysis was performed to examine the source of heterogeneity. Revman 5.3 and Stata 12.0 software were used for data synthesis. Eight English and Chinese studies were included in the meta-analysis, the results of which showed that mitochondrial DNA 4977 bp deletion could increase the risk of presbycusis (OR = 8.16, 95% CI: 3.51-18.99), and the difference was statistically significant (P <. 01). Analysis of the polled OR showed the incidence of mtDNA 4977 bp deletion was 8.50 times higher in Asians with presbycusis than in the control group. And the OR in the studies of occidentals was 7.24. Sample source analysis was also performed with the sample source divided by temporal bone source and other sources (hair and blood). The OR was 4.18 and 22.36 for the temporal bone and other sources, respectively. Mitochondrial DNA 4977 bp deletion could increase the risk of presbycusis.
