[Audiology] Hypothetical Question About Proteins and the Inner Ear

Hi:

Lets say a way was developed so that thermally-denatured proteins would
not coagulate, that thermal burns would not cause inflammatory
reactions, that the heat [that would cause protein denaturation] could
be specificaly targeted to only a certain region on the body. Lets also
say that this heat could be aimed so that it only affects proteins
w/out altering non-protein entities/

What symptoms would occur if the proteins in the inner hair cells of
the left cochlea were thermally-denatured w/out directly affecting any
cells other than the inner hair cells themselves?

Any assistance would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance,

Radium
