OBJECTIVE: Early prediction of therapeutic outcomes could reduce exposure to ineffective treatments and optimize clinical outcomes. However, none of the known otologic predictors is amenable to therapeutic intervention for idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL). The aims of this study were to investigate psychological stress as a potential predictor to discriminate outcomes in ISSNHL. METHODS: Various psychological measures were conducted including structured interview assessment tools in patients with recently diagnosed ISSNHL before initiating treatment...

Although recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques have contributed to the detection of tiny lesions in the internal auditory canal (IAC) that may be responsible for sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL), there have been relatively few studies on the clinical characteristics of intra-labyrinthine hemorrhage (ILH) and labyrinthitis versus those regarding IAC tumors. Our purpose was to investigate the frequency of those IAC lesions on MRI and their clinical characteristics. Initial MRIs of 200 patients with SSNHL (93 men, 107 women; mean age = 48...

Epstein-Barr virus-associated haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (EBV-HLH) is a life-threatening catastrophic and rarely seen complication of EBV infection especially in adults. While typical presentation of EBV infection is easily diagnosed as mononucleosis syndrome in teenagers and adults, some atypical clinical presentations may be challenged. We did not encounter any patient presenting with sudden sensorineural hearing loss associated with EBV infection in our English medical literature research (1966-2016)...

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO₂) therapy is used in the treatment of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL). Some patients, however, do not benefit from HBO₂ therapy despite several weeks of treatment. We hypothesized that early treatment response could predict treatment failure. We conducted a retrospective chart review and identified patients diagnosed with ISSNHL and recorded the pure tone average (PTA) levels prior to, after the first week and at completion of HBO₂ therapy. Early treatment response (ETR) was assessed after the first week of HBO₂ therapy, and an increase ⟨10 decibels (dB) in mean PTA level was defined as a negative ETR...

Idiopathic sensorineural hearing loss (ISNHL) is a hearing impairment that occurs suddenly with onset over a period of 24 to 72 hours, affecting at least three adjacent frequencies with hearing loss of 30 decibels or more, caused by damage to the inner ear or auditory nerve without clear reasons. The treatment of ISNHL is still a hot topic. In a retrospective study, we examined 88 patients with ISNHL (2008-2013). The objective of the study was to compare the effects of two different types of therapy: vasodilator infusion treatment combined with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO₂) therapy vs...

Introduction  Several authors have demonstrated the relationship between sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and systemic autoimmune diseases (SAD). Immune-mediated SNHL can rarely present as unilateral sudden SNHL and manifests itself in the contralateral ear only after years. It presents clinical relevance for being one of the few SNHL that may be reversible given that early and appropriate treatment is applied. Objective  The objective of this study is to describe the clinical presentations and audiological findings from patients with idiopathic sudden SNHL and SAD associated with a probable diagnosis of immune-mediated SNHL...

BACKROUND: Only few therapeutic options exist for patients with refractory sudden idiopathic sensorineural hearing loss (SISHL). Little is known about the efficacy of second-line therapies. Rheopheresis seems to be an effective therapeutic possibility. METHODS: Between 2012 and 2015, 106 patients with SISHL were enrolled in the study, of whom 52 were refractory to initial treatment. As salvage therapy, these patients were offered either 3 sessions of rheopheresis (33 pts) or intratympanic steroid treatment through MicroWick application (19 pts)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate procalcitonin and high sensitive c-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels in idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL) patients and assess their correlations with the clinical prognosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-three ISSNHL patients were included in the study (group A). The control group was consisted of 19 patients (group B). Procalcitonin and hs-CRP levels were compared between the groups. The relationship between procalcitonin and hs-CRP levels and the configuration of the audiogram, degree of hearing loss [partial or total (>90 dB)], and status of improvement (improvement of > 15 dB in the first month PTA) were evaluated...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is defined as acute hearing loss of the sensorineural type of at least 30 dB over 3 contiguous frequencies that occurs within a 72-hour period. Although many different causative factors have been proposed, sudden sensorineural hearing loss is still considered "idiopathic" in 71%-85% of cases, and treatments are empiric, not based on etiology. MR imaging implemented with a 3D FLAIR sequence has provided new insights into the etiology of sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Herein, we review the current management trends for patients with sudden sensorineural hearing loss, from the initial clinical diagnosis to therapeutic strategies and diagnostic work-up...

PURPOSE: Among the hearing loss patients, we can confirm that the hearing loss of the specific frequency decreases, such as the 2000Hz notch in otosclerosis and the 4000Hz notch (c5-dip) in noise-induced hearing loss. The 1000Hz notch (c3-dip), however, is rarely studied. We fortuitously encountered a group of patients with a 1kHz hearing loss and report it with a review of the literature. METHODS: Otological history, audiogram, diagnosis, occupation, and history of noise exposure were reviewed from charts and telephone interview, and compared between c3-dip and c5-dip patients (n=98)...
