Abstract

We often see patients with low-tone sensorineural hearing loss who complain more of a sense of ear fullness than of hearing loss. The cause has not yet been identified but endolymphatic hydrops seems to be the most probable etiology. We studied the effectiveness of therapy of low-tone sensorineural hearing loss.<br>The disease frequently occurs in women aged 20 to 50. The therapeutic success rate is high (71%) and the average until remission is 5.8 days ; the longest was 22 days. But the rate of recurrence was as high as (40.2%). We gave patients various drugs and performed stellate ganglion block. No significant difference was found among the drugs or between drug therapy and stellate ganglion block.<br>We used transtympanic injection of steroid to treat patients with recurrence or intractable disease. Such therapy (steroid targetting therapy) had some effect.
