Abstract

Ninety-four patients with sudden deafness were treated with high dose ATP or/and steroids. Complete recovery was obtained in 44% of patients, definite improvement in 11%, slight improvement in 12%, and no improvement in 33%. Important prognostic factors were time between the onset and the beginning of initial treatment, age, configuration of the initial audiogram, severity of the initial hearing loss, and vertigo. No significant difference in curative effect was noted between these two methods, high dose ATP together with steroid, and high dose ATP alone. Furthermore, a curative effect in the first week was closely related to recovery. In conclusion, we suggest that if the curative effect in the first week is not in sufficient, it is important to select another method.
