Efficacy of defibrinogenation and steroid therapies on sudden deafness



Efficacy of defibrinogenation and steroid therapies on sudden deafness



Archives of Otolaryngology--Head & Neck Surgery 114(6): 649-652



Effects of defibrinogenation therapy and steroid therapy for sudden deafness were compared by paired double-blind testing. The average hearing recovery for five frequencies (250 to 4000 Hz) was more than 30 dB; overall improvement rate was 57.3% (47/82) for the patients assigned to defibrinogenation therapy and 38.7% (31/80) for the patients assigned to steroid therapy. Thus, the former treatment resulted in significantly better hearing recovery.
