Steroid treatment in sudden idiopathic neural deafness? Experimental research



Steroid treatment in sudden idiopathic neural deafness? Experimental research



Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology 222(1): 29-34



For the recording of action potential in the auditory nerve 2 different methods of preparation were used to reach the auditory nerve of experimental animals [guinea pigs]. This difference in preparation also produced a difference in signal output during hypoxygenation experiments. In the one method a solitary P1 peak, the approaching-wave, was recorded from the cochlear nerve during the hypoxygenation, whereas in the other method this solitary P1 was never seen. An explanation for this phenomenon is formulated. At the same time the analogy of the sudden deafness caused by affections of the cochlear nerve is compared with Bell's palsy. Results proving steroids effective in treating patients with a sudden idiopathic neural deafness are presented.
