To investigate the relation of sudden deafness with hearing loss level and auditory threshold



To investigate the relation of sudden deafness with hearing loss level and auditory threshold



Lin Chuang Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi 21(10): 453-454



To investigate the relation of sudden deafness with hearing loss level and auditory threshold. A retrospective analysis was performed in 92 cases(97 years) of sudden deafness patients. In this group,the best hearing loss prognosis was the ascend type and the back type the total effective rate was both 100.0%. The second was the slow descend type. The total effective rate of this type was 70.0% (7/10). the total effective rate of full deaf is 66.7% (14/21), the sudden descend type is poor, the effective rate was 50% (4/8). although the full deaf groups total effective rate was high than sudden descend type, without one ear completely recovering, and only one ear from sudden descend type was completely cured. After treatment, there were 6 ears of fall deaf in full deaf group. There was one case rised 65 dBHL and one case rised 50 dBHL from the 21 cases full deaf sufferer. In this deaf level group, the light level and the middle level was one ear respectively. Although the total effective rate of this group was the highest, all the cases were not completely recovered. After treatment, the hearing rise 17 dBHL and 19 dBHL respectively. After chi2 text (chi2 = 1.459, P > 0.05), the total effective rate of the more heavier, heavy, and the heaviest to full deaf was no significant difference but after chi2 text (chi2 = 10.09, P < 0.01), the full recover rate was significant difference. The more heavier level group's full recover rate was the highest 38.5% (10/26).the second was heavy level group ,the full recover rate is 33.3% (12/36), the worst level to full deaf group was the lowest: 6.0% (2/33). It was considered that the deafness level was no obvious relation to the total effective rate, but there was significant difference in fully recover rate. The different auditory threshold figure of the sudden deafness was closely related to the hearings prognosis.
