Abstract

While the origins of sudden sensorineural hearing loss remain unproven and treatment empirical, the most appropriate therapy remains a matter of controversy. In this paper we have analysed the current forms of treatment, i.e. diatrizoate meglumine, steroids and a vasodilator. The results suggest that although several related factors were shown to indicate a good prognosis regardless of the therapy, none of the currently available regimens produces consistently better results than the spontaneous recovery rate of 65% reported by Mattox & Simmons.1
