For example, the audiogram on the left depicts a symmetrical hearing loss and the audiogram on the right depicts an assymetrical hearing loss. Two days later, still with a significant hearing loss in that ear, he decided to see a specialist, Dr. Maschka wasn't sure what caused the hearing loss, Rolander says, but told him it was probably a viral infection.
The good news is that treatment with an oral steroid such as Rolander received makes the prognosis better.
His practice follows the evidence-based guidelines of the American Academy of Otolaryngology.
The bad news for those suffering sudden hearing loss is that one in five patients, or 20 percent, do not get better, meaning that the hearing loss could be permanent.
In the event that the patient does not get better, Maschka recommends an MRI to make sure there's not a growth on the hearing nerve. Maschka says that if a person experiences ear fullness, particularly if it's just in one ear, it's good to get a hearing test.

Unilateral means hearing loss in one ear, with normal hearing sensitvity in the other ear.
When that got no results, he went to see his physician's assistant, who prescribed Prednizone, a steroid that can relieve inflammation. The doctor prescribed an oral steroid course that Rolander characterized as a little more aggressive than the first he received.
Only about 10 percent of that subset of patients without a hearing improvement will have a growth on the nerve, he says. In this context we are sharing our experience of drastic improvement in Sudden SNHL in a patient in whom oral and parenteral steroids were contraindicated due to existing diseases.
Intratympanic versus intravenous delivery of dexamethasone and dexamethasone sodium phosphate to cochlear perilymph.
Corticosteoid pharmacokinetics in the inner ear fluids: An animal study followed by clinical application.
Side effects can include a hole in the ear drum and drainage, but, he says, the injection is pretty safe.
After a thorough Ear, Nose, and Throat examination, including tuning fork tests, a Pure Tone Audiometry was done and a diagnosis of bilateral sensorineural hearing loss was made.
On further questioning, she gave a history of hearing loss in the left ear, which started at the birth of her first child, when she was 23 years old. She was given a transtympanic injection of Dexamethasone 1 cc (4 mg) on the right side on day one and 1 cc of the same in the left ear after 48 hours.She felt a significant improvement in terms of hearing and tinnitus in the right ear and a moderate change in the left ear three days after the injection in the left ear.


Two more doses of the same were given into the right ear at three-day intervals, after the first injection. Pure tone audiometry (PTA) was done again after three weeks and eight weeks, which showed significant improvement in hearing in the right ear. Salt and colleagues have proposed that, [1] clearance of the medicine from the middle ear, [2] permeability of the round window, and [3] diffusion across the inner ear are the local factors that determine the delivery of the drug to the inner ear.
The patient is asked to lie in a supine position with the head turned to the opposite side for one hour. The rationale for use of steroids by the tyranstympanic route as a primary approach was a requirement for higher concentrations, with the avoidance of systemic complications and the perceived need to start TT therapy as soon as possible.
However, the use of dexamethasone by injecting with a tuberculin syringe was found to be better, because it is easy to store (more stable) and does not burn like methyl prednisolone. Moreover, dexamethasone achieves a greater cochlear fluid concentration [3] if given by the transtympanic approach, without the associated side effects when given by oral or injection routes.
We hope that this method will benefit many patients in the long run, while formulating the best medicine, the best dosing regimen, and the end point of therapy while being applied to many more diseases in the course of time.
