Is there a need for audiologic evaluation in patients with Behçet disease?

March 1, 2012  |  Saniye Cinar, MD, Fikret Cinar, MD, and Sibel Kiran, MD, PhD

Abstract. Behçet disease is known to be a multisystem condition. We conducted a study to determine the prevalence of hearing loss in patients with Behçet disease and to identify any associations between audiologic findings and other clinical manifestations and treatment. Our study group was made...

The role of ultrahigh-frequency audiometry in the early detection of systemic drug-induced hearing loss

May 1, 2011  |  Rajeev Singh Chauhan, MS, Ravinder Kumar Saxena, MS, and Saurabh Varshey, MS

Abstract

In monitoring patients for drug-induced hearing loss, most audiometric evaluations are limited to the range of frequencies from 0.25 to 8 kHz. However, such testing would fail to detect ototoxicity in patients who have already experienced hearing loss in the ultrahigh...

The effects of glutathione enhancement on sensorineural hearing loss

September 1, 2010  |  Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS, Therese Bittermann, MD, Linda Marks, RN, Deborah Lurie, PhD, and Mary Hawkshaw, BSN, RN, CORLN

Abstract

Previous research has demonstrated the benefits of anti-oxidant treatment in the prevention of hearing loss in animals. Our study tested the effects of an undenatured whey protein supplement rich in glutathione on human patients with hearing loss. Over an average of 36 months,...

How to eliminate air-bone gaps audiometrically: Use too much masking

May 1, 2008  |  Maurice H. Miller, PhD

Abstract

The excessive, indiscriminate use of masking during measurements of pure-tone bone-conduction thresholds can reduce or eliminate air-bone gaps. This may result in an abnormal, audiometrically induced bone-conduction threshold shift and suggest to the otologist the need for...
