Sudden sensorineural hearing loss


Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL), commonly known as sudden deafness, occurs as an unexplained, rapid loss of hearing –usually in one ear– either suddenly or over several days. We treat more than 80 patients with this disease each year. Patients with severe hearing loss are hospitalized and treated with intravenous prednisolone tapering from 120mg, low-molecular dextran, Vitamin B12, ATP and glycerin. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is also used for our patients.
