Does Intratympanic Corticosteroid Help In Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss? (Otolaryngology (E.N.T))

Satyabrata Panigrahi., BASLP


Medical Case Details:

During the clinical practice, many cases came with SSNHL (Sudden Sensorineural Hearing loss). As a standardized protocol, intratympanic steroids are applied within 72 hours by qualified and experienced ENT doctors. When I compared the pre and post-treatment assessment in terms of audiometry, the results are insignificant in most cases. So, I am afraid if it practically really works? It will help if you give your inputs.

    Personally I have prescribed it in the past and it worked after 3 weeks.
