A New Cure with a Mixed Solution for the Treatment of Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Prospective Clinical Study

Oguz Guvenmez, Huseyin Keskin.

Abstract
Background: Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is commonly seen worldwide and affects the quality life of people. In this study, we aimed to decrease the degree of hearing the loss in patients with SNHL. We also wanted to reduce the treatment cost and duration of the disease.
Materials and Methods: Newly diagnosed 30 patients with sensorineural hearing loss were included in the study. We applied a new solution to all patients for treatment. Before and after the treatment, the patients were asked about tinnitus. Also, PTA (pure tone audiometry) and SDS (speech discrimination score) were performed to all patients. We compared pre and post-treatment audiological findings and tinnitus of the patients.
Results: Post-treatment PTA values of the patients' right and left ears were significantly lower than pre-treatment ones (p<0.05). Post-treatment SDS scores of the patients' right and left ears were higher than pre-treatment ones (p<0.05). The rate of patients with tinnitus was significantly lower after treatment (p<0.05). The results showed that the severity of SNHL and tinnitus decreased statistically and clinically after our treatment (p<0.05).
Conclusion: This new solution significantly indicates superior to other treatment approaches such as corticosteroids, hearing aids, or hyperbaric oxygen for treating SNHL.

Key words: Sensorineural hearing loss, treatment, tinnitus
