Inner ear pressure reflects intracranial pressure (ICP) primarily because of the direct communication of perilymph and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the cochlear aqueduct (CA). The MMS-10 tympanic displacement analyser (TDA) is a relatively new device for measuring perilymphatic pressure non-invasively, and thereby also indirectly measuring intracranial(More)
Audiological tests were conducted on 34 patients before and after undergoing an operation under spinal anesthesia. One of these patients developed a considerable unilateral hearing loss in the low-frequency range, which persisted until an epidural blood-patch was given. Unexpectedly, we also found a general small significant threshold shift at 500 Hz, which(More)
In a prospective study, 60 patients who underwent surgery for unilateral acoustic neuromas had the hearing on the contralateral ear tested before and several times after surgery. In 40 patients, a threshold increase was found during the following 9 days. The changes were greatest in the low frequencies immediately after surgery, but after 1 week the treble(More)
Hearing loss has been reported following leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The etiology has been attributed to an induced imbalance in the intracochlear hydrodynamics. The present study reports a guinea pig model with surgically induced loss of CSF. In 18 anesthetized animals, CSF was drained by a suboccipital incision in the dura: Eighteen animals were(More)
Craniotomy with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) suction was performed on 18 guinea pigs to determine the effects on the inner ear morphology. Six control animals received anaesthesia only and 12 were operated on with a postoperative survival time of 1 or 24 h. The histologic examinations showed no signs of endolymphatic hydrops or injury to other structures in(More)
Audiological tests were conducted on 34 patients before and after undergoing an operation in spinal anaesthesia. One of these patients developed a considerable unilateral hearing loss in the low-frequency range, which persisted until an epidural blood-patch was given. Unexpectedly, we also found a general small but significant threshold shift at 500 Hz,(More)
