The optimal criterion for registering the result of a sudden-deafness-therapy is a class interval of 25 dB in the audiogram, followed by punctal evaluation of the mean value of the frequencies 0,5/1/2/4/8 kc/sec. Blocking of the sympathetic trunk, as well as infusions using low-molecular dextranes or derivatives of nicotnic acid, furthermore strictly oral(More)
