OBJECTIVE It is well known that exposure to noise can lead to hearing loss. Craniotomy drills have significant noise and vibration. Since a noise induced by the drill during craniotomy is thought to be one of the causes, we examined its effect on the sensorineural hearing in this study. METHODS Thirty-nine patients who had undergone craniotomy operations served as the basis for this study between Jul. 2007 and Dec. 2008. Standard pure-tone audiometry (PTA) and speech recognition thresholds… CONTINUE READING
