  • OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Hearing loss can be associated with a decrease in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure because changes in CSF pressure induce changes in perilymph pressure. [...] Key MethodSTUDY DESIGN Prospective study. METHODS Pure tone threshold and electrocochleography were preoperatively performed in nine patients (18 ears) undergoing elective VP shunt placement. Five-day and 1-month post-shunt placement hearing thresholds were compared with baseline data.Expand Abstract
