High-frequency audiometric monitoring strategies for early detection of ototoxicity.

Abstract

Therapeutic drugs such as the aminoglycoside antibiotics (AMG) and the chemotherapy agent cisplatin (CDDP) are known to cause irreversible hearing loss, typically affecting highest frequency hearing first with progression of loss to the lower frequency regions. Conventional (0.25-8 kHz) and high-frequency (9-20 kHz) serial hearing threshold monitoring was… (More)
