Glycerol and urea are used as test agents in confirming the diagnosis of endolymphatic hydrops. Although both substances act as osmotic diuretics, recent evidence suggests that they may have differing physiologic effects on the inner ear. This study was designed to compare the morphologic effects of urea and glycerol on cochlear tissues, using the… CONTINUE READING
