In Reply We thank Dr Wu and colleagues for their interest and comments on our research. Various factors may affect hearing recovery after SSHL, such as age, degree of hearing loss, type of hearing loss, interval from onset of symptoms to treatment, tinnitus, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and the presence of vertigo. We were unable to include the hearing level at onset into our analyses owing to the lack of corresponding data in the included studies. Moreover, only 1 of the included studies assessed the possible association between the presence of vertigo and hearing recovery in patients with severe sudden sensor...

ConclusionsCurrent therapeutic strategies have proven that the goal of the traditional oriental medicine principle of increasing bodily fluids is a relevant approach for reducing the development of hearing loss by improving microcirculation in the blood-labyrinth barrier and increasing cochlear blood flow. The potential benefits of TOM agents expand to a multi-target approach on different auditory structures of the inner ear related to increased cochlear blood flow, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and neuroprotective activities. TOM is proposed as an important source of drug discovery and well-controlled, do...

Abstract We performed a cluster analysis to classify the audiogram shape in patients with idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL). We also investigated whether the audiogram shape is a prognostic indicator in the management of ISSNHL. A total of 115 inpatients with ISSNHL treated between 2001 and 2010 were analyzed. The data collected included age, sex, duration of hearing loss at the time of treatment, and the presence or absence of tinnitus, vertigo, diabetes, nystagmus, and canal paresis. A hierarchical cluster analysis was performed using the hearing threshold for each frequency on audiograms as ...
