Is Sudden Hearing Loss Associated with Increased Risk of Atherosclerosis?

Abstract

Is Sudden Hearing Loss Associated with Increased Risk of Atherosclerosis?

Sudden sensorineural hearing-loss (SSNHL) patients constitute approximately 2–3% of referrals to ear, nose and throat (ENT) clinics. Several predisposing factors have been proposed for this condition; one of which is vascular disorders and perfusion compromise. In this research the atherosclerotic changes and their known risk factors are studied in SSNHL patients.

Keywords: Sudden sensorineural hearing loss; Atherosclerosis risk factors; Carotid Doppler; High-sensitivity C-reactive protein
