MATERIALS and METHODS: Twenty-six Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups: Group I (Control), group II (Intratympanic dexamethasone; ITD), group III (Intratympanic gentamicin; ITG), and group IV (Intratympanic gentamicin and dexamethasone; ITGD).
Further studies using a combination of different concentrations of gentamicin and dexamethasone are needed.
