With use of intratympanic gentamicin as a treatment protocol, only 12.5% of the patients treated with gentamicin showed a further hearing loss audiometrically whereas the control group showed no hearing loss (Table 4).
(17) These criteria were two or more definitive spontaneous episodes of vertigo [greater than or equal to] 20 m inutes in duration; audiometrically documented hearing loss on at least one occasion; tinnitus or aural fullness in the treated ear; and exclusion of other causes such as otosyphilis or acoustic neuroma.
On the other hand, the presence of a large purely cisternal vestibular schwannoma may be audiometrically asymptomatic for extended periods of time.
