Blood viscosity in therapy of sudden deafness

Summary

Blood viscosity is of high importance for microcirculation of the inner ear. Diminution of blood viscosity by increased fluidity of erythrocytes and decreased hematocrit was studied in two clinical groups one treated by Pentoxifyllin per os and Dextraninfusions the other by Dextraninfusions only. Diminution of blood viscosity was significant more than the effect of hemodilution in the Dextran/Pentoxifyllin group. There was no similar effect in the Dextran group. This therapy was successful in 80% of the patients with sudden deafness.
