The therapeutic effect of vitamins A and E in neurosensory hearing loss.

Abstract

After an anatomical and physiological outline of the organ of Corti, the pathology of the cochlea related to the sensorineural deafness is described. The role of Vitamin A on cochlear function and the effects of Vitamin E in man are then emphasized, on the base of some experimental results. Clinical and therapeutic efficacy of the combination of Vitamin A + E is shown by a number of papers, pointing out a 5-15 decibel improvement of the pure-tone threshold in patients with sensorineural hearing-loss particularly when the auditory troubles are due to presbyaccusis.
