    Hearing Loss after Continuous or Single-shot Spinal Anesthesia.


    Reg Anesth 22: 539-542, 1997.

      


    Transient hearing loss may occur (as high as 93% reported) after spinal anaesthesia that used a 22 gauge needle. This is probably due to decrease in CSF pressure which is transmitted to endocochlear lymph. The intercommunication between perilymph and spinal fluid may occur both at the level of the modiolus and at the level of the cochlear aqueduct.
