Journal/Book: Presse Medica. 1986; 15: 1559-1561.
Abstract: Ischemia and the metabolic disorder it entails would seem to be the pathogenic mechanism behind acute cochlear deafness, irrespective of the trigge-ring process.The prognosis is entirely dependent an the rapid initiation of an effective treatment. At the end of a double-blind therapeutic trial comparing Ginkgo biloba extract and a standard alpha blocker (nicergo-line), a significant recovery was observed in both the-rapeutic groups, but improvement was distinctly bet-ter in the Ginkgo biloba group.
