Evaluation of the hearing loss associated with cis-platinum treatment by high-frequency audiometry.

The effect of cis-platinum treatment on the hearing of 23 ovarian cancer patients was evaluated using standard and high-frequency audiometry. Twenty-two percent of the patients developed a hearing loss of at least 15 db, 13% in the range 125-8000 Hz and 9% only in the high-frequency area above 8 kHz. However, due to the high-frequency hearing loss (presbyacusis) in older patients high-frequency audiometry was often unobtainable. Hearing screening using standard pure-tone audiometry is recommended for cis-platinum patients as a routine procedure.[1]
