    Abstract : Myringotomy plays an important role in otological therapy. The procedure requires an efficient anesthesia, which can be obtained without general anesthesia. However, the use of local anesthetics on the tympanic membrane (TM) has been abandoned in many places, as general anesthesia has been readily available. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cisplatin induced ototoxicity : Pharmacokinetics, prediction and prevention

    Author : Andreas Ekborn; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cisplatin; ototoxicity; pharmacokinetics; monohydrated complex of cisplatin; protection;

    Abstract : Cisplatin is an anticancer drug used against a number of malignancies e.g. testicular cancer, ovarian cancer and some paediatric malignancies. The main dose limiting side effects of cisplatin are oto- and neurotoxicity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cisplatin, a platinum-containing antineoplastic drug: perspectives on analytical chemistry and prevention of ototoxicity

    Author : Pernilla Videhult Pierre; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; cisplatin;

    Abstract : The platinum-containing drug cisplatin plays a key role in the curative and palliative treatment of many solid malignancies. Unfortunately, the treatment can lead to sensorineural hearing loss, which limits the use of the drug. READ MORE

  5. 5. Synaptic uncoupling in the mouse cochlea induced by noise or cisplatin and its clinical relevance

    Author : Evangelia Tserga; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The cochlea has an autonomous circadian clock that controls auditory function and increases vulnerability to noise trauma during the active phase. The mechanisms regulating the circadian control of the auditory system are poorly understood. READ MORE
