Research was performed to determine whether stapedectomized patients are more susceptible to continuous noise induced temporary threshold shifts than are normal persons. Stapedectomized persons did not exhibit greater susceptibility to noise induced TTS than did a normal group. Additional research is necessary before a rm conclusion can be reached that the stapedectomy procedure does not enhance the susceptibility of those undergoing it to acoustic insult.
