Introduction

Main research in our department has been otology and audiology. Recent technological development has been contributed to elucidate mechanisms of various inner ear disturbances. A representative investigation we are now focusing on is visualization of endolymphatic hydrops, which has recently become possible using 3T MRI with contrast agents. We have reported EH-related studies, which are cutting edge for the diagnosis of Meniere’s disease. Epidemiological investigation on idiopathic sudden deafness has been performed from the point of genetic polymorphism. Besides otological or audiological fields, the department has also put efforts into head and neck surgery and related investigations.

Research Projects

1. Investigation of mechanisms related to middle and inner disorders and therapy
 i) Epidemiological research
  As the member of Acute Profound Deafness Research Committee of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan, we have been investigated epidemiological surveys of hospitals and private clinics in Japan regarding idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss. We have independently studied hearing-loss related surveys from the point of genetic polymorphism.
 ii) Evaluation of inner ear on MRI
  Visualization of endolymphatic hydrops has become available using 3T MRI with contrast agents (Figure 1). We have investigated the existence of endolymphatic hydrop in various ear disorders. We evaluate breakdown of blood-labyrinth barrier, which could be a factor for predicting prognosis of inner ear disturbances (Figure 2). The evaluation is also available to avoid complications following surgeries for cholesteatomas with labyrinthine fistulae.
 iii) Evaluation of blood flow in the middle and inner ears
  We have measured blood flows in the middle or inner ear during ear surgeries, and evaluated disturbance and activity of ear disorders.
 iv) Evaluation of balance function
 v) Local application of drugs for inner ear diseases
  Intra-tympanic gentamycin treatment for Meniere’s disease or Intra-tympanic steroid treatment for acute sensorineural hearing loss are representative therapy of local application of drugs. We have evaluated efficacy of such therapy combining with movement of applied drugs into the inner ear.
