In this study, acoustic reflex and HB grading scale were estimated as predictors of facial palsy in neuroborreliosis.
The importance of time for the acoustic reflex level was compared by using ANOVA.
Results on the HB scale were recorded in two categories (1 = recovery, HB score 1; and >2 = no recovery, HB score >1), thus facilitating comparison with results of acoustic reflex recovery.
Comparable to the results of acoustic reflex recovery, the percentage of patients with HB score >1 decreased with time.
Spearman's correlation coefficient yielded significant and moderately high correlation of the time to recovery as defined by acoustic reflex and HB grading system (Rho=0.61; p<0.001).
Comparison of acoustic reflex and House-Brackmann grading system
Tests include tympanometry, acoustic reflex tests with up to 16 recordings per ear, ipsilateral and contralateral reflex decay, and an ipsilateral or contralateral latency test.
Among their topics are determining the type of hearing loss, assessing word recognition scores, evaluating acoustic reflexes, and basic to advanced audiograms.
There is new material on acoustic reflexes and masking concepts.
The standard investigation consisted of pure-tone and speech audiometry (using aural earphones), impedance audiometry (tympanometry and acoustic reflexes), and evaluation of the vestibular system with bithermal caloric testing.
The exclusion criteria were as follows: (i) presence of conductive hearing loss (air-bone gap >10dB) (e.g., middle ear effusion, otosclerosis, tympanic membrane perforation, etc.); (ii) tympanograms other than A or As according to Jerger's classification [17]; (iii) absent acoustic reflexes; and (iv) abnormal screening vestibular test results.
Tympanograms were type A bilaterally, and acoustic reflexes were absent bilaterally.
