Fluid dynamics in sudden sensorineural hearing loss.

A change in fluid pressure in one intracochlear compartment also causes a pressure gradient in the other. Thus, one membrane break is likely to cause a secondary break. We have presented indirect evidence for such double membrane breaks in sudden hearing loss, and argue that one of the two breaks can heal spontaneously while the other remains active.
