Abstract

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss can occur after both otolaryngological and non otolaryngological procedures. Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is a well-recognized phenomenon that is attributed to a variety of etiologies. After cardiopulmonary bypass surgery has been well reported. But this report adds to the literature additional case of sudden permanent bilateral SNHL after acute non-otology, non-cardiopulmonary, non-spine surgery. Possible etiologic factors and the management of sensorineural hearing loss following anesthesia are discussed.
