26 Possible Causes for Rinne's Test Positive

  • Impacted Cerumen

    Abstract The incidence of occlusion of the external auditory canal due to impacted cerumen was determined for 44 mentally retarded subjects in comparison with 44 nonretarded subjects. Otoscopic data were taken by qualified personnel for both groups and subjected to statistical analysis. Results confirmed that[…][]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    Acute otitis media (AOM) is the inflammation of the middle ear secondary to viral or bacterial infection. This disease is more prevalent in young children, especially those with risk factors. It is diagnosed based on the clinical presentation, history, physical exam including otoscopy, and appropriate testing when[…][]

  • Malignant Otitis Media

    This is referred to as a positive Rinne’s test Formal hearing test by an audiologist Treatment Prevention Avoid excessive noise Quit smoking Don’t put things like q-tips in[] This is referred to as a negative Rinne’s test Sensorineural Weber test – Louder in unaffected ear Rinne test – The sound will be louder off the mastoid with air conduction[] Rinne test – Place the tuning fork on the mastoid process and then remove it and place it next to the ear.[]

  • Middle Ear Cholesteatoma

    AIM: The aim of this study is to gain insight into the disease progression and behavior of primary cholesteatoma in a cohort of patients who did not have surgery using non-echoplanar diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW MRI) serial monitoring. METHODS: Retrospective longitudinal observational study of[…][]

  • Conductive Hearing Loss

    […] is termed as a 'positive Rinne', and an abnormal test is termed 'negative' Audiogram: Pure-tone audiometry which tests hearing threshold (dB) for different frequencies (Hz[] With a one-sided conductive component the combined use of both the Weber and Rinne tests is useful.[] […] bone (bone conduction) and then in front of the patient's ear (air conduction) Normal or SNHL: air conduction bone conduction CHL: bone conduction air conduction A normal test[]

  • Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media

    Test has changed from negative to positive.[] Zinc sulphate supplement, ciprofloxacin Primary outcome measure Healing of the tympanic membrane at 42 days with no evidence of perforation on otoscopy, tympanometry or the Rinne[]

  • Serous Otitis Media

    Abstract In this pilot study, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), a nontoxic inert gas infused into the ear during myringotomy and acting as a gas cushion behind an intact eardrum, was tested on five children with bilateral serous otitis media. The contralateral ear was treated with air as a control. A significant difference[…][]

  • Tympanic Membrane Perforation

    OBJECTIVE: Identify associated clinical factors and characterize the various forms of hearing loss in the context of blast-related traumatic tympanic membrane (TM) perforation sustained in the combat setting. METHODS: A prospective study of 41 patients who sustained a TM perforation secondary to blast injury[…][]

  • Chronic Serous Otitis Media

    Chronic serous otitis media is a common problem in the daily routine of the otorhinolaryngologist. In the majority of cases, the cause is related to dysfunction of the eustachian tube due to viral or bacterial rhinitis and occasionally to nasopharyngeal tumors. We report a case of a patient presenting with chronic[…][]
