    The prognosis of sudden deafness depends on the time duration from the onset to the treatment. Otolaryngologists suggest that the prognosis is poorer if the treatment is started 9 days after the onset. We examined the effectiveness of stellate ganglion block (SGB) for sudden deafness according to the time differences of a start of SGB. Ninety-one patients scheduled to undergo SGB were divided into two groups : those who were receiving SGB within 8 days of onset, and those who were receiving SGB 9 days after the onset. Treatment was effective in 68.8 % of the 16 patients who underwent SGB within 8 days of the onset, and in 69.3% of the 75 patients who underwent SGB 9 days after the onset. There was no statistically significant difference between them. Furthermore, we divided the latter 75 patients into two groups : those who were receiving SGB within three weeks of the onset and three weeks after the onset. Treatment was effective in 76.9% of the patients who underwent SGB within 3 weeks of onset, and in 52.2% of the 23 patients who underwent SGB 3 weeks after onset. A statistically significant difference between them was found. We conclude that SGB should be performed within three weeks of the onset of sudden deafness.
