Objective: The use of Mesna as a chemical dissector in higher concentrations may reduce the length of time of operation by providing more effective dissection as well as being used in otologic pathologies such as tympanosclerosis. In this study, it was aimed to assess the effect of Mesna on the internal ear, which was applied intra-tympanically in higher concentrations than the conventional use. Methods: Twenty-four female rats were included in our study. The rats were randomly divided into three groups (Group 1: Mesna 50%, Group 2: Mesna 100%, Group 3: Saline). At the beginning of the study, DPOAE and ABR measurements were carried out on every rat on days 7 and 14. At the end of the study, cochleas of the rats were excised and histopathological assessments were carried out. Results: Basal values and DPOAE and ABR values on day 7 and 14 of Group 1, Group 2, and Group 3 were similar to each other. No significant difference was detected among the three groups in the histopathological assessment carried out at the end of the study. Conclusion: It was revealed by audiological and histopathological parameters that the use of Mesna at 50% and 100% concentrations did not create toxicity effects on the internal ear. Mesna would be more effective by being used in higher concentrations in audiological surgeries, that its duration of operation world reduce and could being used in different indications including tympanosclerosis.
