For younger people with good hearing, vestibular nerve section is a reasonable choice. Am J Otolaryngol 3: Autoimmune inner ear disease is also associated with bilateral fluctuating hearing loss and vertigo.

Densert B, Densert O.

Indications for surgical treatment are variable, and choice of which treatment to use is nonstandard. Hallpike C, Cairns H. Although some patients report increased enferrmedad following salt ingestion, many do not.

Vestibular nerve section controls vertigo with minimal risk of hearing loss. Basilar migraine is a common imitator Baloh, The procedures are discussed in order of increasing invasiveness and complexity. Use of endolymphatic surgery continues. As fisiopaatologia be discussed next, determining effectiveness in a disorder that is variable and unpredictable is difficult at best and impossible without the use of controls.


Int Tinnitus J, 3pp. The function of the endolymphatic sac is not fully understood. The long-term treatment results are generally acceptable for the majority of cases, but the indications for, and methods of, medical and surgical therapy vary widely. These are generally regarded as stressors rather than etiologic agents. Am J Otol, 19 fe, pp.

The mechanism whereby hydrops produces symptoms is controversial Gibson and Arenberg, As with most studies, subjects are recruited during an active stage of the disorder.

Such therapy is not approved by the U. Radiographic examinations may show an abnormal vestibular aqueduct in the affected ear Yazawa and Kitahara, The evidence of effectiveness of diuretic therapy is based on studies from the s that have not been replicated with modern methods. Taken at arms length, the results of all of these procedures is similar.

Intratympanic Gentamicin O v e r t h e p a s t d e c a d e, ch e m i c a l labyrinthectomy has become increasingly used because of low cost and low risk Pender, Statisticians refer to this phenomenon as regression to the mean.

Klockhoff and colleagues Klockhoff et al compared the effect of hydrochlorthiazide versus placebo in 26 patients using a double-blind crossover trial.

Later they acknowledged the nonspecific effect of general anesthesia and surgical manipulation of the temporal bone upon the endolymphatic system. Meniett Therapy Some people with MD note temporary improvement in symptoms when traveling to higher elevations or with weather changes.

Yazawa Y, Kitahara M. The increased volume of endolymph is likely due to fluid overproduction; however, deficient absorptive mechanisms have also been considered. Even today, the merits of this study and its conclusions are discussed. It is not necessary to ablate all vestibular function to control symptoms.

Putative theories of etiology must take this fact into account.

We recently completed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled multicenter clinical trial of the Meniett device in 67 volunteer patients with classic unilateral cochleovestibular MD Gates et al,
