Purpose of Review: Aminoglycosides and corticosteroids are commonly used to treat Menière's disease. Intratympanic (IT) administration of these medications allows high inner ear concentrations without significant adverse systemic effects. As a direct result, IT therapy has grown in popularity. Recent studies have compared patient outcomes between IT aminoglycosides and corticosteroids. This review summarizes these findings. Recent Findings: Trials comparing IT corticosteroids to IT placebo or oral therapy have had conflicting results...

Vestibular schwannomas are mostly sporadic, neuroectodermal, benign tumors of the myelin-forming cells of the vestibulocochlear nerve. Typical initial symptoms of vestibular schwannomas often include unilateral hearing loss, tinnitus, vertigo, and headaches. As schwannomas characteristically show a slow growth rate and various symptoms, different therapeutic approaches are possible, ranging from a watchful waiting strategy to radiation therapy and neurosurgical tumor removal. In addition, these treatment options should be evaluated carefully and assigned individually to the patients' needs and symptoms while respecting the feasibility and possible outcome of the chosen treatment...

The jugular bulb is a venous structure linking the sigmoid sinus with the internal jugular vein. Jugular diverticulum is a rare condition characterized by extraluminal outpouching from the jugular bulb. As the patients may be totally asymptomatic, but sensorineural symptoms such as sensorineural hearing loss, tinnitus and vertigo can also occur. Diagnosis of these patients can be made by some radiologic methods such as high-resolution computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or a novel radiologic technique flat panel computed tomography...
