Fluctuating hearing loss and vertigo are the typical presentations of Meniere's disease. However, it is unusual that fluctuating hearing loss and vertigo are caused by vertebral artery occlusion or cerebral infarction. Here, we described the case of a 54-year-old male patient with hypertension and diabetes mellitus who presented with fluctuating hearing loss in his left ear and severe whirling-type dizziness without associated neurological signs or symptoms. Temporal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was normal...

Allergy is commonly associated with conditions such as rhinitis, sinusitis, and asthma, but the relationship between allergy and otologic diseases is less clear. This article examines the evidence for a relationship between allergic disease and several common otologic conditions, including otitis media with effusion, eosinophilic otitis media, and Ménière's disease.

HYPOTHESIS: A vasopressin-induced endoymphatic hydrops model can represent an acute vertiginous attack in Menière's disease (MD). BACKGROUND: Previous animal models are not appropriate to evaluate the efficacy of new treatments for hydrops because they cannot represent an acute attack of MD. Recently, a new dynamic model was introduced for acute hydrops exacerbation using the vasopressin type 2 receptor agonist, desmopressin (1-deamino-8-D-Arginine vasopressin, VP); however, resulting changes in vestibular function have not been investigated...

Imaging of middle-ear cholesteatoma with diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and inner-ear endolymphatic hydrops (in Ménière's disease) with post-gadolinium high-resolution MRI, are reviewed. DWI MRI provides for a more specific diagnosis of tympano-mastoid cholesteatoma. There is an established and increasing role of DWI MRI in detecting both primary and postoperative cholesteatoma, localising disease, and planning surgery. The contemporary diagnostic accuracy of DWI is reviewed, pitfalls in interpretation are described, and potential future developments are highlighted...

Clinton G Lauritsen, Michael J Marmura
Vestibular migraine (VM) is a disorder with a spectrum of clinical presentations and among the most common causes of chronic vestibular symptoms. Some present with attacks before or during typical migraine, but many others have fluctuating or daily symptoms. While the symptoms and pathogenesis of vestibular migraine may have elements of both central and peripheral disorders, hearing loss should be absent. VM typically worsens with activity and head movements in general, and encompasses symptoms of vertigo, disequilibrium, or imbalance...

Most patients with suspicion of hydrops do not have access to MRI with 3D reconstruction of the endolymphatic space. Our main objective was to show that measurements of the saccule on a non-enhanced 3D-T2 MRI could show hydrops and help diagnose Menière disease. We conducted a prospective study from 2015 to 2016 to compare consecutive patients consulting for Menière's disease to a control group (patients with unilateral non-hydrops disorders and contralateral healthy ears). They all received full auditory and vestibular testing...

Aim of this work is to establish evaluation criteria for identifying endolymphatic hydrops in the vestibule and cochlea using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. This is a retrospective diagnostic study. We evaluated 70 ears of 35 unilateral Ménière's disease patients. We performed 3-T MRI 4 h after intravenous gadolinium injection. Otologists manually traced the outline of vestibule, cochlea, and endolymphatic space of the vestibule and cochlea on two-dimensional fluid-attenuated inversion-recovery (2D-FLAIR) images...

INTRODUCTION: Vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) can be abnormal in patients with idiopathic recurrent spontaneous vertigo. We aimed to determine whether abnormal cervical vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMPs) can predict evolution of isolated recurrent vertigo into Meniere's disease (MD). METHODS: We had followed up 146 patients with isolated recurrent vertigo and an evaluation of cVEMPs for 0-142 months [median = 6, interquartile range (IQR) = 0-29] at the Dizziness Clinic of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital from June 2003 to May 2014...

OBJECTIVE: To study comorbidities and their effect on the disease progression in Meniere's disease (MD). METHODS: Retrospective study on 350 definite MD patients diagnosed according to AAO-HNS 1995 criteria using hospital records and postal questionnaire.

Ménière's disease (MD) is a condition that has been proposed over 150 years ago, which involves audiological and vestibular manifestations, such as aural fullness, tinnitus, vertigo, and fluctuating hearing thresholds. Over the past few years, many researchers have assessed different techniques to help diagnose this pathology. Vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) is an electrophysiological method assessing the saccule (cVEMP) and the utricule (oVEMP). Its clinical utility in the diagnosis of multiple pathologies, such as superior canal dehiscence, has made this tool a common method used in otologic clinics...

OBJECTIVES: The normal process of aging is mostly associated with global decline in almost all sensory aspects of the human body. While aging affects the 500-Hz tone burst-evoked ocular vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMPs) by reducing the amplitudes and prolonging the latencies, its interaction with oVEMP responses at other frequencies has not been studied. Therefore, the present study aimed at investigating the impact of advancing age on the frequency tuning of oVEMP. DESIGN: Using a cross-sectional research design, oVEMPs were recorded for tone burst frequencies of 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, and 2000 Hz from 270 healthy individuals divided into six age groups (10-20, 20-30, 30-40, 40-50, 50-60, and >60 years)...

AIMS: Betahistine is a histamine analogue that is used for the treatment of Menière's disease. Animal studies showed that it increases local blood flow in the stria vascularis. In terms of its mode of action, recent studies have prompted discussion of whether betahistine actively affects cochlear microcirculation by dilations of pericytes or of precapillary arterioles or by mere downstream effects. Hence, we investigated the effects of betahistine on cochlear capillary pericytes and precapillary arterioles...

The diagnosis of Meniere's disease (MD) and vestibular migraine (VM) is primarily based on clinical criteria and their differentiation is often difficult. Currently, there are no known definitive diagnostic tests that can reliably distinguish the two conditions. Patients with MD and patients with VM are treated differently, therefore improving the diagnosis of these two pathologies should avoid errors in management. A systematic review was conducted according to PRISMA guidelines. Medline-Ovid and Embase databases were used to conduct a thorough search of English-language publications dating from 1948 to March 2016...

This paper presents diagnostic criteria for Menière's disease jointly formulated by the Classification Committee of the Bárány Society, The Japan Society for Equilibrium Research, the European Academy of Otology and Neurotology (EAONO), the Equilibrium Committee of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) and the Korean Balance Society. The classification includes two categories: definite Menière's disease and probable Menière's disease. The diagnosis of definite Menière's disease is based on clinical criteria and requires the observation of an episodic vertigo syndrome associated with low- to medium-frequency sensorineural hearing loss and fluctuating aural symptoms (hearing, tinnitus and/or fullness) in the affected ear...

Electrocochleography (ECochG) has been used to assess Ménière's disease, a pathology associated with endolymphatic hydrops and low-frequency sensorineural hearing loss. However, the current ECochG techniques are limited for use at high-frequencies only (≥1 kHz) and cannot be used to assess and understand the low-frequency sensorineural hearing loss in ears with Ménière's disease. In the current study, we use a relatively new ECochG technique to make measurements that originate from afferent auditory nerve fibers in the apical half of the cochlear spiral to assess effects of endolymphatic hydrops in guinea pig ears...
