Ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMP) represent extraocular muscle activity in response to vestibular stimulation. To specify the value of oVEMP in the diagnostics of Menière's disease, the amplitude ratio between 500 and 1000 Hz stimuli was investigated. Thirty-nine patients with certain Menière's disease, i.e. definite Menière's disease(More)
Conditions experienced during early life can have profound effects on individual development and condition in adulthood. Differences in nutritional provisioning in birds during the first month of life can lead to differences in growth, reproductive success and survival. Yet, under natural conditions shorter periods of nutritional stress will be more(More)
Palatal myoclonus (PM) is a rare neurotological disorder but is being reported with increasing frequency. Two forms, symptomatic and essential PM, have been identified as separate clinical entities and probably also have separate etiologies. In essential PM, brain imaging is unremarkable and a clicking noise caused by peritubal muscle contractions and often(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse the correlation between visual fixation suppression test results and the occurrence of post-operative vertigo in patients receiving a cochlear implant, and to compare this with other possible risk factors. METHODS In a prospective study setting, caloric vestibular responses, visual fixation suppression and subjective vertigo symptoms(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this clinical study was to investigate the history and clinical findings in 10 patients having an essential palatal tremor. Furthermore, a botulinum toxin A (BTA) therapy in 5 cases was carried out, and the outcome was analyzed. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven adult and 3 pediatric patients with essential palatal tremor were examined(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the correlation between the degree of endolymphatic hydrops as detected in vivo by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and the auditory and vestibular function in patients with definite Ménière's disease. STUDY DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING Tertiary referral center for balance disorders. SUBJECTS AND METHODS In this(More)
Our objective is to determine whether the degree of endolymphatic hydrops as it is detected in vivo in patients with definite Meniere's disease correlates with audiovestibular function. In this prospective study, 37 patients with definite Meniere's disease according to AAO-HNS criteria were included. Intratympanic contrast enhanced temporal bone MRI was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the clinical history and the findings in audiovestibular function tests in patients suffering from intralabyrinthine schwannoma or delayed endolymphatic hydrops (DEH). PATIENTS AND METHODS Five patients diagnosed with intralabyrinthine schwannoma by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and five patients(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the clinical history and audiovestibular function test results of patients suffering from intralabyrinthine schwannoma or delayed endolymphatic hydrops (DEH). Five patients diagnosed with intralabyrinthine schwannoma by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and five patients diagnosed with DEH by locally enhanced inner ear(More)
The squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal vestibule (SCCNV) is a comparatively rare malignant disease. It occurs in the transition zone at the limen nasi. The choice of treatment for small tumors is a matter of controversy. Due to better cosmetic results, radiation therapy is usually recommended, however some recent reports have suggested that early stage(More)
