The canalith repositioning procedure has recently gained controversial recognition as a treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Some authors contend that the canalith repositioning maneuver is no more effective than no treatment at all. Unfortunately, its technique has not been uniformly applied and its outcomes have not been uniformly assessed.(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether transtympanic steroid administration may be an effective treatment for sudden onset sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) in patients for whom systemic steroid treatment has failed or who were not candidates for systemic steroids. METHODS The standard medical regimen for SSNHL usually involves systemic steroid therapy.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the radiologic appearance of endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Four patients with ELST underwent computed tomography (CT), and two of the four also underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Their radiologic studies were reviewed for characteristic findings of ELST. RESULTS Retrolabyrinthine bone destruction was(More)
The emerging concept that aggressive adenomatous tumors of the temporal bone arise from the endolymphatic sac and constitute a distinct clinicopathologic entity merits wider recognition. These tumors share a common clinical pattern and exhibit consistent imaging and histopathologic features. Endolymphatic sac tumors (ELSTs) have been mistaken for other(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether rotating a patient 360 degrees in the plane of the posterior semicircular canal is effective in treating classic benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. The study also compares the features of the Epley maneuver and the Semont maneuver and correlates them to the 360-degree maneuver. STUDY DESIGN A(More)
The authors have used a modified retrosigmoid (suboccipital) approach for removal of acoustic tumors in selected patients who have good preoperative hearing and whose tumor does not reach the brain stem or extend to the lateral third of the internal auditory canal. This report presents the surgical technique and results for 15 acoustic neuromas removed by(More)
