The object of this paper was to evaluate the binaural hearing in 20 patients suffering from unilateral otosclerosis. Binaural performance was assessed at a test frequency of 500 Hz using masking level difference (MLD) before and after surgery. The postsurgical results showed abnormal MLDs in patients in whom stapedotomy had successfully corrected the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a new physical maneuver in the treatment of the apogeotropic variant of horizontal canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. STUDY DESIGN Case review. SETTING Outpatient clinic. PATIENTS The diagnosis of apogeotropic horizontal canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo was(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The objective was to evaluate dizziness as the first symptom of endolymphatic hydrops, which could provide valuable information on the initial stages of endolymphatic hydrops development.

OBJECTIVES The diagnosis of vestibular neurolabyrinthitis is based on the sudden appearance of vertigo that lasts for hours or days without associated cochlear or central nervous system signs or symptoms. The advent of the video head impulse test, cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potential testing, and ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potential testing(More)
OBJECTIVES We analyzed the behavior of preoperative and postoperative vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) and vestibular evoked periocular potentials (VEPPs) in 3 patients who had vestibular schwannoma and underwent modified translabyrinthine surgery. METHODS We compared VEMPs and VEPPs, measured with both air-conducted (AC) and bone-conducted(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to present a case report demonstrating that vestibular evoked myogenic potentials originate from the saccular nerve. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case review. SETTING Tertiary referral center. INTERVENTION Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials are shown before and after operation in a patient with a surgically(More)
The object of the present paper was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of ABR using ipsilateral masking in patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. Fourteen patients were examined. Each patient with normal audiogram underwent two ABR recording sessions during a follow-up period of thirty months. The ABRs were recorded under two experimental conditions(More)
