OBJECTIVES Physiological studies with experimental models of endolymphatic hydrops in Meniere's disease demonstrate some pressure changes at the level of round and oval window. Interestingly, conductive type hearing loss was observed in some patients during Meniere episodes. A close auditory follow-up of these patients may provide a better understanding of(More)
