It is known that delayed endolymphatic hydrops (DEH) occurs in patients with unilateral and/or bilateral profound hearing loss. In the ipsilateral and bilateral types of DEH, no audiological tests can be performed on the affected ear because of profound deafness, although these tests can be done in the contralateral type. Electrocochleography (ECochG) was(More)
In order to detect endolymphatic hydrops, we applied three neuro-otologic examination methods, including the furosemide VOR test, the glycerol dehydration test, and electrocochleography in 61 patients with unilateral Menière's disease, 21 patients with delayed endolymphatic hydrops, and 10 patients with syphilitic labyrinthitis. The positive rate of the(More)
To elucidate the brain mechanisms to encode sequential events, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded during a sound-sequence discrimination task using young and middle-aged adult subjects. In the task, a series of six or 12 kinds of natural sounds were sequentially presented; 70-80% of the stimuli were presented in a fixed order (Non-target), but(More)
OBJECTIVE Among the types of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss, low-tone type without vertigo has attracted attention for its recurrence and progression to Ménière's disease. The purpose of this article is to characterize the recurrent type of sudden low-tone sensorineural hearing loss without vertigo using neuro-otologic examination. STUDY(More)
OBJECTIVE We used electronystagmography (ENG) to characterize recurrent hearing loss and its progression to definite Ménière's disease in patients with idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL) without subjective vertigo. METHODS We reviewed medical records of 1,334 patients with unilateral hearing loss initially diagnosed with idiopathic SSHL(More)
Auditory evoked responses in 21 cases with tinnitus were recorded before and after the administration of intravenous lidocaine. A dosage of 1 mg/kg body weight was diluted with 20% glucose (20 ml) and administered intravenously over a one-min period. The loudness of tinnitus was evaluated during electrocochleography (ECochG) or auditory brain-stem response(More)
In order to gain an early estimate of a prognosis for facial paralysis, the vertical eye movements associated with eyeblinks (Bell's phenomenon) in 39 patients with acute unilateral Bell's paralysis and Hunt's syndrome and of 21 normal subjects were recorded by electronystagmography. These data were then analysed with a small digital computer (PDP 11/34).(More)
In some previously reported cases, facial palsy, even in Bell's palsy, involved vestibular dysfunction. Vestibular dysfunction in facial palsy is considered to be due to a retro-labyrinthine disorder such as vestibular neuronitis or acoustic neuromas. For the past 9 years we have been using the galvanic body sway test (GBST) routinely for differential(More)
