 Vestibular inputs tonically activate the antigravitative leg muscles during normal standing in humans, and visual information and proprioceptive inputs from the legs are very sensitive sensory loops for body sway control. This study investigated the postural control in a homogeneous population of 50 unilateral vestibular-deficient patients (Ménière’s disease patients). It analyzed the postural deficits of the patients before and after surgical treatment (unilateral vestibular neurotomy) of… CONTINUE READING
