The study aims to investigate the VEMPs in cases of delayed endolymphatic hydrops because greatly dilated saccule was observed in histopathological specimens of delayed endolymphatic hydrops. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. METHODS Twenty patients with delayed endolymphatic hydrops were subjected to pure-tone audiometry, caloric testing, and VEMP test… CONTINUE READING
