Evolution of migraine vertigo in overlapping syndrome with Ménière's disease: prognostic role of instrumental examination.

Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2021 Apr;41(2):180-184

Istituto Euro-Mediterraneo di Scienza e Tecnologia - IEMEST, Palermo, Italy.

Introduction: Migraine vertigo (MV) and Ménière's disease (MD) share several signs and symptoms such as tinnitus, fullness, photophobia, phonophobia, headache and vertigo spells lasting hours.

Objective: The aim of the present study was to prospectively observe patients with MV with a sporadic audiological symptom evaluated with clinical examination, Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials (VEMPs), ECochG and v-HIT.

Results: The finding of VEMP asymmetry, according to our cut-off of 33% of difference between sides, resulted in 20 cases, of which 6 had asymmetry of both c-VEMPs and o-VEMPS, all with development of fluctuating hearing during follow-up. Read More

Cochlear implant in prelingually hearing-impaired adults: prognostic factors and results.

Acta Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2021 Apr;41(2):173-179

Otolaryngology, Audiology and Phoniatrics Unit, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Objectives: The aim of present study is to evaluate the impact of prognostic factors on the outcome in a group of prelingually hearing-impaired patients submitted to cochlear implantation (CI) at an adult age.

Methods: This is a retrospective study on a cohort of prelingually severe-to-profound hearing-impaired patients cochlear implanted in adulthood and followed by a single audiology centre. We correlated post-CI results in term of speech perception with patients' speech perception with hearing aids before implantation, history of progression of hearing loss (HL), and levels of education and cognition.
