Transcanal endoscopic infracochlear vestibular neurectomy: A pilot cadaveric study.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Nov - Dec;39(6):731-736. Epub 2018 Aug 1.

Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, 243 Charles St, Boston, MA, USA; Department of Otolaryngology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA, USA; Department of Otolaryngology, University of Massachusetts Medical Center, 55 Lake Avenue North, Worcester, MA, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Effective operative approaches for the treatment of refractory vertigo in Meniere's disease are invasive. Vestibular neurectomy can preserve hearing and has been shown to be effective; however, current approaches require an extensive craniotomy. Transcanal endoscopic approaches to the internal auditory canal (IAC) with cochlear preservation have been recently described and may offer a minimally invasive approach to selectively sectioning the distal vestibular nerves while preserving residual hearing.

Optimal management of Cogan's syndrome: a multidisciplinary approach.

J Multidiscip Healthc 2018 22;11:1-11. Epub 2017 Dec 22.

Department of Sense Organs, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Cogan's syndrome (CS) is a rare disorder characterized by nonsyphilitic interstitial keratitis (IK) and audio-vestibular symptoms. CS affects mainly young Caucasian adults, mostly during their first three decades of age, and may develop into typical and atypical variants. Typical CS manifests primarily with IK and hearing loss, whereas atypical CS usually presents with inflammatory ocular manifestations in association with audio-vestibular symptoms but mostly different Ménière-like symptoms and, more frequently, with systemic inflammation (70%), of which vasculitis is the pathogenic mechanism.

[Recent surgical options for vestibular vertigo].

Laryngorhinootologie 2017 Apr 12;96(S 01):S209-S229. Epub 2017 May 12.

Klinik für Hals-, Nasen-, Ohrenheilkunde, Kopf- und Halschirurgie der Ruhr-Universität Bochum am St. Elisabeth-Hospital Bochum.

Vertigo is not a well defined symptom but a heterogenous entity diagnosed and treated mainly by otolaryngologists, neurologists, internal medicine and primary care physicians. Most vertigo syndroms have a good prognosis and management is predominantly conservative, whereas the need for surgical therapy is rare, but for a subset of patients often the only remaining option. In this paper, we describe the development of surgical therapy for hydropic inner ear diseases, Menière disease, dehiscence syndroms, perilymphatic fistulas, and benign paroxysmal vertigo. Read More

Endolymphatic Sac Surgery for Ménière's Disease - Current Opinion and Literature Review.

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2017 Apr;21(2):179-183

Otorhinolaryngology and Neurotology, Grupo Otológico Médica Sur, Neurociencias Clínicas e Investigación, Ciudad de México, DF, Mexico.

 The endolymphatic sac is thought to maintain the hydrostatic pressure and endolymph homeostasis for the inner ear, and its dysfunction may contribute to the pathophysiology of Ménière's disease. Throughout the years, different surgical procedures for intractable vertigo secondary to Ménière's disease have been described, and though many authors consider these procedures as effective, there are some who question its long-term efficacy and even those who think that vertigo control is achieved more due to a placebo effect than because of the procedure itself.  To review the different surgical procedures performed in the endolymphatic sac for the treatment of Ménière's disease.

A Two-Year Randomized Trial of Interventions to Decrease Stress Hormone Vasopressin Production in Patients with Meniere's Disease-A Pilot Study.

PLoS One 2016 30;11(6):e0158309. Epub 2016 Jun 30.

Department of Otolaryngology, Nara Medical University, Kashihara-city, Nara, Japan.

Unlabelled: Meniere's disease, a common inner ear condition, has an incidence of 15-50 per 100,000. Because mental/physical stress and subsequent increase in the stress hormone vasopressin supposedly trigger Meniere's disease, we set a pilot study to seek new therapeutic interventions, namely management of vasopressin secretion, to treat this disease. We enrolled 297 definite Meniere's patients from 2010 to 2012 in a randomized-controlled and open-label trial, assigning Group-I (control) traditional oral medication, Group-II abundant water intake, Group-III tympanic ventilation tubes and Group-IV sleeping in darkness.

Identification of operculum and surgical results in endolymphatic sac drainage surgery.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2017 Feb 19;44(1):116-118. Epub 2016 Mar 19.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Nara Medical University, Nara, Japan.

To increase the accuracy of identification of the endolymphatic sac during endolymphatic sac drainage surgery, we focused on the intra-operative identification of the operculum as a structural marker of the endolymphatic sac and the vestibular aqueduct at the rugose portion. Then, we examined the relationship between identification of the operculum and surgical outcomes. We used 100 cases with intractable Meniere's disease who received endolymphatic sac drainage with local steroid administration, superior to traditional endolymphatic sac drainage surgery and non-surgical medical treatment.

Due to the natural aging and the loosened CI-implantation criteria more formerly operated Meniere's patients will be supplied with a cochlear implant. However, it raises the question whether an implantation in a previously treated ear is promising. Based on 2 cases in which we have carried out a CI-implantation, one of them 10 years after transmastoidal labyrinthectomy, and based on the current literature we draw attention to problems and prospects of success.

Acta Otolaryngol 2015 Jul 11;135(7):667-72. Epub 2015 Mar 11.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Nara Medical University , Nara , Japan.

Conclusions: At the second postoperative year, there were no significant differences between results for vertigo and hearing after endolymphatic sac drainage with steroid instillation surgery (EDSS) and EDSS with posterior tympanotomy with steroids at the round window (EDRW). In particular, as regards hearing recovery to the preoperative level, the periods after EDRW were shorter than those after the second EDSS.

Objectives: Patients sometimes faces recurrent problems years after EDSS due to endolymphatic sac closure and/or disease progression. Read More

Vestibular implantation and longitudinal electrical stimulation of the semicircular canal afferents in human subjects.

J Neurophysiol 2015 Jun 4;113(10):3866-92. Epub 2015 Feb 4.

Department of Otolaryngology-HNS, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington; Department of Bioengineering, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington; National Primate Research Center, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington; and Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.

Animal experiments and limited data in humans suggest that electrical stimulation of the vestibular end organs could be used to treat loss of vestibular function. In this paper we demonstrate that canal-specific two-dimensionally (2D) measured eye velocities are elicited from intermittent brief 2 s biphasic pulse electrical stimulation in four human subjects implanted with a vestibular prosthesis. The 2D measured direction of the slow phase eye movements changed with the canal stimulated. Read More

Long-term administration of vasopressin can cause Ménière's disease in mice.

Acta Otolaryngol 2014 Oct 18;134(10):990-1004. Epub 2014 Aug 18.

Department of Otolaryngology, Hiroshima University Faculty of Medicine , Hiroshima , Japan.

Conclusion: A new murine model of Ménière's disease has been developed, based on long-term administration of vasopressin. Induction of vestibular dysfunction in the present animal model can cause additional stress, by reducing inner ear blood flow. Latanoprost, a selective agonist for the FP prostanoid receptor, may become a new remedy for Ménière's disease. Read More

[Intratympanic corticosteroid perfusion in the therapy of Meniere's disease].

Srp Arh Celok Lek 2014 May-Jun;142(5-6):291-5

Introduction: Over the last two decades the intratympanic perfusion of corticosteroids has been used as a minimally invasive surgical therapy of Meniere's disease. According to experimental studies the antiinflammatory, immunoprotective, antioxidant and neuroprotective role of the locally perfused corticosteroids was noticed in the inner ear structures. The recovery of action potentials in the cells of the Corti organ was confirmed as well as a decreased expression of aquaporine-1, a glycoprotein responsible for labyrinth hydrops and N and K ions derangement.
