[Effect of the stapedius and tensor tympani muscles tenotomy on the quality of life of patients suffering from Ménière's disease].

Orv Hetil 2020 Feb;161(5):177-182

Fül-Orr-Gégészeti és Fej-Nyaksebészeti Klinika, Semmelweis Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Budapest, Szigony u 36., 1083.

Tenotomy of the tendon of the stapedius and tensor tympani (TT) muscles is a minimal-invasive surgical therapeutic procedure in Ménière's disease (MD). It has been assumed that the TT medializes the stapes into the oval window, resulting in changes in perilymphatic pressures of the inner ear. By cutting the tendons of both middle ear muscles, they affect the pressure dynamics by not augmenting this pressure even further. Read More

Why and when to refer patients for vestibular evoked myogenic potentials: A critical review.

Clin Neurophysiol 2019 09 31;130(9):1539-1556. Epub 2019 May 31.

Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, University of Zurich, Switzerland.

Cervical and ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMPs and oVEMPs respectively) are now used by an increasing number of laboratories to evaluate otolith inner ear function and their pathways through the central nervous system. However, the literature is incomplete or unclear as to what information both c- and oVEMPs can add beyond what a good clinical examination can provide, and what other paramedical tests can provide also, and the present review aims to clarify what is known so far. The following review will describe what is known with regards to both c- and oVEMPs and their use. Read More

[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

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.

Meniere's disease.

Nat Rev Dis Primers 2016 05 12;2:16028. Epub 2016 May 12.

Department of Otolaryngology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Meniere's disease (MD) is a disorder of the inner ear that causes vertigo attacks, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus and aural fullness. The aetiology of MD is multifactorial. A characteristic sign of MD is endolymphatic hydrops (EH), a disorder in which excessive endolymph accumulates in the inner ear and causes damage to the ganglion cells. Read More

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.

Laryngorhinootologie 2016 Dec 18;95(12):831-836. Epub 2016 Mar 18.

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.
