Association of Ménière disease with human leukocyte antigen in Taiwanese population.

Ear Nose Throat J 2018 Dec;97(12):396-402

College of Medicine, Chang Gung University, Taoyuan, Taiwan.

The etiology of Ménière disease (MD) is multifactorial; genetic factors seem to play an important role. The associations between MD and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) status have been studied previously in several populations and have shown that the HLA alleles imparting susceptibility varied. In the present study, we explored HLA status in Taiwanese patients with definitive MD. Read More

Disorders of the inner-ear balance organs and their pathways.

Handb Clin Neurol 2018 ;159:385-401

Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Central Clinical School, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia; Neurology Department, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Central Clinical School, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Electronic address:

Disorders of the inner-ear balance organs can be grouped by their manner of presentation into acute, episodic, or chronic vestibular syndromes. A sudden unilateral vestibular injury produces severe vertigo, nausea, and imbalance lasting days, known as the acute vestibular syndrome (AVS). A bedside head impulse and oculomotor examination helps separate vestibular neuritis, the more common and innocuous cause of AVS, from stroke. Read More

Imaging of Ménière Disease.

Neuroimaging Clin N Am 2019 Feb;29(1):19-28

Department of Radiology, GZA Hospitals Antwerp, Oosterveldlaan 24, Wilrijk 2610, Belgium.

Visualization of the morphologic substrate of Ménière disease, the endolymphatic hydrops, can be performed using noncontrast or contrast-enhanced MR imaging techniques. Noncontrast MR imaging uses a heavily T2-weighted sequence; however, its reproducibility remains to be confirmed. Contrast-enhanced MR imaging techniques mainly use a 3-dimensional fluid-attenuated inversion recovery sequence after intratympanic gadolinium administration or after a 4-hour delayed intravenous gadolinium administration.

Towards personalized medicine in Ménière's disease.

F1000Res 2018 15;7. Epub 2018 Aug 15.

Clinique du Vertige, Centre Hospitalier Emile Mayrisch, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg.

Ménière's disease (MD) represents a heterogeneous group of relatively rare disorders with three core symptoms: episodic vertigo, tinnitus, and sensorineural hearing loss involving 125 to 2,000 Hz frequencies. The majority of cases are considered sporadic, although familial aggregation has been recognized in European and Korean populations, and the search for familial MD genes has been elusive until the last few years. Detailed phenotyping and cluster analyses have found several clinical predictors for different subgroups of patients, which may indicate different mechanisms, including genetic and immune factors.

Comorbid Symptoms Occurring During Acute Low-Tone Hearing Loss (AHLH) as Potential Predictors of Menière's Disease.

Front Neurol 2018 29;9:884. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Charité- Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate Member of Freie Universität, Berlin Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and Berlin Institute of Health, Berlin, Germany.

Acute low-tone sensorineural hearing loss (ALHL) is a type of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss. ALHL is rarely a solitary condition but rather co-occurs with vertigo and tinnitus, being an element of contemporary diagnostic criteria for Menière's disease (MD). The goal of our present study was to determine the value of ALHL for the early diagnosis of MD in patients presenting in the emergency room with ALHL as a main complaint. Read More

Enhanced Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex Responses on vHIT. Is It a Casual Finding or a Sign of Vestibular Dysfunction?

Front Neurol 2018 15;9:866. Epub 2018 Oct 15.

Vestibular Research Laboratory, School of Psychology, The University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

In current clinical practice, when in response to vHIT testing the observed slow-phase eye-velocity responses are significantly higher than head velocity, the most probable cause is considered to be an inadequate collection method or a recording artifact. We present two cases with clinical diagnoses of Menière's Disease: for both cases, enhanced eye velocity responses were measured with a rigorous vHIT testing protocol. In the first case we measured these enhanced responses on each test performed during a 5 year time series; in the second case multiple measurements were obtained from a patient after the radiologic diagnosis of vestibulo-cochlear hydrops.

Authors:
Mitesh Patel

J Otol 2017 Sep 26;12(3):117-124. Epub 2017 Jun 26.

Division of Brain Sciences, Imperial College London, Charing Cross Hospital, London, W6 8RF, UK.

This article reviews the effectiveness of intratympanic corticosteroids for vertigo control in Ménière's disease at 2-years follow-up according to the guidelines expressed by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. Despite the increased use of intratympanic corticosteroids for vertigo control in Ménière's disease there is debate as to their effectiveness, particularly compared to gentamicin. Even so, after just a single course of injections, corticosteroids can reliably provide complete vertigo control (Class A) at 2-years in about 50% of cases as indicated in a recent double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial (Patel et al.

Hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus are related to vestibular organs dysfunction: truth or suggestion? A literature review.

Acta Diabetol 2018 Dec 23;55(12):1201-1207. Epub 2018 Jun 23.

Department of Medicine and Surgery, University of Salerno, Salerno, Italy.

Diabetes mellitus is an independent risk factor for falling, particularly in the elderly. Due to chronic hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia patients with diabetes mellitus may have neurological deficits as peripheral neuropathy that is a debilitating micro-vascular complication affecting the proximal and distal peripheral sensory and motor nerves. Sensory neuropathy is prominent and represents the chief contributor to postural instability in diabetic subjects. Read More

Susceptibility to Fear of Heights in Bilateral Vestibulopathy and Other Disorders of Vertigo and Balance.

Front Neurol 2018 6;9:406. Epub 2018 Jun 6.

German Center for Vertigo and Balance Disorders, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, University Hospital, Munich, Germany.

To determine the susceptibility to visual height intolerance (vHI) in patients with acquired bilateral vestibulopathy (BVP). The question was whether postural instability in BVP, which is partially compensated for by visual substitution of the impaired vestibular control of balance, leads to an increased susceptibility. This is of particular importance since fear of heights is dependent on body posture, and visual control of balance at heights can no longer substitute vestibular input. Read More

Visual vertigo: Vertigo of oculomotor origin.

Authors:
Seong Chin

Med Hypotheses 2018 Jul 3;116:84-95. Epub 2018 May 3.

Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, Department of Medicine, 1775 Dempster Street, Park Ridge, Illinois 60068, USA. Electronic address:

Since Róbert Bárány proposed his hypothesis on vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR), dizziness associated with vertigo has been interpreted as being vestibular in origin. However, there have been many contradictory findings showing modulations of VOR, which have caused confusion as to VOR's role and accuracy. Further, there seems to be an influence of VOR when the anatomical inner ear structures are congenitally absent. Read More

Vitamin D supplementation may improve symptoms in Meniere's disease.

Med Hypotheses 2018 Jul 24;116:44-46. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Vestibular Neurogenetics Laboratory, Boys Town National Research Hospital, Omaha, Nebraska, USA.

In the last 4 years the authors observed a trend that correcting vitamin D deficiency in newly diagnosed cases of Meniere's disease decreased the necessity of the ablative therapy with intratympanic gentamicin. According to their hypothesis, vitamin D supplementation may indeed have a beneficial effect in Meniere's disease if the symptoms are caused by a local postviral autoimmune reaction. Vitamin D has a strong immunomodulatory role, one of which is the regulation of the expression of pro-inflammatory mediators. Read More

Department of Neurology, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University.

The leading symptoms of bilateral vestibulopathy (BVP) are postural imbalance and unsteadiness of gait, deficits of spatial memory and navigation. The etiology of BVP remains unclear in more than 50% of patients: in these cases neurodegeneration is assumed. Frequent known causes are ototoxicity mainly due to gentamicin, bilateral Menière's disease, autoimmune diseases, meningitis and bilateral vestibular schwannoma, as well as an association with cerebellar degeneration.
