Postconcussion syndrome.

Handb Clin Neurol 2018 ;158:163-178

Department of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, United States. Electronic address:

Postconcussion syndrome (PCS) is a heterogeneous condition comprised of a set of signs and symptoms in somatic, cognitive, and emotional domains. PCS is a controversial concept because of differing consensus criteria, variability in presentation, and lack of specificity to concussion. Whereas symptoms of concussion resolve in most individuals over days to weeks, a minority of individuals experience symptoms persisting months to years. Read More

Symptoms Associated with Vestibular Impairment in Veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.

PLoS One 2016 29;11(12):e0168803. Epub 2016 Dec 29.

Department of Pharmacology, Physiology and Neuroscience, Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences, Newark, New Jersey, United States of America.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a chronic and disabling, anxiety disorder resulting from exposure to life threatening events such as a serious accident, abuse or combat (DSM IV definition). Among veterans with PTSD, a common complaint is dizziness, disorientation and/or postural imbalance in environments such as grocery stores and shopping malls. The etiology of these symptoms in PTSD is poorly understood and some attribute them to anxiety or traumatic brain injury. Read More

Persistent vertigo and dizziness after mild traumatic brain injury.

Ann N Y Acad Sci 2015 Apr 26;1343:97-105. Epub 2015 Feb 26.

Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix, Arizona; Department of Neurology, University of Arizona College of Medicine, Phoenix, Arizona.

Vertigo, dizziness, and disequilibrium are common symptoms following concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Dizziness and vertigo may be the result of trauma to the peripheral vestibular system or the central nervous system, or, in some cases, may be due to anxiety, depression, or posttraumatic stress disorder; these mechanisms are not mutually exclusive. While most peripheral vestibular disorders can be identified by testing and examination, those without inner-ear causes that have persisting complaints of dizziness and motion sickness are more difficult to understand and to manage.

Posttraumatic vertigo and dizziness.

Semin Neurol 2013 Jul 21;33(3):238-43. Epub 2013 Sep 21.

Barrow Neurological Institute, Phoenix, Arizona.

Dizziness and vertigo are common symptoms following minor head trauma. Although these symptoms resolve within a few weeks in many patients, in some the symptoms may last much longer and impede ability to return to work and full functioning. Causes of persisting or recurrent dizziness may include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, so-called labyrinthine concussion, unilateral vestibular nerve injury or damage to the utricle or saccule, perilymphatic fistula, or less commonly traumatic endolymphatic hydrops.

Multiple fusiform cerebral aneurysms - case report.

Pol J Radiol 2012 Jan;77(1):50-3

Department of Medical Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging, 4 Military Clinical Hospital with the Polyclinic in Wrocław, Wrocław, Poland.

Background: A true aneurysym is a dilation of arterial lumen as a consequence of congenital or acquired abnormalities leading to a reduction of mechanical resistance of vascular wall, most commonly caused by its defected structure in the form of absence or weakening of the muscular and/or elastic layer. From the pathophysiological point of view, cerebral aneurysms can be classified as 'saccular' - most commonly occurring, and 'other types', including fusiform/dolichoectatic, dissecting, serpentine, posttraumatic, mycotic and giant aneurysms with or without intra-aneurysmal thrombosis.

Case Report: We present a rare case of a patient with multiple fusiform dilations of cerebral vessels and giant fusiform aneurysm in supraclinoid segment of the internal carotid artery. Read More

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2007 Dec;116(12):887-90

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Inselspital, University of Berne, Berne, Switzerland.

We evaluated 4 men who had benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) that occured several hours after intensive mountain biking but without head trauma. The positional maneuvers in the planes of the posterior and horizontal canals elicited BPPV, as well as transitory nystagmus. This was attributed to both the posterior and horizontal semicircular canals (SCCs) on the left side in 1 patient, in these 2 SCCs on the right side in another patient, and to the right posterior SCC in the other 2 patients.

Department of Neurology, Meir General Hospital, Kfar-Saba 44281, Israel.

Background: Although head trauma is considered a common cause of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), clinical presentation and outcome of traumatic BPPV (t-BPPV) have not been systematically evaluated.

Objectives: To compare the clinical presentation, patient's response to physical treatment, and outcome of patients with t-BPPV with those with the idiopathic form (i-BBPV).

Setting: Tertiary referral neuro-otology outpatient clinic. Read More

Transtympanic gentamicin perfusion for the treatment of Meniere's disease.

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2002 Apr;35(2):287-95, vi

Nashville EAR Institute, 4230 Harding Rd #803, Nashville, TN 37205, USA.

Meniere's syndrome is defined as the clinical disorder associated with the histopathological finding of endolymphatic hydrops (ELH). Clinically, Meniere's syndrome includes the following features: recurrent, spontaneous episodic vertigo; hearing loss; aural fullness; and tinnitus. Recognized causes of Meniere's syndrome include: 1) idiopathic, also known as Meniere's disease; 2) posttraumatic, following head injury or ear surgery; 3) post-infectious or delayed-onset Meniere's syndrome following a viral infection, usually mumps or measles; 4) late stage syphilitic; 5) classic Cogan's syndrome with episodic vertigo, hearing loss, interstitial keratitis, without syphilis; 6) variant Cogan's syndrome with episodic vertigo, hearing loss, uveitis or other ocular inflammation and without syphilis.

Quantitative measurements of eye movements in a patient with Tullio phenomenon.

J Vestib Res 1996 Jul-Aug;6(4):255-9

Department of Neurology, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

The Tullio phenomenon consists of vestibular symptoms on exposure to high-intensity acoustic stimuli, reflecting pathological stimulation of semicircular canals or otoliths. We report a patient with posttraumatic Tullio phenomenon to illustrate how precise measurement of eye movements during auditory stimulation, using the magnetic search coil technique, may characterize movements that are not clinically apparent or easily measured by other means. Such measurements in patients with surgically verified lesions may further elucidate the mechanisms responsible for this phenomenon. Read More

Authors:
T B Molony

Am J Otol 1996 May;17(3):421-4

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Ochsner Clinic, New Orleans, Louisiana 70121, USA.

Indications for vestibular neurectomy have traditionally included intractable Meniere's disease, chronic vestibular neuronitis, vestibular hydrops, and posttraumatic vertigo. Between 1990 and 1993, 28 retrosigmoid vestibular neurectomies were performed for various peripheral vestibulopathies for which medical management failed. These were divided into two groups: Meniere's disease and non-Meniere's disease. Read More
