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

The functional head impulse test: Comparing gain and percentage of correct answers.

Prog Brain Res 2019 23;248:241-248. Epub 2019 May 23.

Department of Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.

Objectives: The video head impulse test (vHIT) provides as output a gain value that summarizes the behavior of the vestibulo-ocular reflex as the ratio of a measure of eye movement to the corresponding measure of head movement and is not directly informative of the functional effectiveness of the motor response. The functional HIT (fHIT) is based on the ability to recognize the orientation of a Landolt C optotype that briefly appears on a computer screen during passive head impulses imposed by the examiner over a range of head accelerations; accordingly fHIT is a functional measurement of the vestibular-ocular reflex since it measures the capability to keep clear vision and to read during head movement.

Methods: We compared the results of the fHIT with those of the vHIT and the results of the Dizziness Handicap Inventory (DHI) questionnaire in a group of 27 vestibular neuritis patients recorded acutely and at 3-months follow-up. Read More

Med Biol Eng Comput 2019 Aug 4;57(8):1617-1627. Epub 2019 May 4.

Department of Clinical Sciences and Translational Medicine, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Via Montpellier, 1; E sud Tower, 00133, Rome, Italy.

Since usefulness of power spectra (PS) analysis was demonstrated in many fields of electrophysiology, the aims of the present study were to evaluate differences in frequency domain values of eye velocity traces between a group of 60 healthy subjects (HC) and 35 matched superior vestibular neuritis (VN) patients and to determine prognostic aspects of such values in terms of superior VN recovery. PS calculated on video head impulse test traces was compared between HC and during the acute stage of vertigo (T1) and after 3 months (T2) in superior VN patients. A multiple regression and desirability model between Δ (T2gain - T1gain) vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) gain and five prognostic factors were employed. Read More

A review of mechanical and synaptic processes in otolith transduction of sound and vibration for clinical VEMP testing.

J Neurophysiol 2019 07 1;122(1):259-276. Epub 2019 May 1.

School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, The University of Newcastle and Hunter Medical Research Institute. Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.

Older studies of mammalian otolith physiology have focused mainly on sustained responses to low-frequency (<50 Hz) or maintained linear acceleration. So the otoliths have been regarded as accelerometers. Thus evidence of otolithic activation and high-precision phase locking to high-frequency sound and vibration appears to be very unusual.

Long-term clinical outcome in vestibular neuritis.

Curr Opin Neurol 2019 02;32(1):174-180

German Center for Vertigo and Balance Disorders.

Purpose Of Review: To review recent work on clinical and imaging aspects of vestibular neuritis (or acute vestibular syndrome), in particular with a view to identifying factors predicting long-term clinical outcome.

Recent Findings: Evidence for a role of inflammation in the vestibular nerve, and the presence of Gadolinium enhancement acutely in vestibular neuritis, is accruing. Visual dependence, anxiety and somatization traits predict the development of chronic dizziness after acute vestibular neuritis. Read More

An fMRI study of visuo-vestibular interactions following vestibular neuritis.

Neuroimage Clin 2018 9;20:1010-1017. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Neuro-otology Unit, Division of Brain Sciences, Charing Cross Hospital, Imperial College London, London W6 8RP, UK. Electronic address:

Vestibular neuritis (VN) is characterised by acute vertigo due to a sudden loss of unilateral vestibular function. A considerable proportion of VN patients proceed to develop chronic symptoms of dizziness, including visually induced dizziness, specifically during head turns. Here we investigated whether the development of such poor clinical outcomes following VN, is associated with abnormal visuo-vestibular cortical processing. Read More
