Medical Therapy A low salt diet has been the mainstay of therapy since when first advocated by Dederding of Copenhagena female otolaryngologist who suffered from MD.

Otol Neurotol 26 4: The mechanism for this treatment approach is not established nor has the therapy been evaluated in a controlled study. Morrison et al, Repeated audiograms showing fluctuation or a positive glycerol test are held to be evidence of cochlear hydrops.

Hallpike C, Cairns H. However, this animal model does not result in anything resembling attacks of vertigo, even though a predictable low-tone hearing loss occurs. Brookes GBooth J. Typically, the vertigo begins fairly quickly and builds in intensity over minutes to hours. While there is copious endermedad evidence, the true success of salt restriction is unknown. Intratympanic Gentamicin O v e r t h e p a s t d e c a d e, ch e m i c a l labyrinthectomy has become increasingly used because of low cost and low risk Pender, Most physicians recommend a daily sodium intake not to exceed 1.

It was inferred that a positive pressure change in the inner ear compartment may lead to a reduction in the endolymphatic fluid volume via the inner ear pressure communication routes.

J Otolaryngol, 24pp.

Thus, there is now sufficient evidence to address both the shortterm and long-term outcomes of use of the Meniett device. Many etiologic theories of MD and many experimental models have focused on dysfunction of the endolymphatic sac as the cause of the hydrops. We compared vertigo frequency for the two weeks before and after tube insertion and found no effect Gates et al, Human DPOAE in the hydropic ear is very sensitive to the effects of ingested glycerol and change from baseline more than the normal ear, and, in addition, the rate of change is earlier than the change in pure-tone thresholds or word recognition Magliulo et al, Excluding other conditions e.


These results led the fisiopatilogia to deny any effect of the surgery Thomsen et al, Gentamicin injection into the middle ear offers a safe and reasonably effective method for chemical labyrinthectomy for people with intractable vertigo willing to risk hearing loss.

Additionally, efforts to limit caffeine intake and reduce stress are recommended by many physicians. Given that the procedure is safe, is done as an outpatient, and is rarely associated with hearing loss or vestibular loss, fisiopatllogia remains a valuable choice for some patients. Am J Otol, 18pp. The apparent rationale for intratympanic steroid therapy is a possible immune disorder. Hrobjartsson A, Gotzsche P. Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg,pp. Hydrops has been noted after chronic administration of vasopression, which suggests an alternative mechanism Dde, Food and Drug Administration.

Gulya A, Schuknecht H.

McCabe B, Harker L. More recently, injection of corticosteroid into the middle ear has been advocated Arriaga and Goldman, Recurrence of vertigo after vestibular nerve section is rare, hearing loss is uncommon, and the longterm vertigo control results are excellent.

A report enfefmedad cases. These are generally regarded as stressors rather than etiologic agents.


Am J Otol, 19pp. Nonetheless, an analysis xe the current theories is appropriate and potentially useful. On the plus side, the device has essentially no side effects; it is portable and easy to use; it gives patients a sense of control over their condition; and the results have been encouraging. The generally beneficial effect of surgery on the endolymphatic sac, especially excision, might also be explained by physical down-regulation of saccin production.

Viral infection of endolymphatic sac was proposed by Shucknecht as the mfniere event that disrupts the normal endolymphatic fluid control mechanisms. Vascular loops in the internal auditory canal may cause imbalance but seldom results in vertigo similar to MD McCabe and Harker, Diamox has been evaluated several times with contradictory results Varga et al, ; Brookes et al, ; Brookes and Booth, We also demonstrated that outcome is influenced by the severity of symptoms at the beginning of therapy and by vestibular status.


We obtained good results over vertigo control types A and B of the objective criteria based in the improvement index after treatment in 16 out of the 24 patients Update of an ongoing study.

There are many unresolved issues regarding the Meniett Over a four-month period of use, the vertigo scores of the Meniett device users was significantly reduced compared to the vertigo scores of the placebo device users even though vertigo scores fell in both groups.

This concept also requires that endolymph is produced in the cochlea and semicircular canals and is resorbed in the endolymphatic sac. Gates et al Gates et al, and Thomsen et al Putative theories of etiology must take this fact into account. There was no effect on hearing.
