Surgical treatments are directed at relief of the putative cause endolymphatic sac or at deafferentation of the affected ear vestibular nerve section, labyrinthectomy [surgical or chemical].

Most achieve a desirable reduction in vertigo symptoms. Salt has shown that endolymph does not flow longitudinally from source to sac under normal conditions Salt and DeMott,but endolymph will flow into the endolymphatic sac under abnormal conditions. Thus, theories of pathogenesis based on the concept of endolymph flow must be reexamined in the light of this new evidence. Many have hypothesized that the sac exists primarily to resorb fluid.


The loss may be total and is unpredictable. Am J Otol, 19pp.

Putative theories of etiology must take this fact into account. J Otolaryngol, 24pp.

Am J Otol, 20pp. The clinical course for any given patient is unpredictable, reflecting the capricious nature of the disorder. Tympanostomy Tube Insertion Montandon et al advocated tympanostomy tube insertion as a prophylactic measure for MD vertigo and showed anecdotal evidence of success.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol The procedures are discussed in order of increasing invasiveness and complexity. Invasive Surgical Procedures Nondestructive Endolymphatic sac surgery remains controversial.

The results of our two-year follow-up study will efnermedad reported in the near future. J Am Acad Audiol Labyrinthotomy with streptomycin infusion: Subsequent research has shown that intermittent application of positive pressure micropulses to the inner ear via a tympanostomy tube is associated with improvement in symptoms in active MD cases Odkvist, et al, Subarachnoid shunt for drainage of hydrops. Static pressure changes transmitted to the inner ear fluids equalize within seconds Densert et al,but intermittent pressure pulses reduce experimental hydrops Densert et al, This was a bold study with careful controls to minimize bias.

Vertigo associated with MD is irritative in nature, that is, the slow component of the nystagmus is away from the affected ear during an attack. Am J Otol None of the surgeons or patients was aware of the treatment assignment.

Given that the vast majority of cases of MD are unilateral and nonfamilial, it is likely that some extrinsic event precedes the onset of the disorder. Update of an ongoing study.

As the disorder progresses, hearing thresholds typically no longer fluctuate and remain poor. Otolaryngol Clin North Am 8: Indications for surgical treatment are variable, and choice of fisiopatlogia treatment to use is nonstandard.

This test measures the difference in wave V latency in the response to clicks presented alone and to clicks in the presence of high-pass pink masking noise. Am J Otolaryngol 6: Two stages of MD are recognized, an early fluctuant stage in which the hearing improves after an attack, and the late, socalled neural stage, where the hearing loss is more or less fixed at a moderate hearing loss level or worse.


It is not known whether hydrops is the cause of the symptoms or simply a side effect of the disorder. Gibson W, Arenberg I. Salt has demonstrated that agents placed directly into the endolymph do not diffuse appreciably Salt and DeMott,so it is likely that the effect of the corticosteroid would be confined to meeniere area around the round window.

The evidence of effectiveness of diuretic therapy is based on studies from the s that have not been replicated with modern methods. Densert B, Densert O. Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg,pp. For the three months prior to operation, the average monthly vertigo score was 30 for both groups. We compared vertigo frequency for the two weeks before and after tube insertion and found no effect Gates et al, Rather, they attest to the limited symptom set associated with the vestibular labyrinth and its central connections.
