P-100 in the treatment of Ménière’s disease, a clinical study

Abstract

Patients suffering from Ménière’s disease are particularly sensitive to negative pressure in the middle ear. E.g. attacks of vertigo can be triggered by a descent in an aircraft when ventilation of the middle ear can become critical. Positive pressure pulse treatment has shown to have a beneficial effect on the symptomatology, and is now a true alternative in the treatment of Ménière’s disease. In this study two devices were compared that produced positive pressure pulses delivered to the inner ear via the external ear canal and after the insertion of a middle ear ventilation tube. Both devices (Meniett and P-100) were equally successful and confirmed that positive pressure pulse treatment is a true alternative to current treatment modalities. However, the P-100 is the preferred device, particularly for its convenience of use, and the costs which are considerably less.
Improvement of the symptoms vertigo, fullness in the ear and nausea were statistically significant, and there was statistically no difference between the Meniett and P-100
