The assay of the patients in a period of five years at our otoneurological department

Abstract

The authors aim to process the data of the patients in a period of the last five years at the Otoneurological Department.
They have examined the distribution of the patients according to their age and gender. They have also inspected the most common diseases. The number of patients has been assessed in monthly distribution, too. Most of the patients have been sent to an otoneurological check-up because of their complaints like tinnitus, vertigo or sensorineural hearing impairment.
A few years back most of the patients have been sent to an otoneurological out-patient department by their otolaryngologist or neurologist, recently the number of the patients who are sent to the otoneurological department by their family doctor, is increasing. The number of patients, who are seeking for medical care at the Internet, has increased, too.
The number of the patients who are sent to us by their audiologist is decreasing. The authors attache this trend to an increase in the availabity of the MRI. A significant number of patients come to our otoneurological department for regular of periodical control.
In this period of five years more than 8000 patients have shown up for a clinical inspection at our otoneurological department. About 25 % of the patients is regularly being treated and cared because of their cochleovestibular complaints, like Ménière’s disease, recurrent BPPV, or vertebrobasilar insufficiency.
