Stabilometry in patients with ménière’s disease

Abstract

Objective: to analyze the oscillatory velocity of the pressure center (COP) of the body in different sensorial contexts in patients with Ménière’s Disease.
Methods: 15 subjects, 02 males and 13 females, aged 28-71 years, who presented defined diagnostic of Ménière’s Disease were submitted to evaluation of the modified clinical test of sensorial integration (mCTSIB) by stabilometry. Statistical results were evaluated by factorial analysis through the orthogonal rotation method Varimax with normalization of Kaiser and discriminating analysis by Wilks Lambda test.
Results: A significant statistical difference between the oscillation velocity media from COP was observed in the conditions with and without foam (p<0,0001). The discriminating analysis points to a group of patients with ages between 60 and 71 years who presented the worst performance in the mCTSIB test and who may be discriminated from younger subjects. Conclusion: patients with Ménière’s Disease and out of crises show increase of the COP oscillation average velocity in stabilometry in the following sensorial contexts: smooth surface (foam); smooth surface (foam) and eyes closed, patients aged 60-71 years in comparison to 28-43 and 44-59 years of age. The sensorial context smooth surface was the responsible factor for the balance performance discrimination of these patients in stabilometry
