Vertigo with instable standing tested by Romberg procedure and documented by Cranio-Corpo-Craphy (CCG)

Summary: Vertigo is one of the most frightening symptoms of the human’s life. Cranio-corpo-graphy was designed firstly as a non-electronic, simple office recording procedure for head and body movements. The regular cranio-corpo-graphy procedure combines a stepping test (Unterberger, Fukuda) with a standing test (Romberg). The main parameters for evaluating the standing test cranio-corpo-grams are the […]

Neurootological findings in patients, suffering from occipital skull fractures

Skull traumas play an important roll in neurootological expertise writing. Skull traumas may occur at the rhinobasis, i.e. frontally, at the otobasis, i.e. laterally as well as from behind, i.e. occipitally. For this paper we have elected 26 cases of occipital skull fractures which were verified by radiology. It is known that the shockwaves of […]

Neurootological findings after intoxications of the inner ear

Specific chemical intoxications in the inner ear can arise from aminoglycosidic antibiotics. For this paper two samples of 485 patients after treatment with streptomycin and 23 patients after treatment of gentamycin have been randomly selected. The amount of vertigo complaints was more than double as high in the group with gentamycin. This also kept on […]

Tinnitus of the hypersensitive ear or the exogenous tinnitus

Tinnitus belongs to the most important symptoms in neurootology besides of vertigo, nausea and hearing loss. In most of the cases still the origin of the tinnitus is not yet explainable. It is well known that tinnitus may arise in any part of the hearing pathways, i.e., the cochlea receptor as well the temporal lobe […]

Tinnitus due to cochlear irritations

Degenerations, chemical, as well as physical hazards amongst external sources lead to untoward changes in inner ear functions, which frequently go together with the subjective sign of tinnitus. Chemical hazards can arise due to the presence of toxic or irritating gases, vapours from paints, lubricants or chemical solvents, gluing and sticking materials, and especially from […]

Tinnitus of cortical cerebral origin

Amongst our neurootological patients we frequently find multisensorial syndromes, for instance with combinations between tinnitus, hearing impairment, vertigo and nausea. The statistical results are exhibiting that tinnitus is bound to a multifactorial disease background. The topodiagnostic analysis of the stato-acoustic data shows that there exists significantly more central than peripheral pathology. With electro-cochleography, brainstem audiometry […]

Neurootological findings in multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is known to be a degenerative central nervous diseases with multiple, irregular spots of degeneration. As the posterior fossa part of the brain most frequently is involved, we undertook a thorough analysis by means of our neurootological investigations in 127 cases suffering from ”encephalitis disseminata”. In our history system NODEC the occurrence rate […]

Tinnitus due to irritations of the cervical spines

Tinnitus due to irritations of the cervical spines and the neck High incidence rates of functional neurootological disorders containing vertigo and tinnitus are found in the group of head-neck-trauma patients . This also is important in cases of musculo-skeletal dysfunctions like neck dystonus and cervical diseases. These groups are seen to form subgroups in which […]

Neurootological findings in patients with facial nerve palsies

The facial nerve carries a very sensitive neurosensorial, as well as sensory motor structure in very neighbourhood of the statoacoustic nerve. In this paper we are comparing related functional changes in the statoacoustic system in 2 samples with 235 cases of peripheral facial nerve palsies and 42 cases of central facial nerve palsies. When submitting […]

Tinnitus in combination with a vestibular recruitment

Vestibular Stimulus Response Intensity Comparisons (VSRIC) leading to the definition of a vestibular recruitment can be achieved by using intensity graded supraliminal stimuli of two different pairs. The perrotatory nystagmus results should be compared to the ipsilateral caloric warm responses. Discrepancies in both these tests indicate a vestibular recruitment or other pathology, thus reflecting the […]
