Vestibular disorders in old age vertigo

Good health is not only a privilege of young generation but also of elderly people. Nowadays 13% of the population has reached the age of 65, and one third of them have vertiginous attack at least once in their life. 45-70% of the elderly has one or more drop attacks yearly. In the Semmelweis University […]

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 […]

Statoacoustic failures with respect to Neurootometric measurements occurring in Tinnitus Cases

Besides of vertigo, nausea and hearing loss tinnitus belongs to the most important symptoms in neurootology. We have to discriminate between an endogenous i.e. a maskable tinnitus, from an exogenous tinnitus, which is nonmaskable. However, both are spontaneous, subjective and annoying phenomena, which frequently still are listed amongst other diseases of the ear. For this […]

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 […]

Abnormal Vestibular Dynamics Reflecting Aberrations

 By comparing the per-rotatory and the caloric tests, we can get important information regarding the stato-acoustic system.  Considering the different behaviour of the stato-acoustic system under the influences of the changing dynamics of the shape and the intensity of the supraliminal vestibular stimuli in tinnitus patients, we are trying to find a correlation between the […]

Current trends of neurootological pharmacotherapy

Major neurootological complaints, which mostly need drug treatment, are: giddiness, dizziness, hearing loss and tinnitus. The neurootological differential diagnosis is the basis for planning the mostly supportive treatment of vertigo patients. In planning the therapy, we are utilizing a computerbased expert system CLAMEDEX for establishing the neurootological diagnosis through history, ORL inspection, ENG, calorics, rotatory […]

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 […]

Typical Caloric ENG Findings in the Claussen-Butterfly in Tinnitus Cases

The aim of this study was to investigate the different caloric findings in the Claussen-Butterflies in tinnitus patients under the assumption of a closely interrelated stato-acoustic network and to correlate these findings with our different tinnitus types. For this we used the NODEC IV data bank and searched for the most frequent types of butterflies […]

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 […]
