Neurootologic therapy

Combined therapy (vasoactive drug treatment and optokinetic training) for rehabilitation in different vestibular dysfunctions

Abstract Objectives: Rehabilitation of patients with balance disorders is a great challenge for physicians. The aim of our prospective study was to examine the results of combined vestibular rehabilitation treatment in different types of vestibular lesions (central dysfunction, unilateral and bilateral type of peripheral lesion). Methods The patients having chronic vertigo symptoms were treated with […]


Complex rehabilitation of patients with Ménière’s disease

Abstract: Ménière’s disease is a severe disorder of the inner ear. The disorder has several types: periodical type (40%), progressive type (27%), regressive type (20%) and a variable form (13%). The treatment of the acute attack is quite easy, it contains antiemetic, antihistamines and benzodiazepines. The interval therapy has no evidence based rules. The aims […]


TREATMENT OF VESTIBULAR VERTIGO: COMPARISON OF A FIXED COMBINATION OF CINNARIZINE 20MG AND DIMENHYDRINATE 40MG WITH THE 2.5-FOLD HIGHER DOSED ACTIVE DRUGS IN MONOTHERAPY

ABSTRACT Objective: Efficacy and tolerability of the fixed combination cinnarizine 20mg/dimenhydrinate 40mg was compared to cinnarizine 50mg and dimenhydrinate 100mg in peripheral, central or mixed peripheral/central vertigo. Methods: 189 patients were randomized to receive 1 tablet of medication, 3 times daily, for 4 weeks. Vertigo (‘mean vertigo score’, MVS) and concomitant symptoms, balance (craniocorpography) and […]


FIXED COMBINATION OF CINNARIZINE AND DIMENHYDRINATE VERSUS BETAHISTINE DIMESYLATE IN MÉNIÈRE’s DISEASE

ABSTRACT Background: Ménière’s disease (MD) is characterized by recurrent, sudden episodes of disabling vertigo. A previous randomized, controlled study demonstrated a high efficacy of a fixed combination of cinnarizine 20mg and dimenhydrinate 40mg (Arlevert®, tid.) in MD, with no statistically significant difference to betahistine (dimesylate salt, 12mg, tid). Objective: This post hoc analysis was performed […]


Tinnitus: A New Model of Pharmacological Therapy

Tinnitus Therapy schedule developed by us, we based on the schema of the auditory via and on the cortico -striatum- thalamus -cortical control system. The selected medicine or neurotransmitter will be directed to regulating the neuronal hyperactivity or hypoactivity functions, depending on the topographical location of tinnitus. It is impossible to treat tinnitus by a […]


Experiences of treatment of sever type of tinnitus

Sever type of tinnitus is very hard to treat because tinnitus is highly inked to emotional system, the limbic system. To treat it, therefore, all means such as life style intervention, consultation, medication, doctor’s rich successful experience and relaxation should be used. External electrical stimulation may be one of relaxation therapy and tinntius relieved once […]


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 […]


Treatment of elderly patients with chronic dizziness

There is an opportunity to treat elderly patients with chronic dizziness for many months and many years by external electrical stimulation. By which tinnitus patients’ balance was reported to improve in International Tinnitus Journal of 1999. In elderly people, if chronic dizziness continues, it may fall into a disuse functional atrophy. So, it is more […]


Is an electrical stimulation an autogenic training?

I proposed similarity of an electrical stimulation to an autogenic training. Two years ago in Melbourne. However, my idea about the similarity was not clear at that time. In Bad Kissingen professor Claussen asked me that any other alternatives for electrical stimulation were there.  My English is so poor that I clearly said noting replace […]


Acustic neurinoma. report a case.

By Definition Acoustic Neurinoma is a benign tumor that may develop on the hearing and balance nerves near the inner ear. The tumor results from an overproduction of Schwann cells – small, sheet-like cells that normally wrap around nerve fibers like onion skin and help support the nerves. When growth is abnormally excessive, Schwann cells […]
