Neurootologic therapy

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 […]

Possibilities of using an implanted titanium-tube system for picking up sound from the external ear canal

Further developements in the fitting procedure of conventional and implantable hearing systems as well as tinnitus instruments u

Repositioning manoeuvre in the treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo

Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is justified by “cupulolithiasis” and “canalolithiasis” theories. The aim of the rehabilitation basing on the manoeuvres is to move debris from the pathological places in semicircular canal or from the cupula to the vestibule. The aim of the work was an evaluation of the usefulness of the liberatory […]

Vestibular rehabilitation: a bridge form ii to iii millennium:from cawthorne-cooksey protocol to virtual reality

Vertigo and dizziness are very common symptoms, nevertheless specific drugs are very few, therefore vestibular rehabilitation is the main therapy for persistent unbalance and dizziness. In this work we present a short history of the vestibular rehabilitation and its principles from Cawthorne-Cooksey protocol to the Mechanic, Cybernetic and Synergetic (MCS) model. Besides we speak about […]

Spinal fluid-perilymph relationships in patients with vertigo, tinnitus, pressure and hearing fluctuation

Over the last 28 years the author has been fascinated with both Meniere’s disease and patients with perilymphatic fistula (PLF), two conditions which at times closely resemble each other and at times may be indistinguishable. Both conditions manifest themselves with vertigo, tinnitus, pressure or fullness and hearing fluctuation or loss. All of these entities may […]

The use of antiserotonin drugs in the nucleo-reticular vestibular syndrome and vestibular neuronitis

Vestibular Neuronitis was described in 1949 and 1952 by Dix and Hallpike. Two groups of patients were described, those with sudden seizures and sensations of blackout (since identified as having Vestibular Neuritis) and a second group with symptoms of disequilibrium and feelings of top heaviness or imbalance. The pathology was felt to be central to […]

Neurootological test results in rehabilitation

For this study we have selected tinnitus patients who suffer from tinnitus during their professional life. Therefore this group has undergone a therapeutic rehabilitation therapy for tinnitus with a programmed ameliorative improving therapy with guidance, exercise, instructions and special tinnitus rehab-program. As has been proved by vestibular evoked cortical potentials, together with charting by means […]

Vestibular rehabilitation in whiplash injuries

Whiplash injury can be defined as a non-contact rapid acceleration-deceleration head-neck trauma during which the kinematics of the cervical spine are completely disrupted. Because of the impact a sudden violent head retro-flexion is followed by an as much as violent head antero-flexion. The therapy influenced Tonic muscles by increasing labyrinthine percentage and induced a reduction […]
