Serum oxidative stress, inflammatory response and platelet activation in patients with vascular vertigo.

Serum oxidative stress, inflammatory response and platelet activation in patients with vascular vertigo. J Biol Regul Homeost Agents. 2019 Apr 04;33(2) Authors: Qian SX, Gu JX, Guan QB, Zhang XL, Wang YP Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation and clinical significance of oxidative stress and inflammatory response in vascular vertigo (VV). The subjects were divided into three groups: vascular vertigo (group A), non-vascular vertigo (group B) and controls (group C). The serum levels of IL-6 (interleukins-6), SOD (superoxide dismutase), MDA (malondialdehyde) and TNF-α (tumor necrosis factor-α) and CD62P (also called P-Selectin) activation rates were determined and compared among the three groups. The levels of IL-6, TNF-α, MDA and CD62P in group A were significantly higher than those of group B and group C (P less than 0.05). The SOD level of group A was lower than that of group B and group C (P less than 0.05). There was no significant difference between groups B and C in IL-6, TNF- αMDA, SOD and CD62P (P>0.05). In patients with vascular vertigo, TNF-α levels had a weak linear correlation with those of low-density lipoprotein (P = 0.025, r = 0.312). There was no linear correlation between TNF-α and SOD in patients with VV and non-VV. The occurrence of inflammatory reaction and oxidative stress may cause abnormal lipid metabolism in the body and promote the occurrence of VV, and platelet activ...

The vast majority of hearing loss, the most common sensory impairment, and vertigo, which commonly causes falls, both reflect underlying dysfunction of inner ear cells. Perilymph sampling can thus provide molecular cues to hearing and balance disorders. Wh...

This report has basically focused on scleroderma renal crisis (SRC), which is the most serious renal manifestation of SSc, characterized by renal failure and sudden onset of hypertension. A 44-year-old man was hospitalized with hypertension, headache, vertigo, nausea, rhinorrhea, reflux, dysphagia, dyspnea (Fc II), visual impairment, mechanical arthralgia, and edema (+3) accompanied by a rare skin lesion. Raynaud's phenomenon was also remarkable in fingers and toes. According to signs and symptoms, SSc diagnosed and the proper treatment was applied. It is of great importance that in the case of malignant hypertension in pa...

CONCLUSION: Our study supports the concept of NVCC in VP and additionally suggests that nerve angulation may be a specific feature. Neurovascular contact remains a common phenomenon in asymptomatic patients and therefore correlation with neuro-otology assessment remains essential.

This article illustrates the infracochlear approach to the petrous apex in the case of a diagnostic indication in a patient with an incidental, asymptomatic tumorous lesion of the right petrous apex with bony erosion. After the bone of the floor of the ear canal and the hypotympanum was removed, the carotid artery and the jugular bulb were identified using a diamond burr. The route to the petrous apex is triangled by the cochlea superiorly, the jugular bulb posteriorly, and the carotid artery anteriorly. After opening the petrous apex lesion, biopsies were taken. The defect in the floor of the ear canal and ...

Conclusion: While the exact role of intratympanic injections requires additional trials, triamcinolone resulted in similar outcomes compared to studies using dexamethasone or methylprednisolone. Due to favorable pharmacological properties, triamcinolone represents a safe and efficacious alternative for intratympanic treatment in idiopathic sensorineural hearing loss.

Conclusions: Diagnosis of vestibular symptoms in children with cCMV is complex, given the multiple morbidities than can occur. Peripheral vestibular causes should be considered in the diagnosis, as important vestibular deficits are demonstrated in this population.
